It's that time again when the city gets really busy – we all get back to our normal working lives, which of course in Brighton and Hove means making sure we're out as much as possible enjoying the brilliant music, comedy, art, theatre, dance and events the city has to offer. This month is the Magners Paramount Comedy Festival as well as the Brighton Comedy Fringe Festival. We know Sussex is home to a range of festivals of all varieties – and this weekend you can celebrate the joy of the British apple at Applefest at Middle Farm. See music news (p27). This Saturday the Ocean Rooms celebrates its 11th birthday – see our club listings on page 31 – and tonight Alan Clayson plays at our sister venue Latest Music Bar. Read Nick Aldwinckle's interview with Alan in music news (p27). Andrew Kay is excited about Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo coming to town soon. He met up with principal ballerina Robert Carter; read the interview on page 23. Also this week, Andrew has been dining at the delectable Chaula's in Lewes, but what did he make of those elephant ears? (p16) I have been dying to try a lazy Sunday brunch and bloody mary at Home Cafe; now the Queens Park restaurant/cafe is taking party bookings, so you can enjoy their home cooking at night as well as in the day (p15). You might have noticed that Halloween is looming. In preparation, I've been out on a ghost walk around Brighton (p11) and Phil Mills has been finding out how the police plan to tackle the hoards of zombies they're expecting to hit the streets (p13). If you're feeling brave, we've got some fantastic Halloween prizes; three sets of gory science kits each worth £75. Find out how to enter on page 15.

Guests included customers, friends and many local business people who were greeted by owners: Bernadette Fitzsimons and Freya Huntley. The variety of exclusive and creative designer ranges on offer impressed guests, as did the chic shop interior. Especially exciting was the Chrome Hearts range, favoured by celebs, whose only other UK outlet is Selfridges in London. Their representative was at the launch featuring some diamond set frames worth about £3,000. One lucky person won themselves their own pair of Chrome Hearts frames following the prize draw, albeit from a slightly less expensive range! Even though they have only been open since the end of August, Frames in the Lanes is already making its mark with those discerning customers who want unique and individual eyewear.

Bruno Allard, UK managing director of Ligne Roset, said of the launch: “Brighton is one of the most exciting towns for Ligne Roset in the South East - the emphasis on culture and design within the area makes it the perfect location for our international Jonathan Hill (graphic designer), Amanda Vogato (fabric consultant) design brand as we expand in the Jonathan Vogato (Mode Build) UK.

Swanning around Alison Swann is learning how to get hot in the kitchen once again

Burning love The kitchen is working. There was, in the end, no dramatic explosion of light and throwing back of helpful friend’s body as he pushed two bits of electric wire together. No, after much jigsawing of kitchen pieces – meant for a flat somewhere else – it all came together. And like many things that have seemed an insurmountable challenge for many years, with a bit of focus, it wasn’t that bad. There was a fair amount of swearing and cajoling, as I tried not to look upset as a hole was made in my freshly-painted bedroom wall, to push the oh-sonecessary wire through the party wall to the back of the hob. I hate Sarah Beeny, she made me think this was all going to be so easy. Anyway. She didn’t live on microwave meals and put up with washing up rancid cups in the bath for as long as I did. I am a survivor.

I’d even been clever enough to get a rabbit from up the road in Kelso, freshly shot that morning and do a bit of a Clarissa Dickinson-Wright by chopping it up, digging out the stray pellets and making a proper scrummy country pie. The highlight of living in the ‘boredoms’, as my ex ended up referring to the land betwixt Edinburgh and ‘The Border’, was roasting a hogs head on a spit, made especially for the occasion by the local blacksmith – I am not making this up. This was all done in honour of a large contingent of London friends and family visiting us on our extended living adventure up north. The next day, as everyone came to from the nights revellery, our Staffordshire bull terrier proudly walked around with the hogs skull in her mouth. Very Lord of the Flies. So in this flashback of memory, I knew I had once been ready, willing and quite able to cook. So Delia and Nigella nicely primed, I set about the task. Something simple, I’m thinking, a baked potato? No, not that simple. That’s not cooking that’s heating. So once again, I made a pie – this time my favourite pie, artichoke. I even made the pastry, which wasn’t a total success. But it held the contents together and that was the best I could ask for. As the eggs, garlic, Parmesan and artichokes all fused together in the heat of the oven I looked over it like a newborn baby. And cracking through the hot shell of pastry to take a delicious taste I thought, I’ll take care of this skill, it’s a good one.

“I was then faced with a pot of slop of which Blackadder’s Baldrick would have been proud” Finally, the oven gently fanned into life and warmth started to fill the kitchen. I celebrated by making the biggest stew known to man or beast. This was done without the help of any idea of what I was doing or even a recipe. I was then faced with a pot of slop of which Blackadder’s Baldrick would have been proud. I had clearly been out of the game too long, ready meals are not just bad for your physical health, they clearly have an effect on your brain too, as I had clearly forgotten how to cook. Blimey. A quick recky of the dusty enclaves of my bookshelves and I discovered some old school Delia and a bit of Nigella, and started to remember the bit about portion sizes, buying the right ingredients and not just shoving it all in together and hoping for the best (clearly a microwave mentality). Slowly the closed down portions of my mind came back to life. I remembered, only a few years ago, living in a farm house in the Scottish Borders and having a rambling expanse of kitchen over-stuffed with ingredients and tools with which to make merry, whilst sipping on a bit of local brew.

Dani’s diary

Sandra Omo warns models starting out to watch out for fraudulent agencies

Dani wants to know why happiness doesn’t breed in the same way as anger

Dear Models, There is a new wave of fraudulent agencies in town. These wacky agencies, as I call them are only out there to rip you off with registration fees, and make money off you by selling you inferior portfolios by amateur photographers. I have realised models new to the business are prone to fall prey to these fraudulent agencies. These agencies will never get you jobs because they do not have the expertise and connections to do so. You might never hear from them again after you have paid the required money. So be warned and beware of such agencies. Sincerely, Omo This is a notice I have recently posted in all my blogs to warn models of the new wave of fraudulent agencies in town. It may sound like news to you, but it’s no news to models. The number of advertisements put up by these agencies amazes me. I am not the only one, as this was what we spent the last casting I attended talking about. Last week, I decided to apply to some of these adverts so I could experience it and tell it. I applied to different ones and as I expected, they replied immediately saying I had the exact look (as they tell everyone) they are looking for and invited me to their office. The first appointment I went for was a little office situated in Oxford Street with two people in it. Believe me, all they tried to do was sell me a head shot on the spot for £20 and a portfolio for £350. The guy spent over forty minutes trying to convince me to buy this portfolio. He even went as far as telling me he had jobs already and the only thing stopping him from giving me the jobs was my lack of portfolio. Yes, I said I had none as it was the first thing he asked me when I arrived. That’s how they know if you are a good target or not.

“They tried to sell me a head shot on the spot for £20 and a portfolio for £350“ After all the talk, I promised to come in the next day and pay for a photo shoot, and he promised to hold the job for me and send me to the clients immediately. I knew it was all lies. The next day I returned, but this time with my book. He was shocked and uncomposed all through this meeting. At last he said, “Okay, we will give you a call when we have a job for you.” What? Did he not say yesterday that he already had a job for me and the only hindrance was that I had no book? I reminded him of this, to his embarrassment, but he quickly bailed out by saying, “you know there is no guarantee with clients as they change their mind often.” Yes, they always hide under the fact that there is no guarantee in the modelling industry. Every other appointment I went for was the same – a complete rip off. Some kept calling asking for registration fees. These people should go to jail, or is ripping people off no longer a criminal offence? It’s so sad because a lot of people are falling prey to this and it looks as though there is nothing they can do about it even after they find out they have been ripped off because after all, there is no guarantee in modelling. This is not about to stop as there are more and more agencies springing up in every nook and cranny of major cities. The majority of them do not even have offices as the internet has made it easier to carry out such acts. The truth is this is not new, there have always been agencies ripping people off, but the rate at which they are multiplying, calls for alarm. Then that does not mean there are no genuine agencies out there, even if they may be small or new. The question here is how do we then differentiate the real from the frauds? 8 latest 7

Anger breeds, along with fear and being miserable. So why doesn’t happiness? I have been reading that through meditation you can train yourself to be a happier person. The idea struck me as good when I first read it, but I worry that you only train yourself to ignore those things that make you unhappy. Therefore you do not deal with them and spend the rest of your life living out of one happy box in your head while the rest of your mind fills up with sad boxes. Nothing I am doing at the minute makes me feel happy. And I am starting to worry that it never will. I worry that I will never find a job that satisfies me. I will never find an outfit that I feel good in. I will never have the confidence to do all the things I want to and I will never find a love that exists only in books. These silly things are eating me up. I spend all day trying to work out what it is that I need to do to feel happy? I am starting to think true happiness is a myth. Having asked a couple of people what they think makes them happiest they have come up with three different choices. Money, food and dancing. I would have to throw love in there for good measure.

“Some of the wealthiest people are unhappy. And money can buy you everything – bar true love” The thing that worries me most is that I equate all these things with happiness and spend all my free time wondering if they will ever fall upon me, but also pondering at the same time whether would make any difference at all? I believe that these things would make me feel happy, but I have no proof of them doing so. Some of the wealthiest people are unhappy. And money can buy you everything – bar true love. So maybe the answer to happiness is to have someone to love and be loved by in return. Perhaps the phrase: ‘Make Love Not War‘ should be taken slightly more seriously. Perhaps Jane Austen had the balance right. Someone to love, enough money to live comfortably on and good friends. What more do you really need in life? Excessive amounts of anything become boring and monotonous. And maybe the same can be said for happiness, as it is always very short lived. When I was at school – having grown out of the idea of being a famous actress – when anyone asked what I wanted to be when I grew up? I would answer: “happy“ because it was true and still is. The only difference now is that I realise happiness doesn’t instantly hit you in the face when school finishes, the working week finishes or when you get paid. Happiness is something you spend so long waiting for that when you feel slightly less than miserable you think you must be doing something right. I have always firmly believed that true love makes you happy. The only difference now is that I don’t believe true love exists. So happiness is there, we do have a reason for all wanting to feel that way. We just never will because the only way to feel it is a figment of someone’s imagination.

