The Stuarts on BBC

Post by j1mwallace » Fri Feb 21, 2014 10:57 am

I recorded and have just watched the 3 part series on the Stuarts which the BBC have just transmitted. Did any of you other fine chaps watch it?
I thought that it was quite well done, pretty unbiased and explained their
downfall pretty well.
just shows that the BBC are still the best at these kind of programmes

Interesting, thanks...is it simply "The Stuarts" as a title? It's likely the series will eventually appear here, trick is becoming aware of the event with the 100s (1,000s? :shock:) of broadcast channels here.

Our own satellite company has upward of 1,000, the vast majority having "utter drivel" in content. :x Mustn't complain I do get tons of international Rugby and European football, as compensation (for the drivel). 8)

So much for a morning rant, sorry, time to start the coffee. :wink:

Cheers,

Michael

Watched it myself as well Jim.

Have to agree with you that it was, in my opinion, a pretty good piece of work, and well worth the watching if you can catch it!!

Cheers

You may call it sarcasm........I, on the other hand, prefer to refer to it as a humorous observation!!! :-)

Thanks, I will look into it. We have separate satellite companies (live in rural area of east-central California) for each, TV & internet, streaming has not been a success thus far. :cry:

Cheers,

Gunter,
Thanks for the link. I went and saved it as a "watch later", so I can watch it through my smart T.V. later.
