There's a repeated showing at 11.20pm tonight on BBC2 of the brilliant programme about the epic "Big Freeze" winter of 1963.

It was made immediately after that icy winter which almost totally blanked out the nation's sporting calendar between Christmas 1962 and March 1963.

In rugby league the resumption of play kick started the Lions' long run of wins which brought the Championship to Station Road by May.

Highly recommended viewing. :o

Cheers Keith. I saw that on the listings last night and was disappointed that I'd missed it.

The club where Eurovision isn't a dirty word. A waltz through the leopard skin lined world of Tom Jones, Bert Kampfert and Burt Bacharach. Step out to the sound of the happy hammond and swing to the seductive sounds of the samba.

DJ's, raffles, cocktails and wide collars. Please dress smart. Gentlemen might like to wear a suit.

Same price. Same music. Same rubbish prizes.
