I just watched the first episode of Simon Reeve's Burma, broadcast earlier this week. Very good, and he covers the wonderful places I saw but also he keeps going to the hard news. Quite harrowing in places

I've not seen the Burma programme, although I will try on catch up somehow.

ITV are part three of four into Innocent at the moment and I'm still not sure whether I am enjoying it or not. Well advertised, and a good storyline, and I love the casting of father, son, daughter, all of the cast really. The actors seem so connected, just like real life, I love that in TV. This might have been better on BBC as a one off without all the advert breaks though. I'll miss the final episode only if we have a power cut! :grin:

Yes, we're saving Innocent to the hard drive so we can watch it and ff through the ads! Haven's seen any of it yet though.

The TV guide in today's Guardian has a potential spoiler in it so avoid if you're bothered! :x

I am really annoyed that I didn't see that coming sooner!

I found tonight's final installment thoroughly gripping. I was actually shunted forward onto the edge of my armchair, only coming up for proper air when the ads came on. The ending was highly emotional, and I did cry :oops: which I wasn't expecting. I think it was relief! Such believable acting made me think throughout that this could happen to anyone.

Next drama please! :grin:

Yes, I was riveted to the tv .... He presented such a balanced view and I certainly learnt a few things. :tu:

If anyone is skipping Series 3 of Britain’s Missing Masterpieces because they got a bit tired of Bendor Grovsenor in black leather whizzing round the country houses of his mum’s chums in earlier series, give it another go

They have tweaked the format, it’s all about works in public ownership and put in historical context, very well

So far I’m enjoying it more than the current series of Fake or Fortune

I have really enjoyed Grayson Perry’s Rites of Passage, thought provoking, moving and ultimately uplifting. This week dealt with death and how different cultures approach both grief and funerals. Will be tuning in for the next instalments featuring births, coming if age and marriage.

I thought Rites of Passage was wonderful but had to go in for a little distraction as MND is currently a little too close to home
