those of you old enough will remember Legs & Co on Top of the Pops.

For some reason I looked up the dance group on wiki. Someone wrote this:
"when Pauline Peters left the group in March 1981, she was eventually replaced by singer and dancer Anita Mahadervan, the first Asian dancer to appear on Top of the Pops, although Anita did make occasional appearances before 1981."

Anita was the first Asian dancer eh? As Pauline comes from Burma, where in the world did the writer think Pauline was from?!?!

Crap

If Anita made occasional appearances before joining Legs & Co in 1981, is it not conceivable that one (or more) of these appearances were before Pauline's first appearance in 1976?

that may be very true TivvyAl, but you must admit that if the writer meant that, it's been badly worded.
all the best

Pauline Peters doesn't sound very Burmese to me, was she just born in Burma to English parents, or is she of mixed Burmese/British blood?

Is Burma Asian is one of the queries.

I still haven't recovered from seeing Legs and Co "intepreting" Bankrobber" by The Clash

As Burma was once part of the Indian empire, I bloody well hope Burma's in Asia!

India was part of the British Empire. Does that mean it's in the British Isles?

Everyone and his dog was writing on Wikipedia so to get valuable links. Now they have set links to no-follow the quality might start to rise.
