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:
