1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Is that still going????? I remember that from the 1950s as kid in Belfast, before TV. Astounded at the thing's longevity.

    Used to quite like Chris Evans on the drive to work. Now I switch stations continuously.

    A fine shew of tolerance , here. Well done! :) I could pretty much have added any of those, though I do rather like the Now show!

    It's " twitter" when she is on Radio 4. On 6 Music she pronounces it " twih-ah " ........ It's a yoof thing, I imagine.

    Almost everything! But specifically:
    Radio 1 (hated it when I was young, still do)
    Eastenders and any of those other soaps. Just watch without sound - the faces of constant misery!
    Most modern comedy-free dramas - miserable

    For us entertainment is an escape so we like comedy, action and romance (or blend) - if it's fantasy so much the better.

    I've had enough "gritty and realistic" in my life already, and I see more on the news, thank you!

    I tried some BBC over the holidays but it did not continue. It has all been off for so long. I bet I miss it when it goes
  12. TheDecameron

    TheDecameron Unicorns fart glitter.

    The One Show is my number one. It only has to get to the second “One” and Ive zapped it. I’m getting flashbacks of Adrian Chiles’ face now writing about it. Reminds me of watching the Singing Ringing Tree when I had chicken pox as a child- scarred for life. Coronation Street is another- music to slash your wrists to. Do they still have those grim opening credits with a cat on a wet slate roof with coal smoke belching out of a chimney?

    Is there anything left?

    Have you thought of dumping your radio?

    Thought for the day I just ignore.
    Most things on TV I just ignore. I've been away all week and not turned the TV on at home or away since Sunday.

    I watch about an hour and a half's worth of TV a week: University Challenge and Les Miserables are the only two I watch regularly, plus the occasional film and BBC4 music programme (if I remember to check the listings, which I rarely do).

    Gardener's Question Time is a funny one. I don't listen to it, but it isn't a brick at the radio type thing. It does though amuse me with the number of panellists over the years who possess amusing aptonyms - Fred Loads, Bill Sowerbutts, Bob Flowerdew, Clay Jones, Pippa Greenwood, Bunny Guinness, Anne Swithinbank.

    Oh, heavens, on the BBC Radio 4 Gardeners Question Time Website, in this week's programme...

    "Chris Beardshaw and Eric Robson dispense advice on good nut maintenance."

    Mustn't miss that!

    Spot on ET, and I don't say that very often. :eek:
    I'd add the ONE Show as well..

    Yes, only comedy if lugubrious = funny.

    Which it doesn't.
