Going Places

Billy Hopkins / Christopher Kay
It's 1950 and when Laura and Billy Hopkins return to Manchester from their honeymoon they're in seventh heaven despite the austerity that has been going on since World War II. But the euphoria gradually evaporates and they settle into a penny-pinching existence on Billy's teaching salary as babies and bills appear with alarming regularity.When Billy spots an advertisement for education officers in Kenya it sounds like the answer to all their prayers despite worries about the Mau Mau rebellion and the omnipresence of dangerous creatures. After much family debate Laura Billy and the junior Hopkins set off to Nairobi on a BOAC Argonaut and start on the biggest adventure of their lives.
