TOP 10

Kaleidoscope's current Top 10 


The Lake District

My favourite piece of the planet and looking forward to getting back there in early May if the current lockdown can ease and travel/stay is OK. How lucky the local people there are to have the fells on their doorstep for a daily walk!



The best show on TV and has been for a while - funny and real.


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.



It's back - what a relief! Birdsong, budding trees and bushes, early flowers in bloom... Wonderful!


Covid Vaccine Rollout

Incredible achievement NHS - and still rolling. Getting my jab went as smooth as silk.


Alice Roberts

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


Celeste's New Album - Not Your Muse

Brilliant! A tremendous range of songs from a top, top talent. And catch her song , Hear My Voice , on the inspiring Aaron Sorkin film  The Trial of the Chicago 7


Line of Duty

BBC TV's police drama sensation is back and better than ever.  Not to be missed!
