Fwd: If you are look for a television with simple need, the UN40EH6000 by Samsung is a general television, or perhaps use it as a monitor for your consoles or PC.

David Fishwick is so fed up with the way that the banks are treating people he's decided to open his own tiny bank to serve his local community in Burnley and help the people the banks have turned down. Dave's plan is to open an old fashioned bank and be a hands-on bank manager giving good rates to borrowers and savers alike. Instead of bankers' bonuses, Dave plans for any profits to go to local charities, but he soon discovers that this simple plan is not as straightforward as he thought it would be. - Halil from Bookmarklet

BBC Four - Henry VIII: Patron or Plunderer?, Episode 1
King Henry VIII had a fascinating and enlightening relationship with art. He came to the throne as the Renaissance swept across Europe, yet England's new king never lost sight of the medieval chivalry of his forefathers. In the first of a two-part documentary, architectural historian Jonathan Foyle looks at the palaces, tapestries, music and paintings created in Henry's name and questions whether the art he commissioned compensates for the religious treasures he would come to destroy. - Halil from Bookmarklet

Dead Man's Shoes, Today 11:20pm - 1:05am Film4
Paddy Considine plays a tortured ex-army man who returns to the rural Midlands village of his youth to take revenge on a drugs gang who used and abused his younger, mentally disabled brother (Toby Kebbell). With many of the cast being non-actors and much of the dialogue improvised, there's a strong sense of realism that makes the violence portrayed so much more horrific. - Halil from Bookmarklet
A really gritty film, worth watching once. - Halil

Vampire Diaries Season 4: Not Renewed, Yet
EP Kevin Williamson has previously spoiled the anticipation of not only a fourth season, but six. “We’re still on track. It’s going to end where we always said we were going to end. And we’re doing it all within the right time. We said, ‘This is going to happen in Season Two, and this will happen in Season Three.’ And so we know where we’re headed at the end of the season to launch our fourth season. We could wrap this thing up in six, but we have no problem pacing ourselves. We can also extend it with no problems, but we know that if we needed an endgame by, say, Season Six, we could land.” - Halil from Bookmarklet
I'm hoping they get their six - this show has been such an indulgently fun roller-coaster to watch. - Jennifer Dittrich
I think it's one of the best vamp dramas so far, the story line is completely original and the characters are great, they aren't 2-D, they have all developed in some way throughout the series. Intentionally avoiding saying anything revealing, for anyone who hasn't watched it yet. - Halil

Scots adventurer Mark Beaumont (The Man who Cycled the Americas) joins polar veteran Jock Wishart on an expedition to row a boat to the 1996 north magnetic pole, a point only ever reached across solid ice. In their tiny boat, the six-man team navigate some of the world's most remote seaways, taking on fast-flowing sea ice that could crush their boat and roaming polar bears. Nobody has ever rowed so far into the Canadian high Arctic - a first in the world of exploration and adventure, only made possible by the dramatic retreat of arctic sea ice in recent decades. - Halil from Bookmarklet

Neeson recently told reporters he had tucked in alongside other cast members after Carnahan asked for wolf stew to be prepared on set to help them get into character. "It was very gamey," said the Oscar-nominated actor. "But I'm Irish, so I'm used to odd stews. I can take it. Just throw a lot of carrots and onions in there and I'll call it dinner." Unlike some colleagues who were apparently sick, Neeson said that he had been back for seconds. - Halil from Bookmarklet
Peta also criticised Carnahan for allegedly ordering wolf carcasses from a trapper for use in the film. "Many animals caught in traps chew off their own limbs in order to escape," said spokeswoman Jane Dollinger. "These animals go on to die of gangrene or other secondary infections, sometimes leaving nursing puppies abandoned to fend for themselves." - Halil

If critics had their way, we'd have no TV/films/theatre/books etc and we'd all be sitting at home knitting scarf's and jumpers for each other's birthdays! That's the reason so many great shows were cancelled before their time! :(

It's probably up the critics to decide. If the show has only a few million watchers instead of tens of millions they are expecting, then it will get the axe. No matter how good or praised it is. - Jemm

The Last Train (Cruel Earth in Canada and America) is a British six-part post-apocalyptic television drama serial first broadcast on the ITV network in 1999. It has since been repeated on ITV2 in 1999/2001 and on numerous occasions on the UK Sci-Fi Channel. The serial was written by Matthew Graham and produced for ITV by Granada Television. In the United States, the Fox Network purchased the rights to produce a new version of the series soon after its original UK transmission. Retitled The Ark, the idea did not progress beyond the pilot stage.[citation needed] As of October 2010, the series has not been released on DVD or any other format, and has never played in the USA at all. - Halil from Bookmarklet

Sir Peter Alexander Ustinov CBE ( /ˈjuːstɪnɒf/ or /ˈuːstɪnɒf/;[1] 16 April 1921 – 28 March 2004) was an English actor, writer and dramatist. He was also renowned as a filmmaker, theatre and opera director, stage designer, author, screenwriter, comedian, humourist, newspaper and magazine columnist, radio broadcaster and television presenter. A noted wit and raconteur, he was, for much of his career, a fixture on television talk shows and lecture circuits, as well as a respected intellectual and diplomat who, in addition to his various academic posts, served as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF and President of the World Federalist Movement. Ustinov was the winner of numerous awards over his life, including Academy Awards, Emmy Awards, Golden Globes and BAFTA Awards, as well the recipient of governmental honours from, amongst others, the United Kingdom, France and Germany.

It might not of been brilliant, but I don't think it was bad or boring. Why so quick to judge from just one episode? I thought Outcast was OK, not great, but it was getting interesting, before it was cancelled. The problem writers have these days is trying to be innovative and original, but that's pretty hard to do when most of its been done. So they just try to re-write oldies, with new twists etc, again this isn't easy to do either. - Halil

Grow Your Own Drugs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Grow Your Own Drugs is a hit British television documentary series, first broadcast on BBC Two, exploring the many remedies which can be provided by plants. James Wong, an ethnobotanist, presents the series and takes the view that people should start making their own remedies in order to save money and feel healthier plus providing simple remedies to everyday ailments. Wong tries out his remedies on members of the public in order to demonstrate the beneficial effects of natural remedies, adding appropriate safety warnings. He is careful to stress that viewers should always seek medical advice before trying natural medicines, and in discussing the outcomes of treatment always states "It's not a clinical trial..." and acknowledges that results might be attributed to a placebo effect. - Halil from Bookmarklet

Silent Running is a 1972 environmentally themed science fiction film starring Bruce Dern and directed by Douglas Trumbull,[1] who had previously worked as a special effects supervisor on such science fiction films as 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Andromeda Strain. ~ Silent Running depicts a future in which all plant life on Earth has been made extinct. Only a few specimens have been preserved in enormous, greenhouse-like geodesic domes attached to a fleet of American Airlines space freighters, just outside the orbit of Saturn. Freeman Lowell (Bruce Dern), one of four crewmen aboard the Valley Forge, is the resident botanist and ecologist who preserves the forests for their eventual return to Earth and the reforestation of the planet. Lowell spends most of his time in the forests, cultivating the plant and animal life.[2] - Halil from Bookmarklet
