Watched a show on Sky Atlantic called The Leftovers. Pretty bloody bizzare.

I recorded it but I'm unsure whether I can be fussed or not to watch it.

I am mostly pro-BBC, despite them clogging the schedules with the tripe of Eastenders and a slew of creepily arch antiques experts and glorified estate agents, but The Symphony of Medinah indicates that some folk just need shooting. Right in the nuts.

Shocking, just wrong on every level.

My thoughts too. I can't get my head round that fag smoking sect.

I also tried The Last Ship and Mr Bean in Legends.

I've just worked my way through the Dr James Fox "Tale of three cities" - Vienna 1908, Paris 1928, and New York 1951.  

 

Thoroughly enjoyed the series and have learned a lot.  Would heartily recommend it for a passionate yet not up himself arty type bloke describing three ages which, though long gone, still resonate today.

 

Next up, the full Peaky Blinders first series.  I only managed to catch the first two last time round.  Am already smitten by the undercover barmaid.

Only just spotted they were repeating 'Peaky Blinders'. Very much enjoyed it when it was first on, but am a little worried that the second series might not live up to the first.

The Long Shadow that's starting on BBC2.

Fuelling my obsession with WW1. I've got high expectations.

Spoiler alert! 

We won!

It was alright.  I've been spoiled recently by binge listening to the IWM's Voices of the First World War podcasts.

really enjoyed it. I liked the different approach and the slight debunking of some entrenched ideas.

I watched the last half hour of 'Marvellous' after the Rugby had finished. Really enjoyed it. :)

I'll add to the praise for Marvelous. Real feel good tv, one of the best things on the box all year.

Queen live from 1975 on BBC4 now. Bloody good.

Have been flicking between Bowie and Queen on BBC 4 and Fleetwood Mac on Sky Arts this evening. Great stuff.

Ziggy Stardust: The Farewell Concert was on earlier in the evening. Missed it because of the Rugby, so I may snag myself a copy with get_iplayer.

Another wrinkle on the TotP2 concept - old footage, mixed with new live performances of old hits. A silver-haired Boz Scaggs doing 'Lido Shuffle' right now. Alice Cooper on soon.

quadrophenia can you see the real me, the story of the making of the album was on on Monday. Still available on the IPlayer:http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01k83bl/quadrophenia-can-you-see-the-real-me

IMHO rock operas miss the point entirely

Other than the rather pretentious phrase "rock opera" I like the idea of telling a story in song, or in this case, collection of songs. There's a strong tradition of story telling in British music dating back hundreds of years.
