Physical versus Digital

Tuesday, 10 May 2016 12:09:35 Europe/London

In the not too distant past, if you wanted to own your favourite TV programme, you had to wait a few weeks for the DVD/Blu-ray to be released after the last episode had aired. There is a certain thrill in the anticipation of receiving a physical product which is part of the joy. Once received, you can delight in the artwork that graces the front cover and feel excited at discovering that it has a wealth of bonus content such as interviews, booklets and trailers, allowing you to learn more about your favourite show

Location, Location, Location

Tuesday, 12 April 2016 09:22:36 Europe/London

Location, Location, Location. It’s a mantra we may mutter to ourselves when we’re looking for a new home but it’s also an enticing factor in the TV programmes we watch. Many TV programmes are set or filmed in lush locations that can cause wanderlust and inspire you to max out your credit card and book a flight so you can explore the destination with your own eyes. Lest we forget that the moving image has long since been considered as a window onto the world where we can visit exotic lands without ever leaving the comfort of our own homes. With this in mind, this week’s blog takes a look at the settings for a few programmes that may encourage you to make a pilgrimage in homage of your favourite TV show. You have been warned!
