Fri 12 Mar 2010 19:38:25 GMT+1 Jen Pauline Quirke is a brillient actor always entertaining. Jen. Fri 12 Mar 2010 15:58:49 GMT+1 sxg123 #47 I think you're wrong. There are plenty of references to the daffodil research on the web. Thu 11 Mar 2010 17:24:08 GMT+1 callyfragilistic Nothing wrong with a bit of tat. Think it's a bit of a blokey blendy thing thus enabling us, the great unwashed, to feel at home and sypathise with the plight of the hard-strapped Beeb. Looks like my diamante earrings will have to go back to the pawnbrokers mind - seeing as the TV licence is being increased, yet again, to £145 on April 1st. Someone's having a laugh - and it ain't us.Sorry Christine. The equivalent blendy thing will just have to wait lass. I'll just have to gaze in awe, wonderment and a tad of envy. It's just me and me fluffy tortoise slippers now and one of them is looking a bit worried. - worn well over the years mind. Sequins? Nowt but a dream now lass. Don't worry Adrian. Nothing wrong with a bit of tat. (northern pron. pref. to the long Bath suvv'n.) Stick to ya class lad. Stick to ya class. Can you not gerra shot o' Gilbert O'Sullivan's cap for a loan of a gobstopper? Thu 11 Mar 2010 11:58:54 GMT+1 Ella alphadog 42..Personally i thought Adrian looked great tonight..leave the guy alone...I wonder what tat you are wearing as you sit down to write your critique.... Thu 11 Mar 2010 10:46:32 GMT+1 Carola Gasson Dear bordeauxmalc,My information comes from the Pharmaceutical Journal, the official publication of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society! Thu 11 Mar 2010 08:53:09 GMT+1 bordeauxmalc 24 Carola GlassonSome five years ago my wife managed a pharmaceutical study for severe Alzheimer's disease and the drug being tested was derived from the daffodil. Indeed the daffodil was used a symbol for the study.Perhaps it is you who should check the facts! Thu 11 Mar 2010 03:33:18 GMT+1 flunklumpard Blimey, the daffodil blog got busy tonight. Shame the rest of the programme didn't generate such interest. Wed 10 Mar 2010 23:38:32 GMT+1 bwoods30 @40Sorry to hear Denmark is at the grips of Tyrants just like UK. The BBC now have made sure you need a license for a computer so kind of the same as Denmark. Thought the show was no great tonight CB laughing all the time like a mad witch. Wed 10 Mar 2010 22:06:22 GMT+1 tyroneshoelaces 42 alphadogApparently the show decides how the presenters should appear. Wed 10 Mar 2010 22:00:02 GMT+1 alphadog I was flabbergasted to hear Adrian Chiles criticize the clothes worn by the weather forecaster who predicted Friday's weather for Christine, in view of the fact that Mr Chiles always looks such a shabby and scruffy mess on the One Show. Why on earth doesn't the producer tell him to smarten himself up? His run-down appearance detracts from what might otherwise be quite a good show. Wed 10 Mar 2010 21:40:33 GMT+1 Danedweller #40 Just another of the many injustices I am afraid. Absolutely nothing you or I can do about it other than give up watching ALL TV. The system is rigged so that you have to pay for the BBC illuminati to enable you to watch SKY or Commercial TV even if you never ever watched another BBC programme. Same here in Denmark only even more expensive and worse! You have to pay for a TV licence, even if you don't have a television, to receive Broadband would you believe!!!So, watch out UK I am sure that before long Broadband will carry a licence! Wed 10 Mar 2010 21:35:06 GMT+1 bwoods30 Why are poor hard working families forced to pay for the high wages of the talentless CB, the BBC should hang its head in shame :( Wed 10 Mar 2010 21:09:34 GMT+1 bwoods30 @38LOL Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:54:40 GMT+1 tyroneshoelaces #32 bwoodsBroomstick? wags use credit cards. Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:52:14 GMT+1 sxg123 DanedwellerMany thanks for your comments on the Carly Simon blog. Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:52:02 GMT+1 Danedweller #33 UROnot etc.The prescribed medicines here in Denmark have Braille written on the packs, how neet is that! Hopefully, they now offer the same service in the UK. Being an expat I have never seen it.I can't imagine what it would be like to be on several medications and not knowing which pack you have picked up! Scarey Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:50:32 GMT+1 sxg123 #33 UR0not11111010Yes, I saw your comments, thanks. I still can't quite believe what's happened tonight. Just when I thought I'd had a very good response from the BBC that bloggers would look upon positively, another arm of the BBC was censoring it.On the whole, I think the show is improving from a pretty low point and hopefully the generally constructive input from bloggers has been responsible to a greater or lesser extent. Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:49:13 GMT+1 bwoods30 oh look lambing live is on BBC 2 what great TV Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:43:23 GMT+1 UR0not11111010 sxg123# I wrote to you where told to ooh!! I feel like I am back at School, hope AC etc., etc., feel the same, but doubt it. I did enjoy Pauline Quirke, have always liked her a lot. I also was very interested in the Blind Gentleman explaining about Braille the other day, he was exceptionally articulate, I wanted to say so on the day but was unable to unfortunately. Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:42:39 GMT+1 bwoods30 Couldn't CB just use her broomstick to get to France, would be better TV Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:41:05 GMT+1 1Sandra2 I felt very patronised tonight - during Arthur Smith's report on George Bernard Shaw he made a comment regarding Shaw's voracious reading habit - "he didn't even go to university" .... [but still managed to read books].The inference is clear - obviously those of us not university educated don't read books. Wake up Mr Smith - there are those of us who could not go to university. Not always our fault either - my parents wouldn't let me go (the female card), and I know plenty of others who weren't allowed for similar reasons.An apology is called for. Adrian Chiles apologises at every possible opportunity, so please - one for me now. I DESERVE one. Please don't use such biased commentators again - it's time Hardeep and Carol were forgiven and allowed back anyway. Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:27:12 GMT+1 Danedweller It is this time of the year I miss living in good old Lincolnshire, with acres upon acres of golden daffs. Over here Mmmmmm wind turbines and forests, not quite the same. Oh well, back in blighty in April will hopefully see the fields of shrub roses and cabbages. Lincolnshire. The vegetable basket of England. Happy days. Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:20:38 GMT+1 Danedweller #28 TyroneshoelacesOoops. (red face). Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:17:01 GMT+1 tyroneshoelaces 27 danedwellerYou most certainly did! Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:13:24 GMT+1 Danedweller #25 tyroneshoelacesDid I spoil it? Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:09:37 GMT+1 Danedweller Looking at the number of bloggs, tonight only the stalwart TOS ERS are here tonight, must be football on the other side! or, something more interesting that CB's waterskiing challenge to watch. Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:08:27 GMT+1 tyroneshoelaces Shh! keep quiet - 23 posts and not a mention, by name at least, of you know who! Great!Keep it up.Not enough of that good old Christine walkden Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:04:37 GMT+1 Carola Gasson I want to comment about the daffodil facts being given out in tonight's broadcast, in particular about them being used for treating dementia - this is incorrect! Snowdrop bulbs and leaves which contain Galantamine are used to treat dementia and some neurological conditions such as neuritis and neuralgia. I do wish the programme makers would check their facts properly. Wed 10 Mar 2010 20:03:02 GMT+1 Danedweller # 22I vil say dis vonce and vonce only.In a shop near you! Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:58:36 GMT+1 flunklumpard sxg123 & danedwellerThe 'oneshowblogadmin' has suddenly come to life!"Ve must do exactly as they seh, othervise ve vill be taken outside and shot"Loved Christine Walkden's flowers - where can I get them? Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:56:20 GMT+1 Danedweller We have dear visiting our woodland garden several times a week. This winter has been so hard, with 106 days of continuous snow on the ground, several inches think, they are desperate for food. We found them eating the seeds and nuts from the bird table and spread on the ground. We tried carrots and cabbage but they showed no interest. They look remarkably well considering the terrible winter they have endured. Spring cannot come quick enough for the wildlife, birds and for myself! Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:50:29 GMT+1 tyroneshoelaces Nice to see Pauline Quirke. Lovely, down to earth woman.Also nice to hear Sheila Fogarty from R5L on the John Venables issue. A measured response from her.Sadly the waterskiing epic is not taking place tomorrow and I sincerely hope that Friday will be a goer. If that fails we will no doubt have to wait till next week. The tension is killing me. So much so that I'll do it myself at the weekend, regardless of the weather. Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:48:57 GMT+1 Danedweller #15 sxg123Typical BBC knee jerk reaction, responding as if you have personally given then a slap in the face, when all you wanted to do is to inform other bloggers in a constructive manner the outcome of their justified complaints. Never mind, keep paying the licence fee, one and all, it pays the wages. Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:42:57 GMT+1 tyroneshoelaces #16 liesand statsIt is [robably your first post and as yet hasn't been moderated and may appear shortly. Subsequent posts will be published immediately Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:41:01 GMT+1 sxg123 #14 oneshowblogadminMay I suggest that you amend the House Rules to make this new restriction (posts must relate only to the current show) clear to all? Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:40:27 GMT+1 liesandstats umm any reason why my post praising Pauline Quirk has been removed? Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:37:19 GMT+1 sxg123 #13 DanedwellerFor anyone who is interested, I have re-posted #1 on the Carly Simon blog from 1st March, post #187.You may have to be quick. Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:31:57 GMT+1 oneshowblogadmin Hi bloggers,the place on the blogs to chat about the episode of The One Show featuring Carly Simon is here: wishes Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:31:06 GMT+1 Danedweller #3 oneshowblogadmin.Feelings ran high following the interview with Carly Simon, with bloggers asking for an apology. Of course, they were not going to get one, but perhaps posting the BBC response to the complaints would have explained fully the problems AC and CB experienced on the evening in question. Regretably, a lost opportunity, because the posting by #1 sxg123 has been removed. Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:26:50 GMT+1 Sandra Boyle As a regular viewer I feel news items such as the Jon Venables item should be left to the news programmes. I want to watch fun and informative pieces and more chat with the guest of the day especially people like Pauline who is such a great actress and who hardly got a chance to talk at all. Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:26:17 GMT+1 Louise I couldnt help but laugh when they said Muntjac deer were rarely seen, I see at least three everytime i drive out of my village! They don't seem too bothered by the presence of cars or people! Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:23:32 GMT+1 liesandstats I loved Pauline Quirk in last years programme. Personally I think she's a wonderful actress who deserves a lot more airtime. I'm so looking forward to this series. Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:21:19 GMT+1 bwoods30 This post has been Removed Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:18:33 GMT+1 bwoods30 This post has been Removed Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:15:39 GMT+1 extrawide Thank you for the real insight to the John Venables debate from your guest Sheila Fogarty. Moving and real rather than the tablid speculation Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:10:56 GMT+1 flunklumpard sxg123The removal was ridiculous. It is about the show and actually defended the presenter.The BBC does however have some serious quirks - yesterday Chris Moyle stated that under Beeb rules he could not give out the text number for donations, as that can only be done on TOS. Wed 10 Mar 2010 19:02:52 GMT+1 sxg123 #3 oneshowblogadminThere doesn't seem much point in adding to a blog from more than a week ago as no one will read it.I thought the BBC response was very helpful and enlightening for bloggers irrespective of which show they were commenting on.The House Rules don't preclude commenting on an earlier show. Wed 10 Mar 2010 18:58:41 GMT+1 sxg123 #2 flunklumpardYes, I think we all get carried away some times (me included) but Adrian does little to help his own cause. It can't be easy sitting there with someone constantly firing instructions into his ear.I agree about the BBC Complaints response providing an insight into what goes on behind the scenes.I see the blog has been removed for some reason. So much for that then. Wed 10 Mar 2010 18:52:31 GMT+1 oneshowblogadmin Hi sxg123, please let's try and keep this blog for discussing tonight's show. It gets confusing for new visitors if the conversation veers too far off topic. Please post comments about previous shows on the blog post about that show. Thank you. Wed 10 Mar 2010 18:50:56 GMT+1 flunklumpard sxg123Whilst I am quite critical of many things on the programme and of the presenters I do think Adrian gets unfairly hammered at times. At least the response allows us to see the other side of the problem. Wed 10 Mar 2010 18:37:26 GMT+1 sxg123 This post has been Removed Wed 10 Mar 2010 18:21:43 GMT+1
