Before my time Justin and not really my cup of tae, though I did see the Cipper Carlton and the Indians at the fag end of that era in the 80s. Good documentary and an interesting piece of social history.

Yes, for that program.
There was also an hour of Christie Moore live in Glasgow, an hour of the Undertones and an hour of Stiff Little Fingers with U2.
As mentioned the Showband program was good, if not a little sad at the end.

You forgot "The Irish Rock Story: A Tale of 2 Cities" well worth a download

. ..you might want to skip the last 15 mins when they get to U2 :lol:

Alan Partridge's Oirish lookalike at the end of Monday's episode. Comedy gold. Coogan is a genius.

That was funny.

Have finally just seen Cyprus Avenue with Stephen Rea. Even funnier and savage.

I can't stand Partridge. He's so unprofessional. His behaviour towards his own lookalike was poor. He has to bring everything back to himself.
I have my own tv channel, what have you got?

The wife persuaded me to watch First Dates tonight.

First up was an NI owl lover. She fell for a penguin aficionado. Nice it was.

The owl lover wasn't called Claire or Crystal by any chance ?
