Friday was an interesting day. I went out for a meeting, had lunch with some old work colleagues, came back early afternoon and was in an absolutely great mood. I was feeling pretty good.
In some sort of "relaxed, can't be bothered to do anything, anyway it's Friday afternoon" mood I ended up sat on the sofa reliving childhood theme tunes. And that's where the clip above came in and it's been stuck in my bloomin' head ever since.

Also known as "Andrew's been getting a little silly with video editing software"...
The story is that about 12 years ago, someone who will remain nameless (cos I can't remember who it was) sent me of Channel 3 North East/Tyne Tees's news programme, North East Tonight.

In amongst all the talk of me archiving bits of Planet Bods, I completely forgot to mention the latest addition to my website family - The Good Columbo Guide - an episode guide for the mighty TV show Columbo.
Sorting out some work emails, I randomly hit Outlook’s “notes” section. I don’t really use the “Notes” section bar for keeping a few bits of regularly used information that… err… I usually don’t use. Things like links to Telewest’s cable monitoring services which probably stopped working in about 2007, an old live FTP password for the BBC’s website and details of how to get the secret, not very well hidden testcard on the BBC Red Button.
Yesterday I posted an article about voting that I wrote something like fifteen years ago, that I stumbled on whilst…
One cookery programme firmly with the recession in mind however the recent Economy Gastronomy. Every week, the presenters would pop over to someone’s house, try to get them to plan their meals and eat more sensibly.
There was a fundamental problem with BBC One’s scheduling of Torchwood: Children of Earth. And that problem was that it was on every single night of last week. It was perfect for the story - of that I cannot deny. However I was out on Wednesday evening and on Thursday evening too. The result was I ended up watching three episodes back to back on Friday evening which was, to be honest, a little on the intense side. It’s a rather dark plot after all.
Yes there are some.
Frankly something now has to be done, because for my mind, if you’re going to enter a song contest, you’ve got to have a chance of winning. And no one in the west now has a chance of winning. I’ve denied it in the past, but the evidence is now damming.
Being a bit of a keen cook, and someone who likes to do things reasonably properly if possible, I know Delia wasn’t really aimed at me. I mean, there’s just no way on earth you’ll find frozen mashed potato in my freezer.
Whilst sitting down to a nice, homemade green Thai curry last night, we happened to catch the second half of “Eurovision: Your Decision” last night which meant I got to see a strange woman in a corset and an extremely short skirt, Michelle Gayle and Andy Abraham battle it out in front of Terry Wogan sat on a throne in a programme format which was clearly designed to try and stop the UK public from voting for some diabolical crap again.
With the latest series of Doctor Who getting ever closer, news is creeping out about cast and enemies. Like this little one today - according to BBC News, Billie Pipper is popping back for three more episodes.
It’s one of those news stories that just makes me shake my head and ask… why? For today I read that Granada are planning on remaking The Prisoner.
The new look Cybermen have so obviously been reading the Daily Mail…
I have a TV on my desk. It’s usually turned on. Today it was turned on during Neighbours. Today in Neighbours, Sky Mangle meets Harold’s new friend. Harold’s new friend looks just like Sky’s dead mother.
Less than 2 days to go now…
Willow The Wisp is to return. Long live The Moog!
Unbelievably I haven’t mentioned Doctor Who yet. This coming from a man whose favourite programme when growing up featured a blue police box and a sonic screwdriver.
Mortals! You defy the Gods? I sentence you to travel among unknown stars. Until you find the Kingdom of Hades, your bodies will stay as lifeless as stone.
Watching it and seeing the processed crap that kids get served at school… well I’m not particularly impressed.
Okay I’ll be honest. When it comes to opera… well. And as for flashmobbing… well the phrase ‘new media wanker’ is what usually springs to mind.. So you can perhaps see why something called ‘Flashmob - The Opera’, well… might not really work in my mind…
In Ealing Common is a road - it cuts through the common, although is a dead end. Quite often in the morning, there will be a series of film crews and trucks wandering around. But that’s nothing in comparison to what is right next door to our new place…
One thing puzzled me whilst watching the excellent Little Britain on BBC Three which ended a few weeks back but iscoming soon to BBC Two - why was it shown without a DOG?
BBC Four told the story of the wonderful Radiophonic Workshop.
Futurama is good, Futurama is great.
From the Files of Police Squad - one of the best TV programmes, and the one that gave birth to The Naked Gun.
It’s Eurovision! For some reason…
Ali G has a new series set in the USA. Tired or revitalised? Matter of opinion really.
Spaced is a fantasic programme. Buy it, watch it, enjoy it. These three things I command of ye.
Red Dwarf is wonderful, Red Dwarf is great. Red Dwarf is fantastic, and it is, my mate.
