    From their movie length adaptation of the beloved classic 'Swallows and Amazons'

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016...c-film-change/

    The family of the woman who inspired Arthur Ransome’s character Titty in Swallows and Amazons have told of their fury after the new BBC film changed her name to Tatty.
    What's your opinion? Should source literature be 'updated' to reflect modern language or should the classics be left unaltered?

    It's not just classical literature being changed to suit modern tastes - just ask Guy Gibson's dog.

    Well considering they stand for big black **** and haven't changed that yet, it is worrying indeed what they see so bad about titty or titties in general. Titties are great. We should all love a pair of titties a day and the world would be so much more peaceful.

    I don't think it was. It was a reference to their own name and its acronym.
