The other night, I caught the last half of part 1 of the drama about Kerry Packer. The guy who plays Packer is terrific! Really looking forward to part 2.

Part 1 is repeated at 10:30 tonight on BBC4. Well worth watching/recording.

They obviously vet the candidates business plans?  How do they get this far before deciding the plans are hopeless?


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

It's like they don't watch the programme before hand...

From what little I've seen, I doubt any of them are bright enough to figure out how to turn a TV set on...

chesney wants to stick with Sinead(how she's putting up with him I don't know) and forget the ghastly katie

 

also the Carl saga is dragging on. Needs sorting and with a big denouement.

 

I'm balled off with her in the wheelchair as well: she wants pushing in the canal..the canal not having featured in a plot for a while.

 

Watched the Rod Stewart Imagine what an asshole and the number of kids didn't match up with the number of parents and joanna lumley wasn't mentioned, not that I can stand her...her career seems to be a series of free holidays in which she gazes into the middle distance at dusk and says 'breathtaking'

 

Starlings isnt bad-some good acting talent going one there.

I'm about to settle down and watch the Imagine Don McCullin programme on the Iplayer.  Really looking forward to this.  Saw his exhibition at the IWMN a few years ago and had my breath taken away.

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

Had to take a pause halfway through.  Very powerful stuff indeed.

 

Loins girded for part two tonight.

Got it on video mate. Some crumpet turns up, Stan connects the wrong socket and Olive takes a dump in the wrong place. Arthur says 'You great lump' and it all ends happily as Blakey breaks his foot staring at some cleavage. (Actually, that was me)

I just saw a prog about Stradivarius. It may have been about violins, I'm not sure. I spent the whole half hour gawping at Clemency Burton-Hill. Even if she does sound like the heroime of John Betjeman poem.

There's a short piece in the Times today about the new head of the BBC sying that something must be done to stop actors mumblig their lines in TV dramas. I'm with him on this; it's very obvious on imported American shows and films but British series aren't immune.

 

I watch most things on playback but, where an actor's line is a single word of dialogue, I sometimes, even after several rewinds,  struggle to decipher what he/she said.

 

My hearing is not brilliant, but several of my friends experience the same problem.
