It’s nearly time for the first festival of the year next month SEE Festival, Brighton’s documentary film festival, will be held at the Umi Hotel. For a whole weekend the Umi (the former Belgrave, between the piers) will showcase some of the best British talent. Turn to our film section (p23) for an overview and keep reading over the coming weeks for an indepth look at some of the films. The clever people behind the Three and Ten in Kemp Town, one of Brighton’s biggest pub success stories in recent years, have opened a new venue. Their new restaurant/cafe/bar Birdcage Walk is in Fiveways,and is well worth tackling the hill (p17). If you’re looking for somewhere to eat elsewhere in the city, you won’t go wrong with the new in-house restaurant at Drakes Hotel. If you‘re not yet convinced, see what our respected food writer, Andrew Kay, made of it (p18). Andrew also enjoyed watching a play designed to tackle homophobia in schools, read his review of FIT on the stage page (p25) or find out about Stonewall’s fundraising campaign to turn the play into a DVD in our weekly gay section (p32). If your heels and party clothes have been packed away since Christmas, they might be about to get their first outing. In health and beauty, Zara Baker has some tips on what to wear for Valentine’s Day (p35). However you feel about David Van Day, it has been hard to ignore him over the past three months. He told Latest what life has been like since the public started letting him back into their homes (p13). Folk musician Richard Thompson is playing at Brighton Dome this weekend with an erudite show – 1,000 years of pop music. He spoke to our music editor Jeff Hemmings (p28). More history on the art page, where Jeff celebrates 150 years of the University of Brighton School of Art and Design (p26). How important is money? In Latest Sport, Joe Curtin looks at the power wielded by Manchester City, who last week found out they can’t buy everything (p16). If you want to make the most of your business in a tough climate, you could make a few contacts at the new monthly Juice 107.2 FM business breakfast at myhotel. Photographer Tim Richardson was at the first event, see who else was there in his social diary (p8). More help for businesses in Latest Homes, where you can find out how The Executive Centre offers you the opportunity to take advantage of managed premises without the hassle of a long term lease (p16).

Business aid Sue Deane of local solicitors Dean Wilson Laing gives invaluable advice to the city’s thousands of small companies and employees This week: Redundancy consultation – what are the prime considerations? In the current economic climate and with a very bleak outlook for 2009 many employers are finding themselves faced with the unavoidable need to reduce overheads which inevitably means considering making staff redundant. Q. I know I need to consult with my staff but how do I embark on this? A. The first thing you need to do is to make a list of all the roles within your company and identify the key skills required for those roles. You then need to analyse the ongoing need for each of those roles to be carried out and decide which, if any, may no longer be required taking into account primarily if the need for work of a particular kind to be carried out in the place where your staff are employed has ceased or diminished or is expected to. Q. What other criteria do I need to identify before I embark on the consultation process? A. It is essential that the criteria you apply are entirely objective. These should include versatility, reliability, adaptability, attendance record and disciplinary record. This list is not exhaustive and other criteria may be more appropriate to your particular area of work

Q. What about the criterion of “last in, first out”? A. In order to avoid any possible allegation of age discrimination, length of service should not be taken into account when selecting people. Q. Once I have compiled the criteria for selection for redundancy what do I need to do next? A. You need to consider each of the employees whose roles within your organisation have ceased or diminished or are expected to, and thereby identify the pool of employees from which the selection will be made. Q. When I have established the pool, do I then proceed to score each employee against the criteria which I have formulated? A. Yes, you need to score each individual employee against the set of criteria and then review the totals. You will then have fairly established the employees at risk of redundancy. Q. Do I need to consult with employees individually or can I speak to them all together. A. This will depend very much on the scale of the projected redundancies. Even if you decide to speak to your workforce collectively in the first instance, you must then speak to

each employee individually. Q. Why do I need to speak to each employee individually – this will be so time-consuming? A. The rationale behind speaking to each employee is not only one of fairness but the employee has a right to put forward their views and representations regarding the possible redundancy. You may find out that they have a skill which you were totally unaware of and which could be applied in a different area of your business to your advantage. It is essential that a written record is kept of all consultation meetings. The notetaker should ideally be a person who has and will have no involvement in the ultimate decision.. Q. How long do I have to give the employee to consider what has been discussed during the consultation meetings? A. Employees should be given a minimum of seven days to consider their position and then a further meeting should be held with all relevant employees individually to advise them whether or not they have been selected for redundancy. Q. Once I have decided that an employee is redundant, what do I have to do next?

A. You have to consider whether there are any suitable vacancies within your organisation which should be offered to the employee whether or not that alternative employment would result in a demotion or a reduction in pay. Q. If there are no suitable vacancies, how do I proceed to dismiss the relevant employees? A. You have to write to each employee setting out the reasons for the redundancy (if they have been continuously employed for more than 12 months) and advising them what they are entitled to in respect of statutory redundancy pay (if they have been continuously employed for more than 2 years) notice pay and any accrued holiday pay. You also have to offer the right to appeal against the decision to dismiss which should be made within five working days by way of a letter setting out the grounds for the appeal. NB: The procedure outlined above complies with the current Statutory Dismissal Procedures which are due to be abolished at the end of March 2009. After that date the new ACAS Code of Practice will need to be complied with to avoid potential claims of unfair dismissal.

Seann’s world Seann Walsh decides honesty is the best policy and writes an ‘unembellished’ CV

CV? Honestly! About six months ago, I needed (but very much didn’t want) work, and had to produce a CV. The phrase ‘Write a CV’ can be paraphrased, quite accurately, as ‘Analyse your life, come to the conclusion that you've underachieved, and then try to pretend that you haven’t’. It’s impossible not to judge yourself when remembering every academic failure, every unfinished task, every job you couldn’t bear for more than a fortnight. Writing a CV forces us into striving to remember what we’d rather forget. The advice we’re given is to ‘embellish’. I didn’t do telesales for two weeks and then quit: I was a telephone sales agent on a temporary basis. I didn’t sit in a pub all day, getting drunk and having all-night lock-ins: I was a bar manager. But some things are hard to embellish. It seems that I was ‘between jobs’ for all of 2006. I had no choice but to call it travelling. Normally, when people say they travelled, they went to India, or Thailand, or South America. In 2006 I probably travelled downstairs. It’s like saying I went to Narnia when I actually hid in a cupboard. The use of the word ‘embellishment’, in this context, is an embellishment in itself. We’re not dealing with a decoration of the truth, but rather a wholesale refurbishment. We are lying.

I stopped typing and deleted my CV halfway through inventing A levels. I was sick of lying. It was time to tell the truth – it was time to write a real CV. I recommend it whole-heartedly. It’s rather liberating to embrace one’s own uselessness rather than denying it. Below is an excerpt. About me I have a pallid, careworn complexion, purple eye rings and teeth that are yellow at their cleanest. On a good day, I smell of ashtrays and wet towels. My inability to apply myself to even the most simple of tasks is such that the only thing I’ve ever finished in one sitting was a poo in 1993. Finally, my social skills are so damaged by years of solitude that I have a recurrent habit of mispronouncing the word ‘Hello’ as ‘What do you want from me?’ Career history In a dazzling show of imagination and ambition, I did my school work experience in Tesco, turning up for the first three days before realising that work is pointless, people are bewildering and lying in bed pretending to be ill is easy, especially if you whimper and get your mum to ring the employer.

“Having spent most of school smoking and vandalising the toilets I had fewer qualifications than the sofa on which I spent the next two years”

Education history Having spent most of my time at secondary school smoking and vandalising the toilets, I emerged with fewer qualifications than the sofa on which I spent the next two years of my life smoking and reading teletext. I then stood up and enrolled in college, but left when they started assigning work. Now, I’m half-heartedly seeking work. That it has so far proved unsuccessful is probably down to a combination of my raddled appearance, poor social skills and unusual odour. Hobbies and interests Nope. I sent it off to a wide range of employers: pubs, call centres, banks, accountants, greengrocers, hairdressers, restaurants, travel agents and more. I didn’t receive one call back. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the result.

Dani’s diary Dani Winch wants to speed up the post, shape up the Honours and get bins used

Rightful Honours My grandparents were disappointed that Bruce Forsyth was not on the 2009 New Year Honours List. Personally, I was relieved. I can’t think of anything worse than him being known as a ‘Sir‘. Can you imagine the amount of unfunny jokes that would create and also, I know he is old and has been doing what he does for years, but I don’t think he deserves it.

“The world is more interested in celebrities rather than the nurse who works 12-hour days“ But if Bruce doesn’t deserve it who does? Chris Hoy was on the list, but was his achievement really worth an MBE? What really makes Chris Hoy any different? Perhaps the honour should be reserved for those who have done great things for mankind: scientists, explorers, inventors, teachers, doctors. It’s not to say that these people aren’t awarded, it’s just that you don’t really hear about it.

When David Beckham was awarded an OBE in 2003 every newspaper and news channel reported on the event, what was Victoria wearing? Wasn’t it great that David Beckham received it? For doing what? Other than giving a few children a role model (and not a particularly good one); kicking a ball and having a new hairstyle every week? Michael Caine was given a CBE in 1993 and, hypocritically, I don’t find that as annoying, but I still don’t fully agree. Celebrities get the chance to win awards all over the world, but the teachers who dedicate their life to educating children get nothing. Perhaps celebrities are given the Honours to keep the Honours in the headlines. In that case couldn’t the ‘real’ people who receive them become mini-celebrities? Is it impossible for us to celebrate their greatness? Ninety-seven percent of the most recent Honours list was made up of people awarded for their services to education, services to public service and services to charity. But unless you know them you could walk straight past them in the street and never know. Unfortunately the world is more interested in what the celebrity nation is doing rather than the nurse who works 12-hour days. Isn’t it time we celebrated the good people in our towns, as opposed to moaning that some doddery comedian didn’t get the award. No matter how old he is or how many times he made you laugh he was never the one who saved your life.

Bin it

Speed it up!

Some travellers have moved onto some land on the outskirts of the city. I am really not bothered, if that is how they want to live their lives so be it. It has to be said that when they move on there is, quite frequently, a lot of rubbish left on the land. Is it too much to ask for it to be cleared up by the people who put it there? If the argument is that there are no bins in the areas, I know that isn’t always true. And if there are no bins, it would be because the land isn’t thought of as a space where bins would be needed. Surely it’s not too much to ask for them to take their rubbish away with them? The same problem can be seen on Brighton Beach in the summer. I don’t understand how people can be so disrespectful – especially somewhere where there are bins at such easy access. And while on the subject of bins, I can’t understand why our council, which is always barking up the green tree, hasn’t changed all the bins in the centre of town into separated recycling bins?

