No smilies, no avatars, no flashing gifs. Just discuss the issues of the day, from last night's telly via football to science or philosophy.

True, I love Beeb 4. In fact I'm thinking of buying a telly and a recorder so I can save all the special BBC4 progs like the foreign subtitled cop shows from Denmark and La Belle France.

I have very much just enjoyed a BBC4 programme about the history of horticulture. I am a dull woman.

No you're not Ottoline! BBC4 makes everything interesting. Only way we can get it where I live is to give money that cunt Murdoch - we can't get Freeview here. Oh the irony that it's costing twice as much for a ground floor subscription to Sky as it costs for the BBC licence.

The programme on maps was fascinating. Anyone else watch it?

I'm enjoying the variety stuff (am watching the Two Ton Tessie thing at the moment) and have recorded the Maria Callas doc. The Friday night music programmes are excellent.

The Callas documentary was excellent. Very soft pictures in these days of HD, mind you, but lovely for all that.

MysteryDate - 06 Mar 2011 11:20:52 (#8 of 5738)

Sounds ace, Mazy. I look forward to watching it later today.

I rather liked the prog on containerisation last night. Roger McGough narrating.

The variety thing was wonderful - a handful of 'usual suspects' (albeit ones with good yarns), but loads of unknown old pros with some cracking stories.

Good point Grace. I was glued to the one about motorways.

Have just watched it, Mazy. Fabulous stuff.

Oh good, glad you liked it. I have it on the Humax for future reference, her voice does something very amazing to me.

MysteryDate - 09 Mar 2011 22:07:19 (#16 of 5738)

Yes, she's quite incredible.

Universal2 - 10 Mar 2011 15:18:55 (#17 of 5738)

8.00pm tonight - Maps: Power, Plunder and Possession, the last installment of Mapping the World.

I plan to watch it as the previous installment was excellent.

I've watched the programmes on maps and on books. They are good. I cannot remember where these particular series have been made, but I am intrigued and pleased when I see how independent companies or certain TV regions make such series and then get them on to the national network and, presumably, register some overseas sales.

Universal2 - 10 Mar 2011 21:04:09 (#19 of 5738)

The map programme was fascinating, but I think he was a bit optimistic about map makers becoming peacemakers.

MysteryDate - 10 Mar 2011 21:59:29 (#20 of 5738)

Palladium prog v good. Second part coming up now.
