"Love affair" is another one, as in "Gardening- BBC 4 examines the roots of a very British love affair"
Also getting tired of the never ending stream of formulaic no-budget biopics of washed up light entertainers. Please stop before they get to Richard Stilgoe.
Welcome- great user name btw. Are you named after the bank in The Sweeney that got robbed every week?
I've storyboarded a biopic of Jimmy Hill. You'll have to pray they stop before they make this:
Budget of £75, up from the £55 that will suffice for the Boy George one, because there's more old stuff to recreate. I present to you the life of Jimmy Hill.
Scene 1: Little boy bullied at school over his big chin.
Scene 2: Same boy being better than everyone else at football.
Scene 3: Same boy in a classroom looking studious. "Football's not enough.."
Scene 4: Young man playing football. Scores a goal then runs back to the halfway line doing a funny jump. Flash forward to him opening a wage packet and looking disappointed.
Scene 5: Slightly older now wearing a suit. Says "I don't normally agree with strikes, but.."
Scene 6: Sitting in a football directors' box watching seats being ripped out. He muses: "Time will tell! In the meantime, a good sharp shock...."
Scene 7: A linesman gets injured. He comes on and runs the line
Scene 8: He presents Match of The Day.
Scene 8a): Jimmy gets on a plane and says "I think it's better we see Apartheid for ourselves"
Scene 9: Some Scotch people are angry with him.
Scene 10: He has a row with someone from the BBC. "What do you mean pundit? I do the whole fucking show".
Scene 11: The Real Jimmy Hill watching this show on TV. And calling his real lawyer.
Still searching for a comedian to play Jimmy, preferable one who hasn't done much proper acting. The current favourite is:
Scene 12: Me getting paid my fee by the controller of BBC4. I look as disappointed as Jimmy did earlier.
