Recently, I have been pointing my camera at the telly.

I wish someone would tell Deidre that smocks are in fashion.

Digital is giving me subtitles whether I want them or not.

And - talking of subtitles - I wish I knew what Alma’s body language was saying here.

This is just a quick post to say ‘Tara’ for a bit.

On Sunday I’m going away for 10 days.
I’ll miss you. Be good.

Who's your Digital with Kaz? Ours was doing the sub-title thing a week or so ago (with Virgin) somewhere it the settings an item had selected itself.

Deidre and fashion? In the same sentence? Isn't the point of Deidre to let us know what isn't in fashion? It always used to be.

The lovely Alma is clearly trying to stop that strange looking bloke looking down her top.

Havea good trip!

I wish someone would tell Deirdre that wearing polyester tops that are two sizes too small and show off every ounce of flab and cellulite aren't fashionable.

We'll miss you too.

Is Thatcher about to say "...gin and tonics"?

Alma's saying "I know you often feel a right tit, Charlie. But you're not feeling mine."

Have a great time, Kaz.

Sounds like a challenge!

Er - I don't think it's with anyone - it just comes down the aerial and through the little box. these subtitles aren't like the ceefax ones - they lag behind and get it wrong a lot.

Glad you've finally seen the point of old Deidre.

She probably got hooked on those body/leotard things that fastened at the crotch and put strange expressions on women's faces throughout the eighties.

There was a story about the Duke of Ed asking Alma to 'initiate' Charles.
She probably said the same thing at the time.

We watched Das Boot and the subtitles were annoying.

Have a great time and hope it stops raining for you, chuck.

(bit of vernacular for you there!)

I've packed that anorak

'Chuck'? - don't say you're a secret Deidre fan!
Thanks Murph.

The woman in that last picture clearly didn't realise it was evening dress - she's got her lab coat and a muffler on. And is probably about to wallop HRH with that bag in her left hand.
Have a good time.

on mine [which is a very old one] i have to press "menu" and then select "viewing preferences" then NOT "tv & video prefs" as I first thought but "digital box settings" which has a submenu which includes "subtitles" which can be set to "on" or "off". Having selected my setting I then have to select "back" twice and finally "exit". Yours though may have different menus and different buttons on the remote. None of it is very untuitive though.

Our dvd player keeps slipping into subtitles when we least expect it. Pesky technology. It's very annoying.

Hope you have a great time away. Don't forget to tell us all.

As for the being good part...too late.

At least your subtitles are in English. Mine periodically show up in Spanish. I can't get rid of them and I can't switch the language, either. They tell me the problem is with my 12-year-old TV, but I won't replace it until it dies. I just watch around the words onscreen.

Thanks for the good wishes everyone.

'View' - Good to see you're back

'That woman' is my lovely Alma - but I did wonder what she was doing with a bin bag in her hand when talking to the future King.

Hi Annulla!

Canadians will rejoice at the subtitles.

Kaz, in Amanda Barrie's autobiography she reveals taht she was approached by the palace to be the er, lady, who relieved Prince Charles of his virginity. So I'd guess she's thinking "I didn't want to do it then and I don't want to do it now".
