The BBC Have Rescued The Weekend!!!

I have just made the most wonderful discovery. I don’t know how it escaped my notice before now. I went out for a walk earlier and came home and was very pleased to find an old movie called “Baby Boom” starring Diane Keaton. Then I started flicking through the scheduling to see if there is anything else worth watching this weekend.


Well…to my absolute delight, it was up there on the screen. At 3:45pm tomorrow – that is Sunday 27th December – BBC1 will be broadcasting the greatest film ever made – ever! Ever ever!

The film with the biggest heart lifting, heart warming, heart singing factor. The movie that captures spunk, courage, conviction in the most challenging of situations but sets it to one of the best musical scores of all time.

If you have plans for tomorrow afternoon – cancel them. Make yourself comfy on the sofa, get yourself some snacks and drinks (it’s the BBC remember so there will be no commercial breaks for three hours!) Prepare to be not just entertained, but to be inspired. Prepare to have your spirits soaring – and to find an uncontrollable urge to want to sing out and possibly even stand up and twirl during the epic “Do-Re-Mi”.

I know it’s been a tough year, and the weekend has been a disappointment to many – but now all that will be forgotten for three hours. The sensational Julie Andrews is on hand to give you the best possible finale to the weekend. 3:45pm Sunday BBC1 – “The Sound Of Music” – how big is the smile on my face right now!!! Thank you so much Beeb!!!

Don’t even try to call me Jack – my phone will be on silent!

    1. I have no idea how many times I have seen it – perhaps one hundred? – but yesterday from the moment it started to the final note, I was riveted. I enjoyed every scene, every song, and it felt so good, my heart was lifted again and again. What a movie!!!!!!!!

    1. Well done Greg! It is an utter joy of a film! Most films can’t hold my attention for much more than half an hour. I end up reading a book or checking emails while I am watching them. But for The Sound Of Music – I am glued to the screen for almost three hours and my heart leaps for joy! πŸ™‚

    1. There are very few movies that can impart so much joy and leave you knowing what is right – and set it all to a phenomenal heart lifting score!


    1. Not many can capture a story about escaping the Nazi regime and make it one of the most joyful, heart-lifting and beautiful movies ever to grace the screen. I don’t know how many times I have seen it Mark – but if it was over 100 times it would not surprise me – and I still want to sing along and watch every minute.

        1. I watched it many times as a child – my friends and I used to watch it together and learn the words.

          But it was when I started working in nursing care with patients who had terminal illness that I was exposed to it again – I think it was on in the lounge at least once a week. It was the absolute favourite film. We would sing along with patients who just loved it.
