Tobes is young, free, single and having a ball. Off. Surrounded by people for whom life seems to be oh so simple, Tobes' confidence is taking a beating from the girlfriend who's met someone else, the brother for whom football trumps family, the flatmate who's just not that into him and the doctor... who might have some more bad news. Growth is a modern-day story of fear, hope, denial, love, and loss. And of getting over it.

John Mayall was, as a child, influenced by such greats as Leadbelly, Albert Ammons, Pinetop Smith, and Eddie Lang. From the age of 13 he taught himself to play and develop his own style with the aid of a neighbour's piano, borrowed guitars, and secondhand harmonicas. John met his soulmate in Eric Clapton, who had quit the Yardbirds in favour of playing the blues. This historic union culminated in the first hit album for John’s band, the Bluesbreakers, and resulted in worldwide legendary status. A succession of great musicians defined their artistic roots under John's leadership, and he became well known for discovering new talent. As sidemen left to form their own groups, others took their places. Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood became Fleetwood Mac. Andy Fraser formed Free, and Mick Taylor joined the Rolling Stones. As Eric Clapton has stated, "John Mayall has actually run an incredibly great school for musicians."
A tribute to Davie Bowie.
Scottish pop icon and TV personality.

It's Susan Calman's tenth year in comedy and she's back with a brand new show. You may have seen or heard her on shows like QI, HIGNFY, News Quiz, Listomania or Mock The Week, now you have the opportunity to see her in person, life-size if you will. For information, Susan is taller than a borrower but shorter than the average thirteen-year-old child. The show? Well she's ready to create a storm, to set the record straight, to give it to the man (whoever he is.) Incidentally she would also like to be Batman. Ninety minutes of comedy that you will enjoy if you're over 16, like what she does, and won't be so drunk that she has to throw you out. Sounds like a terrible personal ad doesn't it? She also likes fine wine, kittens and walks along the beach. Seriously. It's going to be epic.

'?The Ventoux is a God of Evil, to which sacrifices must be made. It never forgives weakness and extracts an unfair tribute of suffering.' Roland Barthes Lance Armstrong's sacrifice to Mont Ventoux in the 2000 Tour de France was to gift victory to his fierce rival Marco Pantani in the greatest contest the mountain and the sport had ever seen. Marco Pantani's sacrifice was his own life just five years later. Both were plagued by allegations of doping throughout their careers - now one is revered, and the other disgraced. The mystical Mont Ventoux, having claimed the mental and physical health of many professionals before them, was their legendary battlefield.

In a bombed out building during the First World War in the French town of Ypres, two officers discover a printing press and create a newspaper for the troops. Far from being a sombre journal about life in the trenches they produced a resolutely cheerful, subversive and very funny newspaper designed to lift the spirits of the men on the frontline. Defying enemy bombardment, gas attacks and the disapproval of many of the top Brass, The Wipers Times rolled off the press for two years and was an extraordinary tribute to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming adversity.
