Fair enough, right? Ergo, Man About the House exists as a sitcom in We've pondered on this issue for a while, and we've decided the best course of action is to pretend Love Thy Neighbour never existed in the first place. In which we learn a that Angela Pleasance is such a perfect choice for the Ghost of Christmas Past it's amazing it took until for someone to think of getting her in; b George C Scott's Scrooge spent his youth cosplaying as Turlough; and c the score is by Nick Bicat, fresh from doing musical honours on his brother Tony's dystopian musical Facelift for Central Television, a symbolism-stuffed tale of an Aryan future society with regulation bondage riot police and dry ice laser light tunnels on loan from Strollers nightclub, which has its stiffo ways shaken up by unruly magician Martin Shaw, who subverts a smitten Sue Jones-Davies by performing old Ali Bongo routines while dressed as Roy Wood.
God bless us, every one. Sky Arts Look out next February for Gibby Haynes's crypto-currency Buttcoin. Anyway, here's a choice cut from those first few years of the '90s when Lynch ruled the world, with this film riding high, Twin Peaks obsessing entire sixth forms to the point of Nikki Kerr being ostracised from the common room after she prematurely revealed the identity of Laura Palmer's killer on stage at the end-of-term show, Chris Isaak everywhere, and even Bobby Vinton's Blue Velvet back in the charts.
That wasn't really anything to do with Lynch, being attached to a Nivea ad, but it all added to the fun. For a couple of years Lynch was the very thing, Jeeves, and you no longer had to hide that Channel 5 video of Eraserhead when girls came round.
Then Peaks went badly off the boil, the follow-up film annoyed more people than it entertained "You can't hear what they're saying! It was inevitable, of course. You can't build a mainstream around a body of work like that without it shaking itself to pieces sooner or later.
Still, it all adds fuel to our thesis that the '90s were culturally hobbled some time in , as all the odd and great music, films and TV of those first few years gave way to a bland diet of Britpop, Braveheart and Ballykissangel. It's an entirely foolish notion with no basis in real events, but as conspiracy theories go these days it's harmless enough, and it keeps us away from the fruit machines.
Incidentally, Shiner replaced Jon Pertwee in the film version of the Navy Lark after the sainted Jon took himself off the project in protest at director Herbert Wilcox dropping Dennis Price from the cast on homophobic grounds, thus craftily dooming the project, hooray.
This is billed as a Rix-Conyers film, the Conyers in question being Darcy rather than Hutton, which is a shame as he might have had some better camera equipment in that box alongside the lion. There's a truly weird bit at the start where an old man in a bath chair is dragged along a pier by a nurse, who he whips with his cane, to a "What the Butler Saw" machine, through which he views the rudimentary animated opening credits.
This is never referred to again. Well, no festive episodes of Runaround, alas, but they have unearthed a pleasing burst of old school variety that seems just right for the season. Dickie Henderson was a huge star in his day, a genial and generous performer who was a fixture on TV screens throughout the sixties and seventies. The production of this is now well catalogued: the GPO lads thought Auden was a tosser and Britten a ponce, one of the cameramen was Jonah Jones, presumably before he started hanging about with Zammo, and the breathless narration was recorded in multiple takes stitched together, which is why classroom recitations always tended to fall apart so embarrassingly.
Or, if you were smart like Gary Hyland, you made a comic thing out of running out of breath and pretended to collapse halfway through, thus winning over the kids to such an extent that the teacher gave up and didn't bother making you recite the rest which is just as well as you'd never bothered to learn it all anyway.
Still, pretty amazing fact, eh? Oh, please yourselves. TCM So, here's the second entry in the long, long series, based not on Conan canon but a stage play, with Moriarty cunningly distracting Holmes from a nefarious plot to steal - what else? There's lashings of hearty dialogue; Watson failing to recognise a shaved Moriarty; a portentous and signed!
Rathbone novices start here. You'll thank us, eventually. But they had hits to spare in those days, hence these two got outings on 24th December and 23rd December respectively. BBC4 This one is especially familiar as we only saw it about six months ago, Christmas But this makes it all worth it, we think. They certainly succeeded too, as this record of their Performance tour illustrates. It's a straight fight between heroic one-man feats of joyful homespun craft and industrially churned-out inhuman pixel-pushing every time, according to folk who've never seen one of those Rankin-Bass Christmas specials or an episode of Charlie Chalk.
But the skeleton scene in this let's not kid ourselves wildly uneven film really is superhuman stuff: one bloke alone in a cupboard for four months, keeping track of the speed, direction and position of each limb of seven skeletons, all the while making sure they match the live action combatants filmed months previously.
Small wonder the special effects Oscar went to ruddy Cleopatra. Horror Then their black and white Alba portable goes all wobbly during an episode of Walker: Texas Ranger and all prosthetic hell breaks loose. Imperial phase Cronenberg, when he still dared to be silly with rubber but no longer had to shoot everything in Canadian motel rooms to save money.
