This week’s Good Telly!
I’ve not been watching much television since Christmas, there just hasn’t been anything on I’ve really felt the need to stay in and watch. Last night a programme came on that justified the license fee in one 50 minute shot. It was Planet Earth. You can watch some amazing sequences from that link, including the great white shark hunting a seal. Truely amazing televison.
Also this week is Michael Winterbottom’s The Road to Guantanamo (C4 Thursday 21:00) which shows a reconstruction of how the Tipton Three ended up in Cuba. I’m sure they have Mr Bush to thank for that.
And on this week’s Culture Show (BBC2 Thursday 19:00 – repeat 23:20) is an appearance by Alan Moore, the mysterious creator of Watchmen and V For Vendetta. He’s an amazing man and its quite weird to hear his brummie accent after you’ve read his works for so long.
Oh, and I wouldn’t like to advertise that nasty satelite channel which exclusively showed the Oscars last night to about 8 viewers but this real life advert for The Simpsons is very clever.
