Watched Sayeeda Warsi last night doing a walk in Wharfdale, she made it very interesting and kept our attention.

She kept the attention very well, which I’m afraid odd ones of the others didn’t.

I didn't see the episode, but I've kept an eye on, and admired Baroness Warsi for quite a while. She's often my first reaction to the words 'democratically elected'.

Worth reading her wikipedia entry carefully. I can't find anywhere this lady, successful politician, high official in the Conservative Paty, former Government Minister, Secretary of State, and of course member of the House of Lords, has ever been 'democratically elected' for anything.

Makes me wonder what the secret of her success can be. :smile:

Watched part3 of The Serpent last night, it certainly held the attention and kept us quiet.

We’ve toyed with doing Traces binge, tonight it clashes with The Pembrokeshire Murders, which looks good.

Pembrokeshire three episode series looks to be heading to the awards I'd say. Must say however that I have read that a made up character was added to make it all more modern, and tick the required boxes. If that's true, was it really necessary? I don't think so. This was a good dramatisation of an actual case, not fiction.

I've had a quick look at the BBC schools science progarmme at 1.00 pm called Bite Size.
Another box ticker with Greta Thunberg the star turn. This isn't education it's a bit of gentle brain washing. :smile:

Anyone remember BBC and ITV schools broadcasts in the 60s/70s ? Anyway if anything was factually incorrect I am sure you can write to POV and correct the matter.

The Pembrokeshire Murders was excellent, definitely keeps the attention, a really good watch.

We watched the first episode of Finding Alice last night with Keeley Hawes as Alice and Dafne Keen as her daughter who played Lyra in His Dark Materials. Looks promising, can watch it all on demand if we fancy a binge session.

Over the last two nights I've watched the Pembroke coast walk murders. It kept my attention. I might graduate to The Serpent tonight!

The Serpent does a lot of time hopping but is a good production. Truth always is better than fiction.

There’s quite a few things at the moment to binge on when tv is boring.
Long Lost Family tonight opposite Traces, another decision to be made in our household.

Think we’d have been better with Long Lost Family. Traces finishes tomorrow night, and tonight’s episode was getting me tangled up.

Caught up on Long Lost Family, some families and institutions were awful. Also watched last of Traces, worth watching the series if you haven’t seen it.

We caught up on episode 5 of Traces last night and still have 6 to go. I'm enjoying it, probably because it doesn't try to be too clever!

Neil Diamond night on BBC4 last night (Friday). This, from 10 years ago, is really good

Still keeping up with The Serpent, just have to concentrate when it keeps flitting backwards and forwards, seems to have been going on for ages, must be near the end now.
