Just watched a Film with Richard Gere in it, I swooned over him in 'An Officer and a Gentleman', fast forward a couple of Decades and watched this Film called'Shall we Dance' he was like a Wooden Puppet, and so oldddd looking I know we all age, but wish you had not made that Film, Richard.  I can no longer keep the memory of him hoisting Debra Winger up into his Arms, ah life is cruel!heartbreak

Has anyone else been watching 'Tom's Boat' this mad young Inventor and his 6 year old Son, made some amazing Inventions for their Boat, it was a four parter and finished last night. Brilliant. Also worth a mention 'Shed of the Year' the Man who won, had an Allotment on the top of his.

Second week of the 'Bake Off', Biscuit Week,. has awakened my interest in Florentines, tried to make them years ago and it was a bit of a disaster. Some , if not all , the Creations, were amazing. They must be exceptional Cooks in the first place, to be able to cook with strange Ovens, time limits, and Cameras all over the place.

A friend once suggested to me that I should try going on Bake Off......frankly, it would be my worst nightmare.  I do love to bake, but doing it under pressure, in competition with others and with people watching - I just couldn't cope with all that stress.  Baking for me is a labour of love and I wouldn't love that.  I do admire them all.....young Martha is so calm and takes everything in her stride.  Have to say I wish that hairy ginger guy would go to a barber's!  His beard is quite off-putting.

learning to love veg…..except celery :-O

I agree, Sue, something repellent about his facial Hair, and the other fellow, with Hair all over the place too. Still, not enough to stop me watching, although the antics of Sue and Mel, are a bit  juvenile at times.

Did anyone see Art of China and Wild China on BBC 4 last evening?  Such excellent programmes.  I like the presenter of Art of China, Andrew Graham-Dixon - he did an excellent short series with Giorgio Locatelli in Sicily, one would introduce the art of the area and the other would cook wild food.

I'll try that again!

I saw 'Art of China' TA, and intend to watch, 'Wild China', on Playback, I love anything to do with Art, the Programme was so Informative, and the Presenter, forget his name, made it all so interesting.

watched 'Richard the Third' just now, absolutely amazing how Science can unlock the Secrets of the past. Now I think a Programme that finds evidence that Richard was not the murdering Villian, as made out by Shakespeare, after all, Shakespeare wanted to keep his Head on his Shoulders. Richard had nothing to gain by  killing his Nephews, where as Henry the V11 had every reason to do so.

I tried to watch the RIII programme but kept getting interrupted by various things so it'll have to be the iplayer for that one. It did look interesting from what I managed to see of the first half.

What really freaked me out, was that they were able to find a Body double within a few Miles, who actually re-enacted Bosworth Field, who had never ridden a Horse before, but looked as if he had been doing it for Years, do watch it.

I've started watching the RIII programme again - on 4od not iplayer! For some reason I assumed since it was an interesting programme it must have been on the BBC!
