  1. Not sure about the beeb, but Micron Video probably have what you want: http://www.micronvideo.co.uk/database_sales.asp
  2. Don't forget the physical fitness side of things: https://www.rugby-league.com/active_at_home
  3. A very mixed bag when it comes to quality, but I tend to give each one about 10 minutes before deciding whether it is worth my time to continue listening. Radio 4's Book of the Week and Book at Bedtime are similar. Some real gems pop up now and again, and I have bought a few books, based on these readings.
  4. Does it really increase or decrease even-ness of the contest? Not really. If a dominant team kicked off, they would be chasing hard and pinning their opponents down their end of the field. If a dominant team received the kick, they'd have possession and could pressure the other side in attack. Neither is a panacea, in a game where the best side on the day usually wins.
  5. Bill Withers is a sad loss, even if he'd had a good innings. I'm playing his 'Live at Carnegie Hall' album right now.
  6. I only saw Jon Feeley once for Bradford, at the Middlesex Sevens. Very very quick, but I though he'd been borrowed from the now-defunct Wakefield RU club. He's coaching Wharfedale RUFC these days, along with fellow former Wakefield RUFC player Jon Skurr, who also represented the Bulls at Twickenham.
  7. Injuries and illness have also accounted for the low number of appearances, but yes, there is a question of past attitude and agent influence that he needs to shake off.
  8. For a lot of the people applauding, it will be as much about giving themselves a bit of a lift and feeling less isolated, just by doing something social. Being part of something communal, after a couple of weeks of being shut up most of the day and shunning contact. Each to their own.
  9. There's probably a thread on AOB called Nineties Stand-up Comedians who, quite frankly, phoned it in. You know, "I haven't got any actual jokes, but whatever happened to Spangles, white dog turds, etc. etc.?"
  10. A rough idea of how much storage space you need would help, as cloud services have limits for their basic tariff/free accounts.
  11. Ellis Marsalis, jazz pianist and father of Branford and Wynton.
  12. Looks like the documentary has made it to Australian TV.
  13. There are at least 80 universities in China dedicated to this subject. And while some of the research into plant properties etc. may prove valuable, their official status does also perpetuate animal cruelty.
  14. All very well for some, but I have the opposite of "green fingers". Over the years, I think I may have killed more plants than agent orange.
  15. I've noticed that, with my card, I still have to do the PIN thing every now and then. Too many contactless transactions in a row, and it requires the extra security check of entering the number. You can have your card stolen and have a certain amount taken, but the card then becomes useless without the PIN.
  16. Idris had the physical attributes to be a big star. However, on several occasions I saw him play, he didn't seem to have the brain to match. He seemed to mentally switch off for a few seconds every now and then, and attackers would take advantage of it.
