The Sweeney - Series 1 Episode 4

Bought the DVDs as ITV insist on altering the format to fill a 16:9 screen which crops a fair bit off the old 4:3 filming and ruins it in my opinion

Vivacious Lady (1938) - Ginger Rogers & James Stewart

Been after this for a while, found a French DVD with the original English soundtrack

The BBC showed it last year but I doubt if anybody at the Beeb watched it before it aired, I don't think they will show it again!

I'm finally getting round to watching some of my DVDs now!  It's great working from home, as long as the work gets done I can come and go when I please!  

Watching the first episode of "Hazell" - Hazell Plays Solomon, Nicholas Ball is quite a looker!

Always been a big fan of. "Film Noir" loads on YouTube, French films ( only my opinion) are the best.

I applaud the subject, but, as a woman's screams fill the cold night air, that awful text to speech robot voice needs to be shot dead by a mysterious gunman in a dark and sinister alley... and in black and white of course ;-)

It's one of my favourite progs too, though sometimes I wish they'd cut the sob stories and the 'fill' scenes and show more of the restoration processes. They quite often say they're going to do something, then in the next shot, it's been done with no explanation of how...for instance, one of the experts was repairing a grandfather clock and mentioned that the dial should be resilvered using a powdered silvering compound (I've only ever seen liquid silvering solutions). They showed the start of the process, then cut to the finished thing, which wasn't very informative. Still a great show, though.

I stopped watching the newer series because of the move away from showing how and increasing the amount of fluffy fill - another series I am fond of "Car SOS" has done the same, latest series shows less of the cars being repaired and more of the presenters swanning around
