Thank you, will ask my son if he would like to write in for a badge.

ReturnOfTheLindtOverload

Good for you. I hate it when people who have not helped the people being abused suddenly spring into activity at this point and insist that attendance and flowers are a must. Attendance and flowers and indeed the interference of these now-interferers would have been of some use in the past, during the abuse.

tafkas: Quite an impressive rant considering Jurassic Park was released as a PG in 1993, and the 12A certificate was first used for The Bourne Identity in 2002. Well you learn something every day, always thought 12A had come about because of jurassic park, well I still think 12A is a load of crap, and as I remember it Spielberg did put pressure on the BBFC to release it as a PG.

Quite an impressive rant considering Jurassic Park was released as a PG in 1993, and the 12A certificate was first used for The Bourne Identity in 2002.

ws007

the BBFC became a joke when they caved into spielberg over jurassic park and invented the 12A certificate.

American free TV programs are not great. All the quality programs that come over here are usually on the pay channels over there.

trampjuice

There is free digital HD freeview in the US since 2009 but you can also get a satellite dish and get even more free US channels and cheaper than cable subscriptions. Obviously funded by adverts.

splender

6.9 is always very good approximately, if you understands how IMDB ratings work. The 1000th all time top film as voted by viewers has a rating of 7.3. If you call these arbitrarily best or outstandibg for 1000 best films ever as voted on IMDB. This is 6.9, which seems to be very good. There are nearly half a million movies on the IMDB database, in case you didn't know what 1000th means with 7.3 rating. Or, simply, ask yourself in a 180 degree flip of your question:- Since when can you call a 6.9 rating not a 'very good'?

I must admit that I use the download by PID route which is more long winded but sidesteps issues with programme searches etc. PID is easily obtained from going to the programme you want in iplayer (web) and looking in the web address.

On checking, as I said Get_iplayer has lost functionality and will NOT allow you to download boxset etc. Anything broadcast in the last 30 days does still work ...... if you can find it !!! :)

Huawei_or_my_way

All, Nice to be proved wrong !!! :) Last time I used it there had been some changes by the BBC that reduced the functionality. It was some tiime ago !!! Thanks for the update.

PhilK

Me too not a fan personally, although Tom Baker was brilliant - but the weeping angels were superb. Chris Ecclestone episode where he meets the last Dalek was a perfect example of the bloke playing the Doctor being superb, the bloke doing dalek voice being good, and the rest more wooden than a shed.

Mountain film free on BBC iPlayer!
jasee

Agreed generally. Usually these films, in particular those featuring downhill skiing are highly self indulgent and feature the worst sort of headbanging music and Tibetan pipes and drums! For instance 'Into the mind' and 'All I can'

gholt

I'm glad some people have enjoyed watching this film. Posted this deal as this is a film (not a program) and to make people aware it is available on the i Player (usual in my experience for films and easily missed). As for licence fee's meaning its not "free": the vast majority of people have a TV licence so I'm just advising how to get the maximum out of it. That said a crazy number of people will pay a lot more and have Sky or a similar subscription service making the licence fee seem a pittance!

kamenitzabrit: Whatever happened to our own home produced films by the likes of Ealing studios, and featuring stars such as Albert Finney ? We do have things like Aardman Animations to fly the flag for us, but sadly our great British film industry has all but vanished. Will the Arabic film industry go the same way, or is there not going to be the obvious competition form Hollywood which our English language industry faced ? The UK film industry is huge, employing 2m people and growing by 5% pa. Albert Finney's last film was British made Skyfall in 2012. He's in his 80's now so probably not as active as once was.

I did not know that this was a collaboration between the two of them. Will check it out, although I have never been able to get into Zappa - except 'My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama' of course.

Yes He was a genius and very original. Ry cooder was also mentioned together with Zappa by Don's biographer in the programme. This still remains my Fave Zappa Album and track for all time.It's the original mix and Beefheart is in great form on this.

Quartermass

There's no doubt he was an extremely talented guy. I found it weird he was known for odd psychedlic tinged music as well as R&B albums that sound like Howlin' Wolf. As well as being an accomplished musician, he was a successful painter too. The amazing Ry Cooder played on some of his stuff as well.

myusernamehasgone234

So sorry to hear your son never got a badge for his hard work and effort. Perhaps he could be encouraged to try again for another one. His letter may have gone astray. My sons did, it was returned to sender shredded into bits, along with the photo he sent in. Sadly he didn’t bother sending it again as he already had on type.

Sp0oner

I've not seen it mentioned in the replies but you aren't guaranteed to get a badge, not everyone who applies does. My Son did a lovely letter about the environment and current issues etc and fulfilled all the criteria but never got a badge. It's a bit disheartening for a child when they put a lot of effort into something and then don't get the badge.
