I would put the standard Test Card 4 on and tell everyone to go down the pub.

Strictly Come Dancing,
Have I got News for You. with Boris in the chair,
a Duffy concert,
a few Bilkos,
"It's a Wonderful Life",
an interview with Flavia Razz ,
an episode or two from the original "Untouchables" and "StarTrek" series,
and "The Forbidden Planet" would do me...

Actually, SantaFF has just given me a reason not to go to the pub - wall to wall Bilko on TV.

Done!

I hope she does.. I'm looking forward to the Christmas show. I always really miss SCD when it finishes.

Not that much appeals to me on TV lately ( similar to the music on Radio 2 in fact..) so I just treated myself to some Ebay DVD set bargains...

All the episodes of "The Untouchables" series 1, 2 and 3.. ( I love the old gangster stuff.. Razz )

"Little Caesar" - Edward G. Robinson.. another film hero of mine..

All the Bilko shows! 143 I think it is...

and, All the "Casey Jones" TV shows too... well, I would wouldn't I? Laughing

Who need's a colour TV?

I'd have no soaps on for a start.

Repeats of 'Police Squad!' in memory of Leslie Nielsen
A decent music documentary (say, an update of 'Genesis: A History' or Prog Britannia)
Queen's Christmas Concert 1975 or the Genesis 1980 concert special
Highlights of the High Voltage festival 2010 (for Transatlantic and Steve Hackett - yes, I am biased)
The Line The Cross & The Curve followed by a brand new interview with Kate Bush (BREAKING NEWS; A squadron of pigs were seen flying over the city of Wakefield...)
The entire Live At Hammersmith Odeon concert by above (specially remastered by Steve Wilson - see above).

Yep - all of them back-to-back starting this evening and playing until the last one finishes. That might even keep me away from the pub!
