I'll be watching this excellent series (ok I already saw S1 & 2, but S3-5 is pretty "new" to me):

It's never enough...

Note the (damaged) P-51 (3:00) and the map (6:50). 😯

I watched a few episodes of mini-series "Chernobyl" - absolute "horror", because even though it is a "dramatisation" of events, you do know most of it happened for real... :1f631:  :'(

That looks really horrible, @Ulrich, and it better be too, because we humans are so easy to anaesthetise about stuff like this.  By the way, I read recently that one of the reasons Germany is a world leader in getting their population on renewable energy sources is because of the public backlash in Germany about nuclear power, and citizens deciding they wanted solar, wind etc, not a nuclear future.  Well done to your citizens - I wish Australians were this proactive on the scale German citizens were.  We still have dumbass politicians discussing building nuclear reactors, and subsidising the mining and burning of coal with our tax money, when there's enough solar energy here to run us many times over, if only we use the available technology to capture it.  (This message is brought to you by an off-grid household running on solar and batteries for electricity, passive solar design for the majority of home heating and cooling, an average of two nights a week in winter with the wood fire on, which also backup heats the solar rooftop hot water, pedestal and ceiling fans to keep air moving in summer heatwaves, and other things like this - all done on an average building budget, showing that anyone with an average budget can get off non-renewables for running their buildings.)

And speaking of horrible, did you ever watch this?  I wish it was compulsory viewing for all politicians (and all voters, to be fair).

Gosh I love the evolution of technology that allows one to stream concerts live to a big screen.
Currently watching The Cure live in Helsinki 2019.  ...very good footage, and awesome performance...

Ooooh, thanks for the link!  :cool

We got Vera Season 10 for Christmas and are about to binge, I suspect.  Also we're watching the final episodes of Sylvester McCoy's classic Dr Who episodes on the way through the entire classic series.  Currently we have a treat - an old Jon Pertwee story called Invasion of the Dinosaurs that we couldn't get hold of before - the actual dinosaurs are beyond ridiculous, but I've always liked Jon Pertwee's Dr Who and he got a lot of good stories.  We also re-watched Listen from Peter Capaldi's era; excellent story...
