TOP 10

Kaleidoscope's current Top 10 


The Lake District

My favourite piece of the planet and looking forward to getting back there later in September. How lucky the local people there are to have the fells on their doorstep every day!



Loving them this year! Trying very hard to identify what I see and using a very good app called Picture This. 


Thomas Newman's music

The genius movie music man -  from Phenomenon, The Horse Whisperer, Meet Joe Black, The Green Mile,

Road to Perdition  to  Finding Nemo, WALL-E, Revolutionary Road, Scent of a Woman, The Help,  Skyfall , 1917  

and, of course, The Shawshank Redemption, Newman has made movies greater for so long. I must listen to his music almost every day.


Nakhane (featuring - Anohni) - New Brighton

Loving this song - on the soundtrack for the Apple TV+ series Little America.


Covid Vaccine Rollout

Incredible achievement NHS - and still rolling. 


Alice Roberts

Catch everything you can by this academic, writer and broadcaster - one of the UK's best minds


The West Wing... again

Working my way once more through the best TV series ever made. What a fabulous screen writer Aaron Sorkin is and what a brilliant cast was brought together for the show.


James Martin

Really enjoy his cooking shows, especially his Saturday morning programme. Always makes the cooking look easy and interesting. Have learned a lot from watching him.


Louis Macneice's poems

Picked up my collection again the other day and yet again hooked. Something about his poems that hit to the heart.

Current, but constant , favourite is Meeting Point.


My New Electric Bike

Brilliant! That extra electric push goes to another level.
