Found a trailer for Get Shorty.
I've just binge watched all of them - very enlightening..Currently watching the Spotlight series on BBC NI about the troubles. Very good with lots of unseen footage from documentaries filmed for the US market - I think. One clip shows Saint Martin loading a bomb into the back of a car. Some good revelations about Paisley as well.
Watching The Royal (about a local hospital in the 1960s in Yorkshire). Was cool to it at first but it has developed nicely. Good mix of humor and tragedy. Good acting and character development. No heavy handed social engineering but reasonable treatment of social issues of that period. Good 60's music score.
If you two like those two shows, try a series called "Ripper Street". Not made anymore finished a couple of years ago.Have you ever watched a UK TV show called Endeavour?
Watched most of it. Turned a bit too violent for my tastes.If you two like those two shows, try a series called "Ripper Street". Not made anymore finished a couple of years ago.
But essentially takes place around 10 years after the "Ripper" murders in Whitechapel.
Understood. It is merely a personal thing--I have seen enough for real such that I avoid it when I have the choice.Fair enough , trouble is though that area of London down into the East End and the areas around the docks were extremely violent. The violence in the series, was exaggerated but not far off it.
Those benefits don't claim themselves!Had the misfortune of being in the room while the missus watched The Highland Midwife, a reality series about, strangely enough, midwives operating around the Scottish Highlands.
By God, they must feed them well in that part of the world - most of the pregnant lasses were big units with huge thighs and the majority of their husbands/partners were even bigger.
Clearly, tattoo parlours are doing a roaring trade up that way too!
Add in the sound of multiple repeats of childbirth screaming and you get the idea.
Not recommended for those with a delicate constitution!
Agreed. Excellent program.VVG 1 1/2 hrs programme for grown-ups on BBC4 by Andrew Graham-Dixon about the Dutch forger Han Van Meegeren.
Basically during the war Van M painted a number of fake Vermeers and foisted on them to the Dutch art market and crowned his achievement by selling one to Goering, all for huge amounts of money. In 1945 he was therefore done for collaboration but got off that by claiming, and proving, that he was the painter. A G-D picked his story apart and showed that there was a far longer history of fakery. A fascinating detective story with a neat twist at the end. Showed how people, even 'experts', will believe what hey want to believe.
Two ironies - one that the faces in most of the fakes were bland and crude and nothing like Vermeer's later work - and the Nazi passion for realistic art extended to religious pictures where, in fact, all the participants were Jews (although with Aryan faces)..
