Eight Go Rallying: The Road to Saigon (2018 )

In an exhilarating four-part BBC series, four celebrity duos put their driving skills and relationships to the test as they join in on a part of the Endurance Rally Association's Road to Saigon in a fleet of classic cars. Each of the celebrity duos sports a range of skills and they start their adventure in bespoke rally-prepped cars: broadcasting legend Noel Edmonds and his wife Liz drive a classic MGB GT; husband and wife Martin Kemp (Spandau Ballet; EastEnders) and Shirlie Kemp (Wham!) drive a 1972 Mini; restaurateur and food broadcaster Andi Oliver and her TV presenter daughter Miquita Oliver have the oldest car - a 1959 Morris Minor; and friends Tinchy Stryder (rapper) and Jordan Stephens (Rizzle Kicks) have been given a Hillman Imp.

From Chiang Mai in northern Thailand through Cambodia and Vietnam, their challenge is to drive over 3,000km, through some of the least-explored areas of the region and taking on some of the most challenging roads in the world. Over 12 days, the series captures all the laughs, beautiful landscapes and inevitable drama of this truly unique journey revealing if the celebrity ralliers have got what it takes to make it all the way to the finish line. To be in with a chance of getting to the finishing line, they have to work closely in their driver/navigator pairs finding their way using a Tulip Map and try to keep their cool when engines fail and cars break down. The ralliers also have a chance to soak up the sights and sounds of this part of the world and reflect on its recent past.

In the first episode, the celebrity pairs are plunged straight into the busy rush hour of northern Thailand's biggest city, Chiang Mai, with only an obscure Tulip Map to guide them onto the open roads and up over the phenomenally steep Chae Son Hills. This once-in-a-lifetime experience tests the teams, and their cars, to the limit.

The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan (2018 )

Episode 3: Albania

BBC comedy travel documentary series in the same vein as Karl Pilkington's An Idiot Abroad.

Romesh Ranganathan is a British comedian and TV presenter whose idea of a nice trip away is two weeks in the Algarve. In this three-part series, he is travelling way beyond his comfort zone and the world of complimentary breakfast buffets to some of the most unlikely places on earth for a holiday. Hosted by locals and fully immersed in the local culture, Romesh gets an eye-opening, and at times heart-stopping, insider's guide to countries that are big on natural beauty, character and charm.

In this episode, Romesh travels to Albania to get an insider's guide to the country and to find out whether his own preconceptions about the Eastern European outpost are right. From a brief glance at an atlas, Albania has everything - beaches on the same coastline as Greece and Croatia, hills to trek in and stunning mountains. But for some reason all the average Brit knows about Albania is the old black and white clips from the communist era - and most of those have been mistaken for clips shot in Moscow.

On arrival, Romesh does indeed discover a country that is bleak and miserable, but then again it is raining, and even his native Crawley seems a bit lacklustre in the rain. Guided by local TV presenter and journalist Erjona Rusi, Romesh is taken on a whistle-stop tour of the country. He visits the beaches (apparently stunning in the summer, but when Ramesh arrives it is -10 degrees) and is hosted on a unique homestay in a beautiful isolated shepherds' village, where he is sent out on overnight wolf patrol and then embarks on a treacherous seven-hour journey into the mountains.

Along the way, Romesh tries to discover why Albania has remained a stubbornly unfashionable holiday destination, while many other formerly communist nations have leapt ahead. Romesh meets those at the extremes of this unique country, from the rural farmers to the billionaire playboys who live in the cities next to supermodels. He ends up with sheep poo mysteriously smeared across his back and, in a move he will doubtless come to regret, a tattoo emblazoned across his forearm. He finds a people desperate to throw off their reputation as the home of eastern mafia gangs, lots of Raki and a level of hospitality that he describes as 'second to none' as he gets an insider's guide to Albania.

I'm watching this new British sitcom it comes out on DVD.

Karl Pilkington, the comedian famous for his comedy travel shows An Idiot Abroad and The Moaning of Life, has co-written (along with Richard Yee, who directs this new show and directed An Idiot Abroad and The Moaning of Life) and stars in this new sitcom, Sick of It.

The series is set around Ladbroke Grove in London and follows Karl, a down on his luck taxi driver who has broken up with his girlfriend, moved in with his elderly auntie, and is struggling to get his life back on track. Karl's closest companion is the voice in his head, a crotchety, misanthropic alter ego who takes the form of his double it's the uncensored true version of Karl that says what he really thinks without the risk of offending others. As Karl attempts to move on from the break up and sort out his life, the voice in his head appears periodically to guide, criticise and dispense his unorthodox philosophy of life.

I was watching the MMWI but it turned out to be a complete waste of my time as I am not one step closer to understanding what it is about as it appears the speakers have another agenda that does not so much as touch upon the reason for being there. And they wonder why the inquiry is going nowhere.
Christopher Bollyn - Solving 9 11 Audiobook - Narrated by Christopher Bollyn

Solving 9-11 constitutes the ultimate fearless treatment of the subject of the 9/11 attacks. Christopher Bollyn has performed the highest act of journalistic heroism—by calling out perhaps the most powerful and sadistic Mob masquerading as the most sacred of sacred cows in human history. Further, he has done so succinctly, with clear, passionate writing.

I never get tired of watching this movie narrated by none other or who better, than Woody Harrelson.
Tony Robinson's Crime and Punishment

Episode 1: Feud Glorious Feud

Former Blackadder star Tony Robinson embarks on a journey exploring the origins of British justice, and the punishments awaiting criminals who fell foul of it.

This first programme examines the surprisingly sophisticated series of laws established by King Alfred in the first millennium AD, when Anglo-Saxon family feuds often ended in bloodshed.


Episode 2: Guilty As Charred

The presenter discovers how a turbulent 150 years left Britain with professional judges, trial by jury and a set of laws for the entire country. He visits a town where Norman ideas inspired punishments for modern-day Asbo offenders, and finds out how a muddy field in Surrey changed international legal history.


Episode 3: New King on the Block

The battle over freedom of speech and how the monarch finally lost its power, and its head. As crucial as the Magna Carta, the introduction of the Bill of Rights in 1688 saw Parliament and politicians now assume complete domination over the monarchy for good.


Episode 4: Have I Got Noose for You

The presenter concludes his series looking at the origins of the British judicial system, investigating how decisive political power was finally handed over to the voting majority, and examining the industrious 18th century - a time when property was king, and more than 200 offences could result in capital punishment.

Blackadder's Christmas Carol (1988 )

A comedy inversion of the classic Dickens novel.

Ebenezer Blackadder, the proprietor of a London moustache shop, is the nicest man in all of England. But on Christmas Eve night he is visited by a genial spirit, after which Blackadder resolves to mend his generous ways.

Why is that in the 'nonfiction section' in your world but part of the 'list of things to in the next 12 months' instead?? Even worse is why you would think nobody would notice.
Poirot is on now.

The murder victim grabbed hold of a pom-pom on the murderer's harlequin costume just when he was about to die to give the authorities a clue as to the identity of the murderer. The detective Poirot found the pom-pom clenched in the corpse's fist.

It's lucky he wasn't killed his Uncle Dick.
