Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

THOSE WHO KILL - ITV 3

Date: 24th February 2012

THOSE WHO KILL – ITV 3

What is it about these Swedish and Danish Programmes which makes them so good and gripping.

In the past I avoided programmes with subtitles. These days I often use subtitles on British and American programmes because either the accents are too broad and/or the speech is garbled and fast. (I’ve had this complaint for years and am meeting more and more folk who make the same complaint. Those involved in a production, the actors/presenters, director, editor etc. are so used to the script they seem to forget that the viewing audience only has one shot at hearing the dialogue. I’ve watched programmes with my son – who speaks very quickly – and even he doesn’t get all the dialogue so there’s nothing wrong with my hearing)

But back to these Scandinavian made Crime programmes. They are excellent and the characters so credible. Last night’s ‘Those who Kill’ was incredibly gripping and had many interesting twists and turns. How anyone ever thinks up the storyline is quite beyond me.

The only problem with these programmes is that, having seen the denoument, one rarely wants to watch again. I do hope we get some more Wallander – the Swedish version not the English one with Kevin Branagh.

The other problem is that I can no longer catch up with the ironing whilst watching the Television – look down for a moment and you may miss a vital piece of dialogue – look away and it could be a burnt hand!!!

Have a good weekend. Jan
