Damn Mr Neil Buchanan and his wretched Art Attack program with its attractive and "easy to make" models of tropical islands and fantasy castles and diaries with pictures of parrots of them. I've had to buy your book and subscribe to the Disney Channel and even try to make the model of a tropical island using cardboard, newspaper and PVA glue. By the way, I have to tell you that the cling film looks rubbish, and the best way to create the vague impression of waves is to use PVA glue.
So, yes, it's time to welcome back Now Broadband TV into the Ordinary Gweilo household (only way to get the Disney Channel, you see). The new decoder box is smaller, there are more channels, and I can record stuff (which other people claimed I could do before, but honestly I couldn't). On the other hand, I have to say that BBC Prime is fairly poor stuff - old sitcoms, old drama series, old quiz shows, old chat shows, but it's only HK$35 per month. Mind you, Fashion TV for HK$6 a month might be a better proposition.