Celebcity with Jo Brooks

Soho stars Jo takes a bite of the Big Apple for some serious A-list star spotting over dinner and drinks This week I’m writing to you from the Big Apple where I’m hanging out in Soho, drinking in the atmosphere and spotting celebs by the dozen. As always Manhattan was heaving with A-listers – Brangelina were in town at the Waldorf Astoria, where Angie was attending the premiere of her latest film, The Changeling and Brad was taking advantage of the tunnels running under the posh hotel. Paps after the family were thwarted when Brad left the hotel by one of the subterranean tunnels, surfacing in a church at the end of the block, which he left by the back door, getting straight into a blacked out SUV, managing to arrive unspotted at MOMA for a visit with Pax, Shiloh and Maddox – not just a pretty face that man. Breakfasting in The Bowery Hotel on my very first morning (currently the hottest Alison Moyet place to stay in NYC), I spotted Drew Barrymore who had just flown into town – allegedly visiting with her new boyfriend, Gossip Girl actor Ed Westwick, 12 years her junior. Also feeding their (rather hairy) faces were indie boys The Killers. High celeb count but I have to say the too cool for school restaurant looked just like a Harvester to me. The eggs were good though. Across town I heard that Madonna (in town for her Sweet and Sticky tour) was also breakfasting – but with Britney (promoting her new album) at old school diner, The Waverley. That night we ate at the restaurant in The Mercer hotel where the roll call of celebs included Russell Brand and Kate Moss – we spotted neither but enjoyed sashimi and a lovely bottle of Tattinger (we had to – it helps the jetlag). However on the way back to my hotel I walked past the ex-Moss lover Jamie Hince who was moping along the street dressed in regulation shades and leather jacket. Leaving the hotel, I shared a lift with musical legend and a massive favourite of mine, Alison Moyet who looked rather miserable – and I knew why next morning when I saw her leave on her tour bus at 6.30am. It turns out Tattinger doesn’t cure jetlag. Tonight is going to be all about Sussex – as the plan is to catch Nick Cave’s gig and then have dinner at Norman Cook’s gastropub, The Spotted Pig. Home sweet home.

CANCER (JUNE 22–JULY 22)

LIBRA (SEP 23–OCT 22)

CAPRICORN (DEC 21–JAN 19).

According to my research in Asian astrology, to Arien health matters are all in the head. That could mean you are a hypochondriac, something serious or a bad hair day.

Cancer’s connections are awful, or offal as they are the lungs and the heart. Give up cigarettes, fatty foods, sugar and generally having fun right now, you know it makes sense

How research can make one laugh, Libra it would seem is the internal sexual organs and the kidneys. If one were to believe that would mean no bubbly and no babies, over to you.

Legs and upper part. The whole upper part? What a raw deal. Everything above the waist? Some things change with time, dropping from upper to lower or not rising to upper any more

TAURUS (APR 21–MAY 21)

LEO (JULY 23–AUG 22)

SCORPIO (OCT 23–NOV 21)

AQUARIUS (JAN 20–FEB 19)

For Taurus it’s the face, right eye of the male and left eye of the female, mouth, tongue, teeth, upper food pipe. You know, sometimes I wish I had never started something.

More offal for Leo the lion with stomach, spleen, pancreas and liver. Yeuk, no seriously yeuk. Next week I am going to research your astral flowers or fragrances.

Oh my giddy aunt, I can hardly bare tell sensitive Scorpio this. Here goes, if I do it quickly it will be less offensive: large intestine, external sexual organs, anus. No that didn’t help.

This is going to offend an Aquarian who believes, so beware. Legs and lower part. I know so dull for our most fanciful astral friends and nothing above the waist never mind neck.

GEMINI (MAY 22–JUNE 21)

VIRGO (AUG 23–SEP 22)

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 22–DEC 20)

PISCES (FEB 20–MAR 20)

For Gemini it’s the ears, lower food pipe, arms and wind pipe. The conjunction of arms and wind pipe does not convey happy thoughts so Geminis beware.

For Virgo it’s the small intestine. For a star sign so often full of woe it’s perhaps symbolic that their astrally weak organ is so full of… food. Come on what did you think I would say?

Crumbly old Sagis get off lightly with hip and hip joints. Lightly in terms of embarrassment maybe but in terms of potential discomfort… ? Be brave, I am getting a bad feeling about all this.

Feet, left eye of the male and right eye of the female. What if you are Pisces with Taurus rising? To be frank it all sounds a little fishy. I am off to Bardsley’s to read fortunes in chips.

Rachel Pegg discovers a spooky side to Brighton’s Lanes in the hunt for things that go bump in the night

Night watch Next time you walk through Meeting House Lane, watch out for icy cold hands trying to grasp at your waist. According to Brighton’s new ghost walker, the chilling hands belong to just one of the troubled souls who haunt the city’s famous shopping quarter. Now their stories are being brought back to life by Robert Marks, who has made a career out of telling spooky tales. Robert, a former expert ghost walker in York, has carefully researched the history of The Lanes and has picked out the most intriguing, terrifying and gruesome episodes. Up until this Halloween Robert is leading guiding tours of the phantom hotspots three nights a week. I joined him on a dark and rainy night to seek out the shadowy figures from Brighton’s past. The Lanes, he told me, are the oldest part of town and some believe the most haunted. Our journey began at Brighton Town Hall, built in 1830 on the site of the former Priory of St Bartholomew. Robert reported that skeletons have been found there, widely believed to be the bones of monks, some of whose spirits still stalk the earth. One of them, he revealed, was expelled for misbehaviour. “Legend has it there was a brother who got into a spot of bother with Communion wine. He narrowly escaped the dreadful fate of being walled up in the cellar. They decided he should be banished from the order and become shamed and ex-communicated “Apart from this one situation he’d led a decent life. He died shortly afterwards. He has been seen on many occasions in the cellars of Brighton and of some of the shops.” It’s thought that the monk is desperate to be reunited with his brothers and forgiven. “One lady looking through a consignment of diaries turned round to find herself face to face with the phantom friar," Robert said, and, turning his voice to a whisper: “There was no head inside the hood.”

“I had a feeling of being watched. It was all empty and there was a crucifix on every wall” The town hall is also thought to be haunted by the ghost of Chief Inspector Henry Solomon, who was bludgeoned with an iron poker in 1844 by John Lawrence, a carpet thief who had been apprehended when the building was still a police station. On to Old Steine, where Robert reckons an even more terrifying nomad can be seen, if you are unlucky. John Robinson was Brighton's version of the Scarlet Pimpernel – a benevolent stranger who rescued aristocrats from a savage end during the French Revolution. In the process, he killed three guards and a price was put on his head. He returned to Brighton before travelling to Persia and fought in the civil war, but ended up on the losing side and had his eyes burned out. After a period as a beggar in Tehran, he made it back to Brighton, where he died on the street. Since then a figure has been spotted lying on the ground. When passers-by get closer, they see the man has no eyes. One police officer was physically sick at the sight of his face. When he turned round to help, the figure had gone. Other stories involve a nun who was put to death after falling in love with a soldier and a man with ice cold hands who haunts a former guest

house in Meeting House Lane and sometimes gets a bit over-friendly with women visitors. Robert’s walk takes guests via haunted spots such as Dr Brighton’s, The Cricketers – where Graham Greene wrote Brighton Rock and which dates back to the 1540s – and the Druid's Head, site of a sacred ring of stones. Druids, Robert said, were an Iron Age tribal society who led brutal lives and made human sacrifices. When he first began leading ghost walks, Robert did not believe in the paranormal. Then he saw a ghost himself, and now is much less cynical. He said: “I started off being very much a sceptic. I do feel 90 per cent of the time, there is a logical explanation, but I can’t dismiss the grey area because I have done so much research and spoken to so many people who wouldn’t spin a yarn.” His most spooky experience was not in Brighton, but at a house he and his wife went to view in north Yorkshire. He said: “I had a very uncomfortable feeling of being watched. It was all empty and there was a crucifix on every wall. “A couple of days later this lady came in to do some cleaning. I was telling her we’d been there and she said, ‘My grandmother used to clean that house. You do know it's haunted?’” An actor and a paid up member of Equity, Robert certainly looks the part of a ghost watcher in his top hat and Victorian garb. He has previously appeared in A Touch of Frost, Emmerdale and Heartbeat. Robert recently featured on BBC South Today and on the back of that appearance has proposed an idea for a paranormal show to the BBC, who have expressed interest. While many people claim to have seen ghosts around Brighton, Robert said very few of the ghouls cause any harm. “Most spirits are quite benign. Most are quite friendly.” Some, he admits, can even be over friendly, like the Meeting House Lane ghost with the cold hands. Robert's ghost walks take place every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night up to and including Halloween and on Saturdays until Christmas. Meet at the Druid's Head in Brighton Place at 7.30pm.

George scores 

Street sweepers, graffiti cleaners and litter pickers carried out a major clean up of London Road. Brighton and Hove City Council launched the “deep clean” of the area last week following ongoing complaints that the area is an embarrassment as the gateway to Brighton. Council leader Mary Mears joined the cleaning mission. She said: “Everyone is working together to improve London Road.” A homelessness charity is to open a shop selling gifts made entirely from recycled and refashioned materials. The shop at the premises of Emmaus in Drove Road, Portslade, will have its ribbon cut by Maureen Heard, the longest serving volunteer at the Brighton and Hove branch of the charity, on Saturday 18 October at 2pm. The impact of students on life in Brighton and Hove will be discussed at a series of public meetings. The first will be held at Hove Town Hall on Friday 17 October from 2–4pm. For more information call 01273 290450.

