Ridley Road

From the BBC, I only found this recently, a 4 part drama set in East London in 1962. Very watchable.

Another I saw advertised on the TV.

I thought it might be worth watching but Mrs Chilli wasn't that interested, so it looks like another episode of Eastenders will be on whilst I read a book!!

It's on catch up so try and watch if you can. I really enjoyed it. And looks good visually.

Just finished watching it on ABC iview here in Australia, followed by a re-watching of The Trial of Christine Keeler... Both great productions of the early 1960s. Nothing wrong with a bit of 1960s reimagining binge-watching. When I have my television up and running, I may invest in the Endeavour and Inspector George Gently box sets too.

If anyone wanted to know, yes, Francoise Dior was a relation of fashion designer, Christian. He had already died in 1957.

All's well here, but I haven't been well myself since my last birthday in November (not COVID-19). This year has been rather an up and down year, to say the least.

I've read Keelers books on the Profumo affair and found them fascinating.