Do you remember having two post deliveries a day? Now I’m lucky to get post before 1.30pm. When I was younger we would get a delivery before I left for school and then there would be a second post. Now, the Royal Mail aim to have all first class post delivered the next day and all second class within three days. My pessimism questioned this, so I posted myself two letters (at the same time), one first class and one second. They both arrived the next day at 1pm. Overall, a good result, but had the first class letter been important, and I needed it before lunchtime, I would’ve been disappointed. I don’t think the post is unreliable, it’s just so late we are probably a day behind.

Man on a mission

Alison Swann has decided this will be the year she tries to find her father

Will Harris really suffers on his quest as this week he goes without hair products

I’ve been facing a few demons recently. Not for the first time in my life, but there have been some pretty major ones backing up in the hallway and I have been getting rather tired of clambering over them pretending they don’t exist. The process started at the end of last year and saw my life gradually free up so now as 2009 kicks well into its stride I’m contemplating the biggy. The one that has been the boogie-woogie wonderment for, well, ever. Well, for all of my ever. Everyone seems to keep talking about ‘reality biting‘ and ‘facing up to things‘, so I think this might be what is pressing my decision to finally go ahead and pursue this thing that nags me on a regular basis. I’ve decided this year will be the one where I make a serious attempt to find my father. And if, by the end of the year, I haven’t made even the remotest of progress, then, for the sake of my own sanity I am going to close that Pandora’s box.

“With that theory in mind, I would be flirting my face off and do something that would instantly qualify me for a spot on the Jeremy Kyle Show“

“I don’t think I want to do this anymore,” I complain, looking on glumly as Nadia picks through the remains of our bathroom cabinet like an unusually hygiene-conscious vulture. In her hand she is holding a bag containing the following items: two tins of matt clay, one tin of texturising gum, one can of extra strong hairspray and one ancient, tarnished can of mousse that I think predates a time when I had hair. “Can’t I start with something less stressful? Like the marathon?” But Nadia, whose only concessions towards becoming my coach so far have been to buy a gold medallion on eBay and start smoking even more than usual, has made her mind up that this is going to be the very first challenge in my year of challenges. Number 3 – Contemplate life without hair products. “Don’t be a diva. I’m easing you in gently,” she says, stalking past me and up the stairs to my bedroom in search of further contraband. Gently? Does she not realise that separating someone like me from his grooming regime is like forcing a bear to dance on its hind legs?

“Is my hair so awful in its natural state that I have to slather it with God knows what just to leave the house?” I should point out that I have never actually met my father or even seen a picture of him. My mum assures me that I am the ‘spit of him’. I have at my lower moments taken this to mean that I look like a man in drag, then at other times taken it to mean that my dad was a man in drag. I quite like the latter. Not knowing your father can be quite weird at times. Aren’t you supposed to fancy people who look like you? With that theory in mind then, if I was to meet my father I would be flirting my face off and do something that would instantly qualify me for a spot on the Jeremy Kyle Show. I’m not worried on that front, as my dad would now be over 70 and I’ve never been up for pulling a pensioner. However, his two sons (my half-brothers) had better watch out; that has potential disaster written all over it. So how did we get to this situation? I was the consequence of an affair my mum had with a married man with two young sons. She was young; he was old enough to know better. When his wife found about my imminent arrival she stepped in pretty rapidly and put an end to the affair and that was the last my mum saw of my father. His wife said they were moving to New Zealand, but as my mum rightly pointed out, she was angry and saying anything to save her marriage. I have always been quite pragmatic about the situation around my conception and subsequent abandonment. My mum says my dad was a nice guy, but he had to make a choice and he didn’t choose us. You might question the ‘nice guy’ bit from a man having an affair with a girl 10 years younger then him, while his wife is at home looking after his kids. I’ve always chosen not to judge. People make mistakes, they do now and they will forever. So, if he is still alive, I guess the thing that presses on my mind is that he is not a young man and any opportunity I might have of ever meeting him might slip through my fingers at the final hurdle. If he is dead, then there are two sons, my half-brothers. I have no idea if they know about me but that’s definitely a ‘cross bridge when come to it’ one, but I do know that if I don’t get the bravery together to go and look at my past, then any fantasy I might have about ever seeing my father in the present will evaporate. So James Swann, antiques dealer, pewtersmith and dad, dead or alive, I’m coming to get you.

As she bundles up my hair straighteners and tucks them under her arm, I’m half expecting her to whip out an accordion, shove on a headscarf and start screaming “Dance, Babushka, dance!” But she doesn’t, so I take my unadorned hair to bed and worry about transforming my ‘do’ into a ‘don’t’. The next day is Monday, and much to my delight I get caught in a rain shower on my way to work. Other people are running for shelter, holding newspapers over their precious locks, but not me. I just keep marching down the road, silently willing my hair to absorb as much water as possible and thus spare me from explaining to my co-workers why I’ve turned up as Liberace’s stunt double. “Have you done something different with your hair?” asks my boss before lunch, a question which my treacherous brain immediately subtitles as ‘Why the hell have you spent all morning camped out in the gents, crouching under the hand dryer and on the verge of tears? Freak’. “Caught in the rain,” I explain, tapping my keyboard extra hard to give the impression of great industry. “Oh,” she says. “I thought you might have had it dyed. It’s a nice colour.” Later, in the mirror, I notice it is a nice colour. After years of coercing my tresses into every shape possible without the use of scaffolding, it’s remarkable to see them minus their accrued patina of potions and lotions. Okay, it may not be the best I’ve ever looked, but is my hair so awful in its natural state that I have to slather it with God knows what just to leave the house? The truth is that it isn’t, and I’ve probably been a bit of an idiot for thinking anybody’s remotely interested in the way my hair looks, least of all people who don’t know me. In the pub after work, Nadia, medallion glinting, has an announcement to make: “I’ve worked out that each month you spend approximately £60 on your hair. That’s £720 over a year, or, to put it in a language you understand, two Playstation 3s and a hell of a night out.” “Wow,” I concede, “that is food for thought, and I have learnt an important lesson. Can I have my hair stuff back please?” “Oh, God, I thought you’d never ask!” she says, diving into her bag. “I swear everyone here thinks I’m on a date with Pat Butcher. Go! Go!”

Girls’ world Sussex actresses star opposite Hollywood A-listers, while Billy and Katie make waves in the US

sponsored by

Golden opportunities for Dakota Meanwhile another Brighton actress Dakota Blue Richards is still riding high – after starring in The Golden Compass, the schoolgirl can be seen again on the big screen from Friday 6 February in her new movie –The Secret of Moonacre. The 13year-old Brighton schoolgirl is used to starring alongside A-listers as she played next to Nicole Kidman in The Golden Compass. In her new movie however her parents in the film are played by Welsh heartthrob Iaon Gruffydd and yet another Sussex-based beauty, Natasha McElhone.

The call girl yummy mummy New mum and Sussex resident, Billie Piper clearly suits having a child. The former pop princess and ex-wife of Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans, is now playing the perfect yummy mummy. On a recent promotion tour of the US to launch her recent drama The Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Billie left US chat show host Carson Daly speechless after telling him she didn’t mind stripping off completely for the series. She said “Playing a prostitute you accept nudity is required. There not much boobs, more arse.”

LA bound Katie Katie Price spotted going into her favourite beauty haunt, The Lanes Health & Beauty on Market Street. Was Katie having her farewell treatments before jetting off stateside for her latest trip to LA? Salon owner Julie Coates declined to comment – as always the soul of discretion on her celebrity regulars. But she did send us this picture of a blonde stunner: her son James who is pictured here with his team mates from Balfour School’s Southern Rangers Under 10s team. Julie has sponsored the team kit for the year and the fabulous Bob Booker and Matt Hicks from The Albion came along to show their ongoing support for youth football in Sussex. Love those Seagulls.

BAFTAs beckon for ex-Roedean student In the words of the Sugababes this week’s Celeb City is nicknamed “Here come the girls!” Following in the footsteps of actress Kate Winslet, ex-Roedean student Rebecca Hall is set to become our next British starlet. Rebecca is no stranger to the stage, as her father is top theatre director, Sir Peter Hall. Now 26-year-old Rebecca has been nominated for a BAFTA Rising Star Award, following her performance in the Woody Allen comedy, Vicky Cristina Barcelona – yet to be released in the UK. The film role is the actress’s first major part and her co-stars are pretty big for a first film – Scarlett Johansson and Penelope Cruz none the less! Vicky Cristina Barcelona will be in cinemas from Friday 6 February.

Hove factually

Peter Wilson (25) With a sketch show on Radio 4 and a sitcom (Plane Silly) set to appear on BBC2 in the spring, it seems that Peter Wilson has everything. Except, of course, for the tiniest, most pitifully wriggling and infinitesimal morsel of talent. One might suspect that his success is solely down to the fact that he’s a Cambridge alumnus and that both he and his father went to the same public school as the majority of the people who work for the BBC, were it not for the fact that such accusations would brand one ‘a bitter failure’.

Five facts you never knew about fantabulous Hove

Mark Ballast (29) Mark’s Sunday Telegraph column, in which he recounts the arguments he has with his wife and the problems he encounters with the men who are doing his loft extension, is shortly to be made into a Hollywood film starring Jackie Chan.

• Sam Waterston, star of Capricorn One and the long-running American TV series Law and Order, is barred from every pub on Portland Road. • Ordnance Survey maps of Hove printed between 1977 and 2002 contain a peculiar anomaly: they omit all of Hove, replacing it with a street plan of Soweto. • Then Jericho, Johnny Hates Jazz, Mr Mister, The Blow Monkeys, Hue and Cry and Swann’s Way all field teams in the Unijet Sussex County League Division Five.

Nick Risible (31) Brash new techno whizz kid, whose website, doomedtofailure.com – devoted to selling things that can be obtained more easily and much cheaper in the shops – is set to see him in debtor’s prison by 2010 at the latest.

• Hove Museum has Britain’s largest collection of Hove memorabilia outside South Shields.

Nimby (?) Move over Banksy – there’s a new king in town! The surreal and hilarious graffiti ‘tags’ of the anonymous Nimby have been seen all over Brighton with increasing frequency in the past months. Will he turn out to be an upper-middle-class old Etonian from the Home Counties? Only time (and common sense) will tell.

• Hove cake, an EU Protected Designation of Origin foodstuff, is a much prized delicacy. Its recipe is a closely guarded secret, passed down through the same family from generation to generation, although recent analysts believe it to consist merely of a bar of Lyon’s Jamaican Ginger cake with the word ‘Hove’ scribbled on the wrapper in a big, black marker.

