Congratulations Lazzard's daughter, she's obviously from talented stock.

Well you know that talent usually skips a generation.

The Lancaster Bomber at 80 - fascinating documentary, with stuff I didn't realise.

Omega Factor repeated on Forces TV, late 70's UK pre-X Filesque type show, quite good if you like old Who and that kind of thing, got into it a few years back. Also, Blake's 7, oh Jenna... Mind you, just seen one where Villa's captured by two very tasty bounty hunters indeed.

The Lancaster Bomber at 80 - fascinating documentary, with stuff I didn't realise.

I love anything to do with WW2 aircraft. I missed that.
Probably because my father-inlaw flew a Stirling heavy bomber during the war.
He never dropped a single bomb though - he dropped supplies for the D Day landing and the French resistance.
The Lancaster took over from the Stirling as the preferred bomber.

It holds special memories for me as my father worked on them before he was demobbed, and have a clear memory of him taking me into the main hangar at RAF Upwood to have a look inside a Lancaster, and even though I was a tiny 4-year-old sprog at the time, I still managed to bang my head on the sub-frame inside; but was rewarded by being able to sit in the cockpit and make engine/propeller noises.

Also remember sitting up at my bedroom window watching them taking off over our house, when they woke me up.

Such happy days, as my Dad was my hero and it's times like this I really miss him, even after all these years *sniff*

Squid Game - the final episode.

Ru Paul's Drag Race UK. Completely deranged show existing in its own bubble, divorced from the real world. Great fun.

Secret Army on TPTV.

Geoffrey Fourmile as an injured RAF pilot and Brian Glover as a German soldier.

Secret Army on TPTV.

... Brian Glover as a German soldier.

"Ich read ein buch once. Grun it was"

Brian Glover's Yorkshire accent kept creeping into his German accent.

Jawohl! Ya booger, it were a reet invaysion.
