5.0 out of 5 stars Plausible History, 14 Nov. 2001
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A Very british Coup stays remarkably faithful to the book unlike many adaptations. Everything within is entirely plausible and totally believable especially when you consider it is set in the late 1980's when so many people were still clamouring for a radical left wing government. This does go to show what could have happened and the unseen forces that may be at work behind the public face of government. The acting of the late Ray MacAnally is gripping as he entwines you into his sub plots and twists and turns. You are hooked from the first moments and there is no low point that I can recall. if you appreciate political dramas then this is perfect for you

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic McCartney, 14 Nov. 2001
This review is from: Flaming Pie (Audio CD)
A simple return to McCartney's glory years. The Beatles were the greatest, Wings not at all bad...but Macca on his own with some of his mates featured in guest spots shows just why the great man can still cut it with the best.
There is something here for everyone's taste not just the popular released numbers but also the more melodic and totally tuneful such as 'Calico Skies.'
You would be doing yourself a real treat and favour in at least listening to the excerpts but BUY it is all i can say. Also...and i wish it was available on video...maybe it is...is the filming of the making of Flaming Pie...many interesting out-takes with ringo etc...but particularly with Linda...'Calico Skies' will always make me think of her and if you watch the making of the album you will understand why.

5.0 out of 5 stars You just need to see it...and accept it, 27 Oct. 2001
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The HHG is surreal yet an incredibly funny look at all things outside your total understanding of the Universe. After the initial scepticism of a space traveller dressed in his dressing gown, you get to accept Arthur and Ford as old friends, strange, but old friends. Their journies take them all over the place finally ending up on pre historic earth. And if you thought we were descended from cave men...then think again. When you consider this all came out of the head of the late Douglas Adams, you can only marvel at the way the BBC has stayed relatively true to the original script. It was only a pity that series 2, broadcast on the radio and still available as part of a double pack tape box, was not filmed for TV.
OK...some of the scenes may now look a little dated as it is 1980's technology...but what the heck...as the HHG says...Don't Panic!!!
