Rebus’ vs. ‘Rebus: The Classic Crime Drama

Fans of UK TV abroad can choose their preferred incarnation of Ian Rankin’s famous creation.

Asked what he thought of Hollywood’s treatment of his novels, James M. Cain used to point at his bookshelf. “They haven’t done anything to my books,” he would say. “They’re right there on the shelf”. Ian Rankin is reputedly less sanguine about ITV’s adaptations of his ‘Inspector Rebus’ novels, although the series have their fans.

HyperNormalisation: It’s worth your time

Burke And Him

We live in TV heaven. ‘Friends’ loops endlessly on terrestrial channels, and even the most obscure 70s and 80s children’s shows are finding new audiences via YouTube. But documentaries like ‘HyperNormalisation’ are less likely to enjoy an extended afterlife. Have you tried to view John Berger’s ‘Ways Of Seeing’ or Jonathan Miller’s ‘The Body In Question’? These were state-of-the-art productions, yet now they exert their influence only indirectly, via the memories of their original viewers or spin-off publications.

University Challenge: Watch it on TVMucho

Danger Mouse: A rejuvenated rodent reappears

The Return Of Danger Mouse: A rejuvenated rodent reappears on UK TV abroad

The turnover in children’s TV is brutal. Last season’s must-see becomes this year’s schedule filler, and this season’s favourite character is likely to end up in the pile with next year’s remaindered merchandising tie-ins. But it wasn’t always so. The 70s and 80s kids who guzzled the original run of ‘Danger Mouse’ had been raised on warmed-up post-war leftovers like ‘Champion The Wonder Horse’, ‘Casey Jones’ and — least appetizing of all — ‘Andy Pandy’, 26 episodes of which were shot in 1952 and then left on heavy rotation for an incredible 18 years. They were in desperate need of something new.
