    The thing she does with her legs made me most unsettled when I saw it back in the day.

    Such a shame the Dame Meryl verison turned out to be such a disastah.

    SHIT! I never saw this back in the day and always wanted to and didn't notice it was being repeated. BUGGER!

    First episode isn't up on iPlayer either, which worries me that they won't bother.

    BUM BUM BUM!

    "MARY FISHER. You thought that love could create a HEAVEN ON EARTH, but love can only create a HELL. I shall teach you that lesson."

    I can't wait until she LEZZES OFF with MIRIAM MARGOLYES and LIZ SMITH starts causing HAVOC :disco:

    Julie T as RUTH as NURSE LILY LATIMER reminds me of SOMEONE I USED TO KNOW

    (Ja)Nina Ramirez's show about GOTHIC ARCHITECTURE was a little SLOW but she was looking suitably GOTHIC and her EMBONPOINT was as ON POINT as EVER :disco:

    Now this show about IT WAS ALRIGHT IN THE 1970S on Channel 4 may SOUND like another DREARY POINT-AND-LAUGH-A-THON but in fact was quite REVEALING in REMINDING ONE of the PREVAILING CULTURAL NORMS at the time when JUXTAPOSED as a BACKGROUND to the recent HIGH-PROFILE SEX ABUSE COURT CASES

    Ooh GET ME

    The rape and incest jokes were quite something. I look forward to the racism next week.

    I only caught the end but that one with Leslie Phillips' god-daughter literally begging him to fuck her was quite mind boggling.

    I say this, despite spending the evening making crude and occasionally graphic tags about child abuse.

    Lovely lovely show about BARBARA KNOX on the ITV last night

    You'd think she'd NEVER EVEN SEEN 'The Making Of Acorn Antiques' :D

    some fabulous history related stuff coming up with the 'taking liberties' season this month including a programme on magna carta with david starkey and a three part series on the history of women's rights from amanda vickery.

    also later this month to celebrate the six part adaptation of 'wolf hall' the bbc are also doing a new tudor season including hidden killers in the tudor home with susanna lipscomb and a recreation of the christening of edward iv from hampton court hosted by lucy worsley and david starkey. all sounds utterly ludicrous yet equally fabulous *.*

    'hidden killers of the tudor home' was wonderful last night. such an insight into how people lived, sounds thoroughly depressing. eating PURE SUGAR made to look like bacon, the deaths from tooth dosease and all those abbesses they couldn't treat, chimneys made out of TIMBER and people doing their washing in the stream and FALLING OVER and drowining in shallow water. no life is it.

    I have THAT on record. Dangers of the Victorian/ Edwardian Home were both amazing.

    DOCTOR DAVID STARKEY'S magna carta was rather good last night

    If only the old queen would stick to history and keep his BEAK out of CURRENT AFFAIRS

    Before that I caught a glimpse of that show with the LOVELY MRS COREN MITCHELL

    Everyone on it looked like they hadn't been exposed to SUNLIGHT in the last TWENTY YEARS :o

    Watching the bit about syphilis while eating pizza was not my best move

    i found the magna carta documentary very disappointing for a one hour documentary i found it very brief and sweeping. melvyn bragg's four part opus on r4 was comparatively much better...

    tbqf i love everything to be deep and detailed and running to about 8 PART ROYALES. the best thing i've seen in the past year was the 16 hour long ken burn's documentary on the roosevelt family. each episode was two hours long and amazing. you got a real psychological insight into teddy, fdr and eleanor's psyches and interactions and it was most fascinating. i became very attached to eleanor :(

    I'm catching up with NEIL BRAND'S SOUND OF SONG which is rather good mostly thanks to the ENTHUSIASM of the host (see also SOUND OF CINEMA)

    The first episode was very HISTORICAL (hello WAX CYLINDERS) and possibly not so interesting unless like me you are 115 years old and can remember all the old MUSIC HALL songs

    The PARLOUR wanted PAPERING
    And PA said it was WASTE
    To call a paper hanger in
    And so he made some PASTE

    But I digress, and apparently part 3 tonight reveals the MYSTERY behind Cher's ROBO VOICE on 'Believe'

    my favpurite documentary maker adam curtis (you may remember 'all looked over by machines with love and grace, 'the power of nightmares' and 'the century of the self) has just put up his latest film on iplayer, it's a little unconventional and runs to over 2 hours. i'll leave the bio for it explain:

    watch here :: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p02gyz6b/adam-curtis-bitter-lake

    Halfway through it. Love the unsettling soundtrack - sounds like a distorted BBC Radiophonic sound effect album.

    I love how someone called Doreen was in charge of playlisting at Radio 1 in the 70s.

    Anyone watch this Commons lark, then? I find myself quite liking Sarah Champion and overwhelmed by the sense of general ineptitude that I would almost certainly display in that environment.

    looking forward to thursday, the EVERSO LOVELY michael wood is back with 'shakespeare's mother: the secret life of a tudor woman'. quite a relief to get away from the tudor court and monarchy and delve into everyday life *.*
