O

ne of the most persistent sex offenders in Brighton has been jailed for 17 years. Michael Stanley Phillips, 35, sexually assaulted a 28-year old woman in Church Street, indecently exposed himself to a 35-year old woman in Madeira Drive and to a 23-year old woman at Dukes Mound – all just weeks after he was released from prison where he was serving a tenyear stretch for past sex offences. After receiving his latest jail term at Lewes Crown Court, Detective Chief Inspector Jez Graces said: “He won’t be able to prey on woman for the forseeable future.” Police knew Phillips would pose a threat after his release and on some days as many as 25 officers were involved in watching him. Chief Superintendent Graham Bartlett said: “This included exhaustive daily surveillance over many weeks which ultimately resulted in his arrest and conviction. Officers observed Phillips hiding in bushes watching women and often changing his clothes in an effort

Email comment@thelatest.co.uk Staying on the crime front, a prolific burglar, jailed for six years, has met some of his victims to say sorry. Duncan Campbell, 36, from Worthing, asked if he could apologise and Sussex Police set up its first restorative justice conference to be held in a prison. Campbell said: “I never thought about the victim before – hearing about the impact my offending has had on them has had a powerful affect on me and I won't offend again.” One woman victim said: “He was remorseful and said meeting us had a big impact on him. We definitely thought the process was worthwhile and it brought some closure. We want to know how he does when he is released from prison – because we have met him face to face we feel we have put some investment in him.” On a lighter note...there are beach huts and then there are Brighton beach huts.

IN BRIEF n HYDE HOUSING PLANS WIN BACKING

FOR HOMES ON PARK HOUSE SITE

Angel’s touch

One of the biggest housing associations in Brighton and Hove, Hyde Housing, will learn on 4 April whether it can build 71 flats facing Hove Park. It wants to demolish the former language school on the corner of Old Shoreham Road and Goldstone crescent and replace it with a fivestorey building and a basement car park. If the planning committee accepts the recommendation by officials, Hyde will pay the council £407,000 in what is known as section 106 money. This will go towards education, sustainable transport, jobs and preserving open spaces. Thirty of the flats will be classed as “affordable homes” with five of them fully accessible for disabled people in wheelchairs. The scheme will also include 126 parking spaces for bicycles. Forty seven people have sent in letters of objection to the plans criticising the height, the size and scale of the proposed building and its design. Hyde has failed in previous attempts to secure planning permission for this site. Councillors on the planning committee are being advised that the application is acceptable and should be granted with conditions.

ALONG THE SEAFRONT IN HOVE

Cyclists are calling for an end to the ban on bikes on the seafront in Hove. A petition signed by 159 people was presented to a meeting at Hove Town Hall last week. It said: “We petition the council to remove the ban on cycling on Hove promenade between the Peace Statue to the end of Hove Lawns.” Brighton and Hove City Council cabinet member Councillor Pete West formally noted the petition. His colleague, Councillor Ian Davey, is expected to ask officials to look at the request more fully in the coming months. At present, the cycle path runs along the comparatively narrow pavement next to the road in Kingsway in Hove. It runs along the wider promenade for a short stretch behind the King Alfred Leisure Centre. The council currently permits its own staff to use motor vehicles along the prom. Powered mobility scooters are also allowed on the prom.

BREAKING THE ICE

Dr McFadyen, a married father of two who turned 40 last month, joined Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust – the trust that runs the Royal Sussex – just over two years ago. His background is in orthopaedic surgery. He trained in Cape Town – at Groote Schuur Hospital where Christiaan Barnard carried out the first heart transplant – and in Bristol, Oxford and even a brief stint in New York. He lives in Shoreham. He needn’t have worried about getting to know his new colleagues when he started in Brighton. He said: “I arrived here in December 2009 just in time for that awful snow. We had that weekend when we admitted 150 patients with fractures when we normally admit about 15 orthopaedic fractures. We were putting patients anywhere where there was a spare bed. We cancelled everything else in the hospital.” He had to talk to a lot of people in a lot of departments to cope with the situation. If you’ll forgive the pun, it was one way to break the ice. He was attracted by the promise of a growing department with an increasingly busy workload. He didn’t expect to have the potential brought home to him on Day 1. He said that the regional trauma centre based at Brighton was part of a national strategy to improve poor outcomes – a poor outcome is death or disability. The strategy was prompted by an analysis showing that trauma patients in Britain had a 20 to 30 per cent higher mortality rate than those in places like Germany, Sweden, America or Australia. “We’ll be working with the ambulance service on this,” Dr McFadyen said. “If the patient is less than 45 minutes’ drive to the hospital and they’re suspected of having a severe injury, they’ll be brought straight here. Traditionally they would have been taken to the nearest hospital and if necessary transferred. This meant a delay to definitive care.” Ambulance crews cannot possibly carry all the diagnostic kit that can be found in a big hospital emergency department – “so there will be some people who wonder why they’ve been brought to Brighton, who would previously have gone to their local hospital. The reason for this is that we know this is the only way we can improve survival and outcomes. If they do have something seriously wrong with them then they really do want to be in Brighton.” He estimated that about 600 to 700 patients a year would be brought to Brighton, many on a precautionary principle. The trust already treats more than 250 major trauma patients and expects its experts to treat about 360 extra cases a year. They will be treated in an area staffed with A&E consultants as well specialists in vascular, cardiac, orthopaedic and plastic surgery. There will be neurosurgeons, general surgeons and specialist anaesthetists. And a dedicated CT scanner in A&E.

