Day for night

So much for our clever Night Watch segue. One of our readers, Boris, has put us right, explaining that the film by Timur Bekmambetov is actually called Dnevnoy Dozor or, in English, Day Watch. Kindly, Boris also mentioned that Rembrandt’s Night Watch is not actually a night scene, as you will have discovered if you followed the know-it-all link. Thanks for letting us off the hook Boris. At least we managed to avoid calling it Bay Watch, which is something.
