1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I am quite enjoying these - i think he has dug a bit, but as always with many interviews, lines will be drawn by the interviewee themselves, the agents and publicists.....i am sure questions and topics are agreed in advanced - it might be interesting to see what was edited out.

    A recommendation for The English, did the six episodes in two sittings. I really enjoyed it, beautifully filmed too.

    We’re watching it linearly. I’m sure I would miss some of the detail if I binged. But it is quite good.

    Thoroughly enjoying Masterchef the Professionals again this year, with some serious talent. I do miss Monica Galetti though and her steely, no-nonsense presence...
  9. We're 2 episodes in, really enjoying it, would binge watch it if we had time.

    Cheers BB

    On Mother-in-law's recommendation watched 'The Swimmers' on Netflix;
    a really good look from another perspective about the trials of fleeing conflict
    and gaining acceptance into a safe country, factually based and an excellent watch.

    The 3rd series of His Dark Materials is on iPlayer now. We have just watched 8 episodes over 2 nights which is the most TV I've watched for months. It's excellent, don't be put off by the "young adult" tag.

    We watched the entire series of these last week, bloody brilliant apart from the stupid name of the guy, but really enjoyed all of them.

    I listened this week to Rob Delaney's reading of his book A Heart that Works on bbc sounds/radio 4. It concerns the illness and death of his young child. Of course, it's a tough listen but not without humour.
    One of the major points is the commitment of junior and senior NHS staff to trying to improve and save his son's life at no financial cost to the family.
    Rob is of course, no fan of the Tories.
