Rumpole Of The Bailey - Series One [1978] [VHS]
Rumpole Of The Bailey - Series One [1978] [VHS]
"To start the day, how about an episode of Rumpole? A wonderful series, perhaps not quite befitting an early claret drinking game!""
Rant In E-Minor
Rant In E-Minor
""Plain catharsis here, with a great Bill Hicks CD... Some of his darkest and most inspired humour; "I'm gonna catch me a Gideon!""
Carrie's War (Puffin Books)
Carrie's War (Puffin Books)
""Carrie's War; a strangely sublime, evocative children's book I had fond memories of, which were more than fulfilled by a recent reading""
Sunflower/Surf's Up
Sunflower/Surf's Up
""Two truly excellent albums from the sublime Beach Boys; group efforts as well, not relying solely on Brian Wilson; "All I Wanna Do", "A Day in the Life of a Tree", "Surf's Up"... so much loved music""
Jamaica Inn (Penguin Readers (Graded Readers))
Jamaica Inn (Penguin Readers (Graded Readers))
""Jamaica Inn; the epitomy of a rollicking good adventure story; in many ways a light read, but it is a massively entertaining, and at times quite beautiful story with top-notch characters""
Doctor Who: City Of Death [VHS]
Doctor Who: City Of Death [VHS]
""Back to video for this little gem; City of Death, a Dr Who serial from 1979 is an exceptional Parisian outing for this often misjudged series; enjoy this summery wit with fine wines and good friends""
The Singing Detective: Volume 1 [VHS] [1986]
The Singing Detective: Volume 1 [VHS] [1986]
""A "golden era" drama, Singing Detective is high art but far from stuffy or highbrow; 'tis an irreverent, melancholic, hilarious tour-de-force of writing, acting, production. Dennis Potter; a hero""
Why Bother?: Sir Arthur Streeb-Greebling in Conversation with Chris Morris (BBC Radio Collection)
Why Bother?: Sir Arthur Streeb-Greebling in Conversation with Chris Morris (BBC Radio Collection)
""Peter Cook and Chris Morris; a great comic combination works wonderfully, with this eccentric exercise in improvised absurdism and anecdote""
Kind Hearts and Coronets [VHS] [1949]
Kind Hearts and Coronets [VHS] [1949]
""Maybe my favourite British film, this Ealing comedy is an absolute joy, with a wit unmatched in so much film, a lovely atmosphere and fine playing""
The Day Today - 1 [VHS] [1994]
The Day Today - 1 [VHS] [1994]
""This is the news...! You'll never feel quite the same way about news again, as Morris and co. satirize it brilliantly and create so many sketches, items, characters and voices of sublime absurdity""
Crimes And Misdemeanours [VHS] [1990]
Crimes And Misdemeanours [VHS] [1990]
""Woody Allen's best film, just about, in my book, and that is saying something; a wonderful balancing of great Allenesque comedy and more searching drama""
Seventh Seal [VHS] [1957]
Seventh Seal [VHS] [1957]
""Woody's main man, Ingmar Bergman made "The Seventh Seal", one of the most profound, ingenious, beautiful films of all. Juxtaposes the harrowing, the medidative and the warmly humorous so well""
Shakespearean Tragedy: Lectures on Hamlet, Othello, King Lear and  Macbeth (New Penguin Shakespeare Library)
Shakespearean Tragedy: Lectures on Hamlet, Othello, King Lear and Macbeth (New Penguin Shakespeare Library)
""Ah... comes a time when work must intercede; one of the most acclaimed of Shakespeare critical ruminations""

""Some dark, ridiculous fun here... Pinter's plays were a revelation to me when first reading them a year back or so; masterworks of dialogue""
Reich: Music for 18 Musicians
Reich: Music for 18 Musicians
""Reich's music is quite something... mesmerizing; guaranteed to enthrall. Modern classical, minimalism, ambient... Why attach such labels? It is an intensely felt yet very relaxing piece of music""
The Best of Satie
The Best of Satie
""Satie; a genius, and a French one at that ;-) A very original style of piano composition; very idiosyncratic and above all sublime and relaxing. A perfect end to a day.""
