Could be, but then wouldn't she be jumpping up and down with joy, but unfortunately that is not the answer because I am pretty sure there marrage is still stable. But good answer anyway. grin

When are us women ever late rolleyes. Sorry that is not the correct answer, when I said she dropped him of for the 7:30am train, he did get that train.

Hmm... maybe he was the one who bombed the train?  Or there was more than one train which fit the description "7:30 am train from Birmingham to London", and he wasn't on the one that got bombed?

The report said that there were no fatalities?  Her husband was shown on TV as a survivor?

Mina her husband did not bomb the train and there was only one train going from Birmingham to London at 7:30.

Alassiel, I did say it was later that day she saw the incident on the news.

Alysse, even if there were no fatalities I think you would still be quite worried if your husband was on the train.

Later that day she was watching a TV program and there was a report that the 7:30 am train from Birmingham to London had been bombed yet she did not panic at all. Why was she not afraid for her husband’s life?

Alassiel's and Alysse's guesses sound good but it seems a bit of a stretch she didn't panic if the bomb was acvtual in the train of her husband. Why was she watching "a TV program", why does it not say the news? Also "had been bombed" could mean it happen sometime in the past. Did she watch a documentary about some past event as Alassiel suggested?

ups. Still the answer would make sense within the bounds of the wording. ;)

Miraran, her husband was not a reporter because he was on a train.

Rakshiri, you know when you are watching TV and when there is some important news they will interupt a program to report it, that is what happened you are actually close about it being in the past but you have not quite got it yet.

Tip: Think why I said she was watching a "TV program" rather than simply saying she was watching TV.

She was watching a movie that just happened to have a news report about a train bombing in it with the train being the same one as the one her husband took?

You are getting so close, although if she was watching a movie then that would not be watching a "TV program" would it, the bombing actually did happen.

Could the "TV program" be interpreted as a "TV Guide" she was reading, and it said that there will be a program about a bombing that happened at some time in the past, say, she read about a documentary on that incident?

I think I have a language barrier about the meaning of "TV program". Was she watching a TV program on tape which she recorded in the past and which had the news report cut in?

Rakshiri, yes you have got it, she was watching a take recorded at some point in the past that was interrupted by a news report of the bombing on the train at 7:30 am from Birmingham to London.
