Masters of the Air on Apple from today.

It has a lot to live up to after Band of Brothers and The Pacific.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

The 1966 Batman movie is currently on Talking Pictures TV. A brightly-coloured bit of silly (but comprehensively-labelled) fun for a grey January day.

Cunk’s Quest for Meaning - coming soon.

Philomena Cunk says: “To be honest I thought we could cover the meaning of life in a 30-minute episode, but the producers said we might need a bit longer and that I could probably go to America if we did a special. I’m very excited to be going to America for free.”

Charlie Brooker says: “What sort of quote do you want for your press release? I haven’t got time to think about this, I’m late for a Zoom. Oh for God’s sake. Okay, just print something bland like "I’m thrilled Philomena is returning to our screens to help us uncover the meaning of life” - that’ll do. Now go away and leave me alone. I said go away. Go! Leave! Why are you still standing there? You’re freaking me out now. Get out. GO.”

Tonight at 9:05pm on BBC4, Mel Brooks: Unwrapped.
With the aid of the BBC archive, Alan Botney and Mel Brooks embark on an unpredictable journey through the city of stars, meeting the legendary Carl Reiner along the way.

Followed by a 50th anniversary showing of "Blazing (you couldn't broadcast that these days, you know!) Saddles".

Lazing about this afternoon I watched again - for the umpteenth time - what I consider to be the greatest comedy sketch I have seen.

Just two words ‘Andrew Preview’.

I enjoy watching the orchestra's reaction. They absolutely love it!

Always a delight.

The Space Shuttle That Fell to Earth on BBC2, is an excellent documentary.

It always amuses me that one of the best lines, IMHO, from Andre Previn seems to be missed by the audience.

When Eric is explaining to Andre that he cannot see Andre’s cue for when to start playing the Piano, Eric asks ‘Can’t you wear high heels’.  The audience start laughing and you can just about hear Andre reply ‘Again!’.

Horrific sight, the sort of thing you never forget.

My missus watches Love Island  and I hate that show with the he narcissist young along with other reality tv BUT I couldn't help to having sneaky looks throught the door with one of the contestants who was called Joanna Chimonides but sadly she was voted out and was one of the few who seemed less plastic.

It's still a show.
