Telstar - the story of Joe Meek.

The actor playing John Leyton looked uncannily like him.

Was that Noel Fielding plying Screaming Lord Sutch*?

One point though. The actor playing Heinz was really ugly compared to the pretty boy he really was.

* Sorry - Justin Hawkins.

I saw that a while ago. Directed by Nick Moran, "Lock Stock" actor. Film never really took off for me.

Have you/Lofty seen "Good Vibrations", about the guy in Belfast with the record shop & label who put out "Teenage Kicks"? That was good.

Yeah, title is a tad confusing.

I reckon it's worth it if you can pick up a copy for around a fiver. (I rented it.) Or wait and see if you get any more opinions on here.

Presumably you've seen already seen this classic?

No - never heard of it either.

Did love Lovejoy. My type of programme. A cleverish story, a fair bit of humour and an attractive woman to look at.

Saw "Rude Boy" in the cinema when it was first released. When I rewatched it a few years ago on telly, I thought it held up pretty well. I was at the Victoria Park Rock Against Racism gig featured in the film - remember Jimmy Pursey coming on stage. Also remember the band did a brilliant version of "Clash City Rockers". Steel Pulse, X-Ray Spex, and Tom Robinson were on the bill too. It was quite a day - began with a march, I think.

I like it

The Clash detested it!

Sure the 'story line' is a total shambles and all over the place and makes no sense

But it's just a great documentation of what was going on on the streets at that time

And that's just a nice extra

The thing that makes it is the bloody superb live footage of the band

I never tire of the Police and Thieves part - joe strummer was the perfect front man

Just stuck on Partrimilgrimage: Alan Partridge Specials DVD. Love the "Welcome to The Places of My Life" special but don't think much to the "Open Books" one.

Agree with you there. I live in Norwich so I always get an extra kick out of all the locations and local references. The swimming pool interview is a work of genius.

I'm currently watching Batman. Someone just stole a priceless Siamese cat statue from a museum and disabled the security guard by throwing a domestic cat at him. I think this episode's special guest villain might be Catwoman. Now Batman is giving Robin a safety lecture because he didn't wear his seatbelt in the batmobile. Brilliant!

I went to UEA as a mature student back in 2000; I lasted two months and transferred closer to home the following academic year. It was a splendid city though and yes, I've seen the Partridge special and loved the references. I also enjoyed the book festival interview.

There was a guy on the train reading I, Partridge this morning. I must get the e-book to accompany my paperback; Coogan's rendition is superb.
