History: BBC – The Great War – E03/26 – We Must Hack Our Way Through

The Inquiring Mind

From Wikipedia

The Great War is a 26-episode documentary series from 1964 on the First World War. The documentary was a co-production of the Imperial War Museum, the British Broadcasting Corporation, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and the Australian Broadcasting Commission. The narrator was Michael Redgrave, with readings by Marius Goring, Ralph Richardson, Cyril Luckham, Sebastian Shaw and Emlyn Williams. Each episode is c.40 minutes long.

In August 1963, at the suggestion of Alasdair Milne, producer of the BBC’s current affairs programme Tonight, the BBC resolved to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War with a big television project.

Planning for the next Accession and Coronation

The Constitution Unit Blog

robert.hazell.350x350com.google.Chrome.j5urj9Robert Hazell and Bob Morris have been examining the accession and coronation oaths the Queen’s successor will have to take once her reign comes to an end.

But because so much has to be decided quickly, within 24 hours of the Queen’s death, it is important to spend time now considering the issues that will arise, before they have to be dealt with in the rush of a new reign.

Green Jihad

Five California thieves with the animal rights group Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) have been charged and face felony sentences in connection with the theft of five pigs from a farm operated by Smithfield Foods in Beaver, Utah Deseret News reports.

What is significant is that Deseret News also points out that the founder of DxE, Wayne Hansen Hsiung, is among the accused in which he was arrested twice before for livestock thefts from farms in North Carolina and San Francisco. However, DxE states they are being persecuted for exposing corporate misconduct, saying that the meat industry doesn’t want people to see how their food is produced. This despite the fact that the nihilists trespassed on private property and conducted a theft of animals owned by the company who owns and operates the Utah farm.

What is hilarious and unreal at the same time, police found out who was responsible for…

Promises – Baby it’s you


Although it reached #2 thanks to massive enthusiasm from Countdown, “Baby It’s You” was the sole significant hit for this Californian outfit who oddly had no hits at home. (The fact they were originally signed to EMI in Holland probably had something to do with that). Fronted by siblings Leslie Maria Knauer and Jed Knauer and also featuring a third sibling Benny, the band split after follow up singles bombed and Leslie apparently decided the band should go punk!
