DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
Gon GEM at 10.45 this morning. People are always whingeing about how there isn’t enough children’s programming (rubbish) – so what’s wrong with this?
Better than Grandpa in my Pocket over on ABC2, which apparently is meant to be a kids’ show. Grandpa in my EE, it’s going to be hard to go past Carry On Screaming! Pocket . . . I don’t think so. Technically Saturdays on freeto-air should be your favourite time of the week. New episodes of Doc Martin, Agatha Christie of unknown provenance, and I mean, why wouldn’t you spend four hours of your life watching Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers? Unless the Lord of the Rings episode of Four Weddings gave you all the Gollum you could take. Does three hours and 40 minutes seem like enough time to you? Its on GO! so there are ads, and I just hope they don’t find themselves eating into Eclipse Music TV.
And obviously there’s 7Mate, doing the right thing by everyone all week and running a festival of Bond. Some of that architecture – amazing. And I’m not talking about Pussy Galore’s foundation garments
