⛄ Home Alone 2 | Brick Scene
There are so many scenes I could have picked as is the case for the first film also, but the second film I have gone for the Brick Scene, as I usually end up on the floor laughing, with cramp and my face permanently contorted because I have laughed too much!
Blue Planet II ★★★★★
Channel: BBC One

Music: Hans Zimmer
BBC + Attenborough + Nature = Incredible Documentary.
This winning formula proves to be a hit once again as the national treasure and tireless naturalist Sir David Attenborough narrates Blue Planet II. Blue Planet II is the sequel to the marine documentary Blue Planet which was made 16 years previous, winning both a BAFTA and Emmy. In 2001, the series was described as “the first ever comprehensive series on the natural history of the world’s oceans”, and it featured marine life and behaviour, never before been filmed.

Sherlock Holmes 130th Anniversary 🕵️
The Man Who Never Lived and Will Never Die…
It has been 130 years since the famous master detective Sherlock Holmes appeared in Beeton’s Christmas Annual, his first appearance in print. A Study in Scarlet, the first work of Arthur Conan Doyle in his detective series, marks the beginning of the hugely successful series that has spanned many television, film and stage adaptations. The final novel that Conan Doyle had published, His Last Bow, also celebrates its centenary anniversary later this month (18th). Although there is some historical debate as to what the exact anniversary date is (between 21st November and 1st December), let’s just celebrate the famous detective through this tribute post!
Famous for donning a deerstalker hat when cases took him into the countryside, his mind palace where he collected and stored facts and information, his catchphrases, and his fantastical skills of deduction, Sherlock Holmes is the nation’s favourite detective, and his character has continued to survive and thrive for over one hundred and thirty years, a statistic that not many other characters can claim to match!
