I'll admit I have neglected it largely for that reason. They must have a very low opinion of our attention span....

This series of A House Through Time has been exceptional. If they could just cut out the annoying beginning where they tell you the whole story in 2 second snippets it would be brilliant.
I've been videoing it, yet to watch one, blame The Widow.

I've saved Earth from Space and the accompanying programme on BBC2 for tonight. Snooker and Line of Duty filled my evening!

Since from he coverage in the press it seemed I was the only person in the country who had never seen a singe episode of all five series, I forced myself to watch it all last night. How on earth did they learn all that complex interview dialogue? Knowing that 'H' in morse code is four dots made me feel quite smug. :smile:

Catch up with something called 'Game of Thrones' next - though I've no idea how to get it on my TV.

Mrs P says that unless you have Sky Atlantic or whatever Sky provides through their service the only other option is Kodi, which is what she uses.

Actually you are Number 2. but I'll give you the Morse code 'H' even though Dad had tried to drum it into me once. He was a signaller during the war.

I passed my Morse qualification at the Ships Radio Inspectors Office at Princess Dock, Hull in 1980, it's filled in now and a shopping centre I believe. :sad: I must not be very observant, I missed the H completely. :surprised: :confused:

Watched it last night. I knew it was that woman behind it and said so after the last episode....
Watched the end of the snooker final and then the rest of Series 3 of Line of Duty.
Never seen any Game of Thrones.....

I haven't watched any Game of Thrones but Col has watched it at times. Stanley I think we all suspected that the creepy woman was involved, but nobody expected the ginger cop to do that! :laugh5:

Did you hear the piece on R4 yesterday about the impact Game of Thrones was having on the number of Husky/Akita/ Mamaluke type of dogs ending up in rescue centres?

Well, I'm one more, Gloria. I've heard enough about it and seen pics in the newspaper and on the web but I just don't need that in my life. There's enough drama in real life!

No Wendy. Why is that the case?
Life without snooker...... I am still working my way through Line of Duty..... Half way through the next to the last series.... Riveting stuff but disturbing.

They have become very popular because of the programme but the little fluffy pups soon turn into large and uncontrollable dogs that end up in rescues.

I finished series 4 of Line of Duty. I think I am up to speed now and ready for the next batch! (Might re-watch the finale of Series 5 again. Could be better now that I have the historic plot in my head....

I had to switch off Earth from Space after 20 minutes last night. The piece on the Orang Utangs upset me so much. 80% have gone because of loss of habitat and the remainder are under threat.

For some reason 'Have I got News for You' was cancelled last night. I wonder if they went a bit too far and the lawyers stepped in...

Heidi Allen MP was on the panel, and as she is leader of Change UK it was considered unfair under BBC rules in the run up to the EU election.