Lisa Snowdon rates George Clooney nine and a half out of 10 in the bedroom department, she revealed when she popped into a Portslade-based radio station. The star of Strictly Come Dancing and Britain’s Next Top Model Lisa Snowdon made the revelation when she appeared on Southern FM’s Big Breakfast Show with Lynsey, Danny and Jack. She gave trio Lynsey, Danny and Jack the backstage gossip on the shows, plus insider information on dating one of the most fancied men in the world, Hollywood Alister George Clooney. In a candid interview, Lisa revealed to presenter Jack the Lad what it was like dating George. “It was a good time in my life, we had a laugh.” said Lisa, “It was a pretty normal relationship at times. Obviously when other megastars used to rock up that used to be a bit of a ‘pinch yourself’ moment.” When asked by Jack, on behalf of women listening in Sussex, how George was “in the sack” Lisa replied with a “nine and a half out of 10!” Jack the Lad said: “I’ve got a lot of respect for how open Lisa was in the interview. I felt bad turning down her request for a date though, but I’m a happily married

Seeds of change Brighton and Hove City Council leader Mary Mears on investing in the future I heard an amusing story the other day about a mother who was walking her son to school. He was dragging his feet and after some time the mother said: “Will you hurry up please?” The boy replied: “What’s the rush? It’s open ‘til 3pm.” This little exchange demonstrates just how clever, but sometimes mischievous, young people can be. They represent the future and so we must invest in their futures while helping them stay within the law. The Moulsecoomb Forest Garden and Wildlife Project is one example where the council aims to reduce anti-social behaviour by involving excluded pupils, who help run the garden, in worthwhile community projects. The produce grown is offered free to low income families and older people. At the same time, children learn about growing and eating healthy food and respect for their local environment. This week, we will be working with the police to tackle anti-social behaviour through an initiative called ‘Not in My Neighbourhood’. We’ll be doing things like truancy patrols, evening operations to make our streets safer, and carrying out a range of activities to keep our streets cleaner. To stop young people behaving anti-socially, it’s vital that we offer them an attractive alternative and another important initiative we’re working on is the proposed Falmer Academy. The proposal aims to offer young people a fresh approach to learning, flexible curriculum, up-to-date resources and state-ofthe art facilities to help raise standards of achievement among all students whatever their abilities. This week we will be considering the outcome of a consultation about turning Falmer High School into an Academy. In addition to offering the core subjects like Maths, English and Science, Entrepreneurship and Sport will be two specialisms which we hope will excite students about learning.

Volunteers needed Volunteers are needed to monitor the welfare of staff and prisoners at a high-profile prison. The independent monitoring board for Ford prison is looking for men and women to oversee goings-on at the facility. The board visits regularly, often unannounced, and reports to the Governor each month. Members have the power to come into the prison at any time, talk to anyone and look at anything except for private medical records. They monitor the day-to-day life of those who are detained and ensure that all relevant rules and conditions are followed. An appeal for volunteers was made in the summer and there was some interest but the board is still in need of new members. Volunteers should be openminded, caring, approachable, good listeners and communicators and committed to diversity, equality and human rights. No special qualifications are needed. The role requires about four half days a month. Contact the IMB Clerk at HMP Ford, Arundel, West Sussex, BN18 0BX. Call: 01903 663000

More than 60 extra police will be drafted in to work in Brighton and Hove to combat a night of terror. Halloween, for the vast majority, is a festival of ghoulish fun, but it can bring out the worst in a minority of teenagers. There were a number of arrests last year and cars and homes have been damaged by egg throwing, people have been hit by flower bombs and pensioners have been left cowering in their homes, terrified by door knocks and threatening yobs. City police Chief Inspector Bill Whitehead said officers won’t be kill-joys, but they will be adopting a robust approach to those intent on misbehaving on Halloween night, Friday, 31 October, and for the rest of that weekend. He said: “We will have between 60 and 70 extra officers on duty and we will be stopping and searching youngsters who we suspect are carrying eggs and flour. “Those we catch will be taking to their homes and their parents will be informed or, in more serious cases, they will be arrested. “Those who go round causing trouble can have a serious effect on their victims, especially the elderly, and we are urging everyone not to cold call at people’s homes.”

“Leaflets being distributed will carry a: ‘Don’t call here‘ sign, which people can stick on front doors or in windows”

Fundraising for a friend Members of the Metropolitan Police crack public order branch will be carrying their riot shields as they run in relays from London to Brighton to help in the fight against testicular cancer. The marathon event, on Thursday next week (23 October), is in aid of Jason Hussain, 21, from Brighton, who manages the Metropolitan Police Youth Diversion project. Jason was diagnosed with the cancer earlier this year and money raised by the run will pay for cancer equipment at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, where Jason is receiving treatment. Surgery failed and Jason recently completed a gruelling course of chemotherapy. His plight prompted an immediate pledge of help from the 21strong public order team. Jason, a national standard sprinter and former British Junior international, is coached by his line manager and international sprints coach Superintendent John Powell, who suffered the same problem 17 years ago. He suffered two relapses and ultimately needed a bone marrow transplant. He went on to raise several thousand for the cancer unit where he was treated. He said: “The shock of hearing Jason had the same problem as I did was miles worse than dealing with my own problem. “Jason and his family are close friends and the feeling of helplessness was devastating. But his prognosis has been very positive, and the hospital has been brilliant. “This charity event is a fantastic way to repay doctors and staff. It's impossible to appreciate the effort and resources that go into treating one patient unless you have been there yourself.“ Anyone wanting to sponsor the team should email john.powell2@met.police.uk

Inspector Whitehead said leaflets being distributed will carry a:“Don’t call here” sign, which people can stick on front doors or in windows. He said: “We want people to enjoy themselves but we recommend they attend organised parties. “We are gearing up and anyone misbehaving can expect a strong response from us.” For the first time police are getting involved in one of the UK’s biggest Halloween festivals, at Tulleys Farm in Turners Hill, Crawley, where more than 40,000 visitors are expected over 11 days, starting on Saturday 18 October. Police will have a stand at the event to offer advice and officers will take action if any youngsters step out of line. Sergeant Jo Webb, of the Sussex Police Neighbourhood Specialist Team based at East Grinstead, said: “This gives us a unique opportunity to support the local community and to interact with youths on a local level, while they are out having fun. “There is a serious message to this which is about enjoying Halloween in a sensible and safe way. “Our officers are there to engage with the public, but we will get involved in proactive policing at the event if the need arises. “It’s going to be an interesting experience and I have to admit this is the first time I have worked alongside zombies.” latest 7 13

A charitable win Seeing the thank you letter in a previous week’s issue made me feel rather guilty. I have been lucky enough to come up in your ‘In It To Win It’ draw a number of times, but have never thanked you, so I will do it belatedly now. The reason I try for these competitions is to make extra money for my favourite charity Macmillans Cancer Support. I always have books on sale in my porch (paperback novels) and when weather permits on a Saturday, have a garden sale. Not doing so well for them this year of course, because of our horrible summer!

Regular readers of this column (that’ll be you then Keith) will have noticed that there can seem to be a theme that runs through a lot of them. For over a year, we in the Bunker have banged on about how association football has been stripped of its roots as the game of the working man, a game that united communities and gave a sense of identity to the disenfranchised masses (stop me if I over romanticise 22 men kicking a bag of wind around). Over romanticising or not, what is clear is that the Gordon Gekko league of ‘greed is good, greed works’ created by Richard Scudamore is, like the false economy that built it, about to come crashing. The house of cards that is the basis of our present financial predicament, the unparalleled greed and for-now short-sightedness is, as we see banks collapse everyday, yet to hit football. But it will.

“So what will our clubs do when their fixed-rate loans expire and have to remortgage again?” Portsmouth are £60 million in debt. Michel Platini, president of UEFA has said that, if it came to a European debt league England would top it (being French he can’t admit that on the pitch we do so anyway). But he’s right. It happened in Italy in the ‘90s. The false economy of debt-football created an all-conquering empire. All empires collapse. Keith Harris (no, not that one unfortunately), the football economist, the man whose incompetent over-reaching wrecked the ITV Digital deal and cost league clubs a fortune has admitted that, like the banks that bankroll the Premier League, the foundations are built on sand. Banks, rescued by the government they may be, have neither the wherewithal nor the confidence to lend. So what will our clubs do when their fixed-rate loans expire and have to remortgage again? The government bailed out greedy banks. They won’t bail out greedy football clubs. Accrington Stanley were once one of the biggest clubs in the country. They overstretched themselves by buying a stand they couldn’t afford. That could be fate of your club now: ‘[insert name], who are they?’ The Spurs/Sol Campbell furore shows us that, although in England we pride ourselves that racism is gone from the game – we can’t be too complacent. The ‘Sol, Sol wherever you may be‘ chant was jokingly mentioned in The Guardian of all papers as ticking all offensive boxes! Racist/ mental illness/ homophobic/ religious. However, it shows that we still have a long way to go. Homophobia hasn’t been attempted to have been tackled yet. Justin Fashanu anyone? A Spurs fan I met the other day said he doesn’t worry about the Sol Campbell chant too much, it’s the Adebayour chant that ashames him most. “Adebayour, your mum cleans your elephant.” Or similar. Oh yeah, he’s African. Very clever. And it shows we have a very long way still to go.

