Have you noticed when you look at the listings that when a new TV prog/series is shown the prefix "NEW" is given. I'm sure it used show R when the prog was a REPEAT.... says it all really.......

The telly is so poor that my wife and I are watching the entire series of The West Wing. We're a bit late to the party, but it's a great series. It's even made me buy a book on American Politics, to help me understand it better.

Same here, t.v. is dreadful during the summer, However, going
through the many channels, I came across one that was about
Marilyn Monroe's trip to England while making a movie with
Laurence Olivier (strange combination) called " My week with
Marilyn." It was quite interesting about an employee,
(Colin Clark) of Sir Laurence Olivier who fell hard for Marilyn
and the tense interaction between Olivier and Marilyn Monroe during the
making of the movie (he disliked her intensely) She on the
other hand felt totally inadequate starring with such a fantastic world
renowned classic actor.
Really enjoyed the English scenery and the private boarding school
that Colin Clark showed her around that he had attended from the
age of eight.

We watched the opener of "The Loch" earlier - a wee bit grisly but we'll be there again next week!

The classic tv series A Family At War from the early 70s has a re run starting Wednesday 14th June at 6 pm on the freeview channel Talking Pictures channel number 81.
How the events of WW 2 affected various members of a lower middle class family in Liverpool, the emphasis being on life on the home front.

Ta guys.
Keith; I vaguely remember that prog though I didn't watch it regularly first time around; perhaps I will this time.
Watched The Loch - brain extracted through the nostril.... grisly indeed Bern but like you, we'll be there next week!
Fearless last night looks to be an interesting one but am I recognising shades of Line of Duty in the storyline?

Thanks for that heads up, Keith. I love the series, but it's still quite expensive to buy. I thought they got the theme music spot on.

Put Family at War on to record and watched the first episode the other night. Some good acting but wish Davey would give over with the phoney scouse accent. Looking forward to further episodes...
I'm an avid Corrie fan but getting really fed up with the time the storylines are taking to unravel...... WHEN is Feelan going to get his!!!

We're watching Greys Anatomy series 5 , our friends from Netherton , staying with us say they are watching series 14 and they are laughing at how people have changed and how the plot changed. When Katherine Heigl goes out of it I'll stop watching. :D Ken

Bee, this is a cracking thread well done you.

Very good programme the other night Tuesday 13th June BBC 1 Mike and Jules, While We Still Have Time.

Its about Mike Peters frontman of the band The Alarm. Mike was diagnosed with cancer 20 years ago and while filming the documentary his wife Jules was also diagnosed. Its not as depressing as it sounds, in fact although it was sad it was very uplifting watching it.
If you didnt see it find it on catch up.

We watched a programme Thursday evening, ITV 8.30 to 10.00, about a group of male celebrities recreating the famous striptease from The full Monty ; very watchable!!!!

Serious side though, it was to raise awareness of testicular and prostate cancer..................

Caught the last 20 mins of that Glen - hilarious!

Thank goodness Bethany's finally seen sense about the creep Nathan, I was getting a bit frightened for her - of course we all know that Corrie is real life :D

Tried to watch Fearless last night but gave up half way through ..... it was "too hard" on a hot night, will catch up when my brains less addled with the heat.
Finding the Loch's a bit slow.

Took your good advice Glen :D and also put down my laptop when I caught up with the second half of last week's and last night's latest episode.
Deffo a prog you need to watch as well as listen to, finding it a bit far fetched and still seeing shades of Line of Duty. Wondering if it's just a coincidence that John Bishop's character and the main "baddy" witness are both photographers 8) .......
Also finding it distracting that the murdered girl's parents are always accompanied by the pervie police sergeant from Corrie.......


Keith
someone was telling me about Mike and Julie last week but couldn't remember what it was called - thanks for that, I'll be sure to watch it on catch up.

Hi Bee,
Re the photography coincidence; I hadn't caught onto that :roll: Yes, the "Corrie" character throws me from time to time, makes me wonder if I am watching that soap...!!1

Just watched last week's (i.e. the 20th June) Broken - the one about Roz.

Dear me this is turning into an endurance test as, other than the Cop episode, they've all been very, very long hours! Only 2 to go so will probably stick with it but Jeez it needs a bit of something. I know the subject matter is gloomy (at best) but it drains the viewer!

Up to date on The Loch and really enjoying that one though. Haven't seen this week's Fearless yet.
