In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
1st April 1993

Rough Justice looks at the conviction of one of the men involved in the murder of 2 soldiers in plain clothes who accidentally drove into a IRA mans funeral cortège in Belfast, March 1988. It was one of the most horrific filmed scenes of the entire troubles. Tensions were high after the Loyalist nutter Michael Stone had thrown a hand grenade at a IRA funeral killing 3 people a few days before.
The two convicted were given US style prison lengths 79 & 83 years after the minimum tariff of 25 years was initially given.
Both were released under the GFA.

The pilot episode of Porridge, A snippet of what was to come in the script. Brilliant stuff.
Part of the BBC Comedy Playhouse Series, Seven of One.

The success of the pilot episode lead to the first series being broadcast in September 1974.

I am enjoying the re run of Crown Court on TPTV although the pilot that I had not previously seen was very average.

Jury far too lenient in R v Lord. Defendant bashes Police Officer on the head with heavy chisel and he is gravely ill for a month but she gets off all charges. Not even a motive of self defence. :mad:

Seven of One was an inspired series, as it also produced Open All Hours.

When Bob Marley came to Britain on BBC4. A very interesting look at his life. Some great footage. First shown a couple of years ago.

I had to laugh when my good lady said “is that him” on a piece that was recorded in 2020 😁( It was Don Letts)
I should not have been surprised because earlier we were watching a rerun of a TOTP from April 1983 with David Bowie at number one, asking if he was still about. 😁

There was a tour poster shown for first tour of The Wailers in 1973, one date was at Rolle College, Exmouth.

Just finished binge watching The Night Agent on Netflix.
If you like conspiracy theories, dodgy secret agents and lots of action, this is for you.
9/10 from me.
Half way through it after a binge yesterday. Yep, pretty good.

Bob Marley played a gig at Exmouth's Rolle College on his first ever UK tour apparently. I have asked here previously if anybody here went to it, or knows someone that did?

Addendum: I see Olds beat me to it
