On another note - I remember in Channel 5's infancy they actually screened a "Queen Day" which was full of interesting Queen-related programming I'd never seen before or since, including a Queen-themed episode of the old quiz show 100%. Anyone else remember this?


I believe I videotaped the lot at the time...so, yes, I certainly remember it. Think they had one of those best queen songs rundown too.

A question...does Channel 5 show such low budget programming such as this? I'm in Canada so I really don't know the answer. Anyways, I wasn't expecting to be able to watch it, it would've been better if I didn't. Lesley Ann Jones...I can't get over her gall. I can forgive bad wigs, bad costumes...but not just parts of it that seemed taken from crappy tabloids.


Yes, Channel 5 has always shown the worst type of TV: The World's Fattest Woman; The Toddler Without a Face; Fatty Has a Tumour; Alien Porn (the last two I made up, but you get my drift).

That makes more sense. The person who runs Brian's site just puts anything that's in the news regarding Queen, etc. on as news bits. Not really promoting it. Just a catchall of news.


Yes, I see what you mean: I know site admin put up all sorts of stuff on there and so I guess it wouldn't be classed as promoting it in that sense - I just thought I had seen it on this site...but had obviously had a fucktard moment.


It happens to all of us :)
