Latest TV’s bid for local television, backed by Juice 107.2FM and Wired Sussex on behalf of the city of Brighton and Hove, has been sent to the DCMS (Department of Culture, Media and Sport). We will hear in the next few months if Brighton is on the list. We have been inundated with messages of support from across Brighton and in the next few weeks we will print these. Our sincere thanks to all those people who backed the bid. To be honest, it’s been hard to find anyone against it! The bid has total cross-party support with all MPs and all parties on the council in favour, plus backing from the Chamber of Commerce, City College Brighton & Hove and the universities, Brighton & Hove Albion... I could go on and on! I guess people want to see Brighton studios on their television at teatime and not Maidstone or Southampton! Meanwhile, let’s start with a Lord and a lady – Lord Bassam (former minister in the Labour government) and Caroline Lucas MP (leader of the Green Party). Bill Smith, Managing Director, Latest TV “My vision for our great city by the sea has always included it being at the centre of cultural activity. Having our very own local TV station would help the city fulfil that ambition. Brighton and Hove falls into a TV black hole never fitting quite into any of the TV output areas. If we are to continue to regenerate our city and ensure it stays in the premier league as a place to do business, as a visitor attraction, a place for cultural investment and a great sporting centre, then having our own TV output will add something of real value. With all the local talent at our disposal ours will be a truly brilliant example of what local television can achieve. A cultural revolution beckons – bring it on.” – Lord Bassam of Brighton “Brighton and Hove is a vibrant and progressive city with a wealth of media talent and a strong track record of community engagement, making it ideally placed to champion and make a success of local TV.” – Caroline Lucas MP for Brighton Pavilion & Leader of the UK Green Party

Run for Rise

In its fourth year, the 8K Undercliff Run is one of the main fundraising events for local charity, Rise. It is a unique, women-only run along the bottom of the famous chalk cliffs from Saltdean towards Brighton Marina and back, with the cliffs on one side and the sea on the other. Women of all ages and from all walks of life gathered at the start line, cheered on by family and friends, all with one common objective – to get out there and actively show support for Rise while raising valuable funds. Angel Collins was the first woman to cross the finish line in 33.20. Runner up Nicole Clark came in at 34.20 with Anita Bungaroo finishing third in 36.00. Sponsors of the 8K Undercliff Run included Sweatshop and Studio57 with prizes donated by Breathe Unity Network. For the first time walkers and families could get involved too and show their support by taking part in the 8K Undercliff Walk for Families.

P

lanning laws brought cheers and tears in the city this week. There was applause for planning enforcers who served an enforcement notice on owners of an historic building on Hove seafront, originally built in the 19th century as Turkish baths, after they failed to respond to requests to clean up the property. Medina House on Kings Esplanade is now in a dilapidated state after years of neglect and it’s become a target for squatters. The owners have six months to wash down and repaint the southern and western elevations; remove the breeze blocks from the window openings and reinstate windows and glazing; repair and make good all the windows and doors including reglazing as required; repaint all external timberwork including window frames, door frames and soffits; re-render the eastern elevation of the property. On the other side of the ledger, there have been complaints that enforcers are being petty after ordering Pink Floyd star David Gilmour to pull down a beach hut at his £3m seafront mansion in Hove or face prosecution. The council said the yellow hut the rock star uses to house

A council spokeswoman said the hut must be gone by 1 October or the authority will issue an enforcement notice. But Pink Floyd fans think it’s just picking on Gilmour because he is who he is. Lawrence Stephen said: “To coin a phrase, it’s the dark side of the planning laws”. What do you think?

There are a whole host of new and improved services and facilities on offer to the local community, and I urge residents to use these. It makes financial and common sense to find ways in which we can bring together our services and save money. Having staff from different departments working side-by-side improves communication between them, and provides a regular and recognisable link to the community they are working in – which is key to providing excellent services.

A real delight in beauty treatments and spa therapies is coming to Brighton Marina. Spa Tara opens its doors later this month and provides visitors with a welcome addition to the offer at Brighton Marina. Located at Mermaid Walk, Spa Tara is the perfect place for complete relaxation and pampering in state-of-the-art facilities and total privacy. Offering a whole range of massage therapies and beauty treatments, Spa Tara has been designed to the highest standards and offers a place for relaxation and indulgence based on a holistic and natural approach to physical and spiritual wellbeing.

Spa Tara is the only place in Brighton and Hove to experience the latest technology in the anti-aging war: Endermology. The endermolift is a 100 per cent natural anti-aging technique that redensifies the skin depth and erases the signs of aging. It offers immediate results, including a healthy glow and a natural lifting effect. The LPG systems that Spa Tara are offering also help with cellulite reduction, aging lines and double chin reduction, to name but a few, and we can’t wait to give them a go. They are also offering loyalty cards, so each time you go your visits get more and more cost effective. Go to the website www.spa-tara.co.uk for a full list of treatments and prices.

W

e’re dying for a fix in Brighton and Hove. Fifty of us – mostly under 40 – lose our lives each year after taking drugs. We are consistently found to be the drug death capital of Britain. No wonder some of our leading public figures want to fix this problem and the tangle of related problems in its trail. Drug-taking is rife and, while the prices of different drugs fluctuate

with availability, it often starts out seeming reasonably cheap. And despite the best efforts of police and other enforcement agencies, the supply of illegal drugs rarely seems to suffer more than the occasional temporary blip. As with the prohibition of alcohol in America in the 1920s, it’s big business. In our tolerant city, a growing number of people regard drugs and

righton and Hove has one of the most serious drug problems in the country, one that threatens not just the wellbeing and lives of individuals, but also the economic prosperity of the city. Since 1996, when I first carried out original research into drug-related deaths, there have been more than 500 drug deaths locally, mainly of men and women under the age of 40. But in that period, through Brighton Housing Trust (BHT) Detox Support and Recovery Projects (which along with CRI’s St “Until we stop Thomas Fund are the only services locally justifying drug that have abstinence as their primary focus) use as a ‘lifestyle a similar number have become abstinent and gone on to achieve ongoing recovery choice’, we will from addiction. Locally, just 9 per cent leave drug services drug free, compared to a continue to fail drug national average of 14 per cent. What saddens me is that there has been a users and our city” Government-led lack of ambition regarding recovery from addiction. However, the Coalition Government’s strategy is for a “treatment revolution” and that abstinence should be championed. I welcome this wholeheartedly. If we don’t champion abstinence, we will see more drug users, more children being looked after by the local authority, increased domestic violence, an inevitable increase in drug-related deaths, an increase in crime, increase demands on health services, and damage to the reputation of the city and, consequentially, its economic health. BHT originally adopted an abstinence approach in response to demands from clients, a message that has become stronger. Some of those who come into our service have said that originally they were either not made aware of our service or abstinence was never presented as an option. In fact, some clients have said they were actively discouraged from seeking abstinence. Unless we collectively overcome this lack of ambition, and until we stop justifying drug use as a ‘lifestyle choice’, we will continue to fail drug users and our city. What would you want for your son or your daughter if they had an addiction? An ongoing prescription of a heroin substitute or achieving a healthy and drugfree life? Recovery from addiction is possible.

