Have I Got A Bit More News For You ... has me in stitches every week.
Last week they had Alistair Campbell as the presenter... Ian Hislop tore him to shreds - he came close to losing his cool a couple of times ;)

Wetn to the library today to get some new books and had a look at the video section and I found Fortunes of War which I took out. No idea what it's like but will be watching it later after I have ripped it (only allowed to keep videos for 2 days).

Although it's not a story, I've just bought QI, and it's just so different watching without the beeps and ads. Dstv gets about 20mins per episode while the DVD has 30 mins!

For stories,
Morse
Lewis
Foyles war

Have been trawling nzb for British mini-series and have found a few gems but I'm sure there are more ?


Inside Men
The Politicians Wife
Heat of the Sun
Amnesia
Unforgiven
Painted Lady
Blackpool
Crow Road
House of Cards Trilogy
Edge of Darkness
Harry's Game

Any recommendations ?

Downton Abbey, with Maggie Smith....- I have not lol'ed so much for a series in a long while. Good writing, with plenty of substance and loads of wit,sarcasm, and good acting.

So when you go to Mr. Video, Video Town etc you expect VHS tapes on the shelves? :D

VHS - Video Home System
VCD - Video CD
DVD - Digital Video Disc (Initially)

They all do video :D
