music. bond. james bond. i'm just going to put some clothes on. 0h, don't go to any trouble on my account. do you expect me to talk? no, mr bond, i expect you to die! i had no awareness of that scale of kind of reverence and pressure and what have you, and ifound it a bit of a nightmare. my name is pussy galore. i must be dreaming. they weren't used to writing a woman who was the equal of a man.
you have a very disarming nature. and it really did, i think, advance feminism. well, judging by the letters i got. isn't it customary to grant a condemned man his last request? you asked for this. she wasn'tjust physical, she was also pretty well—equipped. intellectually, she was as clever as a man. computers... she was very self—sufficient. you're full of surprises, contessa. so are you, mr bond. do you always arm yourself for a rendezvous? the lords in westeros are sheep. are you a sheep? no, you're a dragon. # lean on me
# when you're not strong # and i'll be your friend # i'll help you carry on # for it won't be long. # till i'm going to need # somebody to lean on...# # ain't no sunshine when she's gone # it's not warm when she's away # ain't no sunshine when she's gone # she's always gone too long # any time she goes away...# # does an angel contemplate my fate ? # cheering and applause hello, and welcome to this brand—new series of love island. # thoughts running through my head
# and i feel the love is dead # i'm loving angels instead...# cheering and applause. # whomp bopa—a—lu—a # whop bam bop, tutti—frutti! # tutti—frutti! i wanted to sound different. me and the young kids was tired of all that slow music. we wanted to boogie. # tutti-frutti!# so what i did, i started singing tutti—frutti loud. just screaming! # bop bopa—a—lu a whop bam boo!# # lucille! # baby, satisfy my heart...# # you picked a fine time to leave me, lucille
# with four hungry children and a crop in the field # i've had some bad times # lived through some sad times # but this time your hurting won't heal. ..# my mum said it very well one day. she said, "that boy never worked a day in his life. all he ever did was sing." # i promised you, dad, not to do the things that you done # i walk away from trouble when i can # now please don't think i'm weak # i couldn't turn the other cheek # papa, i sure hope you understand # sometimes you got to fight when you're a man...# # islands in the stream # that is what we are # no one in between # how can we be wrong? # sail away with me # to another world # and we rely on each other
# from one lover to another... # sail away... # oh, come sail away!# and now, from norwich, it's the quiz of the week. i'm proud of the fact that i helped create a huge success. you don't buck success. hello, and welcome to the sale of the century. but i don't want to be remembered just for sale of the century. as a straight man, you know how to throw out the lines so the comic will have a good springboard to come back and make some facetious or humorous or witty response. and also you know how to take a joke at your expense, cos the comedian, the straight man in a relationship is always the one who's put down. # i am woman, hear me roar
# in numbers too big to ignore # and i know too much to go back and pretend # oh, yes, i'm wise, but it's wisdom born of pain # yes, i've paid the price # but look how much i gained # if i have to, i can do anything # i am strong # i am invincible # i am woman...# i didn't know what you could and couldn't do. but i was full of what orson welles called the confidence of ignorance.
you know, it's like i don't know that i'm breaking rules because i don't know what the rules are. we won't be there when you cross the road, so always use the... ..green cross code. i almost got the sack from the government because they thought that my image as darth vader would have a detrimental effect on my image as the green cross code man. you are part of the rebel alliance and a traitor. take her away. could you explain this to me? what? this, this stuff on my plate. it's your dinner. i know it's my dinner, but could you identify the various heaps? very well, listen carefully, blackadder, i won't repeat this.
put your underpants on your head and stick two pencils up your nose. # my boy lollipop # you make my heart go giddy—up # you are as sweet as candy # you're my sugar dandy # whoa—oh, my boy lollipop # never ever leave me # because it would grieve me # my heart told me so...# well, there's an old saying in my game, son. you can't put in what god's left out. now, you leave it to me, i'll watch you, i'll observe, and if i think i can help,
if i can see the big prize hanging there, believe me, i won't waste any time. i need a holiday, a very long holiday. and i don't expect i shall return. what? nothing. no, it'sjust i've never seen an elderly person with pink hair. except maybe on clowns. are you trying to be funny? no. i never try to be funny. you can ask anyone. my name's 0llie. what are you doing with your books? oh, i'm having a sort out. did you read in the papers about that lady librarian in ipswich last week? you mean the lady in a public library who said that the billy bunter stories
were unfit for children? yes, that's her. you see, you have much less to do now that you're prime minister. you no longer have a department of your own. you can't be serious. oh, yes. everything you've always read in the paper about how hard the prime minister has to work is a bit of a myth, really. it's put out by the press office as a matter of course, but if you think about it, what do you have to do? chair the cabinet? two and a half hours a week. ridiculous, there must be more to it than that! well, of course, you'll have to read all the briefs and we'll rush you from place to place shaking hands with people. but other than that, well, there's lots of things people want you to do and lots of things you should do, and many things you can do, but very few things you have to do. after all, it's up to you.
