WATCH any amount of telly and you cannot help but notice silent approval of the NHS is no longer enough. Presenters must tilt their head and go all gooey whenever they mention this “National treasure”. Quiz show contestants are given a special ovation just for revealing: “I work in the NHS.” There are awards shows in its honour now on both BBC1 and ITV, whose version was attended, last week, by a glittering array of tax exiles giving eulogies that would make Kim Jong-un blush. Some of it is undoubtedly sincere. Some is also done to shut down anything other than the argument that says “It needs more money”, while other bits are there just because TV executives have noticed it’s the NHS’s 70th birthday and think they’d better do something to look caring. Like, for instance, ITV’s A&E Live, “from the frontline”, at Leeds General Infirmary. A self-defeating three-day experiment which, on the one hand gleefully … [Read more...] about Hysterical presenter Davina McCall needs sedating on ITV’s A&E Live
Israeli singer Netta wins the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest with Toy A protester interrupted the UK's entry SuRie by invading the stage SuRie was invited to perform a second time, but chose not to Netta, Toy review: 'Israel's winning song is gloriously bizarre pop' ★★★★☆ The final as it happened: 12:01AM Someone's already planning for 2019 That's it from us, but before we head off to the Euro-disco to strut our stuff (or, more accurately, head straight to bed with a mug of Horlicks), it's worth noting that one possible UK contender for 2019 has already thrown her hat in the ring. Step forward Scottish comedian and News Quiz panellist Susan Calman. Can she sing? No, but she can't dance either – and yet she became the highlight of last year's Strictly Come Dancing. SuRie has shown that musical talent isn't enough to cut it. Next year, it's time for a novelty act. As Netta would put it: "Mbuck-mbucka-mh?" I’ve had … [Read more...] about Eurovision final 2018 live: Israel wins, after stage-invader interrupts UK song
Published June 12, 2015 Wow, can you believe our bar guide is five years old already? That means, in just 15 years, it will be old enough to go drinking downtown. And it’ll definitely know all the best places when it does. Over the last few weeks, we sent our team (who previously could have been described as “fresh-faced and intrepid”, but are now more “grey-faced and shaking”) to grab a beer, people-watch, and take in the atmosphere of Reykjavík’s many downtown bars, and report back accordingly. In total, we went to just shy of fifty bars. This included a fresh look at all of the places we covered last year. And while that might seem like retreading old ground, downtown Reykjavík is actually a bar merry-go-round on which places are constantly opening, closing, changing spaces, changing floors, changing names, taking back a previous name, or even reviving a long-dead one. Bars here also regularly change hands, and when they … [Read more...] about THE GRAPEVINE’S BIG-ASS BAR GUIDE 2015!
