    For anyone with Netflix - really lovely little 15 minute documentary:

    John Was Trying To Contact Aliens
    https://www.netflix.com/gb/title/81252991

    he was broadcasting great music into outer space too - watched it a few days ago, but I remember seeing Harmonia, Steve Reich, Henry Wolff & Nancy Hennings, Tangerine Dream...

    I've got the Jason King box but I haven't started it yet. I've been working my way through the 'Numbers' sets. Just finished series 5 but it's hard to find 6 cheaply for some reason.

    there's a 3 episode Latin Music series on BBC4 with Huey Morgan at the moment. Watched first episode on Brazil, with interviews with Joyce, Gilberto Gil and Arnaldo Baptiste from Os Mutantes

    next two are Cuba and Puerto Rico i think...

    This was a nice watch, half-hour programme about a teenager who'd grown up in care discovering the Northern Soul scene

    The new RAMBO and TERMINATOR are irrelevant crap.

    Sahsiyet - a brilliant Turkish crime/drama series from 2018. Definitely the best crime series I have watched jn ages (and I have watched many). Witty, fast, dramatic, excellent in every aspect. Highly recommended

    Giri / Haji - watched the first two episodes so far, excellent stuff, nice visuals, etc - crime thriller set in London and Tokyo.

    also legal comedy series Defending The Guilty is great.


    Also am watching an enjoyable but slightly naff Spanish heist series, think it's from a couple of years ago: Money Heist (originally La Casa De Papel in Spanish). Thought it was only three parts and was pleased to see something short on Netflix, but the "parts" turned out to be three series

    JOKER

    Film of the year for me. Almost it's own hybrid of character study, social commentary and art film. Exactly what I look for nowadays. Even the nods to Taxi driver, French connection, Network, Dog day afternoon and Nolan's Joker were subtle and suggestive and not the usual cute easter eggs. More please!

    "The swinging Portuguese coast; where the action is" That's going on my list of things I must see, at any cost.

    Very much enjoyed watching the 1968 film "Hammerhead" for the first time last night - after having had the excellent soundtrack (by David Whittaker) for over 10 years now.

    Featuring Diana Dors and a host of supporting brit actors seemingly drawn from 60s/70s sit-coms (Father Dear Father, It Ain't Half Hot Mum) it's a fun but odd watch.

    The 3 best sequences feature an "art" happening at the Roundhouse, the character "Ivory" dancing round her yacht cabin to an impossibly groovy track on her reel to reel... (sadly this piece is not on the OST Lp) and Judy Geeson miming the Madeline Bell sung title theme...

    This trailer gives the flavour:

    THE SISTERS BROTHERS

    Neo-rustic western/death rite drama. 4 out of 5 stars for me.
