Blimey. Would you look at that. Classic kids show Knightmare is being turned into a live show, which is going to premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August. Original producer and creator Tim Childs has apparently even given it his blessing. In case you need a reminder, here you go:
Hey, but guess what. They need cash, apparently. They're trying to raise £6,000 on Kickstarter to fund the project, although they're already halfway there. Give them some cash and maybe they'll let you wear the helmet. Isn't that exciting?
It's time for our regular look at the TV that the BFI is showing, this time in the month of July 2013. This month, as well as the conclusion of the celebration of Doctor Who, which for some reason ends with the seventh Doctor's Remembrance of the Daleks…

About the blog
This is a UK media blog with daily news, views, exclusive reviews and good conversation. There's a bit of a bias towards the latest and greatest US TV, but we also cover UK TV ranging from new Doctor Who to old Z Cars, and BBC4 to S4C.
Add in film, theatre, art, books, events and competitions and you've (hopefully) got officially the fourth best blog on the web for media lovers. Oh yes, and there's The Carusometer, the ultimate guide to quality TV.

I'm Rob Buckley, a freelance journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of, although you might have heard me on Radio 5 Live's Saturday Edition. I've edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for trade magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider and the equally short-lived Death Ray and Filmstar magazines; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it "web site for urban hedonists" The Tribe. I'm freelance now and have contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network and TV Scoop.