COVERSTORY

Perfect party place Andrew Kay finds a unique place to visit – whatever your celebration Home Café, opposite the gate to Queens Park, is a huge success. I met Georgie Allen, co-owner, to find out why. ‘‘We took over the site almost a year ago and worked extremely hard to turn it around. We pride ourselves on offering a very different kind of café environment, where 90 per cent of the food we offer is made from scratch – using as much local produce as is possible.’’ One year on and Home Café goes from strength to strength and has become a popular choice for private parties of all kinds. ‘‘We can host private dinner parties for up to 35 guests, with three-course menus, and choices starting at £20 a head. For one client we created a bangers and mash party, with jugs of cider on the table, which was a huge success. But really, the sky is the limit. We love to sit down and discuss a menu with the client and offer tastings of food, wine and bubbly. For another client we even created a special cocktail. “We specialise in parties for adults (not children), weddings, anniversaries and birthdays. And with the venue on two levels it is easy to create very different spaces and atmospheres. Customers can decorate the venue in whatever way they choose and we are licensed for DJs and live musicians. If a client wants a simple drinks and fingerbuffet party that is also possible; for those we can accommodate 65 guests, with food starting at £6 a head. “Being out of town, you get the benefit of the exclusive use of the venue, which the room hire fee of £300 guarantees. It also includes all staff costs. Customers can arrange their own entertainment, but we also have a list of excellent DJs and musicians, for those who need help. The basement can have a real disco feel, whilst the bar upstairs

has a more chilled atmosphere. We can have parties until midnight any day of the week. ‘‘For Christmas our special is a three-course traditional lunch with a choice of three dishes at each course, for £20 per head, plus wine. These are available from early November and booking is essential. New Year is also available for hire, so call now.“ On Thursday 18 December they are holding a £10-a-head bubbly and canapés party for locals, regulars and anyone who wants to come along with music and a prize draw to say thank on their first anniversary. Home Café is not a noisy town venue, it has a quieter and more exclusive feel, an intimate space in which to hold your party. With a guarantee of complete home cooking (no frozen party food here) you can see why they called it ‘Home.‘ Home, 32 Egremont Place, Brighton BN2 0GA. Call: 01273 674456 www.homebrighton.co.uk

ANDREW KAY’S FOOD&DRINK

Heat of the night Andrew Kay heads over to Lewes for a Gujarati feast at Chaula’s including elephant’s ears Growing up in Lancashire in the 1960s meant that I came late to Indian Food. I did have a school friend whose mum would do the occasional vesta, but I know that does not count, not even as food really. When I arrived in London, aged 18, I was in for a massive shock. Indian food was cheap, delicious and did not come served in a puddle in the centre of a ring of white rice and dotted with sultanas. I soon found my way to both Euston, Tooting and Wembley and tutored myself in Indian delicacies. You might note that I say Indian because at that time we would still refer to this food as Indian, even though by travelling in the capital, I was engaging in regional Indian delights. It’s still hard to find regionally accredited Indian dishes but at Chaula’s in Lewes that is most certainly what you will find.

‘‘My favourites are the petis and kachori, you won’t find them in many places heaven knows why’’ My first Chaula experience was years back when she had first opened a small food shop selling prepared dishes and snacks, some frozen, all to carry out, but quite distinctly not a take away. I popped in, intrigued and purched a bag of hot goodies and marched off to Lewes station, a short walk away. By the time I got there I had eaten the lot. So I turned tail, walked back and bought loads more, really loads. Now Chaula has a bona fide restaurant in a fine house in central Lewes. She still sells food to be eaten at home, but in two dining rooms

she has created a menu crammed with real delights. ‘‘The food of India, not just Indian food,’’ she cries, and she is right. Mum and Dad joined Mr L and I for a feast. To start we chose a mixed non-meat platter for two and a meaty version of the same. We added a few plain and masala papads for fun and ordered a few beers and a glass of wine for Mr L who has a gender crisis when confronted by lager. The platter arrived and there was more than enough food for us all and all of it was quite delicious. The meats and samosas all excellent but my favourites from day one have been the petis and kachori, you won’t find them in many places and heaven only knows why. For main courses I ordered a selection of dishes, meat and vegetable. At the centre a lamb lucknovi, which is an amazing dish with a real zing created by the combining of spices and fresh mint. Shaami prawns had a gingerinfused tomato sauce and our chicken dish managed the so often impossible of having tasty chickenflavoured chicken basking in a spicy sauce that married rather than masked it. Spinach with paneer lived up to my expectations. Any restaurant trying to pass off cheap cheddar as paneer should be tied to barges, set alight and left to drift down the Ouse to the sea at Newhaven. Chaula’s was perfect. Of course Chaula knowing that I was in the house could not resist bringing out some tasters of other dishes for us and a peshwari naan of immaculate pedigree. I particularly loved a stuffed baby aubergine, filled with peanuts, sesame and sugar cane, a real wow. I also made light of sticky, crunchy okra, another favourite of mine. Top of my list though were some elephant ears. Now before you get on the phone to Whipsnade and the RSPCA, they are a vegetable, one that Chaula informed us takes a great deal of careful preparation and cooking. Well Chaula, it’s certainly worth the effort, I found them completely captivating and could not stop returning to the plate. Fatal really as I spoilt my appetite for dessert, and I love Indian desserts. I say nearly because in the end I submitted to a mango kulfi, Dad had Jalebi and Mr L a mysterious, but quite delicious sweet ball of a pud. Mum, being sensible, knew quite when to stop. Chaula has done the impossible, it would seem, and created a restaurant stroke café where you can taste real Gujarati home cooking at truly affordable prices. Negotiating the shop with a full belly without filling a few bags with goodies to take home was a trial in itself but I managed and we staggered back to the car for the short ride to Brighton very happy indeed.

In the current economic climate can clearing our clutter really change our life, body and finances for the better? I set out to discover the answers. Mary Lambert is a well-known UK declutter and Feng Shui consultant and author. Suzi Grant is a leading UK nutritionist and author. Together, their workshop aims to help people clear out – both in the home and the body. A complete life makeover is the result, with greater clarity and focus. This is the perfect time of year to start, as many of us feel fed up, stuck in a rut and stretched when it comes to finances. Ill health and a general feeling of life not running smoothly is a result.

In ourselves, if we constantly feel lethargic, Suzi Grant is on hand to help. Get to grips with the junk you may have accumulated in your body and your flagging energy levels can be restored for the winter ahead. This workshop proves that Feng Shui and nutrition work well together. In Feng Shui

Mary Lambert

terms, the state of your home is believed to reflect the state of your body. One mirrors the other. For example, if you have a cluttered bathroom you may well have a congested colon! Sorting out the clutter in your home, as well as decluttering your colon, will improve any sluggishness you may be experiencing in your body and your life. “Often, when you start a detox you just can’t help starting on your home too! Every time I start a detox I end up decluttering every drawer in my Suzi Grant flat, I just can’t help it!” says Suzi. It’s by kickstarting the energy in your home and body that can make the changes in your life you’ve been longing for. If not, it sure is a good place to start. Suzi and Mary not only help out the public, but each other too. Suzi says of Mary’s influence: “I refused to get rid of my old yellowing Penguin paperbacks despite Mary’s insistence that doing this would produce the changes in my life that I wanted. I finally chucked them out and just two weeks later got my first book deal – with Penguin!” To kickstart some positive changes in your lifestyle, discover more at the special decluttering workshops coming to Brighton.

record’s weaker songs fail to impress, despite the best efforts of Basement Jaxx’s talented vocalist Vula. This soon segues into something much better, though, as the triple-hitter of the Cameo-esque ‘Sally’, heart-pounding ‘Sick’ and, of course, ‘Black and Gold’ performed in full gloriously ridiculous funkadelic cape/shoulder pads, prove any doubters wrong.

Under review Here’s our round up of recent local shows, plus there’s oodles of reviews online at www.thelatest.co.uk Kids 4 Comedy It’s a tricky business putting together a stand-up comedy afternoon for kids. The ages were six to 12 and with that range of vocabulary it did at times prove a difficulty when fast-paced songs were delivered at us. However, the compere for the afternoon warmed up nicely – alternating between name-calling jokes and a lovely phonetic cracker about a wok. Headliner Stan Stanley blew all of us away, getting on the same level as all of the kids – a tricky feat – and engaging in raspberry exchanges with the front row and captivating physical comedy. An afternoon well spent. Komedia, 4 October ✌✌✌✌ Louis & Victoria Nangle

Sam Sparro On first listen, Sam Sparro’s eponymous debut is a gratingly trytoo-hard eighties funk homage that eventually works its way into your subconscious like an insidious, flamboyant worm. His live show’s the same. Early sound problems and a host of lame versions of the Mark Thomas

HOT REVIEW OF THE WEEK Eyes Down, Pens Ready This play about a Lincolnshire pub quiz team by new Brighton company Broken Leg Theatre was well crafted, vivacious and very, very funny. Shannon and Janey have been best friends since school. Now 25, they're resigning themselves to a life of mediocrity. A night at their local pub quiz with

wide boys Dean and Jude provides the setting for much hilarious navel gazing. With dialogue good enough for a prime time sitcom, delivered to explosive laughter from the audience, this is a production that could run and run. Sanctuary Cafe, 2 October ✌✌✌✌✌ Rachel Pegg

White Lies There’s a lot of hype surrounding these moody London/Hastings rockers and, for once, its good to report it’s justified. Previewing songs from forthcoming debut album To Lose My Life Or Lose My Love, the feeling is less of young indie upstarts and more of some brooding, sinister eighties outfit somewhere between The Teardop Explodes, Echo and the Bunnymen and Joy Division. More synth driven than other eighties goth fans Editors and Interpol, this sound may be horribly fashionable right now, but it really doesn’t matter with songs as good as the Bad Seeds-esque crawl ‘The Price of Love’ and ‘Death’, surely destined to be one of 2008’s dancefloor anthems. Komedia, 29 September ✌✌✌✌ Nick Aldwinckle

Tag Comedy The second in this new monthly night could in no way match its inaugural high energy brilliance. However, the comedy night that shares a stand-up set between four comics, each tagging in when they have something to contribute on a touched upon topic, still showed it was earthed into everybody’s funny bone. Stephen Grant led the way well, with Rufus Hound articulately lowering the tone and upping the laughter level. Milton Jones didn't let the side down with his pithy oneliners and ponderings, the only slight weakness being Gordon Southern, whose gags suffered by direct comparison to the other three.

