Hey there folks - my Narnia Fever continues unabated.
Coming out of London is the show Newsnight Review in which every Friday Night the various Great and the Good of the 'U.K. Culture World' come together to review that weeks' media. This is a nice idea - hey they even have poets on! But the thing is the show is only 30 minutes long and they review 4 or 5 different events so the amount of time spent on any item is so short the show is basically either a love fest or cheesy shouting match.
Nothing is learned.
It's more the idea that there is something out there called culture that is communicated rather than any real 'valuable' thing being created.
Anyhew, last week I saw that they were reviewing The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. So for those of you who missed the show, (hosted by Kirsty Wark with guests Paul Morley, Ian Rankin, Sarah Churchwell and Deborah Bull), I snapped a few pics with my digital camera. They are presented below for your edification and delight, (I like the one with the Giant Beaver looking over their shoulder).
p.s.: while looking up info on Kirsty Wark I found this site. This guy deserves his own post, or something...
