Re: What are you watching?

The BBC documentary SAILOR, which I remember watching as a kid back in 1976. It's great. No background music, no narration, no Brian Cox or Neil Oliver gurning at me. Just point the camera and observe.

Re: What are you watching?

Spent the afternoon re-watching some of the movies I loved as a kid. The Valley of Gwangi (1969). Warlords of Atlantis (1978). The Mysterious Island (1961).

Yesterday I watched Andy Murray fall to bits in the final set, and then I curled up on the sofa and watched STATE OF PLAY, the BBC version, which was damned good.

Re: george square accident

Just heard a rumour that four members of one family and a pregnant woman were killed. Grim.

Re: Baxter House, Lowther Terrace

:(

I hate to see a good building like this being wasted when the city centre is being filled up with wretched glass boxes.

CHUMS 'O THE CLYDE

I've been researching Boys' Story Papers as inspiration for something I'm writing at the moment, and while I usually think of them as having a very English sensibility - all boarding school honour codes and Captains of the First Eleven - I stumbled across this the other day. http://www.friardale.co....
