New to this channel is certainly a common thing, I'll watch a show new to quest say but because that channel is affiliated to discovery it will be a show that was on that channel about 5 years ago.

David is right about the compilation thing as well. I was watching some episodes of Police Interceptors last year and it said they were new but I'd definitely seen bits of them. They'd clearly just cut and shut a few episodes together and repackaged them. 

MonsterQuest was NEW to Sky History 2 ... from 2008 !

Watched the final episode of Years and Years tonight. Then straight away watched the news. I wasn't 100% sure that it wasn't the same programme.

This should please those of you living in the "Rhubarb Triangle",

I was watching Michael Potillo's Great British Railway Journeys this morning, and he was travelling between Leeds & Sheffield, stopping off at Batley, Dewsbury, Saltaire, and Wakefield, and on his journey he visited the Rhubarb farms of a Mrs. Oldroyd, and visited the forcing sheds that she has, I then turned over to ITV where James Martin was 'cooking' on "This Morning" with Rhubarb from a certain farm run by E. Oldroyd & Sons who do online delivery.

Personally I can't stand the stuff, but it was an amazing coincidence, don't you think?

Where were you last Thursday?

Repeats of Pointless sometimes have a poignancy; one of the competitors on today's episode was a young guy from Warrington, who wanted to spend his jackpot on following his team to Toronto to see them play the Wolfpack.

Having said that, he and his team partner didn't have a clue in the final, based on Motown songs. But at least he got the trophy to take home. That's something for a Warrington lad.

Oh look, the celebrities on a celeb edition of a quiz show won the jackpot again... what a surprise... *eye roll*

Question was: How do you spell your REAL name? Goosey would need a credit card.

Just watched a documentary yesterday on the History Channel - Camp X: Secret Agent School - about how during WW2 the British SOE set up training camps in Canada to train American OSS agents before the US entered the war.  The programmes producer was looking at a very recently declassified wartime SOE training document that referred to  searching prisoners. It said -

Searching Prisoners

1. Kill the prisoner

2. Search him.

3. If you need to keep him alive, beat him with a pistol or rifle butt or your boots.  When unconscious, search him.

Not very sporting, what !!!

I have had a post removed.

On this mornings BBC Breakfast, they were interviewing 2x GP's about the Coronavirus Vaccinations, one was in Beverley, one was in Horsham, in the background of the Horsham GP's Surgery was an eye-test chart, and on the 4th level was 4 letters, H O A X in that order, was this a coincidence, and why was my original post removed?

I watched Night Stalker on consecutive evenings . There’s wackos and then there’s this bloke , crazy crazy . Few to many graphic crime scene photos would be the only down side I’d say

At moment our focus is on the lighter the better, I can't imagine why? And we are flitting between Sky, Prime & Netflix in search of as many untroubling things as we can find.

Wandavision on disney plus from marvel is a brilliant take on 60s sitcoms filmed at first in black and white and in narrow screen as if watching an old series, with each episode around 30 mins is well worth a watch.

A few unexpected hours off so we watched this a couple of nights ago. Strange, confusing, disjointed... and hurry up with more episodes!

First one was Dick Van Dyke Show, they apparently even brought him in to consult on setup.

Cheers. 

The show is weird but I'm intrigued and enjoying it. No idea where it's going.

I think that's as good an explanation of why Lockdown has proved as problematic as it has; I think the tele only becones your window on the World if you watch the news.

Just caught this Bay filmed in morecambe and its decent, also managed to get into the bridge after a couple goes and its catching.

 Hrad work finding things to get stuck into, i dont understand why so many discovery programs have someone banging hell out of the drums all way thru, or switching to some muppet a few times telling us in detail waving arms about what we have just see anyway.

Rob Bell is the worst for that , talking as if he is telling a bedtime story to a 3 year old.

My wife and I find him unintentionally funny as he has only one pitch, which is total excitement. he hasn't run out of superlatives yet.