RAISING PERFORMANCE

Dr McFadyen said: “One of the biggest challenges was getting neurosurgery here. If someone’s got a serious head injury and a serious pelvic injury, we’ve had to treat one part here and one part in Haywards Heath. “The next challenge, which I think is the most important, is that the hospital has to be able to cope with throwing a whole load of resources at a single patient without taking resources away from other patients in the hospital. What we’ve had to do is put the infrastructure in place so we can do that. That has meant recruiting 120 new nursing and doctor posts. We’re about halfway into filling that recruitment.”

Iain McFadyen

The senior clinicians challenge themselves after a major incident anywhere – like the M5 coach crash – and ask if they could cope if it happened here. He said: “For trauma, every single department has to be switched on at all hours of the day. As a hospital, you have to be doing things routinely. The ‘major’ needs to be routine.” The result would be good for the people of Brighton and Hove, he said. Hospital chief executive Duncan Selbie had used the creation of the regional trauma centre as a way of raising performance. This included tackling the statistical rise – seen across the country – in mortality rates for patients admitted overnight and at weekends. He said that many of the major trauma patients in Brighton tended to have been injured in car crashes or from falling from a height. “We do have a drug and mental health issue in this area. We have a low volume of penetrative traumas – stab wounds and gunshot wounds.” Mr Selbie was working with GPs to try to reduce the number of patients coming to A&E when they could be treated more appropriately elsewhere. Dr McFadyen said that, from this week, those who really needed to be in the emergency department in Brighton would be getting an improved level of care. And though the 3Ts project, with all the building work, would bring some disruption, Brighton would end up with a 21st century hospital giving patients an even better chance of surviving and recovering a major trauma. n

LATEST OPINION

LATEST BILL Patients: Who cares? Bill Smith presents an original idea for achieving more compassionate care in our hospitals

Who cares?

M

y mother's been in hospital – well, almost – she was on a trolley for the whole weekend as no beds were available. No-one is discharged over the weekend, apparently. I found out later that hardly anyone gets beds over the weekend – hospitals are old-fashioned Monday to Friday organisations and when patients do get a bed, care is a lottery. A survey by Pulse magazine found that a third of doctors say their patients are being put at risk in NHS hospitals because of poor standards – many admit they would not refer their own family. M.D. in Private Eye said that “the best alarm in the NHS is patients speaking up when they encounter appalling care, yet the brutal suppression of whistle blowers shows how much NHS culture needs to change.” The recent Dignity In Care report at least doesn't shirk from telling the truth. I have witnessed this directly over the last few weeks: I saw patients not taken to the toilet; I saw food and drink left for them when they were unable to eat or drink and then taken away because “they didn't want it”. I saw countless nurses by day and hardly any at night. None of this was in Brighton but of course we did have a whistle-blower in the last few years.

FROM THE NHS TO OUR BANKS

Something is desperately wrong with the Health Service. My dad was one of the first people to work in the Health Service running hospitals in the West Country. I never saw anyone on a trolley. My mum and dad put their money for safe-keeping in the Trustee Savings Bank. Now, 60 years later it's Lloyds TSB and our savings are not safe. If the bank goes bust you could lose everything. Something is desperately wrong with the banks. We are a democratic society and we elect governments who set up institutions to reflect our views. After the war we decided we didn't want people to die from preventable illnesses so we set up the NHS. We also needed somewhere that people’s savings could be kept safe and maybe also used to benefit society by creating new businesses with our money as investment. The very young people who had risked their lives to keep Britain free demanded both the NHS and the TSB. My dad went from the RAF via prisoner-of-war camps to work in the new NHS and

save with the TSB. Both these institutions were set up to benefit society, both equally necessary.

WORTH THE BONUS

Now we are hearing disparate views on the NHS and the banks. Here is my view: if Mr Hester is worth any bonus for bringing his bank back to being a safe haven for us then surely it’s right that those who bring the hospitals and the NHS back to being a safe haven for us deserve bonuses too.

“We should pay NHS staff wages at least comparable with banker averages” If you pay people £50k rather than £15k you will get better, more devoted staff. We shouldn’t expect people in the caring profession to do it for love, as a vocation. We should pay wages at least comparable with banker averages and with the same bonuses, but for that money we should expect the best. I would give anyone any bonus to not have my dangerously ill mother on a trolley all weekend.

