"The Tale of Thomas Burberry"

Voiceover

Your father can imagine a whole world in his head.  
What have you got there, Burberry? 
I made it. 
No one sees the world like my Tom. 
I intend to lead a group of men to the Antarctic. And I'm looking for someone to supply the entire expedition with protective clothing. What is this? 
It's what you've been looking for.  
People come to me with their dreams.  
Betty Dawson is going to attempt the impossible. She plans to break the world record and fly London to Cape Town in 48 hours.  
And I help bring them to life.  
Miss Dawson. 
And what about your own dreams? 
This is our life now. 
Just to bring you up to date on the news of Europe. Great Britain is now at war. 
British mechanised troops rattle across the frontier into Belgium.  
Your father can imagine a whole world in his head.  
We should make sight of her any minute now in Cartoon where she'll touch down just long enough to refuel on her way to Cape Town. 
Do you love her? 
Your father can imagine a whole world in his head. 
 
(Lyrics) Oh, the storm clouds were moving across your eyes, and I 
Could hear the war drums pounding from inside your mind 
 
My heart shattered apart with your sanity 
Hold on to each other 
Or I fear we won't recover 
 
On your side, on your 
I'm still on your side 
On your side, on your 
I'm still on your side 
 
There, there, it's better late than never 
Never say never again 
Over and over
