Catches A Weekend Web of Loveliness


Friday again my goodness.That was a quick one and a weekend of promise awaits (I think that means I can't remember anything that I'm supposed to be doing but someone will tell me soon). No school run, no art to watch, no exam results to wait for, just sleeping students who are unlikely to be up before the ARF kicks in. I can't remember the last time I slept beyond 7am but that's what a few years on the breakfast shift can do.
It's a 2 show Friday today starting with movies at 2 on 5L. Special guest today is Andrew Garfield who is the new Spiderman in The Amazing Spiderman. And very good he is too. I can't think of any 28 year old actor who could so convincingly be a school kid and then climb buildings. And he is a delight to interview: charming, humble and surprisingly English. Having been brought up in Surrey but born in the USA, his accents are spot on and I think he will win audiences over. Whether it makes the same impact as the last Toby Maguire-based Spiderman is open to question but we are planning a family trip at the earliest opportunity. Go Spidy.
And your All Request Friday awaits at 5. Go on, pick something fabulous.
Have a riveting and sparkly Friday. See you at 5.