LET’S LOWER WEEKEND DEATH RATES

I’ve spent many hours a few yards away from A&E and it’s easy to see a

million improvements you could make. The death rate at weekends is 20 per cent higher so let’s not have weekends in hospital – let’s make Saturday the same as Tuesday. Supermarkets seem to manage rotas, so must hospitals. I saw one junior doctor all weekend. But on Monday morning I saw as many as in a whole series of Holby City. The NHS needs organisation like any 24/7 business. Many people dislike the words ‘business’ or ‘profit’ but I have no problem with offering Mr Lansley (or anybody capable) a £500k bonus if they can make hospitals the same on Saturday as Tuesday and bring the death rate down by 20 per cent. That’s when bonuses are earned. Let’s make a list of things we want, let’s get some talent and let’s give the talent the incentive to achieve society’s desires. Stephen Hester was hired to make RBS safe for its customers and profitable. That’s the order I’d like it to be in, anyway. It’s time to have someone doing the same for the NHS – Gerry Robinson has made great programmes on TV about re-organising the NHS. He’s a great businessman, a proven organiser, and his heart’s in the right place. Get him in and let’s sort out the real issues. Issues like: if you're going to have people on trolleys for a whole weekend then why not just convert this area (it’s called the Medical Assessment Area in the hospital my mother was in) into a ward and have proper beds and in one word: dignity.

Bill’s Shorts: What’s in them this week? ONE TO CHEER UP THE LEFT George Osborne has reduced the top rate of tax to 45 per cent (that’s not it, in case you’re wondering). No, in his speech he suggested that reducing the tax would bring in more revenues because rich people presumably wouldn’t try to avoid the tax-man. Or as they call it with poor people, defraud. So if that is true then presumably it’ll work for everyone, not just rich people. So let’s just reduce the rate of tax by five per cent for everyone. And hey, why stop at five per cent? Surely if we reduced it by say 25 per cent nobody would bother evading their tax at all and we’d get so much money into the national coffers that our debt would be wiped out. Bill for Chancellor. WEATHER UPDATE May will be unusually cold or warm or sunny or snowy, anyway, the somethingist in 167 years.

THE REAL ISSUES

I keep hearing David Cameron, Ed Milliband jokily point-scoring at PMQs. They’re ignoring the real issues. They both have conferences with nurses, doctors and unions. They both ignore patients! The word ‘patient’, if it’s used at all, is tacked on at the end of the sentence – it’s like Tesco deciding on what to sell by asking the cashiers. What about the customers? The patients must be the number one consideration as must be the customers of the banks. The NHS and the TSB are great British institutions. They both need to revert back to why they were set up: the TSB for ordinary people like me and you to save our money and the NHS for the patients, that’s us, to get the best health care. I look forward to David Cameron and Ed Milliband discussing with patients and with bank customers the way ahead for both. If any patients want their stories published write to comment@thelatest.co.uk and we will print them all online. We will also forward them to Messrs Cameron and Milliband. We also want your views on this article and your responses will immediately be printed online at www.thelatest.co.uk Bill Smith is Managing Editor of Latest 7/Homes magazine and a director of Latest TV. n

ONE TO CHEER UP THE RIGHT Still on the budget, The Guardian has been leading the criticism of the cut in top rate tax, explaining how all these millionaires are going to be even richer. I’m grateful to Private Eye for pointing out that two of the fat cats include The Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger who is only on £395,000 a year and The Guardian chief executive Andrew Miller, whose basic pay is only a paltry £572,000. The Guardian are always banging on about bonuses for success or failure, so Heaven knows what they would pay themselves if they ever increased their circulation or made a profit. Last year they lost £38 million. I know how many Guardian readers there are in Brighton so I’ll shut up now. OLD NEWS: MOTHER THERESA TO HEAD CLEAN NEWS INTERNATIONAL James Murdoch has stood down as Chair of News International. That’s obviously a really bright idea. But I like their shortlist of replacements even more. Mother Theresa, Amanda Holden (with baby) – now we know why she was in the first Sun on Sunday – or Harry Redknapp. I think it’s significant that none of them have been on the hacking list.

SPOTTED: SUNSHINE SPECIAL The sun brought the stars out in Brighton! First off was Jay from The Inbetweeners with his missus and baby son on Bond Street. TV’s Jonathan Ross was spotted enjoying the seaside. He later tweeted: “It’s sunny in Brighton. Quite lovely” – quite! Les Dennis in Subway. The less said about this the better. Nick Cave and his whole family, including his exsupermodel wife Susie Bick, were seen dining at Moshi Moshi Brighton. Chris Moyles jogging along the Brighton seafront for Sport Relief. Didn’t go quite as he’d hoped though; he tweeted a picture of him outside a shut up pier with the caption: “The plan was run 3 miles down the seafront, down the pier and back again. Think I set off too early.” Last but not least, canine stars Bruiser and Rufus of Legally Blonde – The Musical fame taking a much needed break in Pavilion Gardens. The famous mutts, one a Chihuahua and the other a good old English Bulldog, easily stole the show in the musical’s recent run at the Theatre Royal Brighton.

latest SEAGULLS Up the Albion!

