Just watched Storyville; My nazi legacy on BBC4.

"Three men travel together across Europe. For two of them the journey involves a confrontation with the acts of their fathers, who were both senior Nazi officers. For the third, the eminent human rights lawyer and author Philippe Sands, it means visiting the place where much of his own Jewish family was destroyed by the fathers of the two men he has come to know. An emotional, psychological exploration of three men wrestling with their past, the present of Europe, and conflicting versions of the truth."

Powerful stuff and well worth a watch. Even more significant as two weeks ago I was in Auschwitz.

New Tricks, then New Tricks then more New Tricks zzzzzzzzzz. SWMBO likes them and there are a few that she hasn't yet taped.
But I'll be upstairs taping Robbie Shepard on Radio Scotland as I've always done for the last umpteen years.

"Better Call Saul" which I thought would be a slightly light-hearted spin off from Breaking Bad. I couldn't have been more wrong. It is a belter all on it's own.

Also watched the first episode of "Flowers" which is well worth the effort.

Agree with you about the cast, but I would strongly recommend watching the first one (or 2 as the first 2 went out on the same night) again for a recap and watching the next one because it really gets going and a lot funnier. There are only 6 of them after all, and the actor who played "Toast"'s worst nightmare is toe-curlingly wrong.

I was watching Rillington Place last night.
Believe it was filmed in BBC Scotland's Dumbarton Studios and also in Glasgow.

Well, since dear auld Peter Sallis passed away a couple of days ago, I've been watching my "Last of the Summer Wine" DVDs. Currently just starting series 7 from 1982/83.

I've always been a big fan of "Summer Wine", ever since I was a kid. It was one of the few TV programmes I liked that my mum didn't object to - she didn't like me watching "Doctor Who" because she thought it was to scary for me (which it was, a little bit. Occasionally).

But the misadventures of Compo, Foggy, and Clegg? The three auld lads pratting about, getting into scrapes, and generally behaving like overgrown weans? That, ladies an' germs, is yer actual Comedy Gold.

Just take a moment and think about "Summer Wine". 31 series, over 27 years, a total of 295 episodes, all written by one man - Roy Clarke, and Peter Sallis was in every - single - one of them.

So then, it's a very heartfelt and respectful RIP to Peter Sallis and to his alter ego - Norman Clegg.
Cheerio, Norm, and when you see Compo, and Foggy, and all the rest of the gang, you be sure and tell them, we still love them, and we still miss them.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I think I have something in my eye... :(
Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

Watched the first episode of "Strike - The Cuckoo's Calling" (adapted from the novel by Robert Galbraith AKA J.K. Rowling) last night.

Pretty good, liked it a lot. But if I have one very minor criticism, it's that Tom Burke (playing Cormoran Strike) isn't as bulky and disheveled looking as the character is described in the books.

Part two is on tonight. :)
