The Staggering Stories of Ferdinand De Flambe!

Or soemthing like that? Do you remeber it now? It was on about twenty years ago when the BBC was a force to be reckoned with. Now they are desperate to win back viewers on the web-de-tent thingy attched to the wires on the compueter some how? Its all a bit of a mystery - a bit like the people who choose all the shows that the Beeb put out these days. Mind you the director, Victory Loius -Smythe who had a hand in the above delightful nonsense inn the 80's has recently delighted us with some fabulous docs . on BBC 4 about Celia Derbyshire and the Radiophonic Workshop and Jake Thackray the troubadour and wit. So she's certainly gone up in my estimations!

meanwhile dot dot dot...
as Viv stanshall used to say. The Total Loonie Eclipse was a fantastic site and we enjoyed it so much we have ordered another for next year - here at the back of the Radio Times with all the shed adverts.

I think it was Ferdinand de Marcos, and they were indeed wonderful little 10 minute msh ups of old films and newsreal with hilarious voice overs!

and from this little tale, i think I could quite enjoy BBC4! Unfortunately, we're with Virginmedia now and Sky have just declared war and upped the price of Sky One so no old NTL/Virgin viewers can now enjoy 24 or Lost. Bloomin' media-moguls, come over here, take our TV programmes...