Whatever the outcome of Albion’s push for the play-offs, this will have been a memorable season. With Burnley away coming up this is a good time to look at the genesis of The Albion’s current run of fine form, for it was against Burnley that the tide began to turn for the team. If the Albion do make the play-offs we may have the referee of that game to thank. It was Pawson’s decision to send off Vincelot and Barnes within the first 12 minutes of the match that sparked the revival. The Albion, on the back of a poor run could have capitulated. Then something remarkable happened. The team, re-organised superbly by Gus Poyet, rallied. Incensed by the perceived injustice of the officials decision, the crowd got behind the team in a way that still stirs the hairs on the back of my neck. Down to nine men, not only did the team rally, they were worthy of at least a point and could have won the game. The crowd also found their voice and their place in the stadium – so the formidable home run began. Whatever happens next, a top ten finish would be fantastic, thanks to that match. As for Burnley away? We owe them one.

Brighton photographer Geoff Penn captures BHAWFC’s Sussex County Cup win Brighton & Hove Albion Women’s FC beat Lewes Ladies FC 3-1 at the Sussex County FA County Ground in Lancing on Thursday 15 March to take home the Sussex County Cup. The Sea-gals scored just eight minutes in, but the teams were level come half time. Brighton cemented their cup win with a further two goals in the second half.

Sea-gals

Mark Brailsford on how to improve away form ith results going the Albion’s way up until the Notts Forest weekend, thoughts turn to the run-in to the finish line. The fact that Poyet’s men have not won away for four matches is not a great cause for concern as long as their formidable home form continues but with tough games to come against fellow play-off rivals, Albion fans could be in for a nail-biting finish to the season. If the Albion “Albion fans could win their home games then there is every chance of a playbe in for a nail-biting off place, but other teams would end to the season” have to drop enough points to make this a guarantee. Albion would also have to get something from the three remaining away matches against Burnley, West Ham and Barnsley. The shakedown for the top six will surely begin once the games in hand even out. The Seagulls might be in a slightly false position at the moment with teams around them having that crucial game in hand. But at least the Albion have the points and it’s one thing to have the game in hand, it’s another to win that game. Teams in this division seem to be adept at slipping up at inopportune moments and Albion may benefit from this. A point at Burnley and Barnsley and wins at home verses Birmingham, Watford and Reading might be enough, but as ever with predictions, I am reminded of Moltke’s dictum. General Moltke was a First World War German General who coined the phrase: “No battle plan ever survives intact after first contact with the enemy.” While it may not exactly be Sun Tzu and The Art of War, it is quite apt for football and the Seagulls in particular. Gus Poyet has been perplexed by his side’s away form. So what is so different? Factor in the state of pitches where the home team shares their stadium with a rugby club, the support of the home fans and the travelling, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was one or all of these things. Common sense would indicate that the psychology of playing away is more likely to be at the root of all ills. So, how to remedy the situation? Here are a few suggestions: 1) Get Richie Reynolds to do a pre-match build up in the dressing room along with that superb pre-match video they play at The Amex. 2) Take Gully’s Girls to play dodge the sprinkler before kickoff. 3) Ask a few Ipswich fans to roll up with that banner and unfurl it in the home fans area. If nothing else it may take the players’ minds off the distractions of playing away or the state of the playing surface.

n and off, I have been dating S for the better part of the last two years. Mostly off, actually. First time round, our blossoming romance was curtailed on our fourth date, when he took me out, bought me a three course meal, and – on a street corner, beneath a crescent moon – told me he was junking me for his exboyfriend. I turned on my heel and refused to look back. Perhaps a year later, S came into my life again. We bumped into each other at the bar of a charity cocktail party, and a little over a week later were kissing on the steps of Southwark tube. A year, I thought, had made all the difference. The two of us were older, wiser, and – perhaps most importantly of all – his ex-boyfriend had his visa revoked and was consequently in another time zone. So we dated for a few months, and it was all going well until the day Amy Winehouse died, when I had what can only be described as a ‘Britney Spears with the epilady meltdown’ and called everything off for the most inconsequential reasons. After that we drifted, with only occasional texts (usually misspelt and heavy with the scent of one too many Jagermeisters) to break radio silence. Then, on New Year’s Day, I decided to throw caution to the wind. “You’re an idiot,” I typed. “We were so good together, so why aren’t we together?”

L7 INTERVIEW explore the wreck. We actually dived it 12 times during the course of making the film in 1995, before we started the fictional portion of the movie in 1996. That was my first deep ocean expedition. Since then I’ve done six additional deep ocean expeditions, two more of which were to the Titanic. I’ve totaled 33 dives to the wreck and explored the interior of the wreck.”

