BGT is not my thing at all but I know my wife will be tuning in.

What I have been watching is World’s Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji. Absolutely fascinating documentary about a test of skill, endurance & stamina, an amazing testament to what humans can do. The show is great though because its interlaced with very intimate (and sometimes tearjerking) stories. Like the guy racing one last time with his Dad who has early onset of Alzheimer’s disease. The team all in their 60s, others dealing with personal tradegies or facing their fears. Great show.

Bear Grylls is the “anchorman” of the show.

Sounds interesting, Steve – I like to watch the incredible things some people are capable of, but from the comfort
of my armchair!

Is anyone watching Britain’s got talent

“Contagion” Thriller. This film came out way back in 2011 and imagines how a global pandemic may affect the world. Watching it now it plays out almost like a documentary, accurately portraying random virus causation and rapid proliferation, media manipulation, mass graves, unprepared medical sector, track and trace, news spin, whistleblowers, big pharma profit prophets, political blundering, panic buying, vaccine hysteria, looting, military intervention with alarming accuracy…makes you think whether Hollywood knows a lot more than we do in advance with current world events. All star cast, excellent character portrayals, There’s also a rather quirky short animated public information film about how to survive a pandemic as a “bonus” feature…doesn’t get more topical than this.

I wouldn’t know really. Seemed realistic enough but I have no frame of reference. What was interesting was that the series hasn’t stopped now the bad guy has been caught. They are keeping the team together to build the case, get their documentation, evidence sorted & “ducks in a row” for the CPS.

Watched a fascinating documentary last night all about the Irish Potato Famine of 1845-47.
Made me quite ashamed to be English!

its very detailed portrayal of police and hospital procedures

Unfortunately there are many ‘Police’ programmes on television that are just made for entertainment and the procedures or should I say lack of them may make good entertainment but are nowhere near reality.