Mike Weatherley

Conservative MP for Hove & Portslade

T

he drugs debate on Friday is important because it gives our community an opportunity to engage with experts in what is a huge problem for all of us in Hove and Portslade. Our local drug problem has concerned me since I got involved in local politics many years back and even more so since I was elected as Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade last year. I am proud to have organised this meeting because nothing that I know of has been done like it before. As the drug death capital of Britain, drug issues affect almost everyone locally at some point. I want to get the issues out in the open. Drug addiction and drug-related crime can break up families. Drug pushers pray on the vulnerable. Drug-related litter is left where our children play. Drug addicts break into our elderly parents’ homes. Current drug policy has been totally ineffective in stopping the “National drug policy problem but it has also created a number of unintended is created from a consequences. For example, when somebody is imprisoned for a minor perspective of punishing drug offence, they leave behind a addicts. Higher on the struggling family. Sussex Police has piloted a new system which has agenda though should be helped many people find a new life via treatment rather than stopping those who deal” imprisonment. We’ll hear more about this and other issues at the debate. More often than not, national drug policy is created from a perspective of punishing addicts. Higher on the agenda though should be stopping those who deal drugs. These organised gangs are responsible for many other crimes and need to be stopped. I have no doubt that the issue of decriminalisation will come out on the day and it will be fascinating to hear the arguments from both sides. The point that I will continue to make though is that the current system doesn’t work. Past debates have been very much closed away from the eyes of those most affected. I set up this debate as a public meeting so that my constituents can be involved throughout. I look forward to a lively discussion – with some robust opinions that I can take to Westminster so that we can really get stuck in to ridding our wonderful city of this dreadful scourge.

drug taking as increasingly socially acceptable. And of course many people take recreational drugs and suffer few if any serious ill effects – certainly in the short term. Some will tell you that drinking is a bigger risk. Although, of course, we can be fairly sure about what we’re buying in a bottle or a bar and the same can’t be said about illegal drugs. But an average of one person every week dies a drug-related death in Brighton and Hove. Many of them are on the margins of society – drifters, dropouts and street drinkers. At inquests, the addresses given are often hostels for the homeless, peopled by those who struggle in some of the squalid and sordid corners of our city. Occasionally, someone dies when their life seemed full of promise, reminding us of an unpredictability surrounding the quality and quantity of drugs. Someone like Hester Stewart, 21, a talented medical student at Sussex University, who took meow meow at a party in Brighton. At the time meow meow, or mephedrone, had not been outlawed. It has now. But the arguments for and against banning each drug designed to get round existing rules proved to be heated and long

LATEST NEWS lasting. It coincided with a row about the medical evidence about cannabis use. Alan Johnson, who was Home Secretary at the time, sacked his chief adviser, Professor David Nutt. The cannabis row demonstrated how difficult politicians and public figures have found it to speak openly and straightforwardly about the scourge of drugs. This is becoming less true though in Brighton which, with its “party town” image, is a magnet for dealers and users. Some claim the impressive treatment options here also provide a pull for addicts. And it’s hard not to believe that some of our tens of thousands of students don’t contribute towards the demand.

“Providing people with treatment not only resolves their addiction – but cuts the cost to the community by reducing offending” Caroline Lucas, the Green MP for Brighton Pavilion, caused ripples with her contributon to the debate earlier in the summer. She called for the government to decriminalise personal drug use and treat people rather than criminalise them. She wants an evidence-based approach to drug policy. She persuaded the city’s police commander Chief

Superintendent Graham Bartlett to back her call for a rational debate. Mr Bartlett said: “My officers will continue to enforce the law as it stands. However, my personal view is that while production, supply and trafficking are and should remain crimes, the use of drugs is not well addressed through punitive measures. “Providing people with treatment not only resolves their addiction – thereby minimising risk of overdose, drug-related health issues, anti-social behaviour and dependence on the state, for example – but cuts the cost to the community by reduced offending.” At the same time Mike Weatherley, the Conservative MP for Hove, was putting together a seminar intended to contribute to just such a debate. And he’s holding it in public. It takes place at Hove Town Hall on Friday (30 September). It’s free. And he wants us to turn up, listen and share our experiences and views with around 20 local and national experts. He hopes to address the question: “Are drug deaths avoidable?” Legalisation will be one topic along with some key social and practical aspects of the way we deal with the whole issue. He is honest about what a complex subject it is but his eyes were opened by a supporter who took him to see addicts being treated. Both Caroline Lucas and Mike Weatherley are members of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Drug Policy Reform. They bring different views to the debate. But they are agreed on the importance of not ducking an issue that is a matter of life and death every week in the city they represent. n

Caroline Lucas Green MP for Brighton Pavilion

A

s the local MP, I am determined to help tackle our city’s deeply sad reputation as the UK’s drugs death capital. In order to do that, we need to recognise the reality that the so-called “war on drugs” approach favoured by our Government has failed. There is now growing support within the scientific and political communities, in the police and the legal professions for a move away from the prohibition of personal drug use towards an evidence-based, public health approach to addiction. Here in Brighton and Hove, we understand more than most the consequences of a national drugs policy that is failing our citizens and communities. And given the commitment here to pioneering treatment and support programmes, we are well placed to set a positive example for other cities through new measures to reduce drug-related harms. As a member of the All Party “Dealing with drugs Group for Drug Policy Reform in Parliament, I’m working with differently will represent colleagues and local stakeholders to explore what this might mean in a real shift in thinking – practice. I recently hosted a threeany changes should be hour roundtable discussion in Brighton focusing on the introduced with great care” effectiveness of current treatment, alternative methods – and what might be done locally, drawing on best practice in other parts of the UK and overseas. It was a very positive debate, with representatives from Brighton and Hove City Council, Sussex Primary Care Trust, MIND, Transform, Sussex Partnership, the RIOTT project, Brighton Housing Trust, Release and a number of academics and practitioners – along with the divisional commander of police in Brighton and Hove Chief Superintendent Graham Bartlett – coming together to express a strong commitment to reducing drug-related deaths. The discussion touched on a number of ideas that might make a difference, providing greater social support alongside medical attention for those coming off drugs, for example. And the potential for rolling out treatment programmes and increasing the availability of tried-and-tested solutions, such as naloxone, to prevent the deaths associated with heroin overdose. Looking ahead, I’ll be taking the debate forward through close work with key agencies, healthcare professionals and community groups, to further explore what can be done. It won’t be easy. Dealing with drugs differently will represent a real shift in thinking – any changes should be introduced with great care and support from those in the field. But in the long term, I believe a more evidence-based policy will help to prevent crime, save lives and protect communities from the worst effects of drug misuse.

Students and single people face a knock at the door from council tax revenue inspectors. Jason Kitcat, the Brighton and Hove City Council cabinet member for finance, said the inspectors would carry out a thousand checks in the coming month. The move comes as part of a drive to make up a £1.1 million shortfall in council tax revenues. A report to the city’s cabinet said that people Jason were paying their bills Kitcat on time. But, it said, more discounts were being awarded to people who lived alone. And more students were claiming their council tax exemptions – with a further rise expected as the autumn term gets under way. A growing number of landlords were also claiming exemptions for empty properties during the summer holidays. The same report said that the council was on course to overspend by £1.3 million in the current financial year from its general fund. It added that there was a risk of a shortfall in “value for money” savings of about £1.8 million, adding to the financial pressures faced by the Green Party administration. Councillor Kitcat said that the savings made in previous years could be compared to “low-hanging fruit” while the savings being targeted in the current financial year were trickier to achieve.

n OFFSHORE WIND FARM FIRM TO BRING ROADSHOW TO SHOPPERS IN BRIGHTON The energy company behind plans to build a wind farm off the Brighton and Hove coast is holding an information day in the city tomorrow (Wednesday 28 September). E.on plans to set up a stall at the farmers’ market in Churchill Square, Brighton, from 9am to 5pm. The company holds the exclusive rights to apply to build a wind farm between 8 to 15 miles out to sea. It said that the site had the potential to supply about 430,000 homes with renewable electricity. Chris Tomlinson, E.on project developer, said: “We’ll be formally consulting the community on our draft proposals later in the year but, before we do, we’re holding public information events to introduce the project to the local community.” The company recently submitted a planning application to install a 330ft – or 100m – meteorological mast at the site to measure wind speeds and gather other offshore environmental data. Mr Tomlinson said: “We’re continuing to carry out environmental and technical survey work for the site. But our findings so far support our initial view that this is an ideal location for a wind farm. “The offshore mast will collect valuable wind speed data that will help to confirm this as well as measuring wave heights and sea currents, which will help us to design the best possible site layout for this location.”

n QUEEN TO HONOUR COMMUNITY ACTIVIST DURING BLACK HISTORY MONTH Black History Month starts on Saturday (1 October) with African Night Fever’s launch party at the Pavilion Theatre, Brighton Dome. Saidi Kanda from Tanzania and reggae legend Rebel Control will be playing live music sets at the event. During the month the historian and activist Bert Williams MBE is due to be honoured by the Queen. And celebrations will mark the 90th anniversary of the India Gate at the Royal Pavilion. The memorial gate was a gift from India to Brighton for caring for her wounded soldiers during the First World War when the Pavilion was converted into a hospital. There will be literary events during the month, a film festival as well as more music, photography, other visual arts, workshops, debates and food. Irene Mensah, Brighton and Hove Black History volunteer and member of the group’s artists collective, said: “Black History Month focuses on the often unacknowledged presence of black and multi ethnic individuals. The significance of celebrating this every year is that it allows the wider community to gain a new awareness of our past and present achievements as well as our communal hopes for a more united future.” She said that it includes ways of respecting our differences and celebrating what unites us.

Mark Brailsford sings at home and away

Carly Noakes, Brighton & Hove Albion women’s club captain/centre back

T

here are quite a few mouth-watering away games to contemplate and the next one is no exception. Ipswich may not be a top Premier League outfit but they have a pedigree, a reasonably experienced squad and a large atmospheric stadium in which to ply their trade. Anyone who follows The Albion’s away games will tell you the atmosphere is a special one, as it is at The Amex, but with one big difference: almost all the supporters sing throughout the game. This collective, hard-core support being herded together leads to an impressive chorus of all The Albion’s songs, the repertoire of which surely rivals any team in the country.

Away support

How long have you been with the club? 19 years – I started young! What’s been the highlight of your career so far? Playing on the same team as some Brighton Women legends; Emma Millington and Lisa Murray to name a couple.

“After the away

So what’s involved in going to an away match? Let us deal firstly defeat at Leicester with the cost. There are bargain City, Poyet was train travel tickets to be had if booked far enough in advance, encouragingly and many fans opt for travelling on the road; the motorway phlegmatic” services are often populated by Albion fans resplendent in stripes. However, let’s assume you have either a Group Save train ticket or a car share that reduces your cost. Then there is the ticket for the match itself. Most away grounds in the Championship have large away support capacity, so those who want a ticket for most away games tend to get them. The cost, while not cheap, is still good value if you compare it to other leisure activities. Now for the best bit. If you are going to the game with friends, then the experience is richer and usually more fun. You may be shocked to find that much beer is imbibed prior to the match taking place (shock, horror!) and a good laugh is generally had by all.

With a tough run of games behind them The Albion will be looking to restore their enviable away form. After the away defeat at Leicester City, Gus Poyet was encouragingly phlegmatic, which was impressive. This can only infuse the players with confidence in the manager’s methods and offer the assurance that they will bounce back and get something from the next away match. The Albion support away from home will doubtlessly be an asset at games like these and is reportedly much appreciated by Gus and his team. So, I shall be travelling with a merry band of hardcore Albion fans with whom I shall imbibe the odd beer or two and heartily sing along to the full range of Albion songs (bar the one that really gets on my proverbials, you know the one, the one that Palace sing that originated at St Pauli...). Apart from that song I shall sing heartily and get the train back via the pub for lemonade or three to either celebrate or commiserate over The Albion’s performance, in the company of great friends sharing a love of following this team. What a shame there are no more Seagull Special trains anymore. Cheers.

What is your training regime out of season / in season? We train as a squad twice a week and play our games on a Sunday, with occasional mid-week games. Pre-season generally starts six to

Do you follow a strict diet? I have a strict pre-match/training routine which consists of the right amount of sleep and food which will enhance my performance for the match/training session. What other sports do you enjoy aside from football? Does shopping count as a sport?! I don’t really have time for any other sports! Where do you love to shop? H&M, Office, French Connection, Yoma and Walk In Wardrobe – for a special occasion! What's your favourite thing to do when you're off the pitch? Spending time with my family, and socialising with my close friends. Do you follow the men's team? Yes! I’m a season ticket holder and have attended all the home and away games this season. I have seen the team through the old Goldstone days all the way through to the new Amex Stadium. I was brought up in a household which has a long generation of seagulls fans dating back to my great grandfather – in 1901!

ack in the ’70s, Albion versus Palace matches attracted huge crowds, often over 30,000. The rivalry started effectively in 1974 when Crystal Palace were relegated into the Third Division and reached the point of no return in 1976. Prior to a home match at the Goldstone Ground, Palace fans chanted “Eagles, Eagles” outside the Bo’sun Pub in Brighton to which Brighton fans replied “Seagulls, Seagulls”. Fast forward to the first round of the FA Cup in 1976. The match was drawn 2-2 at

Getting relegated from the Premier League on the last day of the season with Sheffield United What other sports do you play or are you interested in? Golf. What's the best advice you've ever been given? Always listen and then decide which information is worth remembering. If you could live anywhere in Sussex where would it be?

Palace went through winning 1-0. Incensed by the referee, Alan Mullery waved a £5 note at Palace fans and an intense rivalry was ignited further. To Easter Sunday 1989 at their ground, Selhurst Park. Palace won 2-1 but it’s the match where five penalties were given (Palace missed three of their four). It’s a record that still stands to this day. Palace matches have always been special with an intensity rarely seen or felt against anyone else. Most recently Glenn Murray chose to leave the Albion for ‘them’ after not being able to ‘agree terms’. And so the flames continue to be fanned and more history added.

Bare cheek Brian Mitchell and Joseph Nixon’s thoroughly scurrilous Brighton column

What was that? Can’t remember the name of a film, book, song or thing? Mike Hunter’s the man with the answers...

The Smiths’ ‘Hand In Glove’ was originally entitled ‘Gland In Hove’. The title was changed after Radio 1 DJ Mike Read banned it when he vomited in disgust upon hearing it. Aaron Spelling’s 1990 follow-up to Dynasty was set and filmed in Hove. Wilbury Grove was aired on NBC and featured a cast of largely elderly, retired, middle-class couples who had little or no social interaction. Notable storylines included ‘the litter tray quarrel’ and the controversial ‘hosepipe ban’ episode. The series is not generally regarded as having been a success and only ran for three series.

I can understand your frustration, because this book really is a ‘treasure’, but so well-known I can only assume you must have been living on a ‘desert island’.

To think of a response that hopefully resonates with the other cyber observers and then type it out and beat other crazies with more wit, charm, smut, filth and randomosities, is the ultimate challenge of my game. Conceiving the sentence game was more of a shared experience than announcing that my gran used to call me after her poodle Sophie.

Hove’s answer to Harrod’s – Simmonds’ Department Store, established in 1906 – was considered the most opulent in Europe. Six storeys high, it ran half the length of George Street, and sold every imaginable luxury, from Lalique birds to Eric Linklater novels. It was destroyed by fire in 1938, while, due to an administrative oversight, not insured. Never one to be defeated, the proprietor, HG Simmonds, was soon back in business as a tramp.

Dear Mike, I remember, when I was a young lad at primary school, our teacher, Miss Bellingham, reading to us a story that made a great impression on me. It was a rivetingly exciting seafaring tale, truly a ‘yarn’, spun around pirates, mutiny, a mysterious map and a quest for a buried horde of gold. The novel’s narrator was a boy called Jim Hawkins, also the central character, and, in many ways, the book was his ‘coming of age’ story, his ‘bildungsroman’ if you will. There were many colourful characters in the tale – such as Blind Pew, Billy Bones and Squire Trelawney – but the one I recall most vividly was the peg-legged, eye-rolling, villainous yet endearing creation Long John Silver, with his pet parrot, Captain Flint, who would perch on his shoulder. I seem to recall that there have been many stage, television and film adaptations of this book, yet cannot for the life of me recollect its title. Several years of enquiry – letters to the British Library, extensive internet searches, trawling of book stores high and low – have yielded

K is the kind of person who would never fail to follow such an innocent opener with something truly outrageous. What would it be this time? Going undercover with the Triads? Having an affair with an ageing rock star? “What?!” I gasp, eyes shining with expectation. “I’ve bought a beach hut. In Clacton.” Oh. As K sips her hot chocolate (no caffeine after 4pm, darling, not these days), I struggle to keep the disappointment from unfurling across my face like a musty carpet. “You see, I was down there for an interview and I just fell in love with them. They look like little dolls houses, all done out in blues and greens and violets. So sweet!” “Well...” I genuinely can’t think of anything to say. “At least one of us is finally on the property ladder.” My normal reaction to hearing K talking about something so uncharacteristically domestic would be to knock her unconscious with a sharp blow to the temple then check behind her ears for government-issue microchips, but then this isn’t an isolated incident. Of late, I have been increasingly of the opinion that my entire generation has grown old before its time. “We don’t even go out clubbing any more!” I rant, a few days later, in M’s kitchen. “We just traipse from dinner party to dinner party, and have one

Brighton is a dressing up box for the mind, spirit and soul. It’s compact but once in it, it is expansive with possibilities. You get out of a city what you put into it, I’ve put work, tears and imagination into living here for the past 10 years and suddenly I’m enjoying touring Russia with Melodies Of Boney M.

After a long spell as a prominent local celebrity, Pete Jarrettte found himself discovered through his Facebook profile and projected into a new role as male lead in the Moscow-based band, Melodies Of Boney M, which features one original group member. Peter will be performing with the band in Russia on 1 October and is preparing for a European Christmas tour.

Celebcity with Jo Brooks All the fun of the Shakedown Festival, Scottish funny lady Janey Godley and sushi sans fish

SHAKE IT DOWN S

Example hakedown Festival was a storming success last week, with a whole host of cutting edge dance and indie talent descending on Stanmer Park. The weather held, allowing festival-goers to get down from 2pm till 12am across three stages of live acts. Here at JB-PR we were torn between Ed Sheeran and Example as the best acts of the day, with Razorlight as a close second. We chilled out backstage with the artists, taking in the particularly outrageous outfits of Razorlight’s new line-up, which seemed to mix rock ’n’ roll with a bit of Navajo chic! Not only did Ed Sheeran deliver on stage but he was lovely with the crew, too, even signing autographs while he stopped off for some coffee. Artists’ demands remained surprisingly low-key; a big delivery of Nando’s hot sauce in the catering tent clearly had Example’s name all over it, although he seemed a bit disappointed by the shortage of Doritos (festival teething problems we were assured!). The JB-PR girls caught up with Rubylux over lunch, with one of them kindly showing us his Welsh dragon boxers! The VIP area thankfully maintained a bit more sophistication, with those lucky enough to gain entry sipping on champagne and getting down to DJ Judge Jules. Out in the main field the Supercharged dance stage was buzzing from start to finish, with acts such as local boy Krafty Kuts and Radio 1’s Zane Lowe killing the decks until 2ManyDjs wrapped it all up in style with a stellar finishing set. All in all it was a fantastic day, and once we’ve got rid of this Shakedown comedown it’s all eyes fixed on next year’s event!

NICE TO SEE YOU, TO SEE YOU NICE

Anybody who has had the pleasure of visiting us at the JBPR office will know that we have a resident pooch. Little Bruce the Jack Russell (named after none other than the inimitable Bruce Forsyth) is a bit of a celeb himself in the doggie world. I was chuffed, therefore, when he took me along to Brighton’s Pup Aid in Stanmer Park last week to meet some of his famous pals. Although Bruce didn’t enter the contests himself, we cheered on his fellow canine celebs, including dogs owned by Harry Potter star Mark Williams, Monty Python’s Carol Cleveland and The Bill’s very own Chris Ellison. Pup Aid was organised by TV Vet Marc Abraham to raise awareness about the right way to find a dog, a cause close to both mine and Bruce’s hearts. The TV presenter Annabel Giles and The Apprentice’s Laura Moore also joined us on the day. With all these famous faces around, Bruce felt right at home. See Pup Aid in Latest People, p4.

GODLEY THE CREAM OF COMEDIANS

"Scotland’s funniest woman”, as crowned by none other than The Scotsman, descends on Brighton this October as one of the Brighton Comedy Festival’s hottest tickets. Janey Godley, the award-winning Glaswegian stand-up, bestselling author and playwright will be making her Brighton Comedy Festival debut with The Godley Hour, fresh from tickling funny bones in Edinburgh. As a frequent panellist on BBC Radio 4’s Just A Minute, Godley has become a household name and is one of my favourite female comedians. Her fresh and striking life-story, which I read in her gripping autobiography Handstands In The Dark, is a deeply personal and harrowing tale which makes ‘the McCourt family look like the Von Trapps’ according to The Observer. The Godley Hour runs as part of the Brighton Comedy Festival 2011 at 9.15pm in the Pavilion Theatre on 8 October. If you want to win a copy of Godley’s stunning autobiography please send your name and details to info@jb-pr.com answering this question: What city in Scotland is home to both Janey Godley and fellow comedian Billy Connolly? Competition closes 30 September. Good luck!

A TASTE OF SUSHI – WITHOUT THE RAW FISH Brighton’s top chefs will compete to make the finest sushi dishes, utilising only vegan food, in order to highlight the dangers of over-fishing our oceans. Those taking part in Moshi Moshi’s Vegan Challenge this Thursday as part of the Brighton & Hove Food & Drink Festival will be using Heather Mills’ Redwood vegan products to craft their individual dishes adding a sprinkle of celebrity to proceedings. There’s still the chance for you to get involved too: to help judge the winning dishes, head to Moshi Moshi and buy a ticket. The event begins at 7pm and costs £25, which will cover all food and a glass of saké.

Going to town Andrew Kay raises a glass to celebrate the first birthday of The Townhouse Kemp Town

T

he Townhouse Kemp Town opened its doors one year ago and since day one has gone from strength to strength. Creating a name for itself as a new destination restaurant in Brighton, The Townhouse has become a haunt for both locals and tourists alike and even a few celebrity customers. Speaking to Harry Woodhams, general manager of The Townhouse, he tells us of the weeks running up to the opening: “After living in Kemp Town myself for a few years, I was already excited about the prospect of serving such a great community. I had so many people chatting with me in the streets expressing their excitement at the revival of this well established restaurant. People were joining our Facebook group weeks before the opening to keep up to date with the renovations.” The opening weeks proved very exciting for The Townhouse team and they rapidly developed a loyal and regular clientele. Now, a whole year on, The Townhouse is preparing itself for another exciting year ahead. As well as the conventional dining facilities, they have a fully equipped function room, with TV, internet, sound system and even an A3 printer should you need it! So whether you are planning a simple dinner, a business meeting, conference or private party they are clearly ready to assist you with all your needs. I visited the restaurant and was overwhelmed by the standard of food they were serving. With a refreshingly small menu, everything was clearly made on site. Musa Jobe, head chef, said: “Creating a menu to suit a Brightonian was very different to creating one for the London audience that I was used to. But I truly enjoyed creating this new menu,

with all the great local produce that is available here in Sussex. Creating the new vegetarian dishes, and getting such great feedback from our guests, has helped us as a team to get where we are today. I’m now creating our new autumn menu and you’ll always find new dishes on our specials board to keep tempting you back.” Dining at The Townhouse Kemp Town is always a pleasure. On my first visit the service was second to none and it was great to see the same

The team at The Townhouse have clearly had a great year and, as usual, I felt at home. But what are their plans for the future? Harry updates us: “Well, where do I begin? We have already done so many exciting things, from wedding receptions, charity launch nights, catering for film crews and providing street bars at Brighton Pride. Right now we are preparing ourselves for another fun Christmas and the new autumn and winter menus to keep everyone warm. After that, who knows where we’ll go, we can only say that our aim is to keep our customers well fed and happy.” I had a great time at The Townhouse, meeting the team, who are all equally passionate about the restaurant; what it has and can achieve. I truly wish them all the very best for the future. It’s a delight to find an entire team that genuinely cares about a business as passionately as they do.

Dear Jacquie Your queries about natural health answered by Jacquie Lane from the College of Naturopathic Medicine “I’m 50 years old and facing the dreaded menopause. Is HRT the only solution to the problems that may follow?” SB, Brighton Marina Please see the start of the menopause as the beginning of freedom! This is how it is viewed in many other countries. Natural therapies such as acupuncture, herbal medicine and homeopathy can be enormously helpful in treating menopausal problems. However, since dietary and lifestyle changes can have such a huge impact on the classic menopause symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats and low moods, I suggest that you start by making some everyday changes to help yourself. An area to pay particular attention to is your bone health to help prevent osteoporosis. Oestrogen is very protective of bone health and declining levels during and after the menopause can cause the classic symptoms

mentioned above. You can help protect your bones by having a good selection of naturally occurring calcium and vitamin D foods. Good levels of calcium are found in broccoli and green leafy vegetables, sesame seeds, almonds, dairy foods, and tinned salmon with the bones mashed in. Vitamin D is plentiful in oily fish, eggs and dairy products. And don’t forget to get natural daylight every day, even when the sun is absent from Brighton! Vitamin K, boron, zinc, and magnesium are also essential for keeping bones strong. Reducing fizzy drinks, saturated

fats, alcohol, caffeine, sugar and salt would be helpful for bone health, heart health, and to prevent or reduce hot flashes. A group of foods called phytoestrogens are useful for helping the body replace some of its naturally lost oestrogen levels. Foods containing these include soya, flax seeds, oats, chick peas, lentils, sage and red clover. Weightbearing exercise is also very protective of bones. Combine this with some regular walking/cardiovascular exercise for heart health. Adequate soluble fibre found in fruit and vegetables and clear fluids are required for good bowel health, and essential fatty acids found in flax seeds and oily fish are good for joints and heart health. Our moods can also fall at this time and many women find relief with St. John’s Wort. However, as with all medicinal herbs, a health history case-taking consultation would be required to ensure that the herb would be safe and useful for you. See your health professional for advice. If you have a general health query that you would like to raise here you can email Jacquie at healthqueriesforWave@naturopathy -uk.com. Please note that Jacquie cannot enter into individual correspondence unless your query is chosen for publication.

Jacquie Lane is a lecturer at the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) and the Director of Studies at CNM in Brighton. Jacquie also runs her own nutrition clinic in Brighton and manages a biological testing lab specialising in digestive issues.

s you leave the comforting bustle and civilisation of the university town of Aarhus and head further east into the hinterlands of Djursland, the ‘nose’ of Eastern Jutland melting into the Kattegat, a tingle of anticipation fizzes through your limbs. It was from this peninsula of proud pines, cascading hills and gentle coasts that intrepid bands of Danish Vikings sailed forth to bestow a plethora of Danish place names upon neighbours near and far. The Norman town of Aptot, for instance, derives its name from the present day Ebeltoft, a mere 30 km from Lübker Golf Resort. Having navigated our way to the Lübker resort, with little help from the sparse signage, we were greeted politely at reception and escorted to our spacious two bedroom apartment, which was furnished and equipped to a very high standard (Bang & Olufsen electronics) in modern Danish design. Although it was tempting to prepare our own meals and enjoy them on the massive hardwood deck overlooking the closing green of one of the three nine hole layouts comprising the golf courses, the delights of the brasserie restaurant beckoned seductively.

most enjoyable as its wider fairways afford the opportunity to open one’s shoulders, while The Forest, the shortest of the three courses, is perhaps the easiest to play to your handicap. These courses are among the very best we have ever played, and they were recently ranked 14th in Golf World magazine’s top 100 Continental European courses in 2010. They may not be the easiest courses you will play, but rest assured that they will be among the most enjoyable. So where does Odin go with his sore, stiff and battle wearied muscles? The spa at Lübker Square has been constructed and furnished to create the optimal setting for relaxation, enjoyment and memorable experiences for the entire family. Children of all ages can spend hours playing games and meeting new playmates in the underground level. At the ground level there is fun and entertainment for the entire family in the subtropical baths, while the top levels are reserved for relaxation and self-indulgence. If you wish to pamper yourself, the first floor is pure paradise for beauty treatments, massage and various forms of therapy. If your body is begging for more punishment, you can visit the well equipped fitness room. Alternatively, enjoy the spectacular views from the roof terrace.

It’s not you... Each month, dating coach Tammy James answers your relationship questions I’ve been seeing my boyfriend for three months and I’m not sure it’s working out. How do I end it with him in the least upsetting way? If you’re ending a relationship and you think your boyfriend will feel differently to you, he’s going to be upset regardless of how you deliver the message. You must be clear – don’t leave any room for ambiguity. If it’s over, then make sure he knows. Consider preparing what you are going to say in advance so you say what you need to, however, be sensitive – the last thing he’ll want is a character assassination from you as well as being dumped. For a relationship of this length, I always think it’s better to do it over the phone as it’s not too impersonal, you can say what you need to and then end the conversation without any awkward goodbyes. It’s easy to end up feeling negative and guilty about this, however, you’re doing the right thing. It’s not fair letting someone else continue to invest emotion into

the relationship if you can’t see a long term future. Before you move onto your next relationship, you might want to reflect on whether you’ve found yourself in this situation before. It’s not uncommon for us to have a pattern of relationships – contact me for one-to-one coaching to explore this further. I recently checked my husband’s phone and saw he has been texting a woman in his office. The messages were fairly jokey but they were both including a kiss after their names. Is he having an affair? I wonder what led you to check his text messages. Are there other signs that have raised your suspicions? I don’t know whether your husband is having an affair or if he’s simply struck up a platonic friendship with a colleague. Before you put two and two together to make five, consider whether your husband texting people from the office is unusual and whether he’d

his October the Brighton Natural Health Centre (BNHC) celebrates 30 years as a pioneer in the city’s vibrant holistic health scene. BNHC is an educational charity founded in 1981 by Infinity Foods Co-operative to offer a range of healthy lifestyle classes. At the time its mix of yoga, tai chi, dance, massage and meditation classes was unique in Brighton and helped pave the way for a massive expansion in public awareness of holistic lifestyles. BNHC is especially proud of its independent, non-profit status and its commitment, from the beginning, to providing the very best teachers. With a wide range of classes from Astanga yoga to hula-hooping, BNHC provides inspiration, friendliness, affordability and real quality in the heart of Brighton’s bustling North Laine area. The Centre has recently introduced National Lottery funded outreach classes aimed at minority groups who do not normally have the confidence or means to attend courses at the centre. To celebrate their 30th birthday, Brighton Natural Health Centre is welcoming everybody to a free Open Day on 22 October where there will be talks, demonstrations and taster classes. Attendees can enter a draw to win one of 30 £30 vouchers to spend at the Centre. Brighton Natural Health Centre, 27 Regent Street Brighton BN1 1UL 01273 600010 info@bnhc.co.uk, www.bnhc.co.uk

usually put a kiss at the end. The classic signs that someone is cheating on you are changes in their routines and behaviour; sudden drinks after work, joining a gym or using their phone more could be signs. You might also notice a change in their behaviour towards you, either much more distant or a little clingy. If you have noticed a change and you suspect he’s cheating, you need to think carefully about your next steps. Read my blog for further advice about infidelity in relationships. My girlfriend and I recently bought a puppy. Although we both look after it, I think she’s treating it like a baby and spending far too much time with it. How do I get her to treat it like a dog? The question here is whether you are annoyed that her babying the dog is making it difficult to train or whether you feel a bit pushed out. Regardless of the issue, the solution is the same. You need to talk about setting boundaries you’re both comfortable with. How you train the dog needs to be a joint decision.   If you have a relationship problem you’d like answering please email it to info@itsnotyouitsme.co.uk Please note Tammy cannot enter into personal correspondence with you unless your problem is chosen for publication.

speedy return to Shoreham following last year’s show with the Hullabaloo Community Quire, the group were unfortunately reduced to a trio following Benny Sidelinger’s departure from the tour due to a family bereavement. With the two frontwomen addressing each other as ‘Miss Awna’ and ‘Miss Alli’ throughout, they began with Awna Teixeira’s ‘Montana’, from their latest album Follow Your Bliss. They immediately clicked with the audience, their contrasting voices worked as well as the clarinet and guitar solos. With Miss Awna switching to banjo for the breathy ‘Grey Ghost’, drummer Mikey August doubled-up on keyboard duties. An homage to a flamenco dancer friend began with a slouchy, note-bending country blues intorduction which grew into lovely vocal harmonies backed by harmonica. Neither emulators or copyists, Po’ Girl occupy a middle ground, somewhere between The Secret Sisters and Loretta Lynn. That said they were certainly not bland; they couldn’t have been with the changing of instruments and styles. ‘Le Partisan’ was introduced, and partly sung, in French, while Miss Awna later remenisced about her Portuguese grandmother in a song that evoked a sun-kissed afternoon. Following a brief explanation, the gutbucket bass appeared. This comprised a bucket, pole and string and lent ‘In The Days’ a devilishly swamplike feel, with Allison Russell snake-charming on clarinet. Collaborator J T Nero’s ‘Double Helix (Rainbow)’ was nice but again bordered on MOR. All in all it was an enjoyable show but overall lacked the edge and roughness to elevate it from being background music. Steve Clements

BLACKOUT

One-man plays stand or fall on their actors’ performance. Done well, we glimpse a complicated protagonists’ psyche; done badly, you get pompous preening. Luckily, Davey Anderson’s true-life tale of a Glaswegian skinhead charged with attempted murder really came alive in the hands of talented young actor Jack Boyle. With an atmospheric Max Wilson score and convincing performance running the gamut of emotions, the incarcerated teen’s tale of goth bravado, inner turmoil and rage, as he symbolically shaves his hair, was captivating theatre. Unfortunately saddled with a mawkish denouement worthy of a Jerry Springer “Final Thought”, this was nonetheless an accomplished work. Upstairs At Three And Ten, 20 September JJJJJ Nick Aldwinckle

If so, congratulations, you are a suitable candidate for The Humble Quest for Universal Genius! The show pits two comedians (this month: Tom Webb and Robin Buckland) against each other in a mammoth battle of wit and knowledge.

Brighton Digital Festival’s comedy evening brought headliner Robin Ince and several scientifically minded stand-ups together for a superlative lesson in intelligent humour. Each guest brought their own geeky specialism to the night: Matt Green with technology, James Ward with gaming, Helen Keen with space exploration, and host Timandra Harkness’ with mathematics. Occasional gags went over some heads, but found their target in niche sections of the educated audience. Looping around themes from his Brian Cox collaboration The Infinite Monkey Cage, Ince was in his element, freewheeling through philosophical, religious and political arguments, to the universal delight of the room.

Much of Robin Maugham’s own life reads like a work of fiction. Nephew to literary giant William Somerset Maugham, it has often been speculated that he took some inspiration from ‘Uncle Willie’ for many of his characters that featured in his many plays, novels, short stories, films and biographies. Some of Robin’s happiest years were spent at a Regency house in Brunswick Terrace, Hove, where he partied constantly with the likes of Graham Greene, Sir Terrence Rattigan and Gilbert Harding. He died in Brighton Hospital in 1981. The Servant, New Venture Theatre, 7.45pm plus 2.30pm matinee on Sunday 2 October, 1, 2, 4–8 October, £9/8, www.newventure.org.uk •Words: Chris Dyer

STAGE: AS YOU WISH Locally made but nationally promoted,The Servant comes home to Brighton at The New Venture Theatre

A

stage adaptation of former Brighton resident Robin Maugham’s The Servant will be shown at The New Venture Theatre next month. Made famous by the 1963 Harold Pinter-scripted film classic starring Dirk Bogarde and James Fox, it is often mistaken for Pinter’s own work, in fact its origins lie in Maugham’s book of the same title, written in 1948. Following the book’s success, Maugham turned The Servant into a play in 1958, but was told by one film censor that, because of its risqué content, he would never see it made into a film in his lifetime, despite Maugham always believing it was a ‘natural’ for the screen. The plot centres around the young and wealthy Tony as he returns from Africa to collect his inheritance and the subtle role reversal that takes place between him and his employee. Tony’s manservant tends to every whim, he takes care of the decorating, plumbing and can even knock out a mean chocolate soufflé. But it’s all a smoke screen as each character is locked in tangled web of power and control, swirling beneath the quaint superficiality of 1950s society. This particular production sees the central role of Tony played by Matthew Houghton (Our Country's Good, Strangers On A Train, Mojo And Festen). Tony’s insidious servant is meticulously played by Colin Elmer, he manipulates a subtle control over his master as they each vie for status amongst the Chelsea socialites.

STAGE: SUGAR PLUM FAIRY Vienna Festival Ballet Company bring Tchaikovsky’s famous classical ballet The Nutcracker to Worthing this October.

W

hile Emmy-Lee Moss, aka Emmy The Great, was writing her second album, Virtue, when her fiancé suddenly saw God and left her for the church. What began as a series of stories just after her engagement to an atheist, suddenly took on new meanings. “This has been the craziest year of my life,” says Emmy. “We got engaged quite suddenly and then overnight he became a Christian. Disappeared and gone...” Virtue often deals with people being trapped in strange situations, and the need for the characters to make their way through it. Using symbols borrowed form fairy tales and mythology, she then adds modern day icons such as industrial buildings and mushroom clouds. She calls this personal collection of myths that she fitted to her music, along with musician Euan Hinshelwood, as ‘digital medieval’. “I remember a lot of dreams,” says Emmy. “Even when I was six! I was dreaming a lot when I was making the record. My subconscious was coming into play – I wasn’t dealing with the break up of my engagement on a conscious level. “I have a close connection with my internal world,” says Emmy. “My dreams often consist of ogres and witches – they are there so that I can deal with them, turn them into stories. I’m quite optimistic, happy-go-lucky sort of person, but it gets darker when I write!” Emmy noticed that women only make it through the woods in myths if they keep their virtue. Both getting engaged and the subsequent split had the effect of her losing her direction – getting lost in the woods, as it were. And so she hid herself away at her parents’ house and went about putting the pieces back together again. Virtue is a highly literate and poetic work, with the influences of musicians and writers such as Suzanne Vega, Margaret Attwood and Angela Carter buried within, as well and many myths, ancient and modern, informing it. It all adds up to the never-ending search for identity and purpose: “I wanted to be a backing singer,” she says about the adoption of Emmy the Great as her stage name. “I wanted to have something to hand to people. ’Emmy’ is a name they called me at university, which I hated, and ‘The Great’ I added was because I hated ‘Emmy’ so much!” Emmy The Great, Duke Of York’s Cinema, 3 October, £12.50 follow me on twitter

Make sure you don’t miss any of the homegrown talent, too, as Brighton home favourites step away from the compereing mic and we get the rather excellent trio of Zoe Lyons, Stephen Grant and Seann Walsh all providing their own full-length shows. If you liked them linking comics and their regular nights, you’ll love a full-on blast of undiluted humour from each of them. Add to those the marvellous up-and-coming acts – like Nick last year – who have been spotted by well tuned comedy-finding eyes, along with the usual Best Of The Best variety boxes, plus Best of Chortle Awards and you’re spoilt for choice. Prices vary so there should be something to suit every pocket. Treat yourself – have a giggle as summer ends and autumn arrives. Brighton Dome venues, 7–22 October, http://brightoncomedyfestival.co.uk/

COMEDY: COMIC BOOM Comic Boom is back from its August hiatus, mixing up stars of the future with a storming headliner act. Fresh from Dave’s Best Joke Of The Edinburgh Festival and being nominated for the Edinburgh Award 2011 (formerly the Perrier), Nick Helm takes the wheel at the top of the bill for some fabulous comic shouting. Komedia, 29 September, 8pm, £9/7

EVENTS: THE LANTERN FAYRE The Level will see its elm trees dressed with traditional paper lanterns creating a magical backdrop against the autumn sky. Dance to percussionist bands Barulho, The Tracy Sullivan Trio, Caracazu, Maracatu and Pollito Boogaloo at the live stage. Check out the craft market with its many stalls and the creative workshops for all ages. The Level, 8 October, 12pm–10pm free

ART: ZED TALIJAN In the words of this fine artist: “In my work, I like to look for the point where abstracts and realities meet. In that undefined space a visual freedom is created that plays

FILM: WHAT’S YOUR NUMBER? (15) Director: Mark Mylod

T

here have always been drunken conversations – or sober ones – where past relationships are raked over, adjusted into a better light and examined from an altogether different perspective from the one the relationship ended with. Especially when it comes to counting quite how many of the dalliances have been written off as doomed. And here is your romcom premise. Anna Faris plays Ally Darling, a woman scared by a magazine article that leads her to believe she’s pretty much filled up her quota of relationship bids. Faced with the self-imposed prospect of being alone, she starts her comedy journey of revisiting her past partners, assessing if she made a wrong turn along the way. Aided by carefree neighbour Chris Evans, in a quid pro quo arrangement that sees her helping him avoid his blasts from the past, this is a search for true love hidden under a hastily passed by bushel. Can you guess where she might find it? Maybe there’s a twist. Maybe. Also starring Chris Pratt, Martin Freeman and Zachary Quinto. Released 30 September Showing at Odeon and Cineworld

STARS With Val Aviv

HARIES {Mar 21–Apr 20}

Your agenda clashes with other people’s as you may not be on the same page, so you can’t expect people to understand you. However, you have the power to understand them. Make the best of it and don’t undervalue yourself.

HTAURUS {Apr 21–May 21}

Your working life takes on a new dimension which adds to the feeling of living a zestful life. New challenges may rock a boat that needs to be rocked. You can really move and grow when diving clean out of the boat and taking a swim.

HGEMINI {May 22–June 21}

The highs and lows of romance leave you in a spin as an unexpected development changes everything overnight. Your feet may not touch the ground for a considerable time. Be gracefully bold, energised and wholly yourself.

HCANCER {June 22–July 22}

You love the company of loved ones in the confines of your home where peace prevails. Yet as unexpected information surfaces it could change your feelings about an important relationship. Avoiding an issue will only make it bigger.

HLEO {July 23–Aug 22}

The sudden impulse to uproot may give you an inclination of things to come. But you’re not done being sociable yet so how can you go anywhere when you’re permanently on the phone? People you speak to now hold the key to a future enterprise.

HVIRGO {Aug 23–Sep 22}

The strength of your beliefs alone can help you to find the power to express your most authoritative self. Remember, when you feel inhibition, it means you are in a position of growth. A good relationship is highly prised.

HLIBRA {Sep 23–Oct 22}

You may not be used to this kind of attention, as you’re usually so focused on other people’s feelings. Your views count a lot now. Is there something you want to say? You now have a voice that is louder than it has been in a long time.

HSCORPIO {Oct 23–Nov 21}

Disruptions in your routine will only feel like they are coming from outside forces if you haven’t realised that a part of you has been changing. Is it time to make a bold move towards a new goal? You may want to keep a low profile but there’s little opportunity for that.

HSAGITTARIUS {Nov 22–Dec 20}

Fancy a healthy dose of teamwork? Sure, you’re amazing and can achieve a lot in isolation, but to do that now will be to your own detriment. You realise the value of your unique abilities but the combined value of a group is even greater.

HCAPRICORN {Dec 21–Jan 19}

If someone needs a job doing well, who are they going to call? You, that’s who! So while you may feel upset by a niggling lack of power, remember that personal power is knowing what you have the power to change and acting on it.

HAQUARIUS {Jan 20–Feb 19}

Something unexpected may spur an instinct of flight. Yet like a prisoner who fears the outside world, are you happier with the devil you know? Embark on an adventure into the unknown as there is nothing to fear yet everything to gain!

HPISCES {Feb 20–Mar 20}

It’s been a difficult time juggling financial responsibilities which clash with idealistic hopes about the future. Tie up short term loose ends now, even if it means holding fire on a few long term plans. Things may yet change in your favour by then.

Mark Lawson Talks To Diana Rigg BBC4, 10.30pm Dame Diana Rigg talks to Mark Lawson about her 50 year career, from The Avengers sex symbol to classic acting heavyweight. Mother Love and Rebecca, to The Morecambe And Wise Show and Extras, as well as her early life in India, this is a remarkable interview.

A cowboy and a soldier live with a horse, whose birthday it is, and their home gets stolen by mysterious vandals who lead them on a merry dance, all while Horse wants to learn piano.

thursday 29 Shirley BBC2, 9pm Shirley Bassey has a most remarkable story, and it’s still going strong. This dramatisation follows the early life of the mixed race icon from Wales, charting her humble roots in the ’30s right through to the start of her rise to international stardom in the ’60s. Starring Ruth Negga, from Misfits and Five Daughters.

Billy Connolly’s Route 66 ITV1, 9pm The penultimate episode of this bearded trek across America sees Billy in cowboy country, as he joins ranch-hands in a cattle drive to Oklahoma City. Then he visits a ghost town in Texas, followed by – but not connected to – meeting two men who helped create the atomic bomb. Cripes! Then to a Navajo site.

The Big Bang Theory E4, 8pm Sheldon is so ace he won an Emmy! Yup, actor Jim Parsons aka Sheldon beat competition from Steve Carell, Alec Baldwin and Louis CK to take home that gong (not to mention co-star Johnny Galecki), so you might want to tune in and find out what all the fuss is about. Socially awkward geeks. Gotta love them.

sunday 2 Spooks BBC1, 9pm Some proper Spooky stuff in action tonight as radioactive material is picked up at the airport and the spy gang receive intel that a dangerous anarchist with a zen for dirty bombs has entered the country. Time for Dimitri to step up to the mark and become the honey trap you knew he was since he left Hollyoaks.

Downton Abbey ITV1, 9pm Bygone days may seem rosie in retrospect but they were pretty darn tough, even in such grand surroundings as Downton Abbey. Downton has been turned into a convalescent home for wounded officers – it is 1917 after all – and the arrival of the first patients disrupt the household. Plus some plottings afoot.

Smallville E4, 7pm All this parallel world stuff is getting rather confusing, and it’s not set to simplify as Clark Luthor surprises Clark Kent and sends him off to an alternative reality where Jonathan Kent is more than a bit miffed. Meanwhile, Clark Luthor (don’t ask why he’s still called Clark – dunno) menaces Tess a bit.

monday 3 Dispatches: Can You Trust Your Doctor? Channel 4, 8pm With recent news stories talking of overseas qualified doctors needing extra training and constant progresses in medicine requiring constant homework for GPs, it’s easy to see how failing doctors can slip through the system. Jon Snow delves deeper to find the truth.

The Gadget Show Five, 8pm This is really how a lot of us saw living in the future would be: lots of fun and button-pushing with Mary Poppins style magic to turn chores into a brand new game. Like cleaning the car. Ortis and Pollyanna become car valets for the day – wax on, wax off? Plus there’s the latest on wireless headphones and tablet apps.

The Fades BBC3, 10.30pm In case you missed Wednesday’s installment of this new fantasy horror series, here’s your chance to catch up. Paul’s visions are getting worse so Neil takes him to an ancient Fade, who pretty much confirms that this young chap is of vital importance to the forthcoming battle. Best get to the school ball then, Paul. Eh?