STAND-UP COMEDY

A laughing matter Victoria Nangle has a natter with this year’s if.comedy winner and all-round nice guy David O’Doherty David O’Doherty won the prestigious if.comedy prize this year, and many have thought it was about time. He describes his winning show as; “kind of like when you’re going down a flight of stairs in the dark and you think there are two steps left but there only turns out to be one – you do a sort of zombie dance. Basically that for an hour with keyboards.” You get the picture. As a part of the group of comics that met at the Edinburgh Festival in 2002 that he refers to as ‘the chocolate milk gang’, he’s at the forefront of ponderous comedy. “A bunch of us who remained friends met in Edinburgh. That’d be John Oliver, Andy Zaltzman and (Daniel) Kitson and Flight Of The Conchords. We all got quite close. I wouldn’t say it was a similar aethestic or anything but we were all doing something reasonably unique and gently, I guess. Whereas after the screaming and shouting of the previous generation of comedians, it seemed like we were all talking at a lower volume.”

Five on top Art At Five, Brighton’s foremost contemporary art gallery, are celebrating their fifth anniversary this month. Under gallery owner Paola Calise’s direction, Art At Five has introduced some excellent modern artists to the city and a special anniversary exhibition has been devised, showcasing new collections by five of the gallery’s previous exhibitors; Paresh Nrshinga, Caia Matheson, Stiliana Alexieva, Yvonne Coomber and Philippe Aird.

“‘I really like animal facts. I want to be David Attenborough but I’m a bit scared of animals’” Which doesn’t mean that he’s not being heard. I ask him how winning the if.comedy has affected his set, his life and his career. He’s succinct. “People just take my ludicrous ideas a lot more seriously.” Fancy that. He elaborates. “I’ve always had quite quite a few ludicrous ideas but since the festival I’ve signed a book deal. It’s a book called 100 Facts About Pandas, where all the facts are made up. You wonder how an idea like that - that I still think is a very good idea, regardless of an award will be a great book. You wonder how readily they would have signed up for their rosta.” He laughs at this, then explains his motivation. “I really like animal facts. I want to be David Attenborough but I’m a bit scared of animals. So instead I decided to be a more aloof David Attenborough where me and my friend make up the facts.” David O’Doherty is full of bright ideas, discussing literature (rates George Saunders), music (loves Randy Newman) and comedy (really enjoys Edward Aczel – who can be seen at Upstairs At Three And Ten, this Friday, 9.30pm). “I just like certain words being funny when you put them together,” he explains. So says the thinking comic. With a keyboard. David O’Doherty is on at The Pavilion Theatre, Brighton, as part of the Magners Paramount Comedy Festival Brighton, Saturday 18 October at 9.15pm. Tickets cost £12/11.

STAGE

Boys will be… …girls as Andrew Kay meets principal ballerina, Robert Carter, of Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo

‘‘Working in this company requires the same discipline as any other professional dance company, there is no difference in that sense. The difference comes with the humour that we instill in the work. It’s great that as dancers we are encouraged to bring something to the roles that we play. But it is always a fine balance of knowing just how far you can go without changing the artistic quality of the dance, and that is important. ‘‘We are New York based but tour extensively and this year we will be working for 45 weeks, travelling all over the world. It also means that we are together as a company a great deal of the time so we have to get on well. The Trocks are a great team and we are all passionate about what we do. Currently the company is made up of dancers from all over the world: Spain; Mexico; Canada; Australia; Italy – truly international. And our biggest fan base is almost certainly in Japan, where the company is loved.’’ Robbie is called back to class; the artistic director Tory Dobrin needs him to walk through one of the pieces they will perform that night. During the evening I strain to spot the fit young guy who I have chatted with among the ‘girls’. Then suddenly I realise that he is the prima ballerina with the blonde hair scraped back into a tight bun. You can take what the Trocks do on any level. There is no doubting the athleticism and the artistry, but there is also the humour, the silly names, funny asides, tortured grins. But, put that to one side and what you see is brilliant classical dance with a twist and a dash of paint. Pure joy. Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, Dome Concert Hall, Tuesday 28 Oct to Wednesday 29 Oct 7.30pm. Please call 01273 709709 or visit www.brightondome.org.

As the stage mist clears, the willowy figures of the ballerinas in their floaty white tutus become apparent. They are elegant, their bodies lithe, toned and… they are flat chested. Four hours before, I am sat in the theatre stalls watching a group of fit guys go through a gruelling dance classic, classical ballet at the bar. The only unusual thing is that quite a lot of the boys are in pointe shoes. Exhausted simply watching, I wait to meet Robert Carter, a principal prima ballerina, I assume. Finally he joins me and runs through life as a boy ballerina. “I was born and grew up in Charleston, South Carolina and always wanted to dance. At 12 I had a fascination with pointe shoes and would beg the girls at class to give me their cast offs. But my training was very conventional, very classical, and it is classical ballet that I love. I studied at the Robert Ivey Ballet School and the Joffrey Ballet School, and worked with Florence Civic Ballet, The Dance Theatre of Harlem and Bay Ballet Theatre. Then for a while I was working in a hotel reception. One day someone mentioned the Trockadero and I knew I had to find out where they were auditioning. I joined the company back in 1995 and have been with them ever since.

Blood Simple (18) 

Dir: Joel and Ethan Coen To celebrate the release of Burn After Reading, the Duke of York’s have gone Coen Brothers mad this week. Things kick off with this late-night screening of their first – and some might say best – film Blood Simple from 1984. At times raw, terrifying, funny and yet always exhilarating, the film follows the story of a rich man who hires someone to kill his cheating wife. With an intoxicating film noir streak running throughout this is a startling debut effort from two masters of modern cinema. Showing at Duke of Yorks

City of Ember (PG)



Dir: Gil Kenan After debuting with Monster House – one of the best animated films of the last ten years – Kenan has been given a bigger budget in this subterranean kiddies’ adventure. For generations, the people of the City of Ember have flourished in a world of glittering lights. But Ember's once powerful generator is failing. Now, two teenagers must search for clues that will unlock the ancient mystery of the city. Adapted from the book by Jeanne Duprau and starring Bill Murray this is fun but tiresome guff.

The House Bunny (12A) 

Director: Fred Wolf I never thought I would utter these words but thank God for Anna Faris. If it wasn’t for the Scary Movie

regular then this fluffy cud of a film would have been entirely unbearable. Faris plays Shelly, a Playboy bunny, who’s tossed out of the mansion only to fall in with some dorky college girls. Many a hapless comic turn befalls our plucky heroine as clichés and female liberty are shamefully plundered for cheap laughs. A film with little merit, this is like Legally Blonde but much, much worse. Showing at Cineworld and Odeon

Mirrors (15) 

Dir: Alexandre Aja Kiefer Sutherland may be the king of 24 but when he steps into the fold of film he seems destined to choose dud after interminable dud. In this cheap Asian horror rip-off Sutherland plays an ex-cop, dealing with posttraumatic stress syndrome, who takes a job as a night watchman at a spooky department store. In his new job Ben is haunted by visions in the mirrors of the store. Things take a mildly spooky tangent as the ghostly visions stalk Ben and his family. Jack Bauer should know better.

FILM be revealed, when will she be able to get it out, burst the boil? We could really play with feelings and silence. I have no idea what it’s like to be incarcerated for 15 years, so I had to do a bit of research. I was really frightened of going into a prison and talking to prisoners. I thought I’d be personally affected by their situation – whether it be loneliness, or whatever. I was terrified of having to come face to face with that situation, so I avoided that. When I say I was frightened of them, I mean I wasn’t frightened of them – I was frightened of my reaction to them. I was frightened of having pity. I thought, if I felt sorry for that character I wouldn't be able to act her. I talked to some psychiatrist and psychoanalyst friends. They told me that you can never recover from long-term imprisonment, and that women who have killed their own children will somehow be able to navigate that. But it’s the imprisonment and the isolation and the cruelty within the prison that will destroy someone.

All you need is love Kristin Scott-Thomas tells Latest 7 about her new film I’ve Loved You So Long Philippe Claudel, who wrote and directed I've Loved You So Long, is best known as a novelist. Did you know his work? I read his novel, Les Ames Grises – Grey Souls – and I loved it. Then I heard he wanted to make a film. The first thing he said to me was, “I have to warn you, you wouldn’t be able to be beautiful in this film.” So I thought, oh good – because then he isn’t worried about actresses and vanity. The costumes were really well thought out – all those horrible shapeless ‘I don’t love myself’ clothes. I

enjoyed all that getting rid of all pretence of beauty. I loved just being able to be raw. The cigarettes were quite a chore, though. We had these repulsive things that came in a red packet. Your character Juliette is someone who doesn’t give much away. You give a layersof-the-onion performance, revealing her secrets gradually. The appeal was exactly that – the suspense. Reading the script, I was thinking, when will it

As a parent yourself, was it particularly difficult to deal with Juliette’s own tragedy as a parent? How much do you identify with a part – or do you have to have detach yourself, when you’re dealing with a story as disturbing as this? You do identify with characters, depending on how much you’re allowed to play with it. In this case I grabbed Juliette, and she was mine and no-one was allowed to come near her. And the film is very disturbing. Basically I was acting with, and using my own feelings with my children. It was really tough, actually. How does Claudel work with actors? He sort of left me alone. I kept barking at him actually, that was probably why. (Laughs) It was his first film, and he’d never directed anybody. So to begin with, he would explain things, and I’d say, “Yes but I know that, we need to go a step further.” Then in a while we grew more confident with each other, he'd let me tweak the lines a little, and put them a bit backwards or whatever.

