    'Moonraker' (1979)

    On ITV4 right now.

    Past peak Bond but still better than any of them that came after.

    Some good lines - 'Look after Mr Bond. See that he comes to some harm.'

    The g-force thing he nearly gets killed in is just a slightly jazzed-up motorcycle sidecar. I never noticed that before and I've seen this many, many times - including at the pictures when it first came out.

    Default Now Screening - What Are You Watching Right Now?

    One of my guilty pleasures as a man of a certain age is Springwatch. My daughter decided to join me and we watched a couple of episodes, and I think she is now as much of a geeky fan as I am. I then decided to show her some YouTube clips of Michaela Strachan on “Hit Man and Her” from the early 1990’s…. (Now that programme was really a guilty pleasure back then, but not going to discuss that with my 15 year old daughter!)

    She was quite flabbergasted by “Hit Man and Her” - I don’t think she could grasp the concept, and to be honest, over 30 years later, neither can I! Suffice to say, she will happily watch Michaela on Springwatch, but watching her on Hit Man and Her…. Er, no.

    Then it got even more surreal - Jim Moir (Vic Reeves to you and I) was a judge on some sort of wildlife award on the show. I was going to show her some Reeves & Mortimer clips, (“Dove from Above”, anyone?) but I decided against it - I know she knows the Childline phone number off by heart….

    No, I think your daughter should see why the British music industry is the envy of the world, so here you go:

    I just dropped in, to see what condition my condition was in

    T/T: Inspire Monarch, X200 tonearm, Ortofon Quintet Blue. Phono: Project Tube Box CD: Marantz CD6006 (UK Edition); Amp: Musical Fidelity A5 Integrated.
    Speakers: Zu Omen Def, REL T9i subwoofer. Cables: Atlas Equator interconnects, Atlas Hyper 3.0 speaker cables

    T'other system:
    Echo Dot, Amptastic Mini One,Arcam A75 integrated, Celestion 5's, BK XLS-200 DF

    A/V:
    LG 55" OLED, Panasonic Blu Ray, Sony a/v amp, MA Radius speakers, REL Storm sub

    Forget the past, it's gone. And don't worry about the future, it doesn't exist. There is only NOW.

    Those were the days - when celebrity panel shows had celebrities you'd actually heard of.
