  3. Last Word

    Radio 4 does love to keep us guessing.
  4. Ideas and Possibilities for 2019

    I don't know whether you want to move these across. He probably deserves his own thread.
  5. Ideas and Possibilities for 2019

    I think he is not in immediate danger and he has waited for the outcome to share this.

  7. What Kind Of Person Deadpools?

    Even Jane Austen allowed her characters a little bit of Deadpooling. This is from Chapter 3 of Mansfield Park Tom listened with some shame and some sorrow; but escaping as quickly as possible, could soon with cheerful selfishness reflect, firstly, that he had not been half so much in debt as some of his friends; secondly, that his father had made a most tiresome piece of work of it; and, thirdly, that the future incumbent, whoever he might be, would, in all probability, die very soon. On Mr. Norris’s death the presentation became the right of a Dr. Grant, who came consequently to reside at Mansfield; and on proving to be a hearty man of forty-five, seemed likely to disappoint Mr. Bertram’s calculations. But “no, he was a short-necked, apoplectic sort of fellow, and, plied well with good things, would soon pop off.”

    Probably demanding that Ruth Madoc gets her own chat show and the public flogging of Matt Lucas.

    This doesn't look too good but Theresa May might be draining the life force from her.

    BBC do costume drama really well. Especially Jane Austen, Bronte's etc but also things like The Onedin Line, Duchess of Duke Street, Poldark, Edward and Mrs Simpson. My mum refused to watch soaps but woebetide anyone who disturbed her during Poldark.

    There were plenty of British sit coms that probably didn't make it across to you. If you have ever encountered Come Back, Mrs Noah (featuring Mollie Sugden) then you would understand why. We got Golden Girls, Cheers, Frasier, Taxi, Soap, Different Strokes, the Cosby Show, Fresh Prince, Benson as well as the early ones like Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Happy Days There were a few others that were used a fillers for Daytime telly I remember one with Eddie Murphy as a genie. I didn't watch all these but I was aware of them. Did you get very local things like In Loving Memory and Last of the Summer Wine? Not sure how well they would translate.
  14. DL Status Updates: Statements, Obsevations & Verbal Tennis

    Currently on the Eurostar to Brussels for my third meeting in the Belgian capital since the beginning of the year. Gave me a nice opportunity to finish the verification for Scavenger Hunt. Next task will be to cross reference the DDP picks with my 1000 name long list to pick out those who have still not been selected.
  15. Radio 4

    Yesterday morning reporting form Paris I did think that Nick Robinson's voice sounded a bit raspy. Not as bad as when he first started on the Today programme but just a little rougher than usual.
