When her canine companion and co-star is lured away by an unsavory movie producer, Jocasta Carr flies off on an adventurous journey to rescue her beloved dog.

Listen to an audio clip

She's in her flying kit, and she's wearing a grass-green coloured scarf round her neck to keep warm. You should be able to find the tail of it hanging down the front of her smart white pullover. I'd have thought it might get a bit grubby, flying around, but I think Jocasta's too smart to have a dirty jumper. Her arms are hanging down by her sides. A long time ago when aeroplanes first started to become popular, pilots used to wear jodhpurs when they flew, as if they were riding a horse. That's exactly what Jocasta's wearing, held up by a brown belt which you should find going straight across her middle. Old-fashioned jodhpurs such as these stick out like balloons round the wearer's thighs, and then go tight round the calves so that they can be tucked into knee-length boots - just as Jocasta has done.
