Swim!

MINIMALIST “LEARN to swim” lessons with RON PICKERING, plus a professional swimmer who wasn’t David Wilkie or anyone properly famous, and the obligatory “kids of mixed swimming abilities” at a flashy, ultra-noisy pool. A damn sight better than the usual municipal effort the watching child would have at their disposal, with nary a stained Elastoplast or snapped polystyrene float in sight, but it remained largely unused for most of the show, as Pickering and swimmerblokey preferred to demonstrate the various strokes by getting a kid to do them in slow motion sprawled across a chair on the pool “concourse”.
