THE MURDERER HAS BEEN REVEALED and what a plot twist it was (I'm talking about Easteneders just to clarify, SUCH an exciting week!) and the TV listings weren't the only exciting thing either, I had the chance to spend two days working as a runner on the set of a short history documentary in Edinburgh this week which was fantastic. I had an absolute blast and learnt a lot about the film industry at the same time however I'm hoping to do a post on my time on set next week so for now, onto the TV highlights:
15/02/15 - I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse
I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse is a new reality TV show which I was very intrigued by. The show follows a group of 'survivors' who have to keep themselves alive during a 'zombie apocalypse'. The team were given challenges to find necessary supplies like food and bedding while avoiding the killer zombies. It was very different to anything I'd watched before but I really rather enjoyed it!
15/02/15 - The Casual Vacancy
The adaptation of J.K. Rowling's adult novel has arrived and I love it! The Dicken's style novel follows the dramatic events that unfold in the peacful town of Pagford following the death of Barry Fairbrother which opens a casual vacancy on the town council. I was really intrigued as to how the book would translate on TV but it works very well, it's quite dark and is more modern than I was expecting but that's certainly no bad thing. However, like in the book, there are a lot of characters and it gets a bit hard to keep track of who is who but I'm sure that will get easier as the series progresses
18/02/15 - The Great Comic Relief Bake Off
Moving away from Eastenders, there was a great feature on BBC Breakfast on Monday morning - which you can watch here - about a little boy called Billy Byron who's name has been borrowed by his favourite author, Michael Morpogo, as the name of the hero in his new book. Billy made an appearance on the Breakfast sofa where he received a video message from Michael which made for a lovely, cheery piece. It definitely brightened my Monday morning!
What an excellent week of television it has been! Next week will have to do a lot to top it although The Oscars, The Brits and the Broadchurch finale are on so I'm not ruling it out just yet!
Did you watch anything good this week?
Hope you've all had a lovely weekend!
Lots of love,
