I’ve really missed catching up on everyone’s news but things should get a little easier on the work front soon.
So before I go have a wander over for a visit, here are some linky dinks.
The UK Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell has apparently said “It’s fashionable to knock the number of repeats on television and blame the laziness of the broadcasters. But I believe there’s a real public service in keeping these memories alive.” She was talking about “the classics” but it got me thinking about the programmes I’d like to see repeated. First thoughts are Nice Town with Paul McGann and Josette Simon (did anyone watch this apart from me?); Marion and Geoff (one of the best things on tv in the past twenty years) and Belle and Sebastian (loved this as a child). Oh and Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads monologues. Especially the one with Thora Hird. So what would you like to see repeated?
I also heard about a play shown about 15 years ago where Timothy Spall plays Margaret Rutherford. That would be a good repeat, no? And how could I forget NYPD Blue? My first job as world leader would be to show daily repeats…
