Just watching Crawley v Leeds on BT Sport,my good lady shouts from the garden that I have to let her know when Mark Wright comes on from the Crawley bench.I said he retired years ago !
Apparently the Mark Wright who is in TOWIE,something I know nothing about..Learn something irrelevant every day 😁

The Serpent on BBC. Excellent drama from the beeb, shown in 8 parts. Based upon the story of Charles Sobhraj, a serial killer who committed a number of terrible crimes mainly against backpackers in East Asia and South-East Asian starting in the 1970s. The jumping around the timeline is irritating and it took to episode 3 before I was content that we had made the right choice. Glad we kept going.

I "binged" this last weekend and thought it quite good but with a couple of flaws. The major one, as you say was the continual yoyoing of the timeline, at times I almost .expected the Tardis to put in an appearance. The use of historic footage was a nice touch with on tha aviation front a Pan Am jumbo and even a Lockheed Constellation turning up, so why then go and use front and rear on shots of 21st Century, wide bodied twin turbo fan jets ? 7.5 torsos out of 10 thai sticks.

Rugby Special- Ireland v Springboks, the anti-apartheid protests of multiple pitch invasions and drawing pins scattered on the pitch was great fun to watch as a nipper, but of course the politics went right over my head ! Gordon Brown was one of the protest organisers along with Peter Hain.

I can vaguely remember the Springboks at the County Ground on that tour.Not that I watched or was indeed interested but I do remember loads of police & demonstrators in the area & asking my dad what was going on as we drove down Cowick St.

There was a great documentary on recently on BT Sport which covered that - Stop The Tour. Peter Hain's story is a very interesting one and of course you had both sides of the politics/sport debate. Easy for me to say, born years later, that the MCC were spineless regarding the Basil D'Oliveira non selection but...they were spineless.