ARIES (MAR 21–APR 20)

CANCER (JUNE 22–JULY 22)

LIBRA (SEP 23–OCT 22)

CAPRICORN (DEC 21–JAN 19).

If you got amorous last April the outcome is imminent. Time to name names (no, not the father): so for a girl Baa-rbara perhaps and a boy Rameses. Rameses Jones, I like it.

For Cancer boys the perfect name is Rick and all attempts to use ‘The Claw’ should be avoided. Cancer girls suit something soft, delicious and pink like Marie Rose.

Solid old Librans need solid old names like Howard, Bruce, Reginald and Soames. Girls should all be called Janet as, sadly, it has gone out of favour and I crave its return.

Capricorn needs a nice earthy title. I favour Jennifer for girls as it is redolent of the fields, or at least of The Archers. For the men: Dan – never Daniel – butch yet soft too.

TAURUS (APR 21–MAY 21)

LEO (JULY 23–AUG 22)

SCORPIO (OCT 23–NOV 21)

AQUARIUS (JAN 20–FEB 19)

Suitable names for Taurean offspring might be Butch, Beefy, Biffer or Basher, and that’s just for the girls. All Taurean boys should be called Killer, just so we all know.

I want to call all Leonine girls Kitty because it’s just the best girls’ name ever so please join in the fun. Imagine the chaos at lights out when voices at back doors go: “Here Kitty Kitty.”

Scorpio offspring need nice spiky nomenclature. This is best achieved by dispensing totally with forenames and simply using surnames to greater dramatic effect: Sykes, Hitler, Stalin…

No point suggesting anything here as Aquarians will continue to name their spawn Leaf, Twig, Pebble and Kiss of Wind On Which My Soul Is Carried Forth. Not good coupled with Smith.

GEMINI (MAY 22–JUNE 21)

VIRGO (AUG 23–SEP 22)

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 22–DEC 20)

PISCES (FEB 20–MAR 20)

Gemini girls need something nice and girly like Gerty, Gladys or Gaynor. Come to think of it so do Gemini boys. Try Geoff, Gary, Guy or Shirley and add a little je ne sais quoi to their lives.

Virgoans need names that reflect their nature, so Faith, Purity, Honesty, Charity, Joy, Hope, Belle, Bella, Angela, Truth, Virtue and Peace will suffice. As will Old Stuffy Knickers.

The Sagi is best given something nice and easy like Betty, Fanny, Maud or Lily. Sagi men suit names like Bernard, Roy, Trevor, Clive or Desmond. There are far too few Desmonds around.

Pisceans should all be called either Roy or Muriel in homage to the purveyors of Brighton’s finest fish and chips. You may be excused for using these as second names.

INTERVIEW

Million dollar man Britain’s most annoying celeb or a national institution? Rachel Pegg chats with David Van Day, Dollar star and jungle antihero In just three months David Van Day’s career has done a spectacular u-turn. Before entering I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!, David was best known across the country for selling 10million records with Dollar in the 70s and 80s and his stints as part of Bucks Fizz. In his home town of Brighton, he was just as familiar for running a burger van near the clock tower in recent years, as well as a brief foray into politics which ended not long after he made an ill-judged joke about a gay choir. It might have seemed an irreversible trajectory. But by getting a place on the ITV reality show – David admits he spent a year persuading the producers to let him into the jungle – he has turned his fortunes upside down. Now he is inundated with media requests. He is so busy working he no longer needs a permanent base so he‘s sold his Brighton home and is thinking of selling his Spanish one. He‘s considering TV options – from offers to present a programme pitting celebrity men against daredevil ordinary women in challenges such as skydiving, to driving a car from Monte Carlo to London.

“If I don’t hear ‘you’re brilliant, you’re fantastic’ three or four times a day, there’s something wrong”

Sometimes, he says, being annoying isn‘t such a bad thing. “I was actually on holiday and a woman said, ‘I hated you but I couldn‘t stop watching you.‘ “Timmy was annoying. I could see that Timmy was annoying but they didn‘t have to be that nasty to him. “I‘m just going to seize the opportunity to entertain and if sometimes it’s a bit annoying or it kicks off an annoying event, that‘s the way it goes – you’ve got to start somewhere.“ David’s experiences with reality TV have led to him being invited to comment on the recent Celebrity Big Brother. It is clear he feels an affinity with rapper Coolio, whom he thinks was unfairly accused of being a bully by the young women in the house. “He wasn’t being bullying, he was just winding them up,“ David explains. “He started off very annoying and then they started to come round again and they quite like him now. It‘s a similar thing that happened to me.“ David might not own a property in Brighton but his two daughters live here and he says the city will always be his home. Asked if he would ever consider going back to the burger van, he refuses to say never: “Who knows? So long as I‘ve got a string of them. There‘s money in burgers.“ Pop Goes the Band, Living TV, February.

Love him or hate him, he is back and he has no intention of going away again. “Since coming out of the jungle,” he explains, “it's been full on, which one would imagine with a show that takes ten or 12million by the end. The profile, it’s in your face.“ The 52-year-old entrepreneur has appeared in OK magazine and on GMTV, Loose Women, The Wright Stuff and has recorded segments for Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway. He has also been invited to take part in a West End show and several new reality shows. He will next be seen on our screens in Living TV’s Pop Goes The Band, which persuaded David and Thereza Bazar to reform Dollar and have a major image overhaul, including a face lift for David. Eventually, he says, he’d like to try his hand at drama and is planning his own television show. “It feels like I‘m as big these days as I was the first time round in Dollar,“ he says. “It‘s a maturer type of thing. It‘s not just pop or one audience. This has gone right across the board.“ Part of his success, he explains, is down to the universal appeal of I‘m A Celebrity. “People watch in the tower blocks in Glasgow and the Regency houses on Brighton seafront. It’s been really full on and a bit of a roller coaster.“ In the show, David was unashamedly the character many viewers loved to hate, getting into altercations with other stars and refusing to give up his bed when Simon Webbe complained of a bad neck. Some suspected he had been egged on by the producers to stir up trouble, but David says he was just being himself. “People said, did they have a chat with me to see what I might do? “No. They might say, do you not like creepy crawlies and things like that, or are you afraid of heights, and those sort of questions because that‘s all geared up to make good telly. They wouldn‘t dare say, go in and wind it up. Maybe they were hoping I did and maybe they expected I would, and if so, they got it right, didn’t they?“ Shortly before Christmas onepoll.com announced David had been voted the Most Annoying Celebrity Ever. So it surprises me when, during our phone conversation – David is on a train from Brighton to Hove – a fellow passenger interrupts to tell him: “I think you’re fantastic.“ After thanking her, he tells me: “If I don‘t hear, you‘re brilliant, fantastic, three or four times a day, there‘d be something wrong. It’s absolutely bizarre what‘s happened to me.“ latest 7 13

A ship shed 1,500 of timber off the Sussex coast. Rough seas caused a Russian ship 14 miles off Newhaven to drop the load last week. It washed up in Kent. It is a year since the wreck of the Ice Prince, which resulted in timber washing up on beaches from Worthing to Eastbourne. Barack Obama’s inauguration was celebrated with a party at Momma Cherri’s Soul Food Shack in East Street, Brighton. Supporters gathered to watch his first moments as the 44th American President. In his inauguation speech, Obama quoted Common Sense, the political treatise by 18th century Lewes resident Thomas Paine.

Stepping down The chief executive of Brighton and Hove City Council has resigned from his £170,000 a year post. Alan McCarthy, 54, will take early retirement. Born and raised in Brighton, he joined the council in 1997 when it became a unitary authority. He held various director posts before becoming deputy chief executive in 2001 and taking up his current role in November 2004. He said he had enjoyed “four brilliant years“ as chief executive but it was time for new challenges. He said: “I shall be sad to say goodbye to the fabulous workforce but I am proud of what we have achieved in the

time I have been there. We have made some excellent environmental and service improvements and I think Brighton and Hove is a better city to work, visit and live in than it has ever been.” Council leader Mary Mears said: “I want to thank Alan for all his hard work over the years and wish him well for the future. I hope he will continue to make a positive contribution to the city.” There have been rumours of a rift between Mr McCarthy and the Conservative administration which has ruled the council since 2007. Gill Mitchell, leader of the Labour opposition group, said: “Alan McCarthy is a very well respected chief executive who is held in high regard by other city leaders who will be shocked at his departure. Alan was committed to his job, a job that meant everything to him. Under his stewardship the council is set to gain Beacon status and he had positioned the city as a place where people wanted to invest, live and visit. Questions must be asked as to exactly what this Conservative administration is doing to lose such an asset.” A new chief executive will be sought and an interim appointment may be made.

Student protest Hundreds of students were involved in a protest against Israel‘s actions in Gaza. The students occupied a lecture theatre at Sussex University’s Falmer campus last week, with up to 20 protesters there at a time. They permitted lectures to take place as normal, giving a short talk before each one. There was also a series of protest meetings. They asked the university to ban all Israeli produce, provide scholarships for students from Gaza and stop funding companies they believe are linked to arms organisations. The university said, along with the Students’ Union, it was listening to the students’ concerns. It said it supported a call for an end to the conflict in Gaza and no students would face disciplinary action provided they abided by university rules.

Centre focus Brighton and Hove City Council leader Mary Mears on a new, iconic building Brighton’s famous seafront has been popular with visitors for centuries. Now it will feature a new beautifully-designed landmark in the form of a redeveloped Brighton Centre. In tremendous news for the city, the council has agreed with Standard Life to proceed to the next stage of the £400m development. We’re now looking for a lead architect and development team to design a new centre by the end of the year. We want to develop an iconic, stateof-the-art convention centre which will include leisure facilities, a four-star hotel and an extension to Churchill Square shopping centre. It’s an extremely exciting project which will not only create a stunning new focal point on the seafront, but will also create around 1,300 new tourism and retail jobs and inject £3bn into our local economy. The council’s achievement in securing such a big investor as Standard Life is a tremendous vote of confidence in the city’s future. A new Brighton Centre will help power the local economy through the stormy financial climate. It’ll be a big boost to the city’s tourist industry, which provides over 13,000 local jobs, as a world-class conference centre will also help us benefit from the lucrative national and international convention market. Attracting visitors is important to Brighton and Hove and many are drawn here by the charm of our unique, independent shops and retailers. Worryingly, research suggests that these smaller firms as likely to be hit hard by the credit crunch.

