  1. I was directed to this website through a blog I read the other day. It's an amazing resouce of BBC motion graphics through the history of the Beeb, with details on how each peice of work came about and the techniques used to make them. It covers titles, idents, promos and all sorts of stuff - a real nostalgia fest. https://www.ravensbourne.ac.uk/bbc-motion-graphics-archive It's going to be a pleasure dipping into all the content on there. Here's a nice one to start with seeing as it's Christmastime... https://www.ravensbourne.ac.uk/bbc-motion-graphics-archive/bbc2-christmas-tin-toy-ident-1993
  2. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-34711492 Hopefully this will fare better than the movie adaptations.
  3. BBC and Mackenzie Crook are making two hour-long Worzel movies for broadcast around Christmas. Crook is writing, directing and starring. Apparently many of The Detectorists team are involved.
  4. I loved the C64 and Amiga versions back in the day but for now have a look at this cracking port to the BBC! http://www.indieretronews.com/2019/03/stunt-car-racer-mind-blowing-port.html#more
  5. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b083xxj0/back-in-time-for-brixton-episode-1 I thoroughly enjoyed both episodes of this. A family goes through what life was like for West Indian families from 1948 onwards, experiencing the living conditions and food, learning about the racial politics and, where possible, meeting people from the time. Along the way there's some excellent archive footage and hugely touching moments - meeting the chap who led the Bristol Bus Boycott which led the the passing of the race-relations act, for instance. Naturally there's some great music along the way, and the family get the chance to meet Lover's Rock singer Janet Kay and Jazzy B from Soul II Soul. The family themselves are really nice - the kids are receptive to learning about black history in Britain, and it's fun watching the parents revisit the decades they grew up in. A great oral account of an aspect of our recent history that, as one of the kids notes, doesn't really get taught.
  6. OH SHIT SON Previous years' threads are here:
  7. BBC Four have got Keith Richards choosing of archive clips and films to be shown over this weekend. (As well as repeating The Origin of the Species, the entertaining interview/documentary about him from earlier in the year.) http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07wwtj6 This is the first section - includes a Tex Avery cartoon, an episode of Hancock's Half-Hour, and ten strangely hypnotic minutes of first-person driving round '70s Paris: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b07wwtvy/keith-richards-lost-weekend-1-keith-at-the-controls Worth the licence fee alone!