Also showing… A quick look at what’s on this week The Big Lebowski (15) Dir: Joel and Ethan Coen What with the Coen brothers’ latest acclaimed effort, Burn After Reading, on release this week, and the Duke of York’s also screening the brothers’ stunning debut, Blood Simple, it’s only right The Big Lebowski gets another showing. Widely acclaimed and perhaps the best loved of all the Coens’ formidable output, The Big Lebowski focuses on terminal layabout Jeff ‘The Dude’ Lebowski (Jeff Bridges), who embarks on a quest to get his rug replaced after an unfortunate case of mistaken identity. A brilliant ensemble cast including Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Coen regulars John Turturro, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare dazzles as much as the hilarious script, striking cinematography and oddly touching moments. Bridges is the undoubted star of the show, though, in a cult classic performance as The Dude. Showing at Duke of York’s The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (12A) Dir: Mark Herman Based on John Boyne’s novel this wartime effort is an original but occasionally sentimental effort. Set during World War II, this

is a film shown through the eyes of Bruno, the eight-year-old son of the commandant at a concentration camp, whose friendship with a Jewish boy reveals a startling but desperate message. Asa Butterfield is superb as young Bruno and the film as a whole is a deft British dissection of the more tender issues of war. Showing at Duke of York’s, Cineworld & Worthing How to Lose Friends & Alienate People(15) Dir: Robert B. Weide Spaced and Shaun of the Dead star Simon Pegg continues his slow climb up the Hollywood ranks with this adaptation of Toby Young’s book about being a Brit trying to make it in the fashionable New York magazine scene. With Curb Your Enthusiasm director Robert B Weide at the helm, this promises to replicate much of the book’s comedic awkwardness, social satire and self-deprecating wit. A stellar cast including Jeff Bridges, Kirsten Dunst and Megan Fox bolster proceedings, though after some bad reviews, it remains to be seen whether or not this can be something more than the usual patronising Englishman in New York scenario. Showing at Odeon and Cineworld

Mamma Mia! (PG) Dir: Phyllida Lloyd A young woman searches for her real father whilst singing along to ‘Dancing Queen’, ‘Mamma Mia’ and other hits by Swedish supertroopers Abba. Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård and Pierce Brosnan are all game for the big screen adaptation of the longrunning stage musical. Showing at Cineworld, Odeon & Worthing Sex and the City (15) Dir: Michael Patrick King That rarest of beasts, the true chick-flick blockbuster, swoops in as Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda make their big screen debut. Picking up where the series ended, with Carrie engaged to her Mr Big. Needless to say there’ll be complications on the way to Carrie’s big day. Expect everything from the series, plus all the best fashions as Sarah Jessica Parker and co square up to the Hollywood big-boys for one hell of a brawl. Showing at Worthing Tropic Thunder (15) Dir: Ben Stiller 2008’s been the year Robert Downey Jr’s completed his long comeback from drugaddled oblivion. What with his star turn in Iron Man and now reputedly stealing Ben Stiller’s comedy thunder as uber-method actor

Kirk Lazarus in this, Stiller’s pet project, Downey Jr’s reached a new level of box-office appeal. The two men, alongside frat-packer Jack Black and a strong support cast including Nick Nolte and Steve Coogan, play a war film’s cast and crew who accidentally stumble into a real-life war zone. Mercilessly lampooning Hollywood star vanity and serious actor pretension, Tropic Thunder has proved controversial across the pond due to its liberal use of the word ‘retard’ and the sight of a fully blacked up Downey Jr, but by all reports it’s a blend of smart satire, low brow laughs and dazzling star quality.

Forager Nik Westacott will be leading fungae walks into the park as well as demonstrating how to make mushroom soup. Peter Chace, an expert at Parham on apples, will be helping visitors to identify old and rare varieties of apples – some of which are still grown at Parham. The now extinct Golden Pippin Apple was developed at Parham in 1629. Exhibitors on the day include Ballards Brewery, with locally produced beers; Soup Dragon, with delicious home made soups; and locally produced cheese from Sussex Cheeses. On the day, enjoy pumpkin soup and ploughman’s lunches – featuring locally produced apples and Sussex cheese, available from the Parham House kitchen. There will also be demonstrations of traditional woodland crafts made from coppiced material such as hazel, birch and willow. These include besom broom making – suitable for Halloween adventures and parties! – and stick and hurdle making. Alongside this, music and dance will be provided by Mythago Morris and there will be a rare opportunity to see inside the Parham Dovecote. Head to the countryside and enjoy a traditional autumn event this weekend and discover delicious produce right on your doorstep. Autumn Foraging, Sunday 19 October, Parham House & Gardens, Storrington. Call 01903 742021. Nik Westacott (forager) and Peter Chace (apple expert)

Already an award winner, Naomi Foyle’s new poetry collection The Night Pavilion impresses John Davies Poets choose titles with as much care as they choose every word in a poem, so I checked out the layers of meaning in the word pavilion. The word conjures up any of the following: a tent, a coin, a pleasure-house, a projecting subdivision of a building, a part of a hospital, a flag, the spreading part of the corolla of a flower, part of a brilliant cut diamond, the auricle of the ear and the extremity of the fallopian tube. Naomi has chosen her title well. The poems in her new collection touch on every meaning and offer a selection of her work across as broad a range – a real smorgasbord. It’s also a very adult collection. If it were an album it would probably have a parents advisory. It’s very sexy and compelling. If some of the poems are not your cup of tea, then turn the page and you’ll find one that is. The word pavilion has root connections with the word papilionem, butterfly. Some might argue that this collection flutters from poem to poem, never really settling on any one strand or theme for long. In fact I think that’s a valid editorial approach with a poet as strong and as established. Naomi is an accomplished performer and media maker. If you ever get the chance watch the spellbinding video of her poem ‘Good Definition’. Local publisher Waterloo Press have done her proud. I think we can look forward to future collections where Naomi focuses and distills her concerns and her craft. The collection is split into three parts: Darkroom Debutantes, Aphrodites Answering Machine, and The Night Pavilion. I’m not a huge fan of the prose poem, in spite of their increasing fashionability. But I found myself enjoying the second part of this collection enormously. Foyle’s raw and honest telling of sex, its pleasure and pain, is powerful and charismatic. (As an aside – it put me in mind of The Constraints of Desire – a study of the anthropology of sex and gender in ancient Greece I read a few years ago.) Throughout the collection there’s a wave of painful longing, a mournfulness struggling to transcend the trap of its own heartache: “the woman I never became plays with my hair” The different voices of the poems seem to be trying to answer the question posed in Boas and Blindfolds: “In the heat of passion Who was rider, who was ridden?” But for a collection that addresses so many disturbingly adult issues, it ends with a charming poem, that could be written for a child: ‘Things I’m Cool With Now’ “Needles, nettles, splinters; Spinach, spiders, peas. Lessons, long journeys, winter; Geese, coffee, bees,” On YouTube you can watch Prince of Poets – Abu Dhabi’s answer to American Idol. (Take a look.) I think Naomi can justly claim the title Princess of Poets.

Applefest Fed up with festivals? Well, how about one that celebrates the apple in all its glory? This is a truly Sussex type of affair, as apples are grown here in abundance and of course carry immense social, economic and religious significance. Middle Farm’s annual Applefest includes an excellent bill of live music from the area. This year the bill has been expanded and expect to see the likes of The Curst Sons, Kin Porter Stomp, The Resonators, Ukes of Hazard, Carnival Collective, The Bobby McGees and many more. Applefest, Middle Farm, near Firle, 18 & 19 October. www.middlefarm.com

Alan Clayson, veteran rock maverick and music journalist, spoke to Nick Aldwinckle Why did you return to touring? Even during my ‘wilderness years’, I didn’t forsake concerts – though some at the few bookings I had were motivated by morbid inquisitiveness to see how hard the mighty – if that’s the word - had fallen since Clayson and the Argonauts split. What can we expect from your shows? A thrilling margin of error. Are your shows as crazy as before? The instances when I bring out the hostilities in an audience are rarer these days – though some are still unsure which way they’re supposed to take it – and I have to confess I’m not entirely certain myself. One promoter found us so disturbing that he produced this firearm and was twirling its chamber as he hustled us off the premises.