# ain't it a shame # sparrows can't sing # think of the joy # flowers might bring...# evening all! grant! mum. i heard you were back. i was going to give you a call. why didn't you, you uselss great lump? come on, give us a hug. get out of my pub! dame babs sounds nice, doesn't it? but my mum would like it to be dame barbara. she was a bit of a cockney snob, my mum, so it would be dame barbara. gosh, what would she be thinking now? what would she be thinking. my friend. oh, my dear friend. you won't ever leave me, will you? # goodies, goody—goody yum yum!#
we are the goodies. yes, we know that. and we are going to do good to people. we had it tough. i used to have to get out of a shoe box at midnight, lick road clean, eat a couple of bits of coal gravel, work 23 hours a day at mill for a penny every four years, and when we got home, dad used to slice us in half with a bread knife. hello, mrs rogers! hello! oh, i must be in the wrong house! they can't get the fire brigade, mervin. will the boys‘ brigade do? now, you listen here! he's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy! now go away. who are you? i'm his mother, that's who! not only bad, but mad. trenchearous, vindictive,
megalomaniac and vain. you shot at them with rubber bullets and gas. the crowd was marching over there. the leaders were going to speak to you. before we even got there, you opened fire. there's not a single injustice in northern ireland today that justifies the taking of a single human life. today, we can take a collective breath and begin to blow away, let's hope, the cobwebs of the past. # is give peace a chance...# dave, which british artist's work was featured on the cover of the 1989 telephone directory
for the city of bradford? as i always say to my mate in the pub, go with the favourite, david hockney. bradford's favourite son, or one of them anyway. david hockney is the right answer, dave. yes, well done. good evening. this time tomorrow, it'll all be over. will the grand national throw up yet another moment of drama to be written into the history of the greatest steeplechases of them all? 6:30, monday, january 17, 1983. you're watching the first edition of bbc television's breakfast time. there's been a record glut of goals today. 15! in all. bobby charlton with the corner. jack! perfect goal! great tackle by charlton. came in like a brick wall, and he's hurt. he got an elbow in the face. people try and compare us, and i used to say, you shouldn't compare us. i can stop other people playing, but i can't play. bobby can play.
he's a creative player. but there's a place in the game for both types. nobby stiles in a movement which is to end with a clash. i used to walk over the bridge of old trafford when i was a kid and imagine that the tannoy was going to announce that they was a player short and would nobby stiles come and get changed. can he get a shot in? he gets a shot in. to go down there and walk down there and become a player at manchester united is unbelievable. i have never seen nobby stiles like this before! that was a supreme save! trying to get there... oh, what a save! maradona!
translation: i couldn't reach it, and shilton was already there, so i couldn't head it, so i did like that. i believe it's a craftiness. it's not cheating. he won't need any of them! oh, you have to say, that is magnificent! he's played it boldly. that could be magical. i tried to be an observer. you get into trouble for that
sometimes if you don't say the right things to the right people. thank you. 0n the 22, the switches, he has richards outside him. jj williams, and he's going to score! no bother! # keep on running # keep on hiding # 0ne fine day # i'm going to be the one to make you understand # oh, yeah, i'm going to be your man...# # i can see clearly
number two, ernie — "des 0'connor‘s a self—made man." eric — "i think it's very nice of him to take the blame." # loneliness, alone you'll always. ..# an old lady came up to me at the stage door and said, "mr 0'connor, i have enjoyed your show." here's £5, "can you send me your lp?" i said, "you can get it at the shop for £3." she said, "i asked at the shop for the des 0'connor lp and the guy said, are you kidding?" # homeless # and where homeless, moonlight sleeping # homeless, homeless, moonlight sleeping on a midnight lake # and we're homeless, we're homeless sleeping on a midnight lake # moonlight sleeping ona midnight lake...# # homeless, homeless, moonlight
sleeping on a midnight lake # and we're homeless, we're homeless sleeping on a midnight lake # moonlight sleeping ona midnight lake...# # the devil went down to georgia # he was looking for a soul to steal # he was in a bind cos he was way behind # he was willing to make a deal...# # everybody walk the dinosaur. ..# # we just haven't got a clue what to do # just try a little wigwam, bam!# come on, tommy, rock on. what do you mean, rock on?
