    Because you can't get enough death. BBC Radio 4's obituary programme broadcast each Friday. Sometimes it's not always deaths that week, just to make it interesting. Apologies if friends outside the UK can't access it, but what they hey. This week featured the Right Reverend David Jenkins, Dame Margaret Anstee, Islam Karimov, and Richard Neville. Prince Buster didn't make it, will he be in next week?

    Seen Any Good Films Lately?

    Much to my surprise I actually got round to watching a film i'd taped (ok, digitally recorded or whatever) over xmas. Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa is a joy. It's quick fire humour delivers joke after prat fall after toe curling embarrassment after laugh out loud one liner. The plot is nonsense. But it enables a narrative thread to run throughout into which Coogan places a character whose behaviour makes you want to to embrace him one second and punch him the next. Joyously funny and guaranteed to lighten any post-truth dark day.

    Surtees is a definite but rest not announced. Rumours of a major celebrity having a choking fit.
