# hallelujah, hallelujah. .. # you'll like this, you'll like it # not a lot, not a lot. you can go to a party and say to somebody, "have you seen this trick?" and they will say to you, even if you've just done it averagely well, they will say, "how did you do that?" and you grow a little. i did not grow far! come on, you'll like this. not a lot. this is the queen with the corner bend.
all you have got to do is keep your eye on the queen. there it is, with the corner bend. these two, it does not matter what you do. there is the three. so where is the queen, for £10? there. certainly, if you like. £10. that's it, £10, and it's a black three. # so let the happy times begin, cos mrs merton is here...# ladies and gentlemen, please welcome debbie mcgee! but what first, debbie, attracted you to the millionaire, paul daniels? i once saw david copperfield and he made the statue of liberty disappear. i've seen your paul do the same thing with the eight of clubs. if on earth, you're ugly, in heaven, you'll be beautiful. which is great news for that girl there in the front. scorchio!

you didn't want to go in the water. you just don't know what you are missing. # do you remember the 21st of september? # love was changing the minds of pretenders # # while chasing the clouds away... # come on, children, come on # the mirror stares you in the face and says, # "baby, uh, uh, it don't work" #

# do me a favour, open the door and let them in... what do you think i am? now look here, my good woman! i couldn't go on dropping my trousers, couldn't go on repeating myself forever. i wasjust repeating myself in farce, coming in the same doors, doing the same jokes. he's pinched me braces! i began looking around for something else to do. brian rix! by sheer miracle, i saw the advertisement for secretary—general of mencap in the guardian one day, applied for the job like anyone else, and eventually, after a great deal of doubt on behalf of the society, i actually got the job. doctor henryj heimlich, a leading specialist in oesophagus surgery, has devised a simple first aid procedure,
the heimlich manoeuvre, which has proven successful in saving the lives of choking victims. # i'm running down the road trying to loosen my load. # i got seven women on my mind. # four that wanna own me. # two that wanna stone me. # 0ne says she's a friend of mine. # you can't hide your lying eyes...# we enjoyed what we were doing, we were serious about our work and the songs and about where we wanted to take the band. but along the way we really rocked and had a good time. # and still those voices are calling from far away. # wake you up in the middle of the night, just to hear them say...# when you have a record like hotel california, you join a fraternity were only a few people who understand what it is like to have a mega record. and then you need to get your head around how to make a record after that. # living it up at
the hotel california. # what a nice surprise, bring your alibis...# i have the most stylish corner of the filthy storeroom out back. that and one plate of beans, $10 a day. yeah, things do get hard when you find out you are on the run. there's a dry wash south of town, pick me up there. there may be another attempt on his life.
i'll be back in the morning with my people. thank you, doctor. knowing thrush as we do they're going to keep after it. well, fortunately, dr true anticipated that. he said his enemies would have to hunt down the four winds to find his formula. and one more word. daughter. he's flying east. 2,000 miles approximately. there's an envelope with the logo of one of moslov air, one of the few airlines flying into dagestan. # take good care of my baby...# i think that the things i look back on with pride are some of the songs. i still love take good care of my baby, run to him, and the night has a thousand eyes. # remember, when you tell those little white lies. # that the night has a thousand eyes. # when a group has an instant hit, it is very nice for them, because they don't need to worry
about selling records, and for disc jockeys, because they know immediately to play it. ladies and gentlemen, the brand—new one, straight in at 12. # she ain't got no money. # her clothes are kinda funny. # her hair is kinda wild and free. # oh, but love grows where my rosemary goes. # and nobody knows but me...# # oh, oh i'm trapped. # like a fool i'm in a cage. # i can't get out. # you see i'm trapped. # can't you see i'm so confused ? # i can't get out. # you see i'm trapped. # like a fool i'm in a cage i can't get out.