It’s vital that we help them cope with the downturn because our independent retailers are central to the city’s appeal. So the council has recently launched a campaign to help small firms claim tax breaks worth up to £1m. Many small firms are entitled to rate relief – where they pay less business tax than larger companies – however estimates suggest over 1,000 businesses that could qualify are not current claiming. As well as writing and phoning, council officers are going door-to-door in Brighton and Hove’s main shopping areas to help local businesses apply for rate relief. The benefits can be huge – an early campaign success was a local hairdresser, found to be entitled to a massive £5,700. The grateful owner said it could be the difference between staying open or closing for good. I think this is a real triumph, and one which I hope can be repeated across the city so that our independent small businesses emerge from the recession as vibrant and lively as ever.

LATESTNEWS Phil Mills reports on one woman’s successful fight, in memory of her daughter, to change laws on violent imagery Liz Longhurst

Liz’s legacy latest 7

A new law came into force this week that marked the end of a six-year struggle for the mother of a teacher murdered in Brighton. Liz Longhurst launched a crusade against violent pornography on the internet after her 31-year-old daughter Jane was strangled by a man obsessed with fetish sex sites on the internet. Mrs Longhurst lobbied home secretaries, campaigned tirelessly through the media, gathered a 50,000-name petition and, on Monday this week (Jan 26), she saw Section 63 of the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 Jane Longhurst introduced, making possession of extreme images punishable by up Graham Coutts to three years in prison. Mrs Longhurst is pleased with her success, but in an interview with Latest 7, she explained why there were no champagne corks being popped. The 77-year-old said: “This new law might discourage some people from downloading such material but it will not stop it entirely. The issue of pornography on the internet is massive and, I’m afraid, this new law only nibbles at the surface.” Mrs Longhurst began her quest after her daughter was strangled by Graham Coutts, 40, who lured her to his flat in Waterloo Street, Hove, in 2003. He was first found guilty of murder in 2004 and again in 2007 after a retrial, and he is now serving a life sentence of at least 26 years. During the trials the court heard how Coutts had downloaded thousands of images of violent sex. Mrs Longhurst said she never set out wanting to outlaw pornography: “I am not a censorship person and I understand people’s tastes differ greatly, but I felt it was wrong people could download extreme sexual violence. “In this case, the pictures gave permission to Coutts to do what he did and it normalised his fetish. It blunts sensitivity and, in my view, it is really dangerous. Thank God there are very few people around like Coutts. “The danger with easy access on the internet is that someone can start off viewing material that is comparatively mild but then be drawn further in

NEWS

“I’m not a censorship person but I felt it was wrong people could download [images of] extreme sexual violence” to the more extreme sites. Coutts is someone who has been very seriously affected by what he has seen on the internet and I don’t think he should ever be released, for the protection of himself and the public.” The new law has drawn criticism from groups who believe it could outlaw possession of images of consenting adults taking part in violent role play. Some have vowed to help fight cases in the courts. But, in the main, the new law has been welcomed and is seen as similar to the legislation outlawing the possession of child pornography. Mrs Longhurst, who lives in Reading, said her campaign was successful thanks, in part, to the efforts of Brighton Pavilion MP Dave Lepper and to the hundreds of Brighton people who signed her petition. Mr Lepper said the new law would not bring Jane Longhurst back but it was a fitting tribute to her and to her mother’s campaigning. Many supporters have since written to MPs urging Mrs Longhurst be recommended for an honour from the Queen.

Holidays lift the gloom Holiday bookings in Brighton and Hove are up more than 20 per cent for 2009 compared to last year, mainly due to the weak pound, according to VisitBrighton. And, as tourists flock into the city, thousands of local residents are looking to get away for their relaxing vacations, despite tight budgets. A new survey shows that citizens consider summer hols the biggest single fillip to fight the economic blues. A recent ABTA Holiday Value Report predicts holidays will play a vital role in lifting the economy – with 64 per cent of Brighton residents claiming they provide a huge emotional high. In fact, the results show they rate them twice as highly as pay rises. “Having something to look forward to like a holiday often helps us focus more on current tasks” said psychotherapist and life coach Christine Webber, who developed the study. “Booking a holiday gives us an emotional lift that

we’ve called ‘sunticipation’. It’s a feeling that lasts from the moment a holiday is booked to the first ray of sun on your face. Crucially, ‘sunticipation’ will help us all put up with the woes of winter and enable us to work harder at our jobs because we have the promise of sunshine and relaxation to come. “Holidays are not just about the two weeks away. The feelgood impact is felt from the moment you start to pick a destination and, in these troubled times, the whole process offers welcome relief from the gloom,”she continued. “The nation is suffering from collective stress at the moment. January is a particularly depressing month at the best of times and holidays are one way of keeping the UK on an even keel. Everyone has to think long and hard about what they spend, but holidays are still firmly in the family budget.”

Freedom of speech Dear Dani, Truth hurts doesn’t it? That explains why people get so defensive over your comments regarding single parents. I‘m not saying that it is possible for all single parents to return to work, but so many provisions are made for those who want to. From flexible working hours to free childcare, the vast majority of those who don’t return to work simply don’t have a good excuse not to. I have a seven-year-old daughter and joint custody. While she is with either of her parents life goes on. It does not grind to a halt simply because she is with me, and I still work each day like the last. Sure, I have to think ahead, plan things a little better, but I think being a positive role model to our children is in showing them that you can have a career as well as being a good parent. As for Mr Stapleton’s attack on your character, which he probably thought was so clever and quick-witted but actually possessed all the excitement of post-neoclassical endogenous growth theory, he didn’t sight any specific disagreements with your comments but instead chose to stop short of only labelling you a fascist. People like him enjoy making good people like you feel bad, it’s the only way they have to themselves feel better for having what is probably a very unfulfilling life. Never apologise for your opinion, it is but that, only an opinion. And last time I checked we were all entitled to one of those. Regards, Andi

Round ups and rumblings from the Latest Sports Bunker

(Once in a) blue moon As the money men at City show their hand, Joe Curtin considers if they can buy success When Manchester City were taken over by Sheikh Mansour and the Abu Dhabi United Group, and were newly crowned as the richest club in the world, doubts were raised as to whether you can buy instant success. Chelsea have yet to win the European Champions League and the ageing Galacticos’ policy of Real Madrid brought them nothing for three seasons after internal politicking brought about the sacking of manager Vicente Del Bosque. Can Mark Hughes control the inevitable clash of players’ egos such financial clout brings? Or will all this cash bring dressing room disharmony and ignominious failure? Already the new Brazilians are struggling to adapt and Robinho has even gone AWOL. It appears that City fans can rest assured for, at the time of writing, their club has secured the signing of the mercurial talent to unite the dressing room and be the catalyst for success. Yes, Craig Bellamy is to pull on the sky-blue jersey. Such a move seems as logical a decision to bring about team harmony as to make Tony Blair a Middle East peace envoy. Oh dear…

“Such a move seems as logical a decision to bring about team harmony as to make Tony Blair a Middle East peace envoy. Oh dear…“ Sarcasm aside, Bellamy is a talented striker, albeit one who has fallen out with players and staff and many of the clubs he had played for. Terry McDermott said he was hated at Newcastle; there is the infamous John Arne Riise team bonding session fallout; and he treated West Ham with contempt. Still, Sparky is a strong, respected manager and if he can tame Bellamy’s excesses and avoid taking the squad golfing, Bellamy may prove to be an asset to City. And like Kaka, the one who got away, he has done a lot of work and given a lot of his own money to Kaka charity (in Sierra Leone), so City fans shouldn’t be too upset. A lot is coming out already and there is a lot more to come in the Kaka transfer debacle. Kaka is and, it seems, should be commended for saying there is more to life than money – although most of us would say that on his wages – but whether it’s Milan propaganda that he only considered joining City so he could give more to his church charity in Brazil, he does give a considerable amount to it. It’s nice to know not all footballers are self-obsessed prima donnas. City, although portrayed as the bad guys, are merely guilty of having lots of money and wanting to use it to become successful. It looks as though Berlusconi (quelle surprise) and Kaka’s father and chief advisor Bosco Liete are the ones guilty of greed and machinating here. Never mind, City fans: you’ve still got loads of money and, four points from the relegation zone in this interestingly Championship-tight top flight, you should stay up. The dream goes on. *************************

The Starbucks saga continues! The city council served an enforcement notice requiring the coffee chain to take out the tables and chairs from their premises in St James’s Street, Brighton and operate as a shop to comply with their permitted permission of (A1) use. Starbucks predictably has appealed the notice. Demos are still happening weekly on Saturdays outside the neon front of Starbucks on St James’s Street from noon to 2pm. On 7 February, Green MEP Caroline Lucas will be showing her support of the campaign and sharing her wise words on the impact of Starbucks: the homogenisation of the high street, profits not staying in the community; and why it really is just so important to protect independent, local traders and the unique character of our lovely city. Please come and join us to show your support. Monica, Brighton

COVERSTORY

Spread your wings If you want great food and a relaxed atmosphere head on down to the Birdcage Walk Is it cafe? Is it a bar? Is it a restaurant? Well Birdcage Walk in Fiveways is in many ways all of these things. Fiveways has seen a remarkable renaissance over the last few years and remains one of the city’s most popular shopping villages with a good balance of traditional local shops and newer boutiques. The area is hugely popular with families with school age children and it’s not unusual to see fleets of modern mums busily ferrying the kids to the local schools that have such a strong reputation. Birdcage Walk’s owners Richard and Christian have cleverly taken this into account since taking over the venue and the redesign and rebrand certainly reflects the fact that this is one of the city’s most popular family areas. Inside, the interiors have been softened: the look is pretty without being overtly feminine and the walls are papered in pale blue with delicate images of birds and bird cages. There are flowers on the tables, bowls of fruits and flowers on the bar and books on the shelves. Outside, two tiers of tables and chairs face the street and in better weather will get the sun from noon till sunset. The inside is mainly set for dining, but in one corner a leather sofa offers a softer option. What immediately strikes me is the relaxed approach. This is clearly a team who put their customers first, so given that the area has lots of mums, there is space for parking buggies. And there is no pressure to treat Birdcage Walk as a restaurant, the menu includes everything from soft drinks, coffees and teas, to breakfast dishes, light lunches and full blown meals. In many ways it has something of the

