Something strange is going on in Yorkshire. Taps drip, stairs creak, lights go wild and sea shells are showing up in the oddest places.  A well-meaning social worker is unceremoniously defenestrated and an ominous figure like something out of The Ring wrapped in a sari is haunting a young woman’s dreams.

Learn all this has to do with pensioner Tom Parfitt (Michael Palin) and why the folk song “Scarborough Fair” agitates him in our episode one recap of the mystery mini-series Remember Me.

British Actors You Should Know: Robson Green

As you are probably already aware, Grantchester has returned to PBS for a third season.  Hurrah for more of that vicar/detective male bonding!  (And if you've missed any of the season to date - yes, we have recaps. Check them out.)

But for those of you who may have only just now become familiar with actor Robson Green through his role as DI Geordie Keating, I’m here to enlighten you to the prolific and varied career this actor has built up over the past thirty years.

'The Great British Baking Show' Season 4 Episode 3: Bread Week

In this installment of our Great British Baking Show recaps, we follow our ten bold bakers as they attempt to “prove” their mastery of the bread making arts.

Bread week means Paul Hollywood is in the driver's seat, an intimidating dilemma to be sure. From chocolate bread and savoury plaited centerpieces to a mysterious German bun that no one ever heard of, our group knead their hearts out in pursuit of the Star Baker title!

The 2017 Glastonbury Festival is underway in Somerset in the Southwest of England. This five day event is a celebration of contemporary performing arts, but is particularly known for being a mecca for live music.

Of course most of us won’t be making the trip to this iconic festival. Whether it’s a lack of funds (I've read tickets are sold out anyhow) or an aversion to large crowds and mud, there are some films out there that bring the British live music experience directly to you. Hopefully one of the following selections can fill your Glastonbury void.
