Will watch it in bed on i-player (seeing as I now have a laptop) and the lounge where the tv is resembles Siberia
John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.

Yeah, but watching it on TV is like..... an event :P . A DVD you can watch anytime.

I wonder whether more people will become interested in the Keats-Fanny story as a result of its TV premiere. I expect the forum to be flooded by Monday :lol: .

I'll believe that when I see it. Forums are old hat really, much as it pains me to say, Facebook and twitter are where it's at these days, the days of internet forums are long past.

Was it dubbed or did it have subtitles?

Dubbed - as almost all English-language films are for German audiences.
