RE: Photogravure was: Re: SPE and alt update


You will be delighted (!) to know that you CAN watch East-Enders on the
internet along with many other TV programmes here
I too am an avid fan of Radio 4, particularly the comedy programmes on a
Monday night at 18.30, my two favourites being I'm Sorry I haven't A Clue
and Just A Minute.

Cheers from England

      When I visited England the first time it was in the train going 
from Gatwick to Victoria station, about where it is near the old 
Battersea power station, that it came to me that I was in another 
country. I began to understand what Churchill (?) meant by "two 
countries separated by a common language".  I am a regular listener 
to the BBC, once on short wave and now via computer. For the most 
part I understand British humor (and even Scottish humor) but there 
are still references, mostly to people, which are simply beyond me so 
the joke gets lost.
      For those interested check out the BBC at 
http://www.bbc.co.uk   From the home page go to radio and click on 
the UK version, it has a lot more stuff on it. I mostly listen to 
Radio-7 and Radio-4. One can also hear spoken Gaelic and Welsh on 
local stations which are available in addition to the national services.
      Now, if there was only a site where one could watch "East-Enders".
