I tuned into this whilst stirring my risotto last night (just setting the scene). Cannot believe they made a half hour programme about this. And as for BBC news reader Sophie Raworth conducting this...

Celebrities who for no particular reason make you want to gouge your own eyes out wit

Not your Jordans or your Jeremy Kyles. More the inexplicable hatred you develop for pretty inoffensive slebs.

I feel this way about Kris Marshall. Even typing his name makes me grimace a bit. Oh and...

Nonsense. Of course she can have an opinion. All the respect in the world to Steve but him being a soldier in Northern Ireland does not exclude an Caoimhe from having her own opinion.

I tried to watch this programme but I couldn’t not bear the director/narrator, not sure of his name and had to switch off after half an hour. Why oh why do all documentaries these day need to give...

It’s this kind of attitude that I find really baffling. Implying that American history is not as important as European history. In many ways the Gold Rush (and many aspects of American history) is as...

The jazzy intro music put me on my guard but when I heard the lovely Mark Strong’s voice doing the narration I relaxed. It was pretty similar to the British version, I suppose because it was on the...

Does everyone know that ceefax page 888 (ceefax, yes, how retro) puts subtitles on most programmes for you.

I have to say I’m pretty astonished that more people don’t think that reform is needed in the way rape cases are handled. Only 5% (give or take a point of percent or two) of rape cases result in a...

Actually, it is true, that’s why I wrote it in the first place. Do you see?

So it is with much grief and distress that I must allow you to deny me any credibility.

Done jury service a couple of times actually.

The fact of the matter is that the legal system is weighted against the victim in rape cases. The only rape related cases that get any coverage are...

People like you give me the chills. You probably don't even believe that rape is a real crime.

My point was really referring to re-runs. Sgt Bilko is not a commonly repeated sitcom on American television compared to shows from roughly the same era such as ‘I Love Lucy’ or ‘The Honeymooners’...

He reminds me completely of Harry Enfield type character.

Actually it's Toby I'm thinking of as Harry Enfield. Was Greg the one with the freakishly small head?
