June is busting out all over...

... and so are Dan Stevens, Don Gilet and Alex Wyndham to name but three of the actors portraying fairly explicit homosexual acts in the recent airing by the BBC of The Line of Beauty, the Booker Prize winning novel written by Alan Hollinghurst. Adapted by Andrew Davies it goes even further than the recent drama Rome and the surreal comedy Nighty Night as the viewer can be left in no doubt as to what is actually going on. Is it just me or are the BBC becoming far more daring on the small screen whilst, at the same time, clamping down hard on their web sites? I suppose everyone needs to let off steam somewhere...

In other entertainment-related news, our friends from the Douglas Adams Continuum have netted a scoop by persuading Stephen Fry, a good friend of DNA, to take part in a live interview and webchat. Read all about it in their article.

As you can see, this packed edition of The Post has something for everyone. The 'Regulars' section is a little on the light side, however, probably due to the recent Bank Holiday. We have our annual fun with Eurovision and a look forward to the big sporting event starting a week this Friday - it's time to don my England/Nederland kit depending on the match!

With the school and summer holidays looming I expect many of you are already stocking up on books to read. Why not consider writing a review for the H2G2 Bookworms Club? I am sure they would be pleased to receive it and it could even be featured by us.

Finally, an appeal to all those of you who are good at drawing. The cartoon section is looking a little lean these days, so if any of you fancy trying your hand at producing some quality artwork with a comedic twist then do please get in touch with The Post Team. Obviously they should be within the guidelines for both The Post and the BBC (see above!).

Happy reading - see you in two weeks.
