These sort of shows are exactly what pubs were invented for. :) (That's my excuse anyway, and I'm sticking to it)

to the pub it is, seriously though how does your head work if you find things like this remotely interesting? cos plenty do!

Going to the pub "early doors" on a Saturday is a carry over from my playing days (and the only regular drinking I do these days). Why indeed.  :search:

I share your confusion on this. Saturday evening light entertainment has always baffled me. My only guess is that it is comforting and safe.

I see there's a new series of the highly predictable, formulaic "Bad Education". I confess I rather enjoyed the first one.

The second season of The Newsroom is brilliant.

Totally agree! Great telly!

GOLD are also showing Jeeves & Wooster from the beginning. Never watched it first time around but I'm enjoying it now.

Finished the first series of Bates Motel earlier this week.  Very good and far better than I thought it would be.  Brilliant casting as well for it with the young Norman Bates picking up Anthony Perkins' traits in the movie perfectly

I didn't realise it but the BBC's new showpiece drama series Peaky Blinders was filmed in Bradford.

It's the closest they could get to England in the 1920's.

 

:(

 

Having said that, we've still kept most of our beautiful old sandstone buildings. Fortunately the council planning department is lazy as well as useless and never got round to okaying the demolition of all the buildings that it wanted to be replaced by pre-cast concrete junk and corrugated tin sheds.

They had a damn good try though.

No, but because of the timidity of private sector property developers there's an enormous hole in the city centre.

It hasn't stopped similar development happening in other cities. Smaller places too. The council are to blame for not having clauses in for non completion, or rather non starting, of the job. It's pretty outrageous actually.

The developer, Westgate, bought the site from the council for £50million cash and about forty shops and businesses shut down  (my estimate). When the downturn came, it offered to sell the site back. The council didn't have the money.

 

However, the council has found £24million to build a set of fountains in the city centre.

 

The council reportedly got £50million cash from the sale of Leeds Bradford Airport. As far as I am aware, there's been no official statement on where that's gone.

I rather enjoyed 'The Wipers Times' on BBC2 last night... although I'm a little reluctant to mention it on TRL, as it will no doubt generate 10 pages of opinions about the class system in the early 20th century. ;)
