nice one! bed time viewing sorted!
Dolphins - Spy in the Pod
And the Culture Show special about Steve McQueen is excellent (not that one, that one)
" Bjork discusses her musical milestones with Matt Everitt."
I found the explosions program to be inexcusably gleeful. Yes it concentrated on how advances in explosives aided gigantic engineering projects, but it said next to fuck all about what bombs are really used for. Excellent fact though, the bloke who worked out the potential of atomic energy was hounded out of nazi germany. Unlucky, fritz.
so sick of music programs on BBC4. No I do not want to see a three hour documentary about Django fucking Rheinhart. You bastards.
Watch Les Revenants, not on Iplayer but me or P can ding you a copy.
Charlie Brooker's weekly whatsit is good.
The thing on Alfred the Great was good but I think the first ep isn't available anymore
there's a three hour documentary about Django the Man? Link please.
Charlie Brookers Weekly Wipe
I watched it with my OH who just sat unamused pointing out the arms companies getting free advertising by the BBC.....and hypothesised this programmed was commissioned to gee up the public for the centenary for WWI....just as that prick Dan Snow tried to wangle.
Links people please!
What is that? If it is something I'd like I'd like a copy.
Sugar Vs Fat
Why we're chubsters and other things.
It's a sort of French Twin Peaks zombie thing. Sort of zombie. More existentialism and smoking and tits. I think it's fucking great. Best thing I've seen in years. I don't watch much telly though.
Watch out for the PIED-DE-BICHE
Watched Sound City, a documentary made by David Grohl about the studio in LA where many rock albums were made in the 70's and 80's including by Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty and Nirvana. The sound was so good because of the custom built Neve mixer.
I'm no techie on those things but I found it very interesting.
Is 1hour 45 mins. Available til 10th February.
Great idea for a thread. The only thing we seem to watch on iplayer is bloody Octonauts! Some of the accents can be quite funny, tbf.
This was vaguely interesting, but despite the claims they made, I don't think it was particluarly groundbreaking.
What they demonstrated was that "extreme" diets are not very good for you, whether it's eating all fat and no carbohydrate or all carbohydrate and no fat.
Surprise, surprise - our bodies need appropriate amounts of both
The big thing they were showing was that the mix of fat and sugar in forms that we would not have evolved to regulate bypass our regulatory system. Thus not satiating us.
I like the camp sharks
You're right, they did mention that, but did they really need to go through all the business of spending a day trading shares on the stock market and cycling up Box Hill to do so?
Pain, Pus and Poison
The Search for Modern Medicines
Mysteries of a Lost World
2013-2014, Vultures, Beauty in the Beast
I fucking love Bjork, love, its utter love.
Uncle is good, it takes a couple of episodes to get into but it's good. Also House of Fools obviously.