“It looks good, feels great and is the sort of place you can relax with friends and family of any age” atmosphere of a classic wine bar where you could eat if you wanted to or simply go in for a coffee, a glass of wine or a chilled beer. Not that I would be able to resist eating, as the menu is packed with delicious dishes that reflect local and seasonal produce. Changing the menu on a monthly basis means that the team can really get to grips with the idea of

seasonality, but the addition of a blackboard with daily special gives the kitchen the added freedom to include extra dishes when something great turns up. I had a starter of pigeon and beetroot salad the first time I went. Chef Poul has been around in Brighton for many years and many of you will remember him from the St James Tavern, where Tuaca first came to light. There he made a memorable chocolate nemesis and I was thrilled to see that he has put it on the menu here, along with a stunning banana strudel with butterscotch sauce. Main courses are equally inventive and go from the light to the seriously robust. Smoked haddock, undyed of course, is topped with Welsh rarebit and served of wilted spinach and carrots, there are homemade soups, pasta dishes and steaks too. The new menu includes pan-fried pollack with a chorizo and white bean cassoulet and roast belly of pork with puy lentils, spinach and creamed potatoes and a whole tranche of wintery puddings. As proprietors Richard and Christian have a vast wealth of experience, from running bars, nightclubs, cafes and pubs for many years. Now they are concentrating their efforts on creating spaces that people can feel comfortable and relaxed in. Birdcage Walk is one of three venues that they now run in the city. In Kemp Town they have taken a ‘back street boozer’ that had lost its way and turned it into one of the areas most stylish bars the Three and Ten. In Montpelier they have taken over The Princess Victoria (now renamed The Florist) and are busy re-establishing it as one of Brighton’s great traditional pubs. They have a policy of making customers comfortable and welcome, keeping prices realistic, selling premium brands and where they sell food making sure that it is good food. They also are proud of the team of staff they have built up and given the happy smiles on their faces and the sense that they are genuinely involved in the running of the venues, this is a policy that is obviously paying off. Birdcage Walk is open seven days a week, from 10am serving coffees and an increasing number of breakfast and brunch dishes right through till late. It looks good, feels great and is quite definitely the sort of place you can relax with friends and family, of any age. It has a very welcome sense of both style and maturity that will appeal to a great many Brightonians who enjoy a night out but cannot face the bustle of the city centre and the problems of parking there. I can’t wait to return, I have the new menu here and have just spotted a dark chocolate tart with a ginger marscapone that simply has to be tried, Birdcage Walk, 300 Ditchling Road, Brighton, BN1 6JG Call 01273 561757

Duck super Andrew Kay returns to Drakes as it takes control of its own restaurant and finds it a delicious delight…

good and the not so good. It was impressive, as were the wines, but it was a party and I avoid reviewing parties as that experience is so often far from the dining experience that a customer will have. A few weeks later I returned for a quiet lunch there with a business colleague. The menu was small, but with plenty of choices and certainly enough to make it difficult to decide. We started with a small creamy soup of excellent pedigree, velvety in texture and piping hot, it soothed and warmed and prepared us for the food to come. I started with a terrine, impeccably built, yes there is a certain amount of architecture and structural engineering in the making of a good terrine, and served with top class toasted bread and pickle. If I were being peevish I would suggest that the portion was perhaps a little too large. Not that I would ever knock generosity, but I did feel myself over-indulging pretty early on in the game. Ms CtM chose a risotto of wild mushrooms with truffle oil and made light work of it. I thought it not only looked and

Drakes has for several years offered a level of hospitality that has made it one of Brighton’s most sought-after destinations, both as a hotel, bar and restaurant – I have enjoyed the experience of both dining and staying there. Initially the restaurant was run by the team from The Ginger Man. It was an excellent idea, with excellent food and good service. Ben was certainly a chef to watch and I ate some truly epic dishes there under his leadership. But if I were to have one complaint it would be that the writing was not joined up. By that I mean that the journey from booking to dining, from bar to table and from there to the bill was clunky. Two business involved in what should have been one seamless experience.

“The fillets came prettily dressed and surrounded by a handsome sauce speckled with green” Now, in a mutually agreed change, Drakes have taken the running of the restaurant inhouse. For many this will seem like a disaster, but I am happy to report that nothing could be further from the truth. And certainly much of that is to do with Drakes retaining the services of chef Andy who has been working as head chef under Ben McKellar for some time. The change was marked with a delicious launch lunch where Andy served a fabulous tasting menu to an assembled crowd of the great, the

smelled good but was also exactly the right size. I have suffered from both parsimonious portions of risotto that left me Oliver-like and wanting more, and Brobdingnagian ones that felt like hard labour rather than dinner. Hers was just right, especially as a first course. She progressed to the prettiest of dishes, fillets of sole, and I have to confess that I looked on with envy. Years of dining out have left me wary of sole. Too often it is over priced and understated. By that I mean that it can be a pretty soft option for a chef, buy it, grill it and stick it on a plate. Well there was none of that here and the fillets came prettily dressed and surrounded by a handsome sauce speckled with green. I had been drawn to a dish of lamb and mainly because it came with caper sauce. Creamy caper sauce is the classic accompaniment for mutton, but as mutton is only just seeing a revival, the sauce is seldom seen. Of course the feisty little capers are an excellent foil for the darker tones of the elderly sheep but here the chef had made a delicious version that balanced well with the soft, yielding flesh of a slowly braised hunk of lean lamb shoulder. It was rib sticking stuff, served in elegant but again generous quantities and I was equally enamoured of some perfect creamed potato, carrots and savoy cabbage. A combination of classic qualities that could not be questioned. I did have one beef and that was the dish it was served in, a rather deep bowl or pasta type dish, which I have no issue with, for soups broths and stews but dislike with meats that need to be cut. I feel like my elbows end up by my ears when dealing with this restaurant trend. That said the food more than made up for this and I feel rather mean for even mentioning it now. Too full for puddings really I would happily have had a coffee and left fully satisfied – but a job’s a job. I made pretty light work of a delicious fruit pithivier with yummy custard and ice cream while Ms CtM had the rice pudding. Yes, I know, neither of them light choices for people professing to be full but hey, who cares. We drank modestly, a single glass of sparkling Ridgeview, loyal to the county as ever, and I did go for that essential double espresso before heading out into a wet wintry afternoon. The Restaurant at Drakes is a bold and confident move that does what has been needed for some time and that is a unification of the business so that hotel guests have the benefit of a full restaurant service at all times while we locals can still indulge in food that is maintaining the excellent standards already set.

Under review Here’s our round up of recent local shows, plus there’s oodles of reviews online at www.thelatest.co.uk Wide Eyed Order It may be a Tuesday in mid-January and it may be darn cold, but that's not going to stop newish Brighton band Wide Eyed Order from warming the hearts of all who witnessed their joyous set, alongside the excellent funk band Malarki. WEO are a nine-piece made up of acoustic guitars, percussion, flute, trumpet, bass and drums, and two distinct lead vocalists who swap lead duties but who also enjoy the harmony backup of much of the rest of the band. Fusing a blend of upbeat acoustic roots, folks and blues with occasional flourishes of ska, eastern European rhythms and mariachi, the band look like they might keel over with the unwieldy nature of it all, but their dynamic and melody-infused songs never stray far from the point nor get lost in self-indulgence. It was quite an, er, eye-opener, and hopefully many others will get to witness this very promising band in the near future. Latest Music Bar, 13 January ✌✌✌✌

dependable deft comic touch of Simon Evans, with an unorthodox format alternating all the way through the evening. Compere Paul Wilson was more character act than compere, with some mixed ideas that worked well in patches but were spread thin in other parts. James Acaster kicked off with a likeable set, with Lee Hume and Rich Perry clocking up some bankable laughs. Jim Holland introduced some successful new material and Stephen Nelson delivered fine gags that needed a little more contact with the audience to reach Simon Evans

Julie Andrews

Laugh Your Bits Off This new Hove comedy night had some cracking emerging comics, topped off with the ever-

their full potential. Worth watching the development of this night. Brunswick, 14 January ✌✌✌ Victoria Nangle

Animal Collective Baltimore’s Animal Collective are a quirky prospect either brilliantly eccentric or pretentious. This Brighton show was equally divisive. Forging a psychedelic electronic sound not dissimilar to the great Holy F*ck, AC stretched formerly short and sweet anti-folk numbers to epic, innovative dance tracks. This worked well in creating a thoroughly unique, at times compelling. Where they failed was in less inspiring moments between cataclysmic, ecstatic highpoints, alienating a crowd eager to dance with slow-burn glitchey noodling. Frustrating (but then again, AC regularly are) hints at greatness were left brief and wasted. A sensual encounter seemingly going nowhere fast. Concorde, 15 January ✌✌✌ Nick Aldwinckle

HOT REVIEW OF THE WEEK Cabaret Seeing the film is not seeing the musical, and yet most people come to theatre expecting just that. Cabaret on stage is bleaker, darker and far more affecting and this production had plenty to recommend it with great staging, set and company. But the principals have to face the comparisons. Samantha Banks as Sally Bowles does a good job of ridding the image of Liza Minelli, and although her acting is a little gauche she has a superb voice and perfect diction. Wayne Sleep however makes you cry for Joel Gray with a hammy portrayal of the Emcee and far too many references to his own persona.

Fit p25

In contrast Jenny Logan as Fraulein Schneider is stunning and for me the star of the show. Despite misgivings the stage version still knocks spots off the film. Theatre Royal Brighton, 13 January ✌✌✌✌

Lives Less Photographed This exhibition of pictures, taken during the three eras of mass slum clearance in the city, make a fascinating snapshot of prewar Brighton.The beauty of them is in the insight it gives into working class lives, which in this era were so rarely recorded as photographic equipment was well out of working class financial reach. Though the majority of these pictures were taken as a technical document to record why the slums were being cleared, the men behind these cameras saw the beauty and humility in the slums and have delivered up many beautiful compositions. Well worth seeing. Brighton Art Gallery and Museum, Until 26 April ✌✌✌✌

lowdown What’s on this week



Frost/Nixon (15)

Role Models (15)

Dir: Ron Howard Based around British journalist David Frost’s infamous 1977 interview with disgraced former President Richard Nixon, Michael Sheen, an actor with a gift for impersonation (having played both Tony Blair and Kenneth Williams) portrays Frost as a mixture of showman and crusader for the truth. Frank Langella, as his adversary Nixon, recounts his side of the Watergate affair as this riveting battle of wills unfolds. Showing at Cineworld and Odeon.

