I think I used to smiley - drool for Hywel Bennet. Looking him up on IMDB that was probably either in Doctor Who in 1965 or in Romeo and Juliet in 1967 (most likely the latter).

I have watched quite a lot of horror films, and TCM stands out for me for two reasons. Firstly, because it takes a set of hateable idiots and makes me fear for them anyway, just because what happens to them is so awful. And secondly, because it is one of those horror films that starts with zero budget, zero industry good will, basically no resources at all, and still manages to come out with something worth remarking on. That's more than you can say for some $100 million budget blockbusters.

Heiner Geissler

Can't find him on the BBC, but his Wiki entry has already been updated.

A bit of a local hero as he came from around these parts and was a good speaker.
