Good afternoon
The temperature dropped a lot in the night, it was clear and sunny earlier but cloudy now

I have booked a swim at the lido on Wednesday, I cannot swim before Tuesday as I had an eye treatment on Wednesday

Might go for a Rishi-subsidised lunch after, there are nice Vietnamese and other places near London Fields

For anyone in need of a visual and aural treat set your TVs to record West Riding at 6pm on the Talking Pics channel

Looks lovely Suffs. Can't find a talking pics channel on my TV though and think you have to subscribe to the linked site.

Ooops, forgot to say good afternoon all! :wave. Been busy doing not much this morning and chatting to DD on the phone. It was dull all morning but the sun's just appeared. Looks a bit blustery so will be good for a walk. Would be nice to go somewhere different today but can't think of places which won't be heaving with people (unless they've decided to go to Cyprus :lol:).

Be careful setting recordings to Talking Pictures

My Virgin V6 box failed to record Budgie as the default series link is “new episodes only” and although it was the first time it was shown on that channel, it wasn’t tagged. as new :(

If you haven't re-tuned your TV (or Freeview box) lately you might not get Talking Pictures - I think it's relatively new. I lost a channel I thought I should have, a few weeks ago, and needed to re-tune.

My Virgin Box does that with a few channels, noticeably BBC4, but so far has always picked up Talking Pictures.

My guilty TP secrets are:

The Adventures of Robin Hood (Richard Greene)
Ditto William Tell (Conrad Phillips)
Sir Francis Drake (Terence Morgan and the magnificent Jean Kent)
The Adventures of Sir Lancelot (William Russell)
The Last of the Mohicans. (Un PC and hilarious in equal measures)
Rumpole of the Bailey on Wednesday nights at 9.

Mostly I am a child of the fifties! :oops: :oops:

Ah! I've come across others like that. Annoying and confusing. Thanks.

Clearly PP! :lol:. I rarely scroll further than the main 4 or 5 channels, radio and CeeBeebies! It's quite a revelation to see what's there. I only have Virgin TV because it makes my broadband cheaper :evil:.

Of course it's just struck me that it could also ultimately result in the demise of the BBC arts output. If Sky Arts monopolises the cultural sector from September then there will be less reason for the BBC to provide arts programming - which is one of its raisons d'etre at the moment - and that in turn will then fuel the govt wish to abolish the BBC and the licence fee as we know it ... sorry, a bit convoluted, but maybe not such a good thing in the long run???

Or am I just an old cynic?

Would Sky open up Sky Arts to free to view out of the goodness of its heart and for the greater good??

Good Evening Campers. :wave: We have had a mixed day, sun, light rain, cloudy. But a nice day. All ironing has been done and put away. :thumbsup I think the BBC are quickly becoming unviable. People are paying for sky etc, why do they also have to pay for the BBC licence, The rubbish and repeats or should I say repeats and rubbish they are sending out they should be shut down. The money obviously goes to pay the fat cats' salaries and bonuses not the programmes they put out. So old Britain. bring on the new life of TV.

I wouldn't want to go through the current crisis without BBC News Channel or BBC Radio
Nobody will have any new programmes for a while, Netflix and Amazon have some bought in because they haven't been broadcast here so they look new, but they aren't really

Can't bear thie commercial channels, the adverts drive me nuts.
If there is anything I want to see it has to be recorded so I can avoid the ads.
