So, yesterday (8th October 2017) was its 8 year anniversary. Anyone else still watch it ? Anyone else going to watch it again soon ? I know I am, it always sets me up for the autumn run towards Christmas :)

Wow. 8 years! I actually find it really inspiring to watch (despite the outcome!) and still watch it on every now and then. As it's the anniversary, I think I may be due for another viewing :)

Unfortunately, I could only find a low res version. I wish I could get it in nicer quality HD or that the beeb would put it on Netflix.

I still watch it every now and again. It's still really good! It's probably getting around to that time again...

I never realised that Uncle Clive had such a temper, though! Blimey! :o

On the plus side, all of the ladies dressed in 80s clothes make me feel kind of funny, like when we used to climb the rope in gym class. :)

I haven't watched it for a good few years, so yeah, perhaps time to visit it again :)

Yeah, still good. :)

According to the current Wikipedia entry, Uncle Clive thinks, "It was a travesty of the truth. It just had no bearing on the truth. It was terrible."

I have it on good authority from someone who was taught by Steve Furber that the chord-cutting bit is accurate, though.
