The great 1981 adaptation of Day of the Triffids is being repeated on BBC4 at the moment.

Damn! How did I miss spotting this in the listings? Great book, and the BBC had a pretty decent shot at adapting it for the screen.

I felt exactly the same way when I saw it was on. Fortunately you can play catch up on the iPlayer.

Just watched Elton John go base over apex (keeping it clean, eh?) in a touching tribute to John Kear when Hull FC won the Challenge Cup.  :biggrin:

On BBC Three: Our War: Goodbye Afghanistan. Brilliant perspective from those serving/served, with a lot of video filmed by those on the ground.

There's a Spike Milligan documentary tonight on BBC4, followed by the first of two 30-minute 'Q' compilations.

Thanks for that, Sky+ box set. :)

Graham Norton Show. Can someone please explain to me why Jim Carrey is funny?

He's a Canadian??? 

Sorry, I realise you're the King of bleedin' comedy, and you're ###### cheap.

"The Newsroom" finished last night. I highly recommend finding the 3 series on-demand or in box set. It is, in my opinion, brilliant!

Three good, but different-style, finalists in next week's Portrait Artist of the Year.

 

 

One of them is from Wigan. She's not my favourite but I think she'll win.

She's young, pretty and delicate-looking, so I'm guessing she's lying about the Wigan bit.

;) ;) :tongue:

Well, there you go then. I best  like the the works by the lady who uses watercolour.

 

I also wanted the American guy who paints on wax to get to the final.