TITANIC VOYAGE

What are the most striking memories you have of making Titanic? “The best moments involved getting to explore the Titanic for real. Also, walking the deck of the ship on the set was great because the set was absolutely gorgeous. It was like being on Titanic and it was pretty amazing. I think the worst memory was just the feeling that we had during post-production that everybody was against us. There was a lot of negative press that seemed to be making us look like the biggest nincompoops in Hollywood history. But we just had faith that we were doing something that was cool, maybe something that had quality. There was a really dark period. I had a razor blade that I taped to my screen on my Avid where I was cutting the film, because I was one of the three editors. And above it there was a little note that said: ‘use this in case the film sucks! [laughs.] It was a way of reminding myself that the only way out of this was to make a good movie. And in a way that pressure served us well because it made us less compromising.”

Director James Cameron talks to Latest 7 about the re-release of his blockbuster film, Titanic, this time in 3D and coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the ship’s doomed voyage Why did you decide to convert Titanic to 3D? “I think it is really exciting to bring Titanic back to the big screen after it has been gone for 15 years. There’s a whole generation of people that has never seen the film in a movie theatre. I’m a strong believer in the theatrical experience in general, but specifically for this film. When people commit three hours to sit in a dark room and share the journey with these characters, they will find that it’s very powerful.” Would you have shot the original film in 3D if the technology had been available? “If I was filming Titanic tomorrow, I’d be shooting it in 3D for sure. It wasn’t on anybody’s radar though in 1995 when we started this movie. It was a good 10 years later that the 3D market really became economically viable.” What is involved in converting Titanic to 3D? “Every shot in the whole film becomes a visual effect. We’ve got a team of 300 artists working on it and the process involves assigning depth to every object and every part of every character in the frame. My team of technical guys have worked for us for years on all the native 3D photography that we’ve done, so they know what good 3D is supposed to look like. They process it and then they show it to me. Then I go through it frame by frame to get the depth right. Then they have to do what they call ‘clean up,’ hand painting in the missing information. Every time you start moving objects around in a flat picture that was photographed 15 years ago, you have to paint in the missing part of it and it has to be done flawlessly. We’re not trying to elicit applause because we’re having to work so hard. We’re trying to show that there is a way to do conversion so that it is virtually indistinguishable from actually shooting in 3D.” Why do you think the story of the Titanic continues to be so compelling? “There have certainly been many things that have happened since 1912 that have been much more horrific in terms of loss of life: two world wars, genocide, the use of nuclear weapons against

human targets—all kinds of horrible things. But there’s something enduring about the Titanic story. I think that it’s because it’s like a perfectly written novel that really happened. There was an arrogance among people who thought they could take this ship with over 2,000 people onboard, going full steam through a known ice field, despite the warnings. They thought ‘It can’t happen to us. We’re too big to fail.’ Now where have we heard that before? There are so many parables for our contemporary existence in this story. When a disaster like that strikes, you have some people acting as cowards and others acting as heroes, with a sense of self-sacrifice. You also have the class structure. They saw the iceberg ahead but they didn’t have time to turn; the ship was too big, it was going too fast. The metaphors of Titanic just keep repeating themselves throughout history. I think that’s partly why it continues to fascinate. It is also a love story of course. But there’s really something much more than that going on here. It’s a love story overshadowed by death.”

“There are so many parables for our contemporary existence in this story” Does that help to explain why Titanic was such a huge hit? “I’ve had a lot of time to think about why Titanic was the number one movie in every single market around the world where it played. It was speaking to people on levels that transcended language and culture. It transcended the rich or poor status of people’s lives and it spoke to people as human beings. It examines what love means in the context of death. It looks at our relationships and how we live our lives, and how we deal with other people.” What does the Titanic mean to you? “The Titanic has a great deal of meaning for me personally. I made the film because I wanted to

Would you like to see other movies converted to 3D? “There are a lot of films that I’d love to see converted. Hopefully with Titanic 3D and with Star Wars 3D we can start to show that there is an economic model for this that makes sense. But we think it has to be done right. There’s no point in doing it and creating all that ballyhoo only to have some kind of compromised experience. The 3D adaptation of Titanic is a very natural one, because my style was already set up to enhance the idea of depth. That may not apply to a lot of filmmakers and a lot of styles, which is why if movies are starting out now and they want to release them in 3D, they should just shoot them in 3D. With Titanic, we’re spending this kind of time and energy to simulate after the fact what that native photography would have been like had I been there with the 3D camera. It is a daunting task. And we’ve set the bar very high.” Titanic 3D is in cinemas on 6 April 2012.

