    Was watching Kirstie Allsopp doing something involving renovating furniture found in skips, as well as on sites like freecycle, freegle and gumtree.

    Went to have a look on freegle and the site is overloaded with a little note saying;

    " Sorry if we're a bit slow - Kirstie's sent a lot of people in our direction!"

    Looks like those sites will now be crap for grabbing nice freebies.

    Luther is probably the best drama on TV, such a shame it's finished.
    Alice Morgan is a BAMF as well

    Damn that sorcerer! Twenty gold pieces and Iím wankered on Rohypnol.

    The best thing about it is so far it's been written by the creator throughout. I for one am glad the BBC haven't forced him to bring in other writers, as that's been the demise of so many promising shows in my opinion. And I'm glad they're letting him work at a sensible pace and doing four shows every year or so, so the quality remains high. I can't see any way for them to increase the output without in all likelihood fucking the whole thing up, so I'm glad it's infrequent but bloody good, and long may that continue.

    Horrible Histories marathon on cbbc! \o/ They just did Hostile Environment Training for posh Georgians (the poor used to throw dead cats at them!)

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Programme about world population on BBC 2 is great.

    Also has monkeys firing bananas out of cannons :-)

    A test! For those watching telly who are aware of the adverts.

    Count the number of adverts you hear featuring music from the Tron: Legacy soundtrack.

    Anyone know of a reliable website where I can find out what music was played in a clip show?

    Took me months to identify Gabriella Cilmi's "Sweet About Me" after hearing it on a video clip show like the Justin Lee Collins one or whatever it was.

    Now I wish to find a tune used in a recent Christmas You've Been Framed.

    Thanks in advance :)

    Knowing YBF, it'll probably be on here

    But seriously, I've probably got that ep taped. Was it the Christmas Eve edition?

    @Lukus Cheers. I've got Shazam on my phone, but don't have the tune to play.

    @mal Heh :)

    Not sure which edition it was. The tune was a pop song, female vocals, not slow, I think it was a compilation of "falling down in the snow" clips, but it might have been a different subject.

    It's difficult to describe the song in any more detail, I didn't catch any of the words :(

    Can you whistle the tune? Sometimes soundhound can get it from that.

    @King_Edward Can it? I know Shazam can't; it has to be the original recording. Will research later - I could play part of it on guitar/bass/banjo/harmonica/penny whistle/piano/whatever if that would work!

    You lot are useless! ;)

    It was "Oh Santa!" - Mariah Carey.

    I quite like it :)

    Hmm, not sure if the Dusk til Dawn tv show is good idea. Seems like a carbon copy of the film spread out.

    BBC 2 - 11:20 tonight.

    It's about population statistics, but trust me, its brilliant.

    So, this latest BBC 2 retrospective claiming to show rare and unseen footage is scraping the barrel a little. It started well, but soon enough I saw yet again the same clip of the QI pilot I've seen three times recently. And then, Stella Street - a series that IIRC got three series, and following that, Gareth 'You're a Tiger' Cheeseman. Not sure whether those are meant to be rare, or have been unseen.

    Currently catching up with the new season of Louie. First two episodes are great and I expect the same for the double bill last night which I will catch up on any moment now.

    Exactly, cheapest idea Rodriguez has come up with yet. Fargo is doing it right - taking the tone and setting of the movie and throwing a new (but vaguely similar) story into the mix, with occasional cheeky references to events from the movie (a certain case of money and red frost scraper turned up briefly this week).

    Any Netflix library in the world for a couple of quid a month? Gimme!

    There was another double bill in the US this week?

    Last night I think? The episodes are up on the site that I use to stream them anyway.

    Watchdog. What the fuck was that?! Why did they show us how to work out percentages? Why did they tell us how to work out 10%?

    I didn't need a fucking maths lesson!

    If you like documentaries you should keep an eye out for mud sweat and tractors. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00jwcb1
    There's only 4 of them and they get played occasionally on beeb four. Properly informative with a pleasantly old-school feel to them (interviewing people who were there! using archive footage! incidental music! a pleasing lack of explosions or stupid graphics!).

    @President_Weasel I keep missing those - the description reminds me of one of my favourite books, Akenfield, which documents the changes to farming and a way of life for country dwellers when mechanisation of agriculture took place. It is it just a tractor porn documentary?

    It's not just tractor porn, it's full of brilliant facts like during WW2 the only bread available was the National Loaf (very similar to wholemeal nowadays) because white bread wasted too much of the grain, and the bakers had to sell it the day after it was baked, by law. (I can't remember if it was meant to slice thinner when slightly stale, or if it was just to stop people eating so much)
