    Given the total lack of anything worth watching on the TV these days
    I've largely gone over to watvhing DVDs. HMV have had a decent sale
    of old British films recently so for a fiver each I picked up The Blue
    Lamp, The Third Man, Brighton Rock, In Which We Serve and Quatermass &
    the Pit, all of which I've either not seen or not seen for a very long

    Watched Quatermass the other day - very risible. But last night I
    watched the Blue Lamp - which starts out talking about the crime wave
    (of the late 40s) involving kids from broken homes, senseless violence
    (that "proper" criminals would never use, ha ha) and the casual use of
    guns. Apart from the lack of cars on the streets, the clothes and
    people finding Two Ton Tessy an entertainer worth watching, it could
    have been set today in many ways. Quite odd.

    Well, quite. It's all the fucking press selling papers and TV selling
    adverts plus the government and 'others' encouraging us to believe we're
    not safe.

    Yeah, and the moon landings were fake and the CIA killed Kennedy and
    Roswell is crawling with aliens and you're not a mad **** :)

    Don't forget the Van Allen belt, no man can get through it alive.

    Well one out of the above four might be true.

    These have all been on the box in the last 12 or so months as I've
    recorded them onto DVD - except IWWS but that's on later this week.

    Probably. But I'm far too disorganised to do anything constructive
    like recording them..

    Like I'm going to take any advice from some old codger that admits to
    having been on the Crystal Maze!

    There was 'Things to come' a while ago. First time I'd seen it and I
    was rather impressed.

    And anyone foolish enough to try travelling at speeds in excess of 20mph
    will surely suffocate.

    I saw a prog on TV not long ago showing and describing the horrendous
    pollution affecting the larger cities of the UK. Apparently there were
    thousands of tons of crap being released and not a lot being done to keep
    things under control.

    The photo's of the cities were all in the 1800's and the crap really WAS
    crap. Horse crap piled along the edge of the roads (such as they were).

    There's nothing new.
