Mini Waffle On about Lack of Sports on Terrestrial TV.

Another mini waffle for you and in this edition we talk about the lack of sports on terrestrial TV.  The BBC has recently lost F1 to Sky Sports, another in a long list of sports standard TV stations have lost to the bigger cable channels. If you can afford Sky then great but a lot of people can;t afford to splash and so are missing out on watching great sports for free. Cricket is lost, the majority of football games are lost and as mentioned F1 is lost but and thank goodness for a but, F1 has been partly saved by a new venture called F1 in Pubs  in which Meds attended the Australian race  in Birmingham. So join Meds and Kell as they have  a chat about what they miss and what could be done for sports on TV.

For more information of F1 in pubs click the link above it follow them on twitter @F1inPubs or on Facebook just search for F1 in Pubs

Porridge

Porridge

Written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais Porridge notched up 18 episodes, two Christmas specials and a film and never have a bad patch. Starting with the pilot 'Prisoner and Escort' in April 1973 Porridge boosted character actor Ronnie Barker out of the role of sketch comedian and into the world as a serious comedy actor. Joined by the talents of Richard Beckinsale, Fulton Mackay and Brian Wilde Porridge entertained the British public for four years.

Set in the fictional Slade prison in Cumberland Norman Stanley Fletcher is sentenced to five years. He is joined by first time criminal Leonard Godber and the two are paired off together in a cell much to Fletchers annoyance. Slowly the two become good friends and Godber learns that little victories are what can keep a man sane in prison. Keeping an eye on the inmates is ex drill sergeant Mr Mackay who rules the block with a rod of iron. Second to Mackay is the ever pondering Mr Barrowclough who Fletcher easily wraps round his finger.

Join Meds and Kell for an hour long chat all about this classic 70's comedy, and listen at the end of the podcast for some promos of other podcasts that you may find interesting.