The Curst Sons

Access To Music Access to Music, the UK’s largest music training organisation, which helped launch the careers of James Morrison, Dizzee Rascal and The Zutons, is to hold an open day for students wishing to study next academic year on Saturday 8 November. ATM have 20 training centres across the UK, including Brighton’s ATM Studios and Scream Studios. Performing Musician and Creative Music Producer courses, covering both the performance and technical sides of the industry, are available. Courses are full time for anyone aged 16+, either free or subsidised and lead to recognised qualifications. www.accesstomusic.co.uk. Tel: 0800 281842

Is your music willfully odd or genuine artistic expression? Neither and both. It is ahead of its time and a culmination of all that has been. In the course of one recital, I may veer from a world premiere of a new composition to perhaps a number I did during my first ever appearance with a pop group in 1968. You have a successful second career as music journalist. Any advice for aspiring music writers? It boils down to self-denial, self-motivation and the hard graft of delivering sound goods within the time frame. A defining moment occurred at quarter to five one morning in 1984 when I was two-thirds of the way through my first book. Red-eyed

Simply Red Love them or loathe them, Mick Hucknall and gang are one of the most successful acts of recent times. Tuesday 31 March, Brighton Centre

and unshaven, I was rocking back and forth in front of a typewriter in the evening of its life. For nearly half-an-hour, I hadn’t been able to think of anything constructive to say about a singer called Chris Farlowe. I’d had enough, and was on the verge of giving up the entire book – and probably any sort of future as a professional writer. If I was more tidy-minded (or lazy), I’d tell you that a great light dawned, and an idea came to me in a flash. Instead, a few minutes dragged by, and then my brains stirred and groaned reluctantly into action. Do you know Brighton well? It’s my second appearance at what used to be the Joogleberry Playhouse. I’ve played the Komedia, the Sanctuary in Hove, as part of a Jacques Brel presentation – organised by Attila The Stockbroker – at the Barn in Southwick and, back in the late 1970s, with the Argonauts, at a venue whose name escapes me. In March this year, the Argonauts and I played the Prince Albert – which was packed out. What next? I exhumed Alan Clayson and the Argonauts for a London concert before a capacity crowd of all ages. This was filmed and is released on DVD in the new year, entitled Aetheria: Alan Clayson And The Argonauts In Concert. Tuesday is the first of many dates this autumn into 2009 both alone and Clayson and the Argonauts. I’m also writing The Thistledown Flash, a debut novel that could only have been written by one battle-hardened by the glory and the stupidity of being in a pop group. On the horizon too is a new Clayson album, recorded in France with Wreckless Eric at the console again. It’s likely to have the same commercial impact as a tract from the Flat Earth Society, but so what? As Robert Louis Stephenson reminds us, “Our business in life is not to succeed, but to continue to fail in good spirits.”

Los Campesinos! Los Campesinos! + No Age + Times New Viking The popular music website Drowned In Sound is rarely wrong when it comes to making recommendations for the next wave of groundbreaking or quite simply great acts, as this line-up proves. Cardiff purveyors of lovelysounding electro-pop-punk Los Campesinos! head the bill, with shoegazy LA indie rockers No Age and the inventors of ‘shi*core’, Times New Viking. Tuesday 14 October, Komedia NA CSS Love ‘em or hate ‘em, there’s no denying the commercial might of Lovefoxxx and her gang of Brazilian electro-pop ladies (and amusingly out of place middle-aged man). Catsuit clad, hip as hell pop for the indie kids. Wednesday 15 October, Concorde 2 NA

The Rollins Band’s quieter moments. Thursday 16 October, Engine Rooms

NA

The Popes These old drinking buddies of Shane McGowan (formed after he was fired from The Pogues) still have a strong following despite McGowan’s return to the live arena with his old band. Expect fierce Irish folk rock of the highest calibre. Thursday 16 October, Komedia NA Esser This should be terrible, but somehow works amazingly well. Think of The Streets mixed with a bit of pop, reggae-ish beats, glitchy electro quirks and the odd insanely catchy chorus. Friday 17 October, Audio NA

Billy Cobham and Asere Jazz drumming icon Billy Cobham has been working successfully with Cuban band Asere these last few years; Afro-Cuban rhythms meets the powerhouse jazz style of Cobham. Wednesday 15 October, Komedia JH

Jeremy Warmsley This Anglo-French singer-songwriter has something of a cult following, mixing eighties new romantic style electro-pop atmospherics with pop-rock guitar hooks and wonky dance noises. Saturday 18 October, Freebutt NA

The Aliens Featuring former members of cult favourites The Beta Band and the man once known as Lone Pigeon, The Aliens retain a great deal of their previous incarnations’ psyche-rock magic. In the potentially trippy Digital environs, this should be ace. Thursday 16 October, Digital NA

King Porter Stomp + The Resonators Dub/ska Brighton outfit with big horns, fat beats, heavy bass and conscious minds. Great live act, celebrating the release of their debut album. Support comes from bona fide 60s Jamaican ska imitators. Saturday 18 October, Sallis Benney JH

Lite + 54-71 The highlight on this bill has to be a rare UK appearance from the Japanese rap/rockers 54-71. Don’t classify them in the same league as those horrible late nineties numetal bands: this intelligent blend of hardcore, math rock and almost spoken word is more like

The King Blues These cultish punks dabble in folk, dub and even some skiffle, making them something of a unique proposition compared to the myriad emo kids and pop-punks plaguing the scene. Sunday 19 October, Brighton Coalition NA

MUSIC REVIEWS A weekly review of local and national releases There’s a real danger with Seasick Steve of style over substance. Foremost, there’s that totally cliched hobo bum look. And the fact that he’s come from virtually nowhere to be the darling of the festival and coffee table circuit is something to be very suspicious about. It’s as if he’s seen as some kind of relic that must be ‘captured’ before the Lord Jesus carts him off to pay his dues. But on listening to I Started Out With Nothin’ And I’ve Still Got Most Of It Left, you can be left in no doubt that he is an accomplished teller of (sometimes tall) tales and singer. There’s a punkyblues attitude riding throughout but at the same time the ghosts of early ZZ Top (check the identical beards too) can be heard, which is a good thing. On closer inspection it does seem that he has lived the life of a train-hopping hobo, has moved around the world like a nomad, has endured a recent heart attack and, as a recording engineer, has helped foster the careers of bands like Modest Mouse. Ok, we’ll give him a break! Lord knows, he probably deserves it… Veteran of the trip hop jazzy hip hop scene Mr Scruff has his first proper studio album in six years. Ninja Tuna (a new label collaboration between Scruff and Ninja Tune) is an accomplished meandering through the post-dance environs of dope beats, jazzy trip hop and funky breaks, with occasional dollops of salsa (on ‘Donkey Ride’, a collaboration with Quantic), hip hop and other world music genres. Guest vocalists include Alice Russell and Roots Manuva. The aptly named Cold War Kids make desolate, reverb drenched minimal rock’n’roll. Loyalty To Loyalty is brimming with intimate narratives and brooding atmospherics. Brighton electro dance groovers Kovak are still in search of a scene that may not actually be there. However, they do a consistent line in upbeat, funky and infectious dance tunes that almost invariably involve the dancefloor. ‘I Love The Dancefloor’ is a good fun escapist tune. Brooklyn and Chicago psychedelic rockers These Are Powers’ latest EP, Taro Tarot, largely picks up where their striking last album Terrific Seasons left off, efficiently driving the heavy noise rock-outs to the fore. Introducing an element of bluesy jamming into the apocalyptic, angular guitar grind and squealing electronics, by the time this short EP’s over, the listener’s left desperate for more of this sublimely orchestrated charge through the sonic stratosphere. Much more formulaic, representing the more accessible end of the same lo-fi influenced spectrum as These Are Powers are Glaswegian sillies Danananaykroyd, and their latest single ‘Pink Sabbath’. Pleasantly jinglyjangly, screamy Sonic Youth pop is the order of the day and they do this very well indeed. Finally we have the jazzy New York singer-songwriter Nell Bryden’s second album Second Time Around. Blending a little country into the tried and tested lounge formula her management are clearly aiming for, the occasional strength of songwriting really shines through. Nowhere near as insipid as her many competitors in the race for the Radio 2 listeners’ ears, this is a solid, if at times uninspired, release.

William Tells

NEWS

Will Harris sees his life portrayed on TV and looks back to pre-millennium days

Right royal DJ Keeping clubbers happy night after night is not easy. But Queen Josephine, one of Brighton’s best-loved DJs, has cracked it. Last year QJ was voted Brighton's favourite female DJ at the city’s LGBT Golden Handbag Awards. She plays at some of the biggest scene nights, including Mardi Gras, Religion and Pussy Party at Charles Street, Wild Fruit at Tru, Sunday Sundae at Audio, the roving Rebel and Miss-Shapes at Ghetto. QJ and girlfriend Kate Wildblood, another favourite Brighton DJ, are looking for a venue to host a one-off night with them both playing. They are also going to release another Secret Disco compilation on the Crazy Diamond label and, in QJ’s words, are: “looking forward to getting people out and partying this winter and cheering everybody up.” How did you feel about winning a Golden Handbag? I was totally gobsmacked. Someone could have knocked me over with a feather. I play a lot and get positive feedback but there are a lot of very good female DJs in Brighton. My Mum was very pleased. What did you make of Pride this year? I love Brighton Pride. I have been living here for donkey’s years and I’ve been going to it since it was a dribble of people. It is absolutely enormous now. The fact that it is still free and you can go to so many good things is great. This year was the first I can remember, apart from one, that the weather hasn’t been wonderful. That meant everyone came in to shelter from the rain. It was my first time in the Wild Fruit tent and it was quite busy, which was nerve-wracking but fun. What has been your best gig? My favourite gig of all time was outside Charles Street at Pride a few years ago. It was supposed to last one and a half hours; I went on for about six. What do you think of criticisms that Pride is no longer political? I remember going on marches years ago and people used to throw things at you. It would feel like it was us against the world. Isn’t it great from the initial struggles to have a wonderful party? It brings so much money into the city, but I know we can’t lose sight of where it came from. We are lucky to have a large community but homophobic attacks still happen and we can’t close our eyes to it. Why is there a link between the gay scene and house music? Gay people have always been at the forefront of clubbing and music. Probably because of wanting to escape for whatever reason. There wouldn’t have been disco without them. House is a skip and a hop from underground music in the States that would have bled to the UK. What do you like about DJing? You get to play loud music to people and hopefully they will be dancing and you get paid for it! There are different genres of house music and it is really exciting to start playing some new stuff. It is difficult at the moment because of the credit crunch some club promoters are getting worried and saying: ‘Play stuff people know.’ It is nice to prove that adage wrong. What does the Brighton club scene need? A few more adventurous people checking out different nights that they wouldn’t normally go to. There are loads of new people in town, with that, maybe we'll see promoters being more adventurous.