# you see i'm trapped. # can't you see i'm so confused? # i can't get out #. i wanted to make a glittery, disco record. and i wanted to work with stock, aitken, and waterman. # i, get to know your name #. i am so lucky to have that, i realise it now, as my knees get stiff and my teeth are falling out, you know what i mean? # you spin me right round, baby, right round # # like a record, baby, right round, round, round #. i am glad i did something that has gone down in history. i look down on him because i am upper—class. i looked up to him because he is upper—class. but i look down on him because he is lower class. i am middle—class. i know my place. there you go, four candles. no, fork handles. there you are. four candles. no, fork handles. no, handles for forks. i didn't make this story up. i read it in an old reader's digest in between an article called having fun with a hernia, and a story about a woman who brought up a family of four
with one hand while waiting for directory enquiries. i said to her, "excuse me". am i doing a lot of swaying? i think i am. i think i'll sit still for a moment. name. ronald goliath corbett. matt rampage, that is you, isn't it? possibly. volume the first. in which huntkin and ganderbolt travel to the land of growlocks. grollocks, mother. language, timothy! it is good night from me... and good night from him! do you mind if i have a smoke? what do you mean, smoke? have a smoke, like. have you got any pot on you? no. i know where i can get you some, though. i don't want any! have a chair, fletch. thanks very much. this is a problem.
i went those pills where they belong. what in your pocket, like? dear me, no. in the doctor's office. i didn't know you shared my views on the evils of drugs. it's not that, exactly. it's just that despicable pilfering of this nature is making a mess of my own pill—peddling operation. are these are my mops? brushes. brushes and mops. that's right. what do you want me to do with them? i think you know well enough what to do with them, father. look for dust and dirt. # tin in the office cupboard. # labelled, "lorraine," # because i've gone and got engaged again...#. i knew i was funny. i thought i could be funny, and i could play the piano. i thought, somehow, i will do something with this, but i did not know what it could be. # i'll be back at social security, queueing up to be abused. # to be listed on a card index,
one singer, slightly used #. hello. i'm looking for me friend. at another sort of swapping party, i ended up in a back bedroom with a man who owned a diy shop. and he ripped off all his clothes and said, "what would you like me to do?" i said, "well really, i'd like you to insulate the loft and lag the hot water tank". i went into the wvs centre today. it was more curiosity than anything. the lady who seems to run the centre, very tall, quite imposing, she sort of swept me up and i ended up making about 60 cups of tea. they did well out of you, then, didn't they? i liked her though, she knew what she wanted. # let's do it, let's do it. # i really want to run amok #. have you seen it on the trolley? two coffees, no sweet. two coffees, no sweet?
that's right. now what was i... have you seen it on the trolley? # let's do it tonight...#. if marjorie were to let her concentration lapse forjust one second i could literally... # let's go, because i know. # just how i want you to behave. # mot meekly, not bleakly, # beat me on the bottom with a women's weekly. # but let's do it...# have you ever been three weeks late? yeah, i have, actually. did you find out what it was? yeah, i was pregnant. no, i'm kidding! i'm kidding! it is over my head, too dangerous! my mother first realised i was an actor when an uncle of mine went to see a film called the inn of the sixth happiness. he rang my mother up and said, "that son of yours is in a film." my mother did not believe them.
she had to be dragged to see the film. she said, "yes, he looks familiar!" inspector clouseau's residence? because the prisoner is close to child, the imperial japanese army shall be... with the explosion of television, the world became smaller. and because the world became smaller, there was room for much more international types of entertainment. so that is where i dived in. i just got lucky. how come you have a name like entwistle ? i changed my name, didn't i? from mcintyre. i was forever being mistaken for a scot. what are you then? a yorkshireman, what else? you're five minutes late! i thought you were all listening to the archers, or something. that was a very short bit of football, or a very short first half. yes?
somebody says we appear to have lost that film. you are telling me! we will try to find it. i was totally changed by the experience of it. i went there and it was such a dreadful shock. i hope that i shall never see anything like this again... i think uou have much more humility after that kind of experience. you cannot go around being bombastic anymore. it calms you down. it makes you realise what some other people have to put up with in life. we are now coming to the last moment of apollo 13, as it begins its re—entry. the best thing we can do now isjust listen and hope. it needs to be edited and refined over time, you have to be very self—critical... i was a woman who did strange stuff.
