chani_atreides asked about the following -


Two Thousand Acres of Sky is a BBC drama that tells the story of single mum Abby Wallace, who escapes her inner city London lifestyle with her two children to a small Scottish village. The local Council has decided to close the Isle of Ronansay primary school. It has only three pupils and needs five to stay open. They decide to advertise for a family with two children to come and live on the island and run a Bed and Breakfast. Abby spots the appeal but needs a husband in order to fulfil the required criteria for living on Ronansay. She persuades best friend Kenny Marsh to pretend they're married and accompany her and her two children to the island. However, keeping up the charade isn't easy.

I love Scotland especially the west coast and the islands. This programme was filmed at Port Logan and three years ago as part of my holiday in Scotland I stayed overnight in the village. It was SO beautiful and quiet.


 



Chance Harper,
D. B. Sweeney played the role of Chance Harper in the American TV show Strange Luck, which was shown in the UK in 1996. He is a freelance photographer afflicted with a bizarre tendency to always be in the wrong place at the right time. As Chance himself says, "If I go to a restaurant, somebody chokes. If I walk into a bank, it gets robbed." Harper's strange luck began when, as a small child, he was the sole survivor of a plane crash that killed everyone else aboard, including both of his parents.I really loved this show but it unfortunately it was cancelled after 17 programmes.

Chance Harper in his overcoat looks very much like someone I really liked when I was at art college. We used to follow each other around, wait for each other to go for dinner and sit on the next table and smile at each other. We did this for seven months and never spoke to each other apart from ‘Hello’!  Strange I know, but we both got an attack of shyness. I promised myself that if I ever saw him again I would talk to him. I bumped into him or the first time since then, about four years ago in the town centre. He looked as lovely as he ever did and we talked for an hour. It was so strange that we both knew so much about each other but we had never spoken. He had a nice voice too.


hg2g, (Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy)I love Dougalas Adams’ sense of humour. I enjoyed the TV series that was shown on BBC and I have read the first three books in the ‘five part trilogy’. I wasn’t quite as keen on the 2005 film as I didn’t think that they cast the right actors for the parts but they did stay quite close to the book.


Ram
is just on my list of interests as I was naming lots of different characters from The Tribe.
(For those of you that don’t know!) The Tribe is an Apocalypse fiction. It is set in a hypothetical near-future in which all adults have been wiped out by a deadly virus, leaving the children of the world to fend for themselves. The show's focus is on an unnamed city inhabited by tribes of children and teenagers.
I enjoy it because it reminds me of the fashions, makeup and hairstyles of the early 80's when I was an art student.





Redheads
I love red headed males. I also love gingers, strawberry blonds and auburns. I love the look of a red head with eyes that are so dark brown that you can’t see the pupils and a face full of freckles. I love the look of a strawberry blond with piercing blue eyes, with skin so pale and eyelashes so blond that you can hardly see them.
Sorry I’m drooling now!

Hyperdrive
is a BBC science fiction comedy, set in 2151 it follows the crew of HMS Camden Lock as they stumble through their heroic mission to protect British interests in a changing galaxy.I don’t know many people who watched this programme but I really enjoyed it.



British Sign Language
I’ve been studying BSL part time at college for six years. I decided to do it for a few different reasons
1. It looked beautiful when the interpreter is signing on the TV.
2. I thought it would be a good way to keep my brain active.
3. To meet lots of new people

4. I enjoy learning new things

5. I’d always wanted to do it

I went along to classes and thought I would just see how I went on. If I passed, OK, if I didn’t, OK. I passed the first year and I am still going!
