    Background: Christmas circus in London is a traditional must for Papas. Rousted from home, bar, fire-port-and television warmth, they make an annually unwilling pilgrimage to the shrine of circadolatry, and come back converted. Visnews went to the winter quarters of Bertram Mills Circus at Ascot to see what skill and daring is in store for us all at Olympia again this year - and met....but who worries about names at a time like this.