there's a definite stigma to a woman's thing. to be accepted as an architect, i am not sure it is fully done. not here, not in this country, i am still considered to be on the margins. and i don't mind being on the edge, actually. it's a good place to be. i've just about had enough of you. go that way.
you'll be malfunctioning within a day, you near—sighted scrap pile. and don't let me catch you following me, begging for help, because you won't get it. # there's a star man, waiting in the sky... # he'd like to come and meet us but he thinks he will blow our minds... # there's a star man waiting in the sky, he told us not to blow it because he knows it is all worthwhile... roger, 05... i feel fine. a fluid body shift occurs, that is something that as i understand goes away over a couple of days, you get back to normal again... put your awareness to
the back of your head. just concentrate on feeling the inside of the back of your head. you should notice, with a little practice doing this, a definite shift in awareness. # ground control to major tom... # take your protein pills and put your helmet on... i'm only using rock and roll as a medium. i want it to be the instigator of new ideas, to turn people on to new things and perspectives. i was never that confident of my voice as a singer. i'd like to kind of portray the song. # ziggy played guitar...
i felt really comfortable going on stage as somebody else. and it seemed a rational decision to keep on doing that. # fame... # 0h, we can be heroes... i got besotted with the idea of creating character after character. # ashes to ashes... # let's dance... nothing will prepare you for the first dramatic performance in, the man who fell to earth. i don't need any help. i haven't practised walking for years. # look up here, i'm in heaven...
muhammad ali and sir terry wogan and prince are among those remembered. that's at 2.30pm on thursday. hello. it has been a bright, crisp day for most of us. it has been a nice day to be out and about. temperatures are already falling away sharply now the sun is setting and the other problem we will have tonight is fog. that fog will linger well into tomorrow in some places. it will cause disruption with a lot of people on the move. check out your bbc local radio station for the latest updates. no fog at the moment, it will well on into the night when the fog patches, but they will develop across england and wales. elsewhere, a mixture of low cloud and fog and some frost as well. quite a sharp frost in some places
too. a wintry strt to the day. pockets of frost further north, but nothing too widespread. in general temperatures higher. a lot of cloud across the west of scotland. murky up across the west of scotland. murky up over the high ground with the odd lightish drizzly shower and they will continue on and off particularly over the higher ground. but most of us will be dry. a good few of us will enjoy sunshine, but for some of us, it will abstruggle. notably across the heart of england where some of that fog will linger all day long. temperatures typically mid—single figures. milder than that across the far north—west of scotland. but where that fog lingers and we are expecting that to be across parts of the midlands, temperatures will struggle to get above freezing all day long. the fog will reform and by thursday it could be widespread across england and wales. again, it will be difficult to nail down the detail of where that fog will be and when it will lift. in some places it will linger. another chilly feeling day across
england and wales. highest temperatures across the far north—west of scotland, but here we have got an approaching weather front and that's going to be important as we end the week. it will bring heavier rain and gusty winds as well, butjust ahead of that front, some mild air. temperatures widely up into double figures across scotland and northern ireland. further south again, figures across scotland and northern ireland. furthersouth again, it will be chillier. the risk of one or two fog patches particularly across the south east of england, but it is all change as we hit the weekend. the fronts head south—east wards. we are going to see a splash of rain through this weekend and it will be quite heavy, i think. through this weekend and it will be quite heavy, ithink. behind through this weekend and it will be quite heavy, i think. behind that, we see another pulse of cold air coming down from the north. so day—to—day, it changes. we will keep you up—to—date including weather warnings which have been issued for the fog and i will be back with more details in half an hour's time. this is bbc news. the headlines: ministers reject criticism that plans to require voters to show id at polling stations are a "sledgehammer to crack a nut". the children's commissioner for england warns that four in five
young carers aren't receiving the help they need from social services. russian crash investigators examine a recovered flight data recorder recovered from the black sea, to try and discover why the military plane came down on sunday. the prevent anti—extremism programme is defended by leicestershire‘s chief constable — simon cole says some of the criticism of the scheme is "hysterical". also this hour, tributes are paid to the actress, liz smith, who's died at the age of 95. does this thing play cassettes as well? no nana, it'sjust cds.
