Was it Frankie Lane who sang the theme to Champion the Wonder Horse?

Yes, an uncredited (surprising) Frankie Laine.

Didn't mention it previous, but now we're picking people up on spelling again............................... :P

TV Reminders NOT to watch.

What are the gems in the BBC crown tonight?

Citizen Khan and Mother Brown's Boys. It shows what it's come down to. Two racial stereotypes albeit played by the writers taking the piss out of their own people.

But basically a load of crap.

Two worth giving a look.

A pleasant gentle comedy that we Brits do (or did) so well with "Laxdale Hall", which I reviewed last September :-

On TPTV again this Monday 19th at 8.00 AM

And, if you want to see Alastair Sim in his very first film, which has mixed reviews on the IMDb, but I thought when I saw it many years ago (and made a DVD of) was very good; but then, I'm a mega fan of Mr. Sim and I will certainly be recording it for viewing later. It's only about an hour long.

I could certainly see the future police sergeant from the Inspector Hornleigh films in Alastair Sims' portrayal of the police sergeant in this film. Although no Gordon Harker to complement him in this one.

If you are into The Twilight Zone, and such like - the original type of this series (pre Zone etc.) "One Step Beyond" is being shown from S1 E1, from 1959 starting on Tuesday 11/5 at 6 pm on TPTV.

Stars such as Warren Beatty, William Shatner and even our own Alfred Burke** make guest appearances.

** Watching him in the "Public Eye" series, currently. V Good.
