Damn - this would have been the perfect time for Mr Alive and I to unveil a half-finished joke about "Lidl-class people"... but alas, my recollection is that, despite several attempts, it never turned into anything amusing.... :rip:

I am at ease with my shopping habits, although my usual haunt is the Watford branch. I am more than happy to discuss the merits of Costco with anyone willing to listen. By the way, my theory on why Brucie, with all his millions, shops at Costco is by being thrifty, he stays rich! Oh ... and by presenting Earl Gloomy's favourite dancing show on the beeb of course!

DWB :rip:

Moria Staurt ???
Who the bloody hell is that ??

Does she look like a balrog then ?
Or a dwarf ?

P'haps you mean Moira Stuart... ?

:lol:

PS How old is she ? Too early for bets on her popping her clogs I guess !

Yeah!.... He's still alive :)
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

Funny you should that, i have thought the same for some time now. Its too thick and straw like to me real. I think i prfered it when she had the huge frizzy afro-type boufent like in the days when she presented the BBC's 6 and 9 o'clock news in the late 1980's and early 1990's.

Or are you trying to say shes gone bald?????

Did anyone see the supposed Louis Theroux prog featuring Brucie on Tues night? He was looking as sprightly as ever, indulging in a bit of tap-dancing whilst waiting for the lift and packing in a round of floodlit golf in Hong Kong or wherever they were. What a tall skinny chap he is - looking no unhealthier than in the clips they showed from the '60s, dancing with Roy Castle (bet he never thought he'd depart before Bruce). It was a very gentle show all round, none of the trademark Louis-delving into dark pasts. Just nice clips from his career and following him and his lovely wife around on holiday. It's good to see stuff like this before they die - admittedly it would be hard to do a fly-on-the-wall type show when they're dead, but YKWIM...

I say "supposed Louis Theroux" show has it was filmed by his usual production crew, and Theroux was even billed in the synopsis, but there was no sign of him. Not sure what happened here, and I did miss the first few minutes and thus any possible explanation - but maybe Louis is a leftfield suggestion for next year? This was filmed in 2003, so why they thought he was in it I don't know. Very strange. I don't think we've seen him since he was floating round in the background when the Hamiltions got arrested for rape.

I get you on that. Theroux was also hanging around the strings in BBC2's recent dimming stars of yesteryear show, The Entertainers. He used totally unknown people to do the interviews, who you rarely saw, and shot the whole thing on mini DV. He also did something else where I noticed his name on the credits, but I can't remember what that was.

What was this Brucie thing called? Didn't see it in the paper.

I am writing a small history of the Transport Golfing Society which goes back to 1932. At the annual dinner we have had many famous names as entertainers. In the 1958 programme Bruce Forsythge and Anne Romain are featured. Was this a double act, and who was Anne?

Okay, so who were the famous names? I suspect Anne was the one in the dress but maybe not!

That's put you out of your suspense for the last 47 years.
