I knew I'd lose it so I put it in a safe place, and now I can't remember where it is.

Everyone here keeps asking me where Alabama is. So, to enlighten little Britain, here's a map.

Alabama is bordered by Mississipi, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida. I'm going to be pretty slap bang in the middle of it, a little to the left.

Alabama was the heartland of the civil rights movement. Martin Luther King came from here. (I've been reading up on the movement while on holiday...John Lewis's memoir 'Walking with the Wind')

Alabama covers 52,000 square miles and has a population of 4.5 million. By comparison the UK covers 94,000 square miles with a population of 60 million - 7 times as densely populated.

I don't know much else about Alabama, yet...