The first time I watched Beautiful People, I lost the power of speech. I’m serious; for the entire duration of the programme, I sat there in silence, eyes wide, mouth gaping, unable to digest what I was seeing. Because the first episode of Jonathan Harvey’s new BBC2 sitcom, recounting the experiences of a sexually-confused teenager growing up in late ‘90s Reading, could be – almost verbatim – a snapshot into my own childhood. Ok, substitute Reading with Coventry and overlook the fact we didn’t have Meera Syal going cold turkey in our box room, and I swear to Britney that’s my life.

We’d known each other since we were seven, Simon P and me, and for a long time we were inseparable. At the tender age of nine, we would pretend to be Eddy and Patsy from Absolutely Fabulous, linking arms as we minced around the school grounds, gesturing outrageously with imaginary cigarettes and bottles of Bolly. Later on, we would embrace ‘Spicemania’ with open arms, videoing each performance from TOTP and learning routines as Baby and Scary (to this day, I maintain that until you‘ve seen a 13-year-old white boy pretending to be a gobby black woman from Leeds, you‘ve not lived).

“We would embrace ‘Spicemania’ with open arms, videoing each performance from TOTP“ Of course, I know it’s not my life. It’s actually the life of a 50something window dresser from New York, whose autobiography Harvey updated for the small screen. But I bet I’m not the only gay boy out there who identified with the programme, nor who felt a pang of nostalgia every time the soundtrack exploded into another Spice Girls number. Oh yes, we may pretend we’re part of the sophisticated noughties, with our iPod Nanos and our social networking, but back in the day we were all there dancing to Steps, belly buttons pierced and covered in body glitter. Back then, much like the main character in Beautiful People, I wasn’t the only gay in the precinct. I had my best friend, Simon P (the P was originally to distinguish him from Simon C, but when Simon C’s ultra-orthodox parents packed him off to become a monk – that was the word in the playground anyway – Simon P’s P had already passed the point of no return).

Over the years that followed we drifted apart, as friends sometimes do; I careered drunkenly out of the closet in time for the millennium fireworks, but it took Simon P a little longer. I often wonder, if we’d stayed as close as we had been back then, whether we might have helped each other get through what was happening to us, to make sense of the confusion that comes from being different. But regret’s a wasted emotion. What Beautiful People really reminded me was that, no matter where life takes us, Simon P and I will always share those last few grains of sand falling through the hourglass of the century. We’ll always have the Spice Girls, and Ab Fab, and D:ream belting out ‘Things can only get better’ as a smiling PM took those first few steps up to his new front door. Things could only get better. And you know what? They did.

She says it how she sees it

Lipstick Jungle Mondays 10pm, Living TV This show is based on a book by Candace Bushnell. It focuses on three women living, working, loving and fighting in New York City (sound familiar?) These three women are: Nico, a hard-hitting editor-in-chief of a woman’s magazine; Victory, a quirky fashion designer and Wendy (played by Brooke Shields), president of a TV company, as well as a loving wife, mother and general girl about town with her two best friends. From the very start I wasn’t taken with the idea of this and then I thought I would watch it as – how I hate to admit this – I was a fan of Sex and the City and thought it might be quite good. How wrong I was. All in all it is a shoddy comparison. And although I should watch it for what it is and not compare it, it is difficult to do when they come from the same Candace Bushnell stable, although the TV series was written by DeAnn Heline and Eileen Heisler, with Bushnell in the executive producer seat. Sex and the City was great because it was the first of its kind. It was racy and naughty; hit on subjects that us girls all knew about and it did it in a light-hearted and amusing way. Lipstick Jungle seems like a way to get Brooke Shields back on TV. It has the same obvious problems as Sex and the City – there is no way in hell these people could actually afford these things but hey it’s what TV is for. The clothes and shoes worn by the stars of the show are to die for – well most of them – just like SATC and there are a few outfits you sit and think WHAT!!??! about. It feels to me that Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte have been recycled and fitted into three roles and given slightly different jobs. The men are slightly less attractive – well a lot less in my eyes (although Mr Big was nothing to rave about!). But just like in Sex and the City the characters have small issues or personality traits a majority of women can relate to, but in general that is where the comparison ends. Realistically, how many women do you know who live the lifestyle displayed on the television? The situations may be similar, but a lot more expensive. No one can afford a new outfit for each time they leave the house and who wakes up with that much perfect make-up on? I liked SATC and I had hoped to like this just as much. But it just isn’t as good. Like I said, I know I shouldn’t compare it, but if there was no comparison, I still wouldn’t really like it.

Films on TV

TUESDAY 14 Magnolia ★★★★✩ (1999, Film4, 10.55pm. Dir Paul Thomas Anderson) An ensemble piece of remarkable coincidences that unwind slowly as the story progresses. Featuring turns from Tom Cruise, Jason Robards, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Julianne Moore, to name but a few, this is quality writing where the film is the star.

WEDNESDAY 15 Twelve Monkeys ★★★★✩ (1995, BBC1, 11.30pm. Dir Terry Gilliam) Starring Bruce Willis as a convict sent back through time to stop a viral apocalypse, this is classic Gilliam territory. With vivid imagery of the future and paranoid plots in the present, Willis is aided by psychiatric doctor Madelaine Stowe and fellow patient – he says he comes from the future, of course he’ll get locked up – Brad Pitt. Adventure ensues.

THURSDAY 16 Dog Soldiers ★★★★★ (2002, Five, 10pm. Dir Neil Marshall) Starring Sean Pertwee and Kevin McKidd as a couple of British soldiers dropped into the Scottish wilderness on a ‘training exercise’, they soon find there’s more to their expedition than meets the eye. Like the werewolves out to get them. Not usually found in any guidebook of Northern Nature are this big doggies. Darkly comic British film.

FRIDAY 17 American Pie ★★★✩✩ (1999, ITV2, 9pm. Dir Paul Weitz) This has become a coming of age gross-out film for a generation and a career launcher for Jason Biggs, Chris Klein, Tara Reid and Sean William Scott. A group of kids in their final year of high school learn about sex,

Movies on the box this week relationships and the dangers of webcams and hot apple pie.

The Chamber ★★★✩✩ (1996, ITV3, 10pm. Dir James Foley) Based on the John Grisham novel, we follow hot shot young recent graduate lawyer – is there any other kind in John Grisham-land? – as he returns home to Mississippi to defend his racist grandfather from the death penalty. Starring Chris O’Donnell and Gene Hackman.

SATURDAY 18 In Good Company ★★★✩✩ (2004, Channel 4, 10.50pm. Dir Paul Weitz) Starring Dennis Quaid and Scarlett Johansson. An ageing advertising executive has a mid-life crisis when he is demoted and replaced by a young, high-flyer. The hotshot then embarks on a relationship with his teenage daughter, putting both men on a collision course.

London to Brighton ★★★★✩ (2006, Sky Movies Indie, 11.40pm. Dir Paul Andrew Williams) A very dark and gritty tale set in the underworld of prostitution and violent crime. Two girls, Joanne and Kelly, burst into a London toilet. Joanne is crying and Kelly has a black eye. Eventually Kelly gets them on a train to Brighton. A very powerful tale, that will make you think about Brighton.

SUNDAY 19 Dirty Dancing ★★★★★ (1987, Five, 9pm. Dir Emile Ardolino) We’ve all seen it, but it’s a perfect Sunday night slouch on the sofa number watching Baby get taken on the ride of her life with Patrick Swayze, aka Johnny Castle. And, did you know the film was shot in autumn? But set in summer, so the leaves in the famous ‘lift in the lake‘ scene had to be painted. It’s true! You can spot some they missed.

14 – 20 Oct

Chinatown ★★★✩✩ (1974, Five,11.05pm, Dir Roman Polanski) Starring Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway. Labyrinthine thriller set in 1930s LA, in which a private eye is hired to investigate a seemingly straightforward case of adultery and uncovers murder and scandal. The case is complicated by a femme fatale who leads the gumshoe further into a web of violence and corruption.

tuesday 14 British Style Genius BBC2, 9pm The series that investigates what makes British style so distinctive takes a spy at the traditional tailored look. Generally better appreciated abroad than at home in the UK, the show travels to Japan with designer Paul Smith, whose ‘classic-with-a-twist’ formula seems to have done him rather well.

Dawn Porter: Geisha Girl Channel 4, 10pm Ever wondered exactly what a geisha girl is? Yes, there are the rumours and the myths but the facts have never been too forthcoming in the school yard. Time for our Dawn to step up in the latest of her international perspective on relationships. She’s given a crash course by a Japanese madam. Oh saucy!

Secret Diary Of A Call Girl ITV2, 10.10pm If you’ve got a lady of the night pairing, calling yourselves Belle and Bambi is hardly deep cover camouflage. Luckily, they don’t need any hiding places as they get booked for an aristocratic sex party – just the thing Belle thinks will help her escape her broken heart. Never that simple though is it? Poor Belle.

friday 17 Hollyoaks Channel 4, 6.30pm Oh. My. God. And so we might say, considering the church has just been blown up by the more than slightly unhinged Niall. Talk about abandonment issues. He’s kidnapped his long-lost siblings, and mum Myra is hot on his tale. Then he appears holding bro’ JP hostage. Plus Jack’s risking all to help out. S’all happening tonight.

Have I Got News For You BBC1, 9pm Like Christmas, head lice and party leadership challenges, the topical comedy panel show always pops up again. And here it is. A brand new series with regular team captains Ian Hislop and Paul Merton, joined by guest host Fern Britton. Expect weight loss gags and up to the minute jibes a-plenty.

Firefly Sci Fi, 6.05pm and 7pm Joss Whedon’s departure from Buffy and vampires into space smugglers and intergalactic baddy authorities was a hit with the fans but sadly didn’t last as long as the stake-wielding cheerleader with the networks. Tuck in and feast on these two tales of Saffron’s theft of a gun and a dead body reviving itself.
