Is that the last edition before the MU strike?

And in May 1980, Joy Division's Ian Curtis died.

Early/mid summer of this year was a gloomy time for listeners to John Peel's Radio 1 show, which championed both JD and the Ruts. :(

Legally? No. However, you can see the Scum/Daily Heil headlines already and the BBC already has major issues ahead with the new government - so it would be unwise for it to create more bad...

I *LOVE* Orphan Black and tried Tweeting BBC Three about how they should be airing now. All I got in response was 'noted' :confused:

I suspect part of the problem with the delay is the ongoing...

Kate wrote 'The Man With The Child In His Eyes' at 13 and recorded it at 16. She may not have been a 'child star' in the traditional sense of the term, but her musical career did begin when she was a...

You may think it was 'poor' but it clearly isn't tuneless. What 'Breathing' is, however, is challenging, political and experimental. Which may not be to everyone's tastes, granted - and Kate had...

The success of 'The Groove', like 'Jazz Carnival', reflects the growth of the jazz-funk scene in the UK at the time, and is also proof of how black music never got sidelined in the British charts in...

I agree about the gap widening - but I'd predict that'll be more to do with S&N dropping than Home Fires increasing. It had the perfect opportunity to do that this week - up against a cult series...

That wasn't a very convincing win

Home Fires isn't the big hit ITV need. It was obviously intended to target the CTM audience and they haven't taken the bait.

BBC Worldwide doesn't have the rights to the new Poldark. They're held - ironically - by ITV's international distribution arm, which struck a deal with producer Mammoth Screen.

This is a total non-story and the source posted at the top of this thread should give that away: the Daily Heil, and their usual brand of sloppy 'journalism'.

The comment was an opinion (not a fact)...

As plenty of FMs in the Safe House thread are posting, the end of the episode/series was an incomprehensible fudge. It rather looked as if someone had decided at the last minute that it might be...

I wondered the same thing. Which wouldn't be TTSS and much more an homage to The Manchurian Candidate.

I am really liking this - especially Paul Ritter and Judy Parfitt's exchanges. Priceless!
