    That documentary sounds really interesting, I'll have to check it out. Michael Palin has kept extensive journals over the years and his series of published diaries give fascinating and humorous insight into Python and other projects that he has been involved with. It's all from his perspective of course, but they are really enjoyable to read.

      For those of us in the UK there’s a series starting on BBC2 tonight at 8:30pm called Our Coast that explores coastlines along the Irish Sea. It’s starts in Liverpool and will almost certainly show Crosby beach and the Sir Anthony Gormley Another Place iron men. I grew up half a mile from that beach, played footy on it throughout my childhood and even swam in the River Mersey which, at the time, was the dirtiest river in Europe. I’ve even seen it with the surface on fire. Thankfully it’s all lovely and clean and full of fish nowadays.

      Hopefully the programme will do Liverpool’s coastline justice.

        Sounds like a really beautiful area and an interesting television series. Being here in the states I won't be able to see it, at least not right away. Perhaps it will turn up on YouTube or even on one of our PBS stations. PBS around here shows a very large amount of British television, but it takes a long time for them to acquire screening rights.

          Well, being a Yank I can't say I know much about the coastlines of the Irish Sea except that off the beach near Harlech Wales, I believe in the sandy shallows of Bae Ceredingion, is an occasionally exposed Lockheed P-38F that ditched there in late '42 due to fuel starvation after the pilot failed to switch fuel tanks.

            I have been watching some original Lost In Space.

            Right now, I'm watching Cannon on MeTV. (on antenna, not internet or cable)

              Me and the Mrs. really enjoy MeTV, the old shows are very entertaining and great fun.

              We have a ton of Alfred Hitchcock Presents on the DVR from that channel and watch and episode or 3 almost every night.

                I watched most of the Electric Light Orchestra concert that is available on Showtime.

                It's really good.

                  Just binge watched the first three episodes of American Gods. I loved the book, admittedly after abandoning in confusion the first attempt to read it, and am not normally a fan of fantasy novels on screen, largely because I prefer to use my own imagination. However, the TV version of American Gods is rather splendid.

                  The other worldly atmosphere is superbly realised by keeping “real life” characters out of the action, and Shadow Moon’s bemusement is nicely done. I’m about to get stuck into more episodes.