Dir: Stephen Daldry Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott play a pair of immature, boorish salesmen forced to act as positive role models for a group of delinquent teenagers. Superbad’s McLovin’, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, co-stars as one of the unfortunate kids in this undemanding comedy. Showing at Cineworld & Odeon

Milk (15) Dir: Gus Van Sant That perennial indie hero with a penchant for dabbling in mainstream cinema, Gus Van Sant returns with this true-life tale of California's first openly homosexual elected official, gay rights campaigner Harvey Milk. Played with usual method gusto by Sean Penn, Milk fell victim to an assassin, Dan White (the ever-reliable Josh Brolin) and was an inspiration to many San Francisco residents. Showing at Cineworld, Odeon and Duke of York's.

My Bloody Valentine 3D (18)

Dir: Patrick Lussier The survivor of a Valentine’s Day massacre returns to his hometown ten years later only to find history repeats itself as the killings begin again. Until James Cameron's long-awaited comeback, the fully 3D Avatar next year, it looks likely there'll be a fair few lesser stabs (excuse the pun) like this at the 3D movie experience. Showing at Cineworld and Odeon

Valkyrie (12A) Dir: Bryan Singer X Men director Singer reunites with his Usual Suspects writer Christopher McQuarrie for this long delayed World War II thriller. Tom Cruise plays the leader of a group of rebel Nazi officers who put together a plot to assassinate Hitler. A strong cast of thesps including Bill Nighy, Terence Stamp and Tom Wilkinson put on their best German accents as Tom Cruise sounds like any other Cruise role (American). Showing at Odeon and Cineworld

The Reader (15) Dir: Stephen Daldry Kate Winslet finally got a major awards nod when she blubbed her heart out accepting the Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe. Based on the acclaimed novel, Ralph Fiennes plays a law student who encounters his former lover defending herself at a post-World War II war crimes trial. Showing at Cineworld, Odeon and Worthing

Seven Pounds (12A) Dir: David Wain Officially Hollywood’s biggest name, Will Smith plays an IRS man with a dark secret who decides to repent his sins by helping out seven total strangers. Rosario Dawson and Woody Harrelson provide strong support on the way, but throughout, this looks to be Smith’s film. Showing at Odeon and Cineworld

Slumdog Millionaire (15) Dir: Danny Boyle Dev Patel stars as Jamal, an eighteen year old boy taking part in the Indian equivalent to Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Critics are calling this Boyle’s masterpiece, with it tipped for Oscar glory in February after its Golden Globes success. Showing at Odeon, Cineworld & Worthing

The Wrestler (15) Dir: Darren Aaronofsky Mickey Rourke plays an ageing wrestler struggling to make ends meet as he meets ageing stripper Marisa Tomei. Rourke went into full-on method mode to prepare for this role; he was rewarded with the Best Actor gong at the Golden Globes, always a strong indicator for Oscar success. Showing at Odeon Nick Aldwinckle

Alex James: The Cocaine Diaries

Despite being a new festival, SEE has quickly gained a reputation in the documentary world and some of the UK‘s most respected filmmakers have agreed to show their work and give seminars. Major documentary organisations like BBC Storyville, Channel 4’s First Cut and Current TV are involved. Festival founder David Norman-Watt explained why the festival was so important to the area. He said: “There is a thriving documentary filmmaking community here and we need to show people what we are doing. “SEE aspires to create an informal space where filmmakers, producers, commissioners, writers, directors and film aficionados can watch films together, discuss their work, network and listen to talks.”

What’s on

One to watch Ralph Miller looks ahead to SEE Festival, Brighton’s showcase of the best in local and national documentary making talent Brighton’s SEE documentary festival returns this February. SEE is the only festival in Sussex dedicated to factual filmmaking and showcases internationally recognised documentary makers’ films as well as emerging local talent. The weekend-long event comprises of workshops, Q&A sessions with top industry professionals and screenings of a diverse mix of documentary films. Established by Brighton-based documentary maker and director, David Norman-Watt, SEE festival has been running since 2005.

This year’s festival looks to be an eclectic one, with films about cocaine in Colombia and Iraqis detained without trial, shown alongside more lighthearted viewing like Nana’s Cruise, which follows actress Liz Smith (The Royle Family and The Vicar of Dibley) on her first foreign cruise. The festival also aims to encourage and support new local talent and, in addition to showing a selection of local students’ films, it offers sessions on funding and distribution and workshops giving advice on the film industry.

This is the premiere of the film to be shown on BBC Four later this year. Sat 21 Feb, 6.15pm, 150mins Joshua Dugdale: The Unwinking Gaze The result of 18 months unrestricted access to the Dalai Lama. Dugdale’s film offers a close profile of the exiled leader of Tibet as he attempts to negotiate a political settlement with China and considers his successor. Sun 22 Feb, 2.15pm, 75mins.

Fit for purpose Andrew Kay catches an exceptional piece of Theatre In Education aimed at dispelling homophobic bullying in schools It should come as no surprise that I am a gay man. I have been out for the best part of 35 years, apart from a short period at art school when I retired to the closet, yes I was surprised at that too. I was bullied at school for being queer. It took the form of taunting, name calling, and on occasions physical violence. It was done by a broad spectrum of boys, some thugs, some simply thick and some bright but frightened of the thugs. Amazingly it was also perpetrated by other boys who were queer. That wasn’t a guess on my part but actual knowledge. I was lucky, at six foot two I was a harder target than the smaller ‘sissy boys’. I was also lucky to be at a boys‘ school with a headmaster who was not only aware of what was going on but remarkably supportive. Other members of staff were less helpful, such is the tyranny of homophobia. FIT is a piece of drama that pulls no punches in its portrayal of homophobic bullying. Written for kids of 11 and above, I saw it in an audience of adults, mainly sympathetic to the message. Writer, creator The Education for All campaign is supported by celebrities including Gok Wan

“I was moved by the method of changing young minds. Not telling them homophobia is wrong but by making them work that out for themselves” Stonewall, the gay rights lobbying group that has for so long been actively working to change the status of gay men, lesbians and bisexual people, is behind this performance and behind the whole project – as are a whole raft of other supporting bodies. But Rikki Beadle-Blair has a greater vision for this work, to produce a film version that will be freely available nationwide. He jokingly suggested that it might be a free giveaway in a tabloid paper and personally I think that that is a great idea. The cast stayed in character for the play and also the first part of the Q&A, a remarkable feat when required to answer difficult questions, and it is this part of the performance that has most value. So any film version will need to be developed to encompass the power of this section of the show. If anyone can pull that off the silver-tongued Mr Beadle-Blair can. I hope that the necessary funding is found – and fast so that his vision of a bully free world can be achieved, at least in part.

and performer Rikki BeadleBlair therefore had to lead us through the second part of the performance in which school kids are drawn into a debate about the subject. And this he does with amazing dexterity and skill. The play is well formed, entertaining and provocative, better by far than half the commercial theatre I get to see. My only quibble was the street voices of the characters, which I found hard to follow. But despite that I was gripped and moved by the quality of the talent, the writing and the accessibility of the performance. I was equally moved by the method of changing young minds. Not by telling them that homophobia is wrong but by making them work that out for themselves.

STAND-UP COMEDY

ART

A laughing matter Victoria Nangle says variety is indeed the spice of life – and the best way to find a good laugh There are a many ways to make someone laugh – not even including telling your grandma you want to be treated like a grown-up in your thirties. However, there are only a few formats for delivering this funny to the general public from a stage. In the same way that many say there are only five true stories and that all the others are simply re-interpretations, there aren’t that many ways of setting up a comedy night. But imaginative minds are working on this. The first and most well-known of these formats is a compere, two support acts and a headliner. Generally with an interval between each act. This is used up and down the country and across the globe. It’s where most professional comics live, and the only place up from here is playing solo theatre shows and moving to Hollywood to sell your bicycle and learn how to ride your soul. Or something like that. The second is the new act night. Generally this is made up of anywhere between half a dozen and 30 acts each doing somewhere between five and fifteen minutes of material, guided by a compere. I describe it in such loose terms because it entirely depends on how organised the booker is. There is one London booker who regularly overbooks the number of acts he can feasibly fit on in one night and then blames them all for turning up and taking advantage of his soft heart, omitting the fact that he booked them all readily by email.

“Like most creative fields in this Bohemian part, if you want to keep doing it you’ve got to be good“ Luckily for us, the Brighton and East Sussex new act circuit is better organised, with many nights out there allowing for a cheap local night out, but without so many that any kind of self-quality control can’t be engaged. Like most creative fields in this Bohemian part of the country, if you want to keep doing it you’ve got to be quite good otherwise people are going to wander off and find someone better. Then there’s the Gong Show, usually put on by the larger clubs and allowing new acts with a bit of experience under their belts to see how long they can keep the audience’s attention before they’re boo’d off. It’s brutal, but those who do well can go on to get longer paid slots from those big clubs, raising their profile further. Komedia is currently encouraging a number of new formats. From the helpful leg-up, mixing vetted new acts with a circuit headliner in Comic Boom, to the chance to see new material from some of the most comedy-orientated brains in Old Rope. Plus, the brilliant and quite unique Tag Comedy – bringing the terror back to established acts the like of which they’ve not known since their new act days, and making them sharper with it. Plus other places with storytelling, improvisation and much more. Thank goodness for the creative brain.

Compared to our venerable neighbours Lewes we are but a teenager, growing up fast but still maturing. So, it comes as a surprise to learn that the University of Brighton School of Art of Design is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. Originally known as the Brighton School of Art, 150 artists and designers will display their work at this commemorative exhibition including such notables as Raymond Briggs, Turner Prize winners Anthony Gormley, Keith Tyson and Rachel Whiteread, illustrators John Vernon Lord and Quentin Blake, and designer George Hardie. Plus there will be host of promotional materials (for The Sex Pistols, Pink Floyd, Muse etc) designed by students of the school.

Sponsored fish count Brighton Sea Life Centre is raising funds for a new turtle rescue centre by hosting a special day for under-16s on Saturday 31 January. The popular aquarium is offering children free admission into the centre on this date if 20 or more people sponsor them to count as many sea creatures as they can. The child who raises the most money in sponsorship will win a VIP trip for themselves and a parent or guardian to the Greek island of Zakynthos, making a welcome getaway break. Zakynthos is the location of the new rescue facility being built by Earth, Sea and Sky, with over 100,000 euros already raised by sea life centres across Europe. The rescue centre is 80 per cent complete, with more funds needed. Brighton Sea Life Centre curator Alex Gerard and his colleagues hope the sponsored fish count will provide a valuable prelaunch boost to help get the facility finished and fully equipped. If you would like to help, download the sponsor form – which must be authorised by a parent or guardian – from the Sea Life website www.sealifeeurope.com. Raise sponsorship money for free entry into the Sea Life Centre this Saturday 31 January.

