    ^ Thanks for that dardar. The video quality is pretty crappy but it's better than nothing -- I'll save that as my plan b. if I can't find a better copy to download.

    Thank you thank you thank you! Skatesindreams is my new favourite person -- she sent me a nice HQ version of Call the Midwife, so I can stop sulking now!

    Loved it, of course. Esp. Trixie and Sister Julienne.

    Did you miss last night's documentary "Chasing Shackleton"? See it http://to.pbs.org/19fR559 (continues next Wednesday) #ShackletonPBS
    Fascinating documentary of the attempted recreation of a miserable, dangerous journey...6 modern adventurers, 22 foot boat, freezing cold , crappy food, always wet, rough and dangerous seas...and this is only after about 5 days at sea and only about 25% of the sea journey covered!

    I can't wait for Parts 2 and 3!

    In addition to the June return of “Last Tango in Halifax,” a “Masterpiece” romance starring Derek Jacobi, PBS will feature the actor paired with another knighted performer, Ian McKellen, in “Vicious,” a rare half-hour sitcom for the network. Both programs will begin their runs on June 29.
    McKellen and Jacobi both appeared via satellite in support of “Vicious,” an ITV series in which they play a gay couple that’s been together for nearly 50 years. Asked about the general lack of such projects featuring older stars in the U.S., Jacobi quipped that the willingness in the U.K. to construct shows around septuagenarians is “certainly very good for us and our bank balances.”

    I've seen a couple of episodes of Vicious, and I thought it was one of the worst things I've seen on TV. Ever. I don't find couples bickering to be entertaining anyway, but when it's dripping with out-of-date stereotypes it's offensive and sickening. Awful, just awful. And I'm astounded that top-notch performers like McKellan and Jacobi would take on such roles.

    Well, that's one vote for "SKIP IT!"

    But now I HAVE to see it.

    ^ Oh yes, definitely see for yourself. I'd been "warned off" by someone else before I watched, but that made me even more curious ...

    Our PBS station has been replaying the Jimi Hendrix bio on American Masters & I just can't keep myself from watching it over & over. I did not realize he was such an introvert offstage. Who knew Dweezil Zappa had grown up into such a handsome young man????

    The other one I admit to watching more than once is Don McLean: American Troubadour. He has never been one of my favorites, but I had to take another look after I heard Roberta Flack named him as the subject of Killing Me Softly. (And go back in my memory wondering how I never knew that when I was a young kid singing along with every word!)

    Did you miss last night's broadcast of the new documentary "Hawking"? You can stream it online here: http://to.pbs.org/1eapiVo
    I thought this was a very interesting documentary...a glimpse of the man behind the mind.