Norman "Death Line" Rossington drives the coach, Dermot "that's right, we are orally men" Kelly mends the boots, and Susan George and Olivia Hussey provide moral, if not athletic, support. Or "Solid Gold Easy Acromegaly" as someone's illegibly written on this Ind Coope beermat we found in our pocket this morning.
And it's that very disease, contracted by members of a sleepy Cornish fishing village after eating contaminated haddock and making them look like Rondo Hatton in those old films, that forms the backdrop for the film of the Mary Whitehouse-troubling enviro-action TV series. Then we get the opening credits over a montage of, well, let's be frank, slurry. They knew how to grab an audience in those days. Still, the bucolic Cornish coast looks nice as Ian Bannen rushes along it in an orange polo neck frowning at unhelpful locals.
A worthy environmental point, made in an entirely undramatic way. Sorry, we were distracted by Ringo Starr not being in it, having been replaced since the first film by Adam Faith. Most of the fictional band's music is by Dave Edmunds, apart from the title track in which Jeff Wayne revisits the winning echo chamber spookiness of Rock On, with added harpsichord, strings and pipe organ.
It's one of the maddest top ten hits of the '70s, and would be equally at home on both Aladdin Sane and Around the World in a Day. It was very much the Get Back of its day. And it's grand stuff, full of smoke-riddled back projection and obvious model work as it is, with a hilarious Holmesian rustic disguise that's perpetrated largely to piss Watson off.
And listen out for the point where Sherlock starts to play Stairway to Heaven on a zither. Then it's off to Universal Pictures and into the present day — well, — to pit the Victorian sleuth against those, er, Nazis. It's the one where Holmes fakes his own death in a Scottish stream at the start, then turns up just as Watson's shifting his old books, dressed as a cockney postman.
Much consternation follows. You'll give yourself a treat acting about all over the place! Plus, there being a war on and everything, we get a scene in a Nazi-themed fairground shooting gallery. BBC Radio 4 Actually social media seems to be behind this programme, as we remember someone earnestly tweeting that when Jim asked the contestants who were unemployed what the job situation was like, they found it very moving as it illustrated that Jim was part of the struggle.
BBC Radio 4 Extra There's richness and variety in the set pieces including a slight return to Disney for traditional cel animation , Emily Blunt is a capable Poppins, especially when she goes all mockney music hall, the score keeps wanting to burst into the theme from Bewitched for some reason, and there's a plum sitting-down role for David Warner. Of course, none of this can change the fact that it's not Mary Poppins , with all the cultural freight that entails, but that can hardly be helped.
Anyway, where were we? Oh yes: when George Martin did the original mix, he was careful not to crush the dynamic range Nothing, honest, he replied, not being a suicidal fool. Stalin would then take the piss out of him for not standing by his comrades. Nice bloke. When this film of Pasternak's book was being shot in fascist Spain, a location scene of crowds singing the Internationale attracted swarms of officers from Franco's "Social Investigation Brigade", fearful that this exhibition could kick off an actual revolt.
Nice blokes. Then when the film finally came out the critics savaged it, being especially nasty about the cinematography if you please. But obviously not on the same level of niceness as the previous blokes. Unless you're watching on a Freeview signal of course, in which case any scenes containing falling snow and there are a few will cause the picture to do that psychedelic MPEG breakup thing. Expect Julie Christie's face to suddenly look like it's covered with miniature Post-It notes with bits of the previous shot of Tom Courtney on them.
I mean I dunno! All very strange. What was a bit odd is that it was based around a list of sketches Victoria chose for a never-made clip show in , but there actually was a clip show in , and this is it. And earlier in the day, a quite nifty Thunderbirds film. Very well. Brian Glover, Pete Postlethwaite, Phil Davis and Mike off Casualty, plus some Americans, shout at each other in a medieval borstal while assorted directors and screenwriters turn up, take one look at the mess, then ask for their names to be removed from the project.
Finally there's a bunch of underlit nothing directed by the people who did the visual effects on Nutty Professor II: the Klumps. Bet you're sorry you asked now. Doylistas can compare and contrast the plot and final troop-rousing speech with original story His Last Bow.
Some fantastic over-the-top deductions in this one "adhering to your boot is a type of clay found only in Sevenoaks! The quality dips quite a bit here, but fun can still be had with the extraordinarily bad acting of some of the locals, and Watson getting pissed on wine and banging on about old Father Brown mysteries.
Now, if any Father Brown fans know of an instance of him referring to Sherlock Holmes Don't call it a comeback. Guys and Dolls is clearly Yes, that'll do. There were a few new shows in that austere line-up, mind, the biggest featuring star of the Christmas Radio Times cover, Frank Spencer. And it contains an early instance of the blockbuster self-awareness that's everywhere these days by featuring Palitoy Star Wars figures as a plot point.
Any theatrically-released motion picture that appears at least once in the television schedules on or within the seven days either side of Christmas Day, with which at least one viewer forms a lasting emotional attachment evocative of said holiday period. Sales areas. The One Foot repeat run has been one of the highlights of the year on BBC4, and was certainly a prolific year for David Renwick as he churned out two full series and an hour-long special, and they were bloody great as well.
