Time for some more helpful suggestions of online delights from the world of radio and TV.
Let’s start with a fantastic archival resource across the Tasman. Here you’ll find loads of kiwiana from the tellybox (and cinema). A good start can be made with a Christmas special from “Outrageous Fortune”
From the ridiculous to …. well, a show with a most remarkable set of titles and which is chronicling the fortunes of Ireland. RTE’s “The Week In Politics” sounds dull, but it’s featured high drama during the country’s recent hard times.
Now for some chuckles. A delightful two-hander from the early 1970s called “The Small, Intricate Life of Gerald C Potter” A lightness of touch and a witty script make this a little gem.
Finally some carols. “Caniadaeth y Cysegr” is a long running program from BBC Radio Cymru and highlights the Welsh choral tradition. You might not understand the words, but the sounds are magnificent.