Don‘t be fooled by the cover of this book – it might look like one of those harrowing, autobiographical stories of an abusive childhood, but that is completely misleading. In fact, it isn’t an autobiography at all but a commanding debut novel from an astute local writer. Living in Perhaps by Julia Widdows, like a 21st century The Secret Garden, is a tale of a child who finds refuge from the frustrations and boredom of her own life when she discovers a magical land beyond her family’s hedge. Bright Carol is fed up of her home life, with her unimaginative brother, henpecked father and mother who obsesses about what other people might think, while keeping strangers firmly at a distance. “Give some people an inch and they‘ll take a mile,” Carol’s mother tells her. “Hold out the hand of friendship and you never know what you are letting yourself in for.“ Above all, Carol’s parents are deeply suspicious of anyone who doesn’t conform to their regimented standards of living, which means they would never dream of interacting with their bohemian neighbours over the mysterious hedge. Carol secretly befriends the girl next door and, through her family, learns about things her own relatives would never discuss, such as art, literature, sex and how to defy the norm. Living in Perhaps is narrated by an older Carol, who is a patient in a psychiatric unit and who refuses to talk with her therapist about the events that led to her being there. Widdows, who has run groups for recovering addicts and alcoholics using writing as a therapeutic tool, describes life within the unit with sensitivity and intelligence. But the novel isn’t really a book about mental health; its themes reach much wider. It‘s about identity, how we search for ourselves through our experiences of others, how our families shape who we are as adults, and how children are held back by the class system. It is also a coming-of-age tale in which Carol learns that we might start life by thinking we can achieve anything, but the older we get, the less that seems possible. “Suddenly it hits you … You begin to understand that all those wonderful things you were counting on to happen … won‘t happen at all.“ With characters so real you can almost hear and see them, and innocent, vivid narration, this is a rewarding and enchanting read. Julia Widdows will read from Living in Perhaps in Brighton on Thursday 29 January at 6.30. Details below.

Folk warrior Richard Thompson presents a history of song as part of his latest musical project. Jeff Hemmings spoke to him It seems an unlikely inspiration, but the attempted meeting of minds between folk roots troubadour Richard Thompson and highbrow breast merchant Playboy magazine has directly resulted in Thompson’s latest project, 1,000 Years of Popular Music, which is currently touring the UK. “They asked me to name the best ten songs of the millennium,” explains Thompson, “for Playboy’s millennium issue at the tail-end of ‘99.“ Thompson took to the task literally. “I thought I’d start in AD1000 with a jumpy little number by St. Godric,” laughs Thompson, who spoke to Latest 7 while over in the UK visiting family (he has lived in Los Angeles for the last 15 years, married to an ‘Angelina’). Perhaps unsurprisingly, Playboy magazine declined to print his list but the seed of an idea had been sown and when the Getty Museum in Los Angeles asked Thompson to perform a show, he unearthed his list. “I had to do some research for a lot of the really old music,” says Thompson, “and I always went back to the original manuscript (rather than a recorded version) and brought the songs back to life.” Thompson himself has always been interested in all styles of music, from esoteric folk to full-on rock’n’roll. “My dad listened to a lot of Django Reinhardt, and my older sister was buying rock’n’roll which I listened to through the bedroom wall.” I ask him about his current faves and Thompson earns himself extra brownie points by namechecking The Klaxons, Franz Ferdinand and The Fratellis as acts he rates. And it’s obvious from talking to him and

researching his musical career that it’s his love of a very wide breadth of music, and the fact that he is largely self-taught, thereby creating an original and distinctive style of guitar playing, that has determined his musical voice that incorporates rock, pop, folk, blues, country, classical and much else besides. “I’ve always had this strong need to communicate through music I’m quite driven to write songs and to be creative,” says Thompson who is a prolific writer alongside touring regularly. What next for the great man? “I’m working on a new electric album and a commission for a large peace-song cycle that hopefully will be toured later this year or next.” Thompson will be joined on stage by Judith Owens and Debra Dobkin, and their repertoire will wind its way from the aforementioned St. Godric to quite possibly Britney Spears and ‘Ooops!… I Did It Again’. Sing-a-long is not mandatory! Richard Thompson: 1000 Years of Pop Music, Saturday 31 January, Brighton Dome

MUSICHIGHLIGHTS Open Mac Night This weekly event always seems to pop up in the highlights of these pages and it’s for a good reason. This is a great idea: take the standard open mic format you can get seemingly anywhere in Brighton and adapt this to electronic music. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops and samplers and fiddle about with bleeps and beeps to their heart’s content. Wednesday 28 January, Sidewinder NA Somewhere in the Universe... La Roux The indie/alternative electro club night pulls off something of a coup this week with a duo near the top of every hack’s list of ‘ones to watch for 09’. Think ultra-slick electro-pop with the odd funk groove and you’ll either baulk or lap this up. Still, you won’t be able to see La Roux in venues this small for long. Friday 30 January, New Hero NA Sky Larkin These Leeds new-wave rockers are another one of those new bands being hyped to

death at the moment. High energy pop hooks and nicely catchy tunes look certain to guarantee some easy listening success for Sky Larkin. Friday 30 January, Audio NA Marillion Even without former frontman Fish on stage, Marillion stoically fly the flag of progressive rock. With new double album Happiness Is The Road recently released and an impressive back catalogue boasting all the worst (best?) prog indulgences and the odd world-conquering power ballad, the band who took their name from Lord of the Rings precursor The Silmarillion are about as enjoyable as a Tolkien fantasy romp: namely, very. Wednesday 28 January, Concorde 2 NA The Streets Mike Skinner’s been at this for a fair few years now and word is that his next, fifth, album is to be his last. Something of an acquired taste, it remains to be seen whether or not The Streets’ blend of Ben Sherman rap and dance beats is still relevant

to the post-LCD Soundsystem scene. Skinner’s work is never anything less than interesting, though. Wednesday 28 January, Brighton Dome NA

The Curst Sons + The Hat + Lisa LindleyJones Take a gallon of The Blues, pour in three quarts of bluegrass, a pinch of Hellfire Gospel and a heap of Old Time and you have some endearing Hillbilly Country fit for any barn (and Concorde 2).

MUSIC REVIEWS A weekly review of local and national releases Yes, male journos are suckers for the beautiful and the brave. Which is what Emmy The Great is. Luckily for us, she is also an excellent songwriter; Dylanesque in tone, a little bit folky in style, but completely modern and along with Laura Marling, spearheading the generation of new female singer songwriters that know a thing or two about writing, composition and economy. Factory Records have a four-CD box set available, a real treasure trove of music from the late 70s through to the 90s and featuring the likes of Joy Division, A Certain Ratio, Happy Mondays, Durutti Column, New Order and Cabaret Voltaire as well as a slew of lesser names. The difference between the biggest selling and the not-sowell sellers is obvious, but there’s quality throughout. Factory seemed to have a sound all their own; an inspired fusion of punk, art, industrial and bleakness that echoes the musical hinterland of Manchester. Brighton’s Milk & Honey Band have been around a few years now on the fringes. These aspiring part-timers make sumptuous, psychedelicallyinspired, harmony-rich driving pop mixed with delicate balladry, where REM meets a more melancholy Beatles. They are signed to Andy Partridge’s (ex-XTC) label, Ape, and were recently featured on the covermount of Word magazine. Great band with a bagful of great songs as can be heard on new album Dog Eared Moonlight. Local dance, beats, samples and grooves boy Cakeboy has a new single available via iTunes and other download platforms. ‘Skyrider’ is another excellent tune, easy on the ears, amalgamating butt-shaking bass with house stabs, searing electric guitar and electronic flourishes. As usual there’s more going on in one track than many so-called dance producers can fit into an album. Most importantly, it flows. Great stuff. You could be forgiven for assuming certain things about Portland singer-songwriter M. Ward. He counts amongst his famous fans (and friends) the likes of Bright Eyes and Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis. Indeed, he's worked with Conor Oberst on his Monsters of Folk project. Indie cinema starlet Zooey Deschanel recruited him for her musical foray, resulting in the none-more-hip She & Him. You might get the picture: highly polished, vacant-eyed indie rock for the masses. It’s to Ward’s credit, then, that new release Hold Time emerges as an adventurous dabble in decidedly un-hip terrain: catchy pop jaunts, glam-rock influenced singalongs and an endearing directness to his work. Hold Time isn’t as successful as it might have been, though never dips below the ‘entertaining’ gauge. Finally, a quick nod to French-language Nantes vocalist Francoiz Breut. She played at the Duke of York’s last week. On the strength of fourth album, Á L’aveuglette, there really is no excuse for having missed it, even if it did clash with of Montreal! An atmospheric record harking back to the vintage sound of the likes of Jeanne Moreau or Nico, this is a far classier affair than the relative also-rans (Duffy, Adele) currently clogging up the charts. Sultry and sophisticated, Breut dabbles in various genres while striving to make perfect pop.

Brighton’s only weekly gay guide NEWS

School drama Stonewall has appealed for financial support to be able to take its awardwinning anti-homophobia drama into every school in the country. The lobbying charity brought FIT to Brighton’s Sallis Benney Theatre recently to garner support for the cause. FIT has already been performed in front of 20,000 children and young people in the UK, including at Varndean School, Brighton. But Stonewall would like to be able to bring it to an even wider audience, which would mean turning the drama into a DVD which could potentially be sent to every school and be shown on TV. It needs £150,000 to make this possible. One 11-year-old who saw FIT at school said: “The play taught me a lesson. If one of my friends was gay I would stick up for them... and you shouldn’t leave them out because you love them as a friend.” When performing at schools, the cast spend time afterwards in character talking to the audience and answering questions, in an open debate fielded by director and writer Rikki Beadle-Blair. Rikki also has some questions of his own for the school pupils. One of the first things he asks is how many people know somebody who is gay. Brighton, he said, was the only place in the country where every member of the audience put their hand up. They then move onto discussing their ideas and preconceptions surrounding sexuality and homophobia. Sometimes the young audiences can be challenging and confrontational, but they are encouraged to be honest about their opinions so the issues can be addressed. The play is acted by Team Angelica, Rikki Beadle-Blair’s 200-strong London-based theatre company, whose members include Menhaj Huda, director of the socially conscious hit movies Kidulthood and Adulthood.