Angela Hewitt picks up the Brahms thread from the early evening Prom and launches this Late Night Prom that takes in an unjustly neglected score by Brahms's mentor, Robert Schumann, before observing the composer through the prism of an admirer, Arnold Schoenberg.
He will bring his own insights to an increasingly popular arrangement in which Schoenberg incorporates some surprising 20th-century effects. Don't miss the Gypsy-style finale! Friday 19 August The Chamber Orchestra of Europe's second pairing of Brahms masterworks opens with a work long central to Emanuel Ax's repertoire which he has recorded with tonight's conductor.
Brahms's Second Piano Concerto is even bigger in scale than the First and just as technically demanding. After the interval, the composer's astonishing final symphony, where the balance between expressiveness and iron structural control is most perfectly maintained.
It ends with an imposing set of variations, Brahms's late-Romantic take on the Baroque-style passacaglia, which uses material borrowed from J. Saturday 20 August 7.

Sir Colin Davis tackles a work whose uncompromising nature makes it as great a challenge as anything in the choral repertoire, whether you regard it as a statement of the composer's belief in the spiritual potential of man or his faith in a supreme being.
We may be encircled by gloom but music gives us a chance to throw what Meredith calls "that faint thin line upon the shore". Beethoven is a man at war with himself but a man who is determined to win. One of the world's great orchestras comes to the Proms with a programme of familiar classics that takes in Rachmaninov's bracing swansong, written for Philadelphia. A regular visitor in recent years, Janine Jansen joins the orchestra for the ever-popular Tchaikovsky concerto she recorded recently in fresh and unashamedly romantic style.
These works are bookended by Sibelius's patriotic rallying cry and Ravel's apotheosis of the waltz, a piece whose unstoppable whirling may have been intended as a metaphor for the fate of European civilisation. For this grandest of grand finales there are two very special guests.
Since her first Proms appearance in , Susan Bullock has emerged as Britain's leading dramatic soprano, specialising in what she calls 'the large ladies' of the repertoire. Also featured is a classical music superstar, as popular in the West as in his native China. Lang Lang plays Liszt at his most dazzling on this, his sixth visit to the Proms.
Arne, Parry and Elgar bring down the curtain in traditional fashion. But first the Master of the Queen's Music pays tribute to the Promenaders' fundraising efforts on behalf of the Musicians Benevolent Fund in his new work.

Niquet directs an expanded group of up to 80 musicians to evoke resplendent royal occasions on the River Thames and in Green Park, offering a new slant on London's favourite part pieces. Daniel Barenboim directs his first Beethoven symphony cycle in London — and becomes the first conductor since Henry Wood in to survey all nine symphonies in a single Proms season. His dynamic West—Eastern Divan Orchestra — famously bringing together Arab and Israeli players to form less 'an orchestra for peace' than 'an orchestra against ignorance' — goes far beyond the symbolic in its goal of building bridges through music.
Expect further fireworks as Barenboim pairs Beethoven's revolutionary classics with music by one of today's senior musical figures, the ever-innovative composer-conductor Pierre Boulez, with whom Barenboim first collaborated in the mids. Beethoven - Symphony No. Between these peaks, Boulez's Dialogue de l'ombre double introduces another kind of theatre, the clarinet's electronic double becoming more 'real' than the soloist physically present.
Daniel Barenboim's complete cycle of Beethoven symphonies reaches its mid-point, as he conducts his ensemble of young Arab and Israeli musicians, the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, in a programme that includes both the Pastoral Symphony and that most iconic of all orchestral masterpieces, Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. Alongside, Barenboim programmes two short works by Pierre Boulez - Memoriale for flute and ensemble, and Messagesquisse, which showcases the virtuosity of the orchestra's cello section.
Beethoven Symphony No. Beethoven's ebullient Seventh, famously dubbed 'the apotheosis of dance', was the last piece conducted by Proms founder-conductor Henry Wood. Still the mysteries remain, as befits a testament through which the composer seemingly intended to carve out his unique place in cultural history. The work was one of Bach's last, not completed until , the year before his death in Much of the Mass consisted of music that Bach had composed earlier: the Kyrie and Gloria sections had been composed as a Lutheran Missa in for the Elector of Saxony at Dresden.
The Sanctus dates back to , and the Qui tollis movement was based on a cantata chorus dating from To complete the work, however, in the s Bach composed new sections of the Credo such as Et incarnatus est. The completed Mass was his last major composition. It was unusual for composers working in the Lutheran tradition to compose a Missa tota and Bach's motivations remain a matter of scholarly debate.
The Mass was. The Eighth Symphony, arguably the greatest of them all, remains a huge and glorious challenge. Using a mix of highbrow and vernacular styles, Bernstein created a rich, quintessentially American score that has recently begun to emerge as a modern classic. A celebration of Ivor Novello Remember such time-honoured favourites as 'We'll gather lilacs'?

Shakespeare's influence on the world has been profound, and on no-one more so than Berlioz, who fell in love with the Bard's work in and so began a lifelong passion for all things Shakespearean.
