    Thanks for that Mike.

    But its funny where posts lead you.

    After downloading the Testcard I looked around the BBC Classic site
    here

    Noticed the 'Tripods' section
    here

    Went and looked at the picture section and found a lovely Tripods Wallpaper

    Here's the smallest version 640x480:-


    EDIT - I think Ken would like this.

    Back to LOM Series 2.

    There is no episode 3 on BBC 1 (as already reported) because of Football.

    It seems that BBC4 are going to show Episode 1 of SERIES 1 - in order not to get two episodes ahead (would have been Epi. 4 tonight) - and it would appear they think they should give late-comers to the series a chance to see the very first episode again.

    Cheers, daveac

    EDIT:-

    Just looked again :-

    here

    And I'm sure that's different.

    It looks like they are showing Episode 1 Series 2

    They have either updated this or I miss read it.

    Cheers, daveac

    How nice of BBC4. They seem (IMO) to be falling into the US TV act of showing a few episodes and then taking a week (or five) off. I know, I know: it's only one week, but mid-season breaks are a pet peeve of mine (right after 20 minutes of commercial breaks during an hour program).

    by the way: how many episodes are there in the second series? has that been announced?

    See my corrected post above.

    As to the number of episodes I think it's 8 again.

    I have a Youtube habit and I lack a TV.

    However, when I was a kid in the 70's we had kids programmes that were a delightful mix of comfort and simplicity.

    One such was Camberwick Green. The start-up sequence was always the same, where the character to be followed was introduced via a musical box (stay with me):

    Camberwick Green

    In the typical BBC style they did a Life on Mars version:

    Sam's Green

    Just in case the non Brit contingent missed it...

    (Brought tears to my eyes heh)

    FYI...Life on Mars II starts tonight on BBC Canada.

    It's in a 90 minute time slot so even though there will be ad breaks the show itself will be unedited.

    The new Robin Hood only runs about 45 minutes so it won't be that hacked up. It's the shows that run nearly a full hour without commercials (like Spooks and Life on Mars) that really run in to trouble.

    yeah, I couldn't believe how much I missed from the first season of Spooks when I first saw it on A&E in the US (as MI-5). I since have seen it on DVD and there was A LOT of explanation that I missed.

    What's the story on Life on Mars? Three new eps and then a break or something?

    When my wife and I were watching ep. 3, she asked if Liz White was pregnant. I hadn't heard anything, but she was wearing more loose fitting stuff.

    I'm going "Full Circle" and putting my avatar back to what it was when I first joined. :)

    Just a bump. How many more to go now? Ep 6 last night some great comedy moments with Gene ranting. Really liked Ep 5 I thought it worked very well.
