Lots of great old films & TV archive on Talking Pictures(Sky 328 Virgin 445 Freeview 81)
Always worth a check to see what's on this channel. Another one I've been looking at is True Entertainment on Freeview 61 (M*A*S*H, Randall and Hopkirk). Not any more, though, it seems - they've switched to Ch 48, and after a retune neither channel is there. :(

Catch 22, Seen the film ages ago so giving the series a crack, So far not bad, Have put it on series link. Only thing is the sound, I keep having to adjust the volume as it keeps going very quiet

Second series of Knightfall starting next Tuesday at 9 pm on the History channel. Knights Templar v the king of France.
Think the king won that one 1-0 .
If it’s as good as the first series something to look forward to.Plenty of action and intrigue.
Excellent , plenty of blood and guts and good storyline for and keeps up the pace from Series 1.

Get Some In (1975-77) a good comedy(for its time) based on RAF National Service starring Tony Selby & Robert Lindsey is starting a run on TPTV on July 1st...To my knowledge this is its first reshowing.
Started recording this and have now watched a few episodes.Good lighthearted stuff , easy to watch and you can get through an episode in 25 minutes cutting out the ads.

Been watching a few things that have been ok
Gentleman Jack - Slightly bizarre in the way its filmed where Surranne Jones talks to the camera but quite entertaining.
Year of the Rabbit - Quirky comedy following the exploits of a Victorian police detective.
Deadwood - Slowly making my way through this epic show, cant believe I didn't catch it first time around.
Years and years - Follows a family and country through the next 10 years of the writers imagination, some of the predictions of the tech could easily become reality like the hand phone implants and also theres a few uncanny similarities with todays politicians but at least the car will still be about

Although it's predictably hyperbolic (and understandably UScentric) I am enjoying the current rash of documentaries on the Apollo 11 moon landing.

I was only a teenager at the time but re-watching those events is still pretty humbling - and perhaps a reminder of the hopes and possibilities that were later jettisoned over the subsequent half century.:(

8 Days to the Moon and back on the iplayer is brilliant. It uses the original audio recordings of the mission with actors mouthing their words. Works brilliantly. Very immersive and you really feel part of it. Like you say, very humbling.

I think they have done a decent job with the series as it is a great novel but not one that seemed easy to adapt to screen coherently.

Yes,won 5-2 against Nairn.

I have been to Fort William many times but have yet to see a game at Claggan Park.

The TV programme has generated lots of interest & FWFC gained a extra 7,000 twitter followers in 24 hours.
When I was there last year, the taxi driver took me to the Fort William Shinty Club instead!

The wonderful Laurel & Hardy film The Music Box(1932) is on TPTV at 0745 tomorrow(Saturday)

I have not seen it in decades & have set the recorder.
As per usual on a weekend my body clock doesn't realise i don't have to work and woke up early so took your advice and settled down to watch this classic and was not disappointed, Trying to deliver the piano and the hassle it caused them was brilliant, Made in 1932 it was just wonderful and these two are a very rare breed of silent actors who made the transfer to talkies a success. A total classic Olds and like you not seen it in ages, Thanks for the heads up

Two of my grandchildren have been visiting from Devon for a couple of days , so we all sat down after a day out together to watch The Princess Bride on Netflix. Great film for all ages , easy going and nice theme music , always gets a ten from me.