hen the first rays of sun break through the bleak mood of winter, jumpers come off, sunglasses go on and suntan lotion is usually forgotten. Keeping the whole family occupied doesn’t need to be a challenge with the range of activities available for all ages. Brighton’s rich history and fashionable contemporary scene make entertainment easy to find whatever your interest. Take advantage of the wealth of culture right on your doorstep and experience the best of local produce or even educate the kids without them realising. Living in one of the top tourist destinations in the country, you barely need to step out of the house to be somewhere, with literally hundreds of top events and attractions within a stone’s throw. For a free day out (if you can ignore the pleas for ice cream), Brighton beach is an old favourite, but you’d be well advised to do away with the notion that the city is a suntrap and nothing else. With a bustling city centre and the countryside only a few miles away, Brighton can serve up a truly unique and varied range of experiences, from boutique shopping to extreme sports. Events like the Brighton & Hove Children’s Festival provide distraction for children while the parents can take a break, unless they want to join in for some great family bonding. Travelling a little further afield you can discover a host of theatrical performances at Worthing Theatre, with appearances from famous faces adding a dash of glamour. For those wishing to stay close to home however, Brighton provides more than enough entertainment every day of the week. Leaving the kids with a sitter might be the preferred option when sampling the city’s more cultured offerings. Famous venues, restaurants and locations cater for those in search of a child free environment, although they probably won’t be quiet affairs. Whichever way you look at it, there’s no excuse for complaining about being bored in this city.

An urban oasis Kirsty Taylor from Uniquely Organic EcoSpa, Hove Time for some fun April Fools’ Day is a fun start to a month often associated with sunshine as well as showers and it sets the pattern for a period of lightening up after winter. April is the time to start casting off our cares and winter woollies and embracing a new season. Changing the way we look makes us more psychologically attuned to change and we feel the urge to prepare our bodies as well as our minds for some uplifting weeks ahead. Well, a month that starts light-heartedly needs to continue on a similar note, doesn’t it?

Spring fever Massages are a good investment health-wise for in-between seasons as people often get ill at these times. A professional massage neutralises harmful hormones and can help improve your immune system. The feel-good hormones of dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin (the hugging hormone) are increased, while hormones associated with stress and lowering the immune system are reduced. Uniquely Organic offers a sumptuous selection of massages and who knows, feeling amazing in yourself may spur you on to apply for that new job or course.

Scrub & polish It’s time for pampering and where better to start than with an organic spray tan or a pedicure to smarten up those tootsies? At the EcoSpa, we offer some great beauty treatments to suit the season. An organic spray tan costs just £25 and you emerge with a sun-kissed look, without any of the harmful chemicals often associated with fake tans. We also have a Scrub Up And Glow tanning package for £57, which includes a Body Delight treatment (a thorough exfoliation) and then natural-look tan two days later to boost your confidence. Feet, encased in boots for the last few months, deserve attention and we offer two superb detailed organic pedicures. Choose a trendy Zoya Spring nail varnish to complete your flip-flop look and be footloose and fancy-free.

ick of shaving? Weary of waxing? You’re not alone. With the weather warming up, we want to be able to shed those layers and step out in shorts, cropped trousers and skirts, or swimwear on the beach. But milk bottle legs aren’t our biggest concern (we have self-tanning lotions for that!). Unwanted hair can be a small niggle or a huge worry, but it can be effectively treated with laser hair removal. Now is the perfect time of year for Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment, as it isn’t suitable when you have a sun tan. “It’s ideal because we can start courses of treatment before your holiday and then you’ll be ready for wearing shorts and summer clothes, and of course showing off your lovely gleaming body on the beach, cruise ship or poolside,” explains A New You in Brighton, who use the Gentlelase system. “If you’re going on holiday during the course, you’ll need to wait approximately four weeks for your suntan to fade before we undertake a further treatment.”

Who’s it for? For women it may be the bikini line, legs, underarms or face; for men (yes, laser hair removal is extremely popular with men too!) it can be

Forget about shaving rashes and stubble a few days later – IPL effectively treats the area, leaving skin smooth and hair regrowth to a minimum or none at all! It’s not for everyone though, as Xenia from Beauty Works in Portslade (who use the Ecolite IPL system) explains: “If you’re blonde, laser hair removal doesn’t work well – the paler your skin and darker the hair the better. The laser light is drawn to pigment in the hair which then denatures it.” The hair can then grow back but with continued treatment, very “Skin is left smooth little or no hair grows in the end.

But how often would you need to go? “On average six, in none at all!” some cases eight treatments are needed,” says Shadi of the Shadi Danin Medi-Spa who use the Saprino XL system. “This is if it’s not hormonal or a genetic problem.” Treatment on hormonal hair growth – the upper lip – will reduce hair growth but results are not permanent.

Safety first On your first visit, a thorough consultation will be made. A patch test on a small area of skin will find you the correct setting of the laser and how your skin responds. This is essential before treating a larger area of skin. As mentioned, results cannot be guaranteed. Depending on the hair and the number of treatments, regrowth will be lighter and finer or non-existent. Start a course of treatment now ready for the summer season ahead.

