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
I loved Billy Gilbert as Professor Theodore von Schwarzenhoffen, M.D., A.D., D.D.S., F.L.D., F-F-F-and-F. He played many other roles in Laurel & Hardy films with his great exaggerated facial expressions which would have been honed in the silent era..

Indeed, Hal Roach studios had probably a handful of actors that appeared in many films, They use to churn out flims by the week. I know people don't like old b/w films but people like Laurel & Hardy are a must to watch

I binge watched Gentleman Jack starring the excellent Suranne Jones..I am usually not that interested in period drama from the 1800s,but this one I found quite compelling.
Set in 1832 around Halifax,The principle character(Jones) is a hard nosed businesswoman & land owner who creates a bit of a scandal by falling in love with someone of the same sex.

I recorded The Radical Story of Patty Hearst a few months back on PBS America(Sky 174) & have just got around to watching all of the(6x 1hour episodes)
A excellent documentary & one to lookout for when it’s rerun again.
I remembered bits of the story the kidnapping,subsequent joining the SLA & the bank raid she was involved in,but not the rest of her tale.

Last week up in the Lakes we went to the Laurel & Hardy Museum in Ulverston, where they have a little cinema showing their films on rotation. We watched one where they're chimney sweeps at a scientist's house - good slapstick fun.

"Perry Mason" (c 1963), CBS Justice (Freeview 39), is worth a look. Raymond Burr was the star, but other familiar faces turn up. Recently Arthur Hunnicutt, a familiar old-timer in westerns. Also Robert Wilke - if you can't place him, he was the one in "The Magnificent Seven" who badgered James Coburn into a gun/knife duel.

The Day Mountbatten Died on iplayer

Hard to believe it’s nearly 40 years ago(27/08/1979)
I can recall the first sketchy news reports of his death & then the news of the 18 soldiers killed at Warrenpoint.

Various eyewitnesses recount that terrible day.

Just finished the last episode of Knightfall Season two. All about the demise of the Templars .Absolutely brilliant for those who like a bit of action mixed with a bit of intrigue .Season One is on Netflix now with Two soon to follow.Very satisfying ending too.

Mortimer and Whitehouse : Gone Fishing. There's some great banter between these two genuinely funny chaps that made this series a good watch even though I have no interest in the subject of fishing.

I would have thought that subject is the very stuff of nightmares to you Billy !
