Dirk Gently : BBC 4 Tonight. Based on the novel Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams.

It didn't take long tonight to realise the shortening of the title wasn't going to be the only change to this classic novel from the late Douglas Adams, the script adapted (sorry butchered) into a comic single threaded mystery story loosely based on a combination of Arsenic and Old Lace 1944 and Police Squad, with a predictable outcome.

10 months ago I bought the this LG TV with the promise ("Everyone" but LG) that BBC Iplayer would be a future feature, 10 months later with 1000's of customers posts on / DigitalSpy and AVforums with the threat by some to go to the media. LG has finally admitted some liability (albeit with care) with a "Gesture of Goodwill" buy sending its customers another Brands (Humax) Freesat HD receiver as compensation.

Here you go, the impossible situation of third hand toxic smokers residue has been touted as the next world evil for your kids, your health and its now bordering on ludicrousness scaremongering drivel that the anti-smoking lobby are trying to palm off as science.