ANDREW KAY’S FOOD & DRINK

Food & Drink Andrew Kay test drives Latest Dining Deals and books a table at Hotel Seattle

The deal is on W

hen first approached with the Latest Dining Deals concept I admit to being ambivalent. There has been so much made of coupon dining in the last year and some of it rather bad. I’m also most likely to choose where I dine based on what I feel like eating rather than being offered a coupon with a massive discount. The proof, as they say, would be in the pudding. As a mere pudding would not be evidence enough, this would be getting the full three course trial. So I embarked on my very first Latest Dining Deals adventure. It starts online and it’s easy enough to find on our home page at thelatest.co.uk, to the right and down a bit. Click there and it will take you to the Latest Dining Deals page. Once on the page I found a list of participating restaurants for that day, lots of choice and some real bargains. But I was looking for something a few days ahead. Was that possible? Yes it was, I quickly found at the top of the page a way of making an advance booking. Once on the date that I required a further list of restaurants popped up and in amongst them Hotel Seattle. I have enjoyed many great meals at Hotel Seattle so I was happy to “A short while later the fill in the form when I had phone went ping and there hit the red ‘Book A Table’ button. I then had to select a time, confirm the it was, signed sealed and number of people and fill delivered so to speak” in a simple form with my mobile number. The mobile number is the way you receive your booking confirmation, by SMS text message, but also the way that you pay your booking fee which is £5 for a table of two and three and £10 for tables of four and over. A short while later the phone went ping and there it was, signed sealed and delivered so to speak. It really could not have been simpler, and the £5 booking fee is a small price to pay when your food bill is literally halved. On the Saturday I went down to the Marina with Mr R and his mum. I simply showed the waiter my SMS message and he welcomed us to a great table in the glazed terrace. No mention was made of the deal and the only time that it came up was when the bill arrived and there the 50 per cent discount had been clearly made on our food. The restaurant at Hotel Seattle is as good as ever and very soon we had a good bottle of muscadet, sparkling water and a plate of divine home made bread. Mr R started with an excellent chicken and foie gras parfait with toast. Mummy R chose scallops, a generous portion with crisp pancetta and cauliflower puree. I went all retro and had whitebait, really good whitebait, with a chilli mayo that had been made with sweet chilli sauce, an odd idea but one that worked rather well with the crisp little fishies. For main course Mr R had chorizo with mash and confit onions. He loved it but wanted more onion. It was no problem and an extra portion arrived pretty fast. Mummy R had roast chicken with roast season fruits and vegetables. It too was great, although rather large and she did struggle to finish.

27

I chose the slow roast pork belly with bubble and squeak and I loved it. It should have come with glazed carrots but very obligingly they allowed me to change that to cabbage. The pork was very good, the crackling crackled and the bubble was bliss. I was a very happy Latest Dining Dealer. Mummy R failed to get to dessert but when pushed had coffee and petit fours, very pretty they were too. Mr R had an espresso creme bruleé which was damned fine and I had a good bread and butter pudding and a brilliant cup of piping hot espresso. I was glad of the coffee too when the manager brought over two different glasses of grappa for me to try. He is a big grappa fan and has quite a collection, an eye opening collection too. My memories of grappa always come with a stinker of a headache but these were very nice indeed, fragrant, delicate even. A real revelation. I suggest you ask him to advise as I am certainly a convert. All in all a first class meal for which our bill came to around £35 for the food with drinks on top, £12 a head for three courses. Now that really is a deal and frankly, even if we had not been on a deal and had paid £24 each for the food I would have been very impressed, Hotel Seattle looks great still and the kitchen serves up a treat. There are other great deals on their menus that are worth looking out for as well.

SUPERB SHOW JOURNEY TO X, The Old Market Theatre, 17 March JJJJJ

I

t started with a bang and the pace didn’t let up for an hour in a rocking, riveting piece of modern theatre. It had all the energy and laughs of a teenage party. It definitely had the X Factor, and I don’t mean Susan Boyle. Olivia Fallon played the pregnant teenager in search of an abortion in an understated and totally believable way. The scene with her ex-boyfriend (who had made her pregnant) was the stand-out moment and Charlie Suff played the mixed-up boy, Dave, so well that he got a round of applause as he left the stage. If they were remaking Rebel Without a Cause, look no further, this guy is the real deal. Felix Brown played Vince, the nasty kid, with just the right amount of Saturday night West Street bravado and cowardice as Jamie-Leigh Gilbert provided amazing modern street dance in a fabulous dance troupe. I loved the fast exciting direction but in a rave review you should have a criticism, so I would have liked the actors to always play naturally to each other and not to the audience at all. But hey, I’m still giving it five stars! I’ve got to go now as I’m going to try and sign up Olivia, Charlie, oh hey, all of them for my TV show, I’m not joking. Journey to X by Nancy Harris and ACT Brighton (14 to 17 year olds) is brilliant. Bill Smith