it's not a discotheque. it's not top of the tops, it's a seaside special. ijust saw david hamilton. it's no different, it's a seaside special. go on, tommy, rock on. now rock off! what a lovely dress, scarlett, darling. he wasn't able to come tonight. will you be an angel? i do need you to help me receive my guests.
"you don't want to be in gone with the wind." he said, "that's going to be the biggest bust in town." and i wouldn't think of contradicting my boss. so i said, "even so, mr warner, i would like to be in it, i really would." i'm spartacus! i never thought of becoming a tycoon or anything. it gave me the chance to do movies i wanted to do. like i wanted to do spartacus, i wanted to do a movie about vikings, paths of glory. would you like me to suggest what you can do with that promotion? those were movies, they were not easy, even though they were quite successful, it was not easy to get the financing for them and all that. # get up # get on up # stay on the scene # get on up # like a sex machine # get on up...# on my signal, open north—west section 17.
wa kanda forever! i know what it means to see somebody that looks like you and play the hero and the villain. and have the freedom to be both things. why should i not be glad to contemplate the clouds clearing beyond the dormer window and the high tide reflected on the ceiling? there will be dying, there will be dying, but there is no need to go into that. the poems flow from the hand unbidden, and the hidden source is the watchful heart. the sun rises in spite of everything, and the far cities are beautiful and bright. and i hear in a riot of sunlight, watching the day break and the clouds fly, everything is going to be all right. # there'll be bluebirds over
the white cliffs of dover...# this little girl from the east end would never have had the opportunity if she had never been singing. if my mother hadn't put me on the stage. i know europe were getting well supplied. i want to go somewhere where there isn't any entertainers. so they said, "well, burma's the only place, you know?" # roll out the barrel...# # we'll meet again # don't know where, don't know when # but i know we'll meet again some sunny day!#
hello there. parts of the uk have seen quite a bit of snowfall over the last few days, mainly north and western parts of england into wales, northern scotland and parts of northern ireland. the south—east corner, though, still hasn't seen that much, you could see some over the next few days, and likely to see further bouts of rain, sleet and snow. of course, ice will be an issue pretty much wherever you are over the coming few days. this cold northerly wind blowing right down across the country will be with us for the rest of this week and into the start of 2021. it'll be pushing in lots of showers around coastal areas overnight, but through the night, it looks like we could see winds turning a little bit more northwesterly via the showers into western coasts of scotland, northern ireland, into western england and wales.
could see some lengthy clear spells further east. it'll be a cold night wherever you are, could see temperatures of —8, —9 celsius in some of the snowy glens of scotland. so for wednesday, then, we continue with the coastal wintry showers. this feature running into the southwest could bring cloud and outbreaks of rain and, as it bumps into the cold air into southern england and south wales, it could turn into sleet and snow, certainly over the high ground, with rain closer to the coast. but there's still some uncertainty to the northwards or southwards extent of this. a cold day for many, but there will be some sunshine particularly across central and eastern areas. now it could be through wednesday night, this feature runs across southern england into the south east to bring some rain, sleet and snow over the high ground — again, this is one system to watch. and this feature running south across the central and southern scotland, northern england could bring some substantial snow certainly to the high ground here, so we could be looking at some disruption to start new year's eve here. and a cold night to come, again, subzero values for most of us. now this is the pressure chart for new year's eve — for thursday, low pressure over the north sea, higher pressure
out west, fairly breezy conditions out west, a strong northerly here, that will just accentuate the cold. it does look like new year's eve could be quite disruptive across central and southern scotland, northern england, this mixture of rain, sleet and a hill snow will push southwards into western england, perhaps wales as we head through the day. could start to weaken, though, as it moves southwards — there's some uncertainty on this, you'll have to stay tuned to the forecast. there will be some sunshine around again, but it won't do much for the temperatures, it'll stay cold. and then for new year's day and the first weekend of january 2021, it looks cold with further rain, sleet and snow in places.
