5.0 out of 5 stars A trip down memory lane!, 4 April 2013
I used to have a VHS copy of this landmark show but a (former) friend borrowed it and I didn't get it back.

When I received the DVD through the post I was a little concerned at first as the cover was not very professionally produced; it looked a little like a bootleg cover. However, I concluded that the the photos on the cover were taken from the disc which is of a programme that's over 25 years old and most certainly not HD.

This version has a number of changes from my old VHS copy. Most immediately noticed is that it's been cropped to make it widescreen. This was done well and nothing was obviously lost as a result and it does look better filling my TV screen. There… Read more

However, it is an attractive design and looks good on display in the kitchen. The bean hopper… Read more
Nokia 02732H7 - DC-16 Portable Charger Black by Nokia

Smartphones are increasingly power-hungry. What is worse, more and more of them have a non-removeably battery (or, in the case of my N8, difficult to remove). Rechargeable batteries have a limited life and after several months, depending on how often you recharge it, its capacity to hold charge is reduced.......significantly.

This is where the DC-16 comes in. My N8 is still fully functional but I now need to charge it more than once a day; if I'm out for the day and using its excellent camera as well as other phone functions then it will more likely than not lose all power before I get to an electricity socket. The DC-16 is a convenient size and weight to slip into a pocket and… Read more
