Interesting to see the BBC highlights programme of the 1981 1st London Marathon yesterday, and the chaos at the finishing line.Did you see how narrow the line was, and all the helpers behind the line almost stopping people from getting through. It was great to see it run as an Amateur event too, and watching JPR Williams's sideburns finish 30 seconds ahead of him.

Yet to try "Gangs Of London" but on my "to do" list. I did watch the latest version of Van Der Valk with Marc Warren. I was a tad sceptical at first as my previous sightings of Warren were as very flakey characters. Have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this. Just a shame there are a mere three episodes!

Saturday/Daily kitchen should be binned Matt Tebbutt is duller than watching Featherstone.

????

Watching Fev is many things. Irritating. Annoying. Exhilarating. Anxiety promoting. Delirium promoting. 

But NEVER dull.

Now.... I watched casualty that the memsahib recorded yesterday as I was bored. Now that WAS dull. Time to send that series on a one way ticket to Zurich.

Watched this last night, superb.  Bob Monkhouse - The Last Stand.  Knowing he is dying, in summer of 2003 Bob Monkhouse entertains a room full of comedians with stand up, memories, chat and a comedy masterclass.  The night became the stuff of legends among comedians, but was not transmitted until long after his death.

Aren't you glad you never worked for a manager like Villanelle? "Okay, it is your first day and, while you haven't done the job 100% properly, you've tried really hard and pretty much got it done. Here's a bullet through the back of your head as a reward."

the bbc take the licence payers money and spend it on a reality show that is exactly the same as "one born every minute" on another channel - if there is no new ideas don't bother at all

did the bloke who invented the phrase "one hit wonder" invent anything else?

Revisiting the excellent 'Nero Wolfe' series from the early 2000s. This is a great first episode.

watching full episodes of "love thy neighbour" on youtube - fantastic on screen chemistry between the actors jack Smethurst and Randolph walker, its obvious the writers were not mocking race but actually taking the rip out of racism itself with jacks ignorance and bigotry being exploited for what it was and him coming out as the fool at the end of every story line with bill always having the upper hand, great to look back at when comedy was actually very funny and actors were not stage school fed prima donnas - of course it wouldn't be repeated on tv today as the british public cant be trusted to actually think about what they are watching
