Shown today on Talking Pictures TV, James Mason mooches round London, smoothly voicing over the odd, the ordinary, the funny and the sad. Very much worth a watch.

BBC2 - a wonderful hour-long tribute to Raymond Briggs has just finished (fire up the iPlayer!), to be followed by 'Ethel & Ernest'.

I only caught the second half of the tribute and the other Geese wanted to watch something else so couldn't watch Ethel & Ernest despite the other Geese having never seen it before and my insistence it's one of the greatest animations ever. Gonna be an emotional night of iplayer watching for me.

RIP Raymond, enjoy walking in the air forever more! 😢

Sky History … An Unknown Compelling Force , a 2 hour documentary on the Dyatlov Pass mystery . I’d highly recommend it . It’s also on YouTube

Started watching the Sandman on Netflix.  Never read the comic but its good so far.  

We watched episode 5 during the week, episode called 24/7. Properly good telly. Thoroughly enjoying it and we'll probably finish the rest this weekend.

Exceptional. Beyond exceptional.

C5 have been knocking out some decent drama series lately - Compulsion, Deadline and Witness Number 3 are all worth a watch.

As is Sequestered which is on the STV player.

C5 drama and documentaries are very good , I watch more C5 than BBC1 I’d reckon

Have now finished it.

It's up there with the best things Netflix have done and easily amongst the best TV of the year.

Indeed , horrendous injuries . And theyd ran away from the tent with often no warm gear . Often the simplest explanation is truth and yes i think some group murdered them as there were several sacred  sites around

Gaiman knows how to play the game.

Second series commissions are based on a certain amount of launch data.

This is a perfect bump.

It’s also excellent TV.
