James Hillier having a bit of a moment at this year’s TT. This is why I love motorcycle racing so much. It’s simultaneously exciting and scary, especially if you ride a bike yourself.
The DVD is of the quality we’ve come to expect from Bill Bailey, with the usual verbal nonsense interspersed with musical items utilising a large variety of instruments, both ancient and modern, notably the oud, a middle-eastern instrument similar in appearance to the lute. I won’t spoil your fun by listing all the musical treats on the DVD, but I will say that we’re treated to the usual blending of genres. If you really must know, I’m sure you’ll find clips on YouTube. Personally, I’d just buy the DVD and enjoy the experience on a proper-sized screen.
If I had to level any criticism of the show at all, it would have to be that it’s way too short. This is not to say that you don’t get your money’s worth – you most certainly do – but only that however long the thing is, it’s not enough.
There’s something fascinating about time-lapse photography. This is just a simple video of me watching a bit of TV in the evening, but the accelerated time makes even this rather mundane activity take on a whole new life.
