“What’s going on? Democracy is going on!” The US elections are never quite as much fun as you’d like, mostly because the whole business of declaring the results is very boring and just involves David Dimbleby reading out a handful of states every half hour, rather than all the fun of hapless returning officers, not to mention the fact the Beeb are always in a cupboard and nobody knows who they are, which we don’t like. In addition we can’t have a repeat of the best moment of last time as Gore Vidal’s dead. Nevertheless, we’re staying up regardless because it’s bloody big news, we like Dave having six hours to kick back and hang loose and, er, some of the pundits are quite bewitching, even if they’re evil Republicans. Especially if they’re evil Republicans. Sorry.

Creamguide's Pick of the Day
“I remember when players used to celebrate with a light ale after the game!” We’ve still got the fortieth anniversary documentary on an old tape somewhere, but we certainly can’t get enough of old football so we’re really looking forward to this. Some of this you’ll doubtless have seen before but it’s always a treat to see again, and it’s worth celebrating too because the ratings are virtually the same now as they were twenty or thirty years ago which certainly isn’t the case with most shows. Some new stuff promised too, including an interview with theme tune composer Barry Stoller.
