    Red Bull Soap Box Challenge was a laugh and enjoyed Billy Connelly’s final tour program. Other than the few old classic films on (again), nothing else comes to mind!

    Every year I say it's been the worst year so far. But this year possibly re sets the bar even lower than my expectations. Only highlight so far.... Carry on up the Khyber.

    Been watching a fair bit of RedBull TV at the moment - really enjoyed the range of things there... tend to have it on most days, and certainly when I'm at uni I'll have it on in the background.

    Agree. Fortunately I had recorded some films during the year.

    Despite living in Scotland I didn't see it in, nor did I watch Ali Bain & Phil Cunningham (again) :doh:.

    Typical of our tv viewing

    Helen "aww no do you think her son did it"
    Me "huh what eh erm i dunno i was looking at the wrought iron fence in the background its smart that ain't it"

    Because ads are so much louder than the movies we mostly don't watch it with the sound muted making them two very expensive 55" ............ lamps :wtf:

    You need a TV licence to watch ANY live programs on ANY channel, plus ANYTHING on the IPlayer. The IPlayer thing came around 18 months ago I think to fill a ‘loophole’ in the licensing racket. It’s a disgrace. They’re (BBC) spending £86m rebuilding the Eastenders set, over budget by £27m and 5 years behind schedule. They’re also moaning they will not be able to foot the bill for free licences for the over 70’s when the government stops doing so next year. To think that someone could potentially go to prison for not buying a TV licence, even if they never watch the BBC is absurd. They should be made to encrypt their service, as other broadcasters have, and let those who want it pay for it.

    Whole heartedly agree Towpack. It is a disgrace..... Love or hate 'em' We should be a bit more like the French.. If there is something we disagree with, We should rally together, Riot, and burn every Village.. Just a thought!:thumbup:
