Yeah I agree Ben but how do you feel about the female commentators?   I really don’t like them, they may be ex-international cricketers and footballers but to me it doesn’t seem right, I can’t listen to them.

Same on Final Score on Saturday afternoons. They're very knowledgable, but it just seems strange.

They gave Vicki Sparks the 2nd to last match Wolves v Watford on last nights MOTD, I only watch MOTD from catch-up, so I can skip Lineker & Co & any after match interviews.

I recently watched the Joanna Lumley series on Japan. As usual, she came across extremely well in her own amicable way.

What a strange race they are though in their lifestyle, but not a sign of litter, vandalism or graffiti.

She finished off on the island of Okinawa, and how they've adapted post WW2. Jesus Christ, what a bloodbath. Nearly a quarter of a million casualties on all sides, and virtually all the local population used as human shields or forced into the army. Unbelievable !

I also watched Love your garden, with the obsequious short arsed but much appreciated Alan Titchmarsh the other night.

His gang did a tremendous job on renovating the large garden of a poor chap who contracted meningitis and sepsis in his mid 40's. He's had to have amputation treatment on all four limbs. I know that a lot of these heart wrenching stories are virtually unwatchable, but this one really hit home for some reason. 

Maybe it's because I love gardening so much, that I'd be devastated if for any reason I was prevented in doing so.

Anyway, well done to Alan and his gang.

Not sure which channel I got it from.. but last night I watched a recording of the 1944 classic 'Laura'.

 

I only recall seeing it once before, and I'd completely mis-remembered the plot and the denouement.

 

In the end.. a very satisfying old time combination of thriller.. detective story and romance.

 

And this.. , based on the original film's instrumental score..has always been one of my favourite songs.. I do believe I have a 78 of it somewhere in the loft...  :)

Interesting watch..

 

Episode 5 of 'Murder, Mystery & my family' on the BBC, broadcast last Friday', covers a case in Nottingham in the 1930"s. 

 

The barge episode

Also has a Nott's connection..

One program that has me in stitches, is 'Not going out ' with Lee Mack. All the series have me in stitches, no matter how many times I watch them.

I have been watching Not Going Out on Dave. Caught it by chance when I was channel flicking, like Lee Mack on Would I Lie To You so decided to give it a go. I find it very funny and always watch it when it is on now.

Used to watch " not going out", but not watched it since I  saw Lee Mack on a live in concert and every other word was swearing. I'm  not a prude but it were totally unnecessary,  having to resort to swearing to get a laugh.

Not watched him since. 'Would I lie to you' would be a great show but for that camera hogger, Rob Brydon.

Turned out to be an Ilkeston based case, if I recall correctly.

Take it you weren't  too enamored  then Compo. Got the original and Tom cruise version.

I were a bit disappointed  with the end, however, it were well made.

We watched it too and found it very slow moving, but perhaps that  was a deliberate ploy to emphasise the hopelessness of the situation?   Because the story was set in the late 1890s I think it was trying to mimic old films in lots of ways.   I thought it was interesting but I. wouldn't bother watching it again.... began to feel a bit sorry for the martians towards the end!

Took me a while to realise that they started jumping forward and back in time. At first I  wondered who the 10 year old boy was, til it dawned on me what were happening. Marvellous what they can do with CG nowadays.

OK..??

 

Not going out...liked the Tim Vine stuff.

Later episodes..Lidl wine was funny.

The Dump wisecrack in the haunted house Christmas special was also a very good predictable classic!!
