Speakers’ Corner: THE BEAR & THE DRAGON

JUST AS IN the previous videos, ‘A SUNDAY IN PARADISE’ (2003) and ‘STARSKY AND HUTCH GET ANGRY’ (2004) here again ‘THE BEAR & THE DRAGON’ (2011) presents a little public speaking by Hue and Nicholas, but in the 16:9 widescreen format, and specially edited for YouTube.
