Loved it, so gentle and romantic.

A diversion ... but one other lovely thing, NOT onb TV, was seeing large groups of lapwings flying near the M40 3 days ago- together with 50+ red kites... <3

We saw a large flock of lapwings today too, it's lovely to see their numbers recovering so well. Beautiful birds.

It was good, but saw it last year. I do wish that they would dig out some films we have not seen instead of the same films year after year. Dr. No again tonight. [yawn]

Did anyone see the programme about the Pandas? It was fascinating and very moving. I just wish the Chinese could be as caring of other animals as they clearly are of the Pandas!

or even people

Yes, the Panda prog was good, if a bit "feel good".

I wish they'd talked about why they breed so badly and are so threatened in the wild. It's lovely to see them thriving, but I'm wondering if they'd be extinct if they were left to it.

Baby pandas were my new year TV highlight. Also I enjoyed the programme about Take That's tour. I wouldn't say I was a fan but their show did look amazing and they all came across as likeable people.

I loved the Panda programme too. They are so cute!!!smile

I loved that Judi Dench/Dustin thing when it was first on. I didn't realise it was going to be repeated or I would have taped it to watch again.

jinglbellsfrocks Fri 01-Jan-16 11:04:07

Yes. DH had obviously watched it before. Gave the game away! hmm

Grannylyn65. I am not a softie. I am well 'ard.

I have recorded it and am looking forward to watching it.

Watched Stickman yesterday with DGS, we all loved it.He has the book.

jinglbellsfrocks Fri 01-Jan-16 16:28:09

Dickensian was nice. Although you did have to know your Dickens to completely understand it.

tiredoldwoman Fri 01-Jan-16 16:39:41

I loved 'Sunshine On Leith ', it was the best thing over the holiday !

Katek Fri 01-Jan-16 16:55:30

We watched 'How To Train Your Dragon' and not a dgc in sight! Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Deedaa Fri 01-Jan-16 21:53:12

Loved the trials of poor Stickman and even DH watched and enjoyed the pandas.

durhamjen Fri 01-Jan-16 22:02:33

Dickensian is nice, do you mean, jingl? It hasn't finished yet. As you say you need to know your Dickens.
I have been recording them with a view to watching again with grandson. It will be interesting to see how much he takes in, or whether we give up quite quickly. A challenge, although he is better than me at remembering characters from Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings books.

The Farmers Llamas was very funny, think I enjoyed it more than the DGC.
