What advice, recommendations and the like do you have? From new series, Netflix binges and great reads to ways to stay physically sharp and mentally sane

I've been watching a few episodes of The Sweeney and The Professionals - to counteract the over-emphasis on good hygiene, safe distancing and social etiquette in this current Covid-19 lock-down environment.

It's been great watching the criminals getting bashed into paling (or steel wire) fences, thrown over galvanised iron rubbish bins and splintery wooden crates and boxes (containing various produce) and then having to face the harsh interviewing techniques of Jack Regan or Bodie in the interview rooms with a few genuine looking cuts and bruises on their faces.

Good old-fashioned proper lock-down entertainment I say.

For those in the UK, a really interesting film on tv tonight.

The Masque of The Red Death on Talking Pictures @ 10.00 pm.

Not a masterpiece but entertaining and extremely apt for the current situation. Set in medieval times, a heartless ruler terrorises the local peasantry whilst using his castle as a refuge against the Red Death plague that stalks the land.

Made in 1964 and directed by Roger Corman. Based on stories of Edgar Allan Poe and, like much of Corman's work, made on the cheap - in a strange way, that serves to give the film ''his feel'' and make it all the more watchable.

Stars Vincent Price in one of his best roles and Jane Asher, the then squeeze of Paul McCartney. An outstanding supporting performance as the cunning dwarf Hop Toad from Skip Martin - the greatest actor you've never heard of.

Bit of a coincidence - only just finished rewatching Brideshead revisited and the wife mentioned that fact.  Have never seen her in anything else, apart from Death at a Funeral.
