Dex, yeah, Suzi Quatro - I was too young to understand what the leathers meant; but did find her fascinating somehow (can see why now with the hindsight of adulthood wink ). cool

Latest viewing is still that BBC series of a few years ago, "Rome"; which I mostly missed when it was actually shown. cool

From the bits & pieces I saw whilst at RH Xmas tv was a pile of tosh.

The "demise" of Archie Mitchell in slow mo was a joke & the most obvious person who didn't commit the crime was arrested by the wally police. 50% of my bet would go on Peggy Mitchell being the murderer as she is leaving anyway. The other 50% would go on Queen Victoria herself who chucked herself off the bar as she was "not amused" by the whole fiasco!!

I caught about 5 minutes of David Tennant attempting to play Hamlet. He appeared to think he was playing Dr Who!!! As for Shakespeare being done in modern day settings.....gyakkk!!! I don't include the likes of West Side Story & such like in that comment - I purely mean Shakespeare plays being given a modern setting, not musicals based on a play.

The only thing I did watch in full & enjoy was the late John Thaw in "Goodnight Mr Tom". Not seen it before but thoroughly enjoyable.

Film wise - "The Eagle Has Landed" would by far have been the best film shown.

Totally agree about Christmas TV,utter mince!!! Although they did put a decent film on a couple of days later,,Heroes of Telemark. Now,did you mention the BBC series Rome,Pater? There's an actress there who is the double of my ex fiancee,I'm not sure if she is a main character,but I'd like to know her name etc and then I'll know who is Rachel's double!!
Anyway,Did see Top Gear Bolivia special,,enjoyed that immensely!
Hmmm,judging from what you said about Suzy Q,,I guess you and I are roughly similar ages?
Though I sort of grasped the idea about leathers!! lol!! biglaugh

Don't think I've ever seen that film all the way through but I did see bits & pieces of it the other day. The only other films that would have appealed to me would have been the musicals such as High Society but I can get those on video/DVD anyway!!

I even ended up watching James May playing with toy trains on Sunday!!

Having had several very hectic months I decided to relax over xmas so I've watched more TV than usual and in amongst the dross I've found gems such as Dr Who, a new Poirot, some Orson Welles films and documentaries. Also watched some of our new comedy dvds...Jimmy Carr and Peter Kay...excellent stuff. Working through my great xmas prezzies as well ie Rebus Season 4 and the first season of Quantum Leap, an old favourite...

Last night's viewing... Michael Jackson documentary, Guitar Heroes at the BBC and repeat of the Electric Dreams which featured Chris, Billy & Ultravox.

The recolourised pilot episode of "Are You Being Served" and the documentary on the show that preceded it.

The regeneration episode of "Dr Who", and the documentary on that too.

Plus Dad and I watched any comedies he could find; such as Laurel & Hardy. wink

Having a great afternoon/evening watching all this live footage of this amazing band who you may have heard of....plus lots of interview stuff. Quite a lot that I don't recall seeing before and it's proving a tremendous distraction from work especially a particular gentleman... wink

A nice start to 2010...a big thank you to the person who made that possible!

Just watched a really interesting history documentary, first of a four part series, 'Lost Kingdoms of Africa'. It began with the origins of the Nubians. Anyone else catch it? Must have been so cool getting the chance to play on a 7000(+) year old rock gong...precursor of the African drum...interesting sound.

I'm looking forward to The Survivors new series (I refuse to call them 'seasons'). I loved the original when I were a bairn and watched them all again a few years back. The new version isn't quite up to that standard (apart from MUCH improved acting) but it's still decent.

The original Survivors remains a favourite but like the new version too even though I still prefer the original...is there a scheduled date for the new series yet?

Take your point, mate; but it initially made the main characters look bad (wrongly) - then the emphasis shifted to how quick we all are to judge and accuse people of things, often with little or no evidence. As I am guilty myself of those particular "qualities", I thought it was useful they were highlighted. Simples, and end of story. It was really about "The Lynch Mob Mentality".

that episode, highlighted how people can be acused of things that are not true, and how in real life if it gets about that someone has so say done something the linch mob march in, the bbc would not show programmes that incourage things like that, and don't you think if it was that bad people would of complained and the series would of been banned

i am a parent and if i thought the show was in bad taste , i would be he first to complain

Fair comments from both of you especially with regards to what Lisa says about people complaining & the series banned. I'm assuming this programme is fiction but, is this programme by any chance based on an actual event that happened a few years ago (somewhere on a Scottish Island if I recall) whereby several children from a community were taken into care after parents/relatives were - as it turned out wrongly accused - of child abuse? Just seems a bit familiar to me from news reports at the time.