Singing out A choir is looking for new members. Rainbow Chorus, Brighton’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender choir which has been going for more than ten years, wants to hear from people interested in performing this year. From Friday 1 to Monday 4 May the chorus will take part in Various Voices at the Southbank Centre in London. The event, held every four years, celebrates lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender identity through song and showcases the achievements and diversity of LGBT choirs from around the world. Last year was a successful one for the Rainbow Chorus, with performances at Brighton’s Jubilee Library, the opening of the Brighton Fringe Festival and at the International Day Against Homophobia , Biphobia, Interphobia and Transphobia. The chorus also performed as a guest choir during the World Aids Day concert in Brighton. Find out more at www.rainbowchorus.org.uk The drive to raise money for FIT and Stonewall’s wider Education for All campaign to tackle homophobia in schools are backed by celebrity supporters including actor Richard Wilson. To show your support, log onto www.stonewall.org.uk/FIT Stonewall’s sixth annual 10k Equality Walk will take place in Brighton on Sunday 3 May, setting off from the Pavilion Gardens at 2pm. Registration for the walk is £10. Walkers receive a goody bag and Tshirt and can enjoy entertainment on the day. All walkers need to do is raise more than £10 in sponsorship. There will be prizes for the top fundraising individuals and groups. To register email mariaanna.petrou@stonewall.org.uk or call 0207 5932294. Richard Wilson with FIT actor Ludvig Bonin

Loved-up look Zara Baker glams up in winter from top-to-toe There’s just a few weeks until Valentine’s Day. Ladies, if you’re planning on shedding the cardi and woolly hat combo and glamming it up, ease in gently. The gorgeous dresses, sky-heel heels and perfect make-up from Christmas and New Year festivities seem a lifetime ago. The next big calendar event is of course, St Valentine’s. If you’re planning to woo, be wooed or celebrate with singleton friends, mix winter sale bargains with hot new trends for spring and summer. The shops have (mostly all) released their new looks for the hopefully warmer season ahead. But it is still only February, so mixing seasonal trends is required. The classic little black dress (1) is the essential staple – particularly if you don’t want to attract too much attention in a flashy red Valentine’s number. Team the black dress with a red bag and/or shoes for eye-catching style in a subtler way. Don’t forget to make your nails match with a vampy red polish (2). Step out in a pair of shoes (3&4) that won’t make battling with rain or snow a problem, but still have height for that extra sex appeal. Experiment with spring make-up trends (5&6) – corals and shimmering pinks to add warmth to the complexion. Finish off with a perfectly tamed mane against the winter elements with an intensive treatment and balm for tame, shiny locks. (7&8) The perfect Valentine’s look – whatever the 5 Herbal Lipstick in Coral Punch, £.8.75 weather and remember to keep it cosy. available from www.screenglam.com

She says it how she sees it

Celebrity Big Brother I have never been a fan of Big Brother. I previously couldn’t think of anything more boring to do with my time. But this time, I have watched probably far too much. I was surprised to find it was actually funny. The food task the housemates were given on the week Tina was evicted was brilliant. Firstly because Tina and Terry had to wear tutus and perform a ballerina-style dance, Terry seemed to be into doing it, but Tina was clearly confused by the turning platform the dance had to be performed on. Coolio and Tommy had to dress as toy cars and whenever the ‘Car Wash‘ song came on they had to get to the mini car wash within 30 seconds and spend 30 seconds going through it. At first their seriousness was hysterical, along with the continual navigation it took to sit down. Latoya is 52! I was amazed to find that out, I couldn’t care less how much plastic surgery she may have had – she looks amazing. Although she is the least likely celebrity I could ever imagine going into the Big Brother house, I like having her there, she is quiet but I think she adds a little glamour to the house. When the line-up for Big Brother came out, the press were hoping Ulrika would talk about her personal life, while in the house. I thought that was a bit mean, it was obvious they were hoping for another scathing scoop. All I have found, is that I like her. She openly admits that she has four children by four different men, but you can tell she loves them all and really that’s all that matters. I think she has had so much bad press over the years, that it’s about time someone wrote something nice about her. Ben was once in a boy band that I can’t remember, he is a bit dull unless he is dressed as a dragon, but he seems nice. Michelle cries a lot but you can’t help but like her, she always gets the wrong end of the stick or gets stick from Coolio for saying something wrong. Coolio is always finding something annoying or funny. He has been, along with Tommy, a point of friction in the house but it has been funny. Verne dressed as the bear was brilliant. For a majority of the time I was watching worrying about whether it was okay or not to think he looked cute – baby cute – while dressed as a teddy bear. But when he jumped off that stack of toy blocks into the arms of Michelle who spun him around that was it for me, he wasn’t helping the case! At the time of writing, I don’t know who is this year’s winner. I am in two minds, I like Terry, I think he is funny, but I also want Ulrika to win. I think she deserves to win something. But as it is with Big Brother, there is always a chance that things might change.

Top tips for your week of flicks

TUESDAY 27

SATURDAY 31

The Faculty ★★★✩✩ (1998, Sci Fi, 11.50pm. Dir Robert Rodriguez) Ever felt that teachers are out to get you? That they may as well come from another planet? King of splat Rodriguez pulls off the coup of playing on teenage alienation thoroughly with Josh Hartnett and Elijah Wood running scared from the teachers’ lounge.

Planet of the Apes ★★✩✩✩ (2001, Channel 4, 9pm. Dir Tim Burton) Unintentionally hilarious remake of the 1968 classic, following the adventures of a daring astronaut who crash-lands on a planet dominated by intelligent, talking apes. With the help of a chimpanzee activist and a band of rebel humans, he forms a resistance movement to liberate mankind from their simian oppressors.

WEDNESDAY 28 Man On The Moon ★★★★✩ (1999, BBC1, 12.05am. Dir Milos Forman) What happens when Jim Carrey plays it straight? You get a very good biopic of troubled comic Andy Kaufman that no one really got. Kaufman’s comedy was surreal, unusual and nothing like Carrey’s usual brand of slapstick. A sensitively done tale of a troubled man.

THURSDAY 29

SUNDAY 1 The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy ★★★★✩ (2005, BBC2, 10.30pm. Dir Garth Jennings) Arthur Dent escapes the destruction of the Earth to make way for a new galactic hyperspace bypass. With the aid of the Guide, a galactic president with short-term memory loss and a depressed robot, Arthur embarks on an improbable journey through the universe in search of the meaning of life and a really good cup of tea.

The Butterfly Effect ★★★✩✩ (2004, Channel 4, 10.35pm. Dir Eric Bress) They say that if you go back to your childhood you can find the things that mucked you up into the dysfunctional adult you’ve become. Ashton Kutcher’s found them! And he’s found a way to go back in time and change the nasty events that screwed with his head. Only that changes other things too. And then it’s a mess. Oops.

FRIDAY 30 The Diamond Queen ★★✩✩✩

Monty Python’s the Meaning of Life★★★★★

(1953, Channel 4, 1.50pm. Dir John Brahm) It’s 1659 and jeweller Gabriel Tavernier mis-cuts a diamond meant for the crown of Louis XIV. The king’s not pleased and throws him in jail, sending the jeweller’s son off to India to get a replacement sparkly – or else. There he meets the beautiful Queen Maya. You can tell she’s trouble from the off.

(1983, ITV1, 11.15pm. Dir Terry Jones & Terry Gilliam) The Python team present a series of outrageous vignettes in this irreverent look at the various stages of human life. Bad taste highlights include doctors trying to claim a healthy liver from a still-living donor, and the spectacular demise of the world’s most voracious glutton.

Transporter 2 ★★★✩✩ (2004, Film4, 9pm. Dir Louis Leterrier) Much better than it sounds from the title alone. This chase film sees Jason Statham have the boy he was chauffeuring snatched from his very car. Not a happy chappy at this, he determines to save the kiddie while tearing around the city at breakneck speed. He’s a good kid, y’see, and Jase is, surprisingly, ex-special forces. Fun action caper.

36 latest 7

27 Jan – 2 Feb

MONDAY 2 Hotel Rwanda ★★★★✩ (2004, Channel 4, 10pm. Dir Terry George) A hotel manager battles to save desperate refugees during the 1994 Rwandan civil war that saw Hutu extremists systematically try and wipe out their Tutsi neighbours. This is an impressive and acutely shocking telling of recent history.

tuesday 27 Trinny And Susannah Meet Their Match ITV1, 8pm Tom Jones may have loved them but Trinny and Susannah are less enamoured – sex bombs. In the final episode of this series tackling the changing of pack identity, T & S take a closer look at women over 40 who are not ashamed to look sexy. Scrummy mummies eat your heart out.

Gok Wan: Too Fat Too Young Channel 4, 9pm Some may say this is a tad ‘shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted’ pointing out teenage obesity, but as an ongoing problem, it’s not going to be out of Vogue. Gok Wan, who himself battled with food issues, mixes his own recipe of candour and tough love to find out more. Plus, Dawn French on body image.

Cowards BBC4, 10pm The latest in the bombardment of sketch shows the BBC has been throwing at BBC3 and BBC4 in the hope of finding the next Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Catherine Tate. This sample has had some good write-ups, with scenarios ranging from disaffected judges to office bullying via Skype. Potential.

thursday 29 The Speculators BBC2, 7.30pm Last year the price of crude oil shot up to a record high of $147 a barrel. Not a small ripple in the pond of global economics. The Money Programme’s Max Flint travels to the US Virgin Islands to investigate the place of financial speculators in this, devastating – for some – knock on our economy.

Cowboy Builders Five, 8pm With the rise in home improvements of late – make do and make it better – there comes the rise in telly shows about this popular activity. Do they not have lives of their own? Actually it’s quite good they don’t as Melinda Messenger and Dominic Littlewood come to the rescue of a loft conversion in Leeds.

Vodka, Homework And Me BBC3, 9pm Drink has permeated society quite thoroughly. The binge drinking shows have told us so. But seeing the struggles of 11year-old Reece really makes us sit up and take notice. This is not a bunch of office workers letting off steam but a child going through rehab. Looking at his pressures and struggles.

friday 30 Ramsay’s Great British Nightmare Channel 4, 9pm Not one, but two troubled eateries are on the crinkly-faced one’s show tonight. It’s a double whammy, and as such, warrants a feature-length episode. Sorting out The Runaway Girl in Sheffield and The Dovecote in Devon will be quite a feat in these current frugal times. Good luck Gordo.

Pushing Daisies ITV1, 10pm Back and on a Friday night, this quirky comedy that proved so popular in 2008 returns maintaining its quirky macabre sense of fun and communion with the recently departed. Emerson is hired to investigate the tragic bee-related death of Kentucky Fitz, and Lily helps Olive move to a nunnery. Bliss.

Will they find thier diamonds in the rough? Or just a load of gravel?
