I watched a great film on Sky last night ... The Debt, starring Helen Mirren as a former Mossad agent.

It's ok. I've thought of an even better alternative. Pub. :D

Yep just the one. I only have the one pair of eyes. ;)

I'm sure there are a fair few on here that would have enjoyed Speed Dreams: The Fastest Place on Earth, last night on BBC2.

It follows six British teams and their speed record attempts, five on bikes, one in a car. A lot of footage of hairy blokes in sheds, tinkering with a pretty wide range of machinery.

The first episode ended with them arriving at the Bonneville Salt Flats, so next week we'll see whether they succeed or fail.

I enjoyed the programme about the 50th anniversary of the recording of the Beatles first album.

Joss Stone is a good singer but a moron.
beverley Knight blew the whole thing to bits with Twist and Shout, and it was good to see half of the Mersey Beats back together-very underrated band.

Been really enjoying "wonders of life" having this on straight after "Africa" finished the BBC have been spoiling me recently. They really do those types of programs so much better than anyone else, the camera work on Africa was out of this world.

I agree, excellent show. Whilst they have simplified the science they haven't dumbed it down. I don't understand everything that is presented on first viewing but they have got the balance right between explaining the biology/chemistry and nature photography (borrowed from the Attenborough series).

It's good that they still make shows that expand peoples knowledge rather than, the increasing number that, insult peoples intelligence.

I thought it was ok, similar gear to where it left off. It didn't blow me away though.

Didn't spot that. I must say I was getting distracted by the majesty of St Pauls whilst listening to what Peter Hitchens had to say. Just as well really.

Being the BBC, does that mean they have to do the rounds and visit a monumental religious building for each major religion?!
