The only way I'll ever get to see this is if PBS shows it eventually, like it's done with so many other BBC programs of days past...

Thanks, Char. Even though we don't get it, it still looks good.

BBCAmerica broadcasts Graham Norton, even though he's mostly an unknown in the U.S. and most of his guests are UK-centric . . . and Steptoe did, after all, inspire Sanford & Son, so maybe there's a chance.

I usually get a message right away if that's the case. Instead I get this ...

"RealPlayer: Connection to server could not be established. You may be experiencing network problems."

Hmmm, no shit.

I thought it was my slower internet connection at the office, but I could get it at home either.

What a lovely surprise. Jason was on This Morning, This Morning, good excuse to ditch the ironing for a bit. He was talking Steptoe and the latest movie, dressed in blue and looking good.
