  1. Scrappers BBC1

    Way Off Topic
    Did anyone watch this last Friday night? The blurb on the planner sounds comical. I didn't know about it until M-i-L phoned on Saturday. We'll have to watch the rest as the owners have lived next door for 22 years. We saw the film crew outside a few times months ago and thought nothing of it.

    Perhaps I've missed a thread, or else it is not of great interest, but who else has seen the black 156 with tan leather in the "Case Histories" series on BBC 1 on Sunday evenings? I'm not clever enough to determine what model it is but am sure someone on here will quickly enlighten me. Whilst...

    Way Off Topic
    Whilst watching the Antiques Roadshow just now, my best mate's Dad was one of two people being interviewed about some items they had brought to the show. I just exclaimed "That's Tim" - I had no idea that he was going to be on! Have you ever spotted someone you know on the electric idiot box?
  6. Sinking of the Concordia

    Way Off Topic
    Is on Channel 4 now (Has half an hour left to run). They're showing shocking scenes of the bridge, neither the captain nor his staff seem to have a clue, there does not seem to have been any sort of standard procedure or drill.

    General Alfa Discussion
    After all the Alfa spotting on Zen, the 2nd part of the latest Silent Witness episode last night featured an Alfa 159, powering into a farm yard. This car has appeared in previous episodes too - both of the male characters have had a go at driving it, so it must be the company "hack" :)...
