My googling tells me that it's the degree of frost that does the damage, and I know of a modern apricot (either Flavourcot or Tomcot -not sure which) growing on a south-east wall which has fruited well for the past four years.
I'm planning to grow a Flavourcot against a south-east facing fence, but it has the added advantage of being sheltered to the east by mature ash trees - if they survive!
Have got an apricot in lean-to greenhouse on East facing wall; this is its' first year, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it likes its' position.