UKRAINIAN NATIONAL OPERA OF KHARKIV IN LA BOHÈME

Ellen Kent productions told this tragic love story well, although the sets were flimsy and rather cramped. Mimi (most beautifully sung by Elena Dee) was properly the centre of attention, rather than the pranks of the men. The lovers’ separation in Act Three was truly chilling. Andriy Kalyuzhniy gave Colline’s often sentimental ‘overcoat’ aria real, quiet sadness. As Musetta (Maria Tsonina) prayed to the Virgin, she was poignantly upstaged by Schaunard (fine young baritone Volodymir Kozlov) silently taking Mimi’s dead hand. By then, all the joking had stopped. Puccini is very well served by Gheorghe Stanciu’s fine and responsive orchestra.. Theatre Royal Brighton, 26 March JJJJJ Andrew Connal

Memorable moments from tonight’s X Factor victory lap

included the uncontainable Johnny Robinson’s delirious Kylie routine, and firecracker Misha B’s gutsy ‘Rolling In The Deep’. Fearless Kitty Brucknell proved fabulously game, hoisted perilously aloft a 30ft pillar throughout ‘The Edge Of Glory’.

AN AUDIENCE WITH PAM AYRES

Pam Ayres’ diminutive figure came out to a packed Pavilion Theatre and from the moment she opened her mouth, the audience were in her thrall. She presented a mixture of crowd-pleasing greatest hits, new poems, anecdotes and readings from her autobiography. Pam, witty and charming with her distinctive rustic accent, delivered her punchlines beautifully. The humour was refreshingly inoffensive, almost an anachronism in today’s world, with a nostalgic warmth that really hits the spot. This show was like having a two hour cuddle in front of an open fire, perfect for a Sunday afternoon. And nobody can say the word “Kawasaki” like Pam.

The album is the band’s fourth after the Mercury-nominated Number One debut ‘Hats Off To The Buskers’, the Top 10 follow-up ‘Which Bitch’ and 2011’s Top 20 ‘Bread & Circuses’. Here’s your chance to hear all of the top tunes before they hit the iTunes chart the following week.

The irrepressible Pauline Black has kept ska heroes The Selecter on track for 20 years since its revival, and with vocal foil Gaps Hendrickson back on board the group is producing some vital music. Hitting the stage with a revitalised The Selecter – absent founder Neol Davies’ instrumental that helped launch the whole Two-Tone movement – the band rarely let the energy slip. Still politicised, songs from new album, Made In Britain, held their own among the hits, with Black and Hendrickson rallying Brighton’s rude boys and girls into a dance crazy sweat. A vibrant end to this glorious weekend. Concorde 2, 25 March JJJJJ Stuart Huggett Did you disagree with our verdict on any of these shows?

A plethora of music to choose from at this year’s Fringe

T

he largest arts festival in England is back for another three week celebration of music, literature, theatre, comedy, cabaret, clubbing, film, art, dance and much else besides. Music has always been a big element of the fringe, with anything and everything on offer and over 100 events to choose from. Fancy some early music? Check out After Our Fashion (12 May, Friends Meeting House), a concert that features lute, mandolin, and viols. Music Of Our Time (MOOT) is a non-profit group for the public benefit promoting contemporary music, arts, education, and during May they are presenting a number of mainly classical concerts and workshops around Brighton (www.themusiciansbody.co.uk). St. Michael’s Church is also host to a number of classical concerts, some at lunchtimes, other in the evening. World music? As always the Fringe is host to number of high class world music events including Africa Unite 2012 (18 May, Komedia), Balkan Beat Box (18 May, Concorde 2), Quinto (27 May, Old Bank), Terry Seabrooks’s Cubana Bop (23 May, The Brunswick), fado singer Claudia Aurora (26 May, Komedia), or the Brighton-based afro-beat flavours of Kalakuta Millionaires (11 May, The Brunswick). Jazz and blues are also genres that gets a special airing in may, with all sorts of flavours and styles including Boogie Woogie Troop (25 May, Brunswick), jazz singer Edana Minghella (13 May, The Brunswick), and Milestones (14 may, The Brunswick), a silent movie classic screened and accompanied by a new jazz score performed by the superb musicians that make up Milestones. Old favourites of the fringe return year-on-year, and so there’s another opportunity to see the amazing tap-dancing singer Movin’ Melvin Brown (13 May, Komedia), The Brighton Beach Boys performing Pet Sound vs Sgt Pepper (11 May, St. George’s Church) and the 20-piece Ska Kestra (19 May, Concorde 2). What the fringe is also good at is introducing some unique, sometimes odd, style and sounds to people.

EVENTS: BRIGHTON & HOVE CHILDREN'S FESTIVAL Fun for all the family through the theme of bravery

B

righton & Hove Children’s Festival returns with exciting family events during the Easter holidays, meaning there’s no excuse for children to be bored. This year the festival is challenging families to take part in a series of performances and workshops all inspired by the theme of bravery and courage. From Travels With Grandad at the Brighton Dome, where eccentric traveller Grandad tells tales of courageous deeds and valiant adventures, to a ‘Twilight Walk’ in Queens Park with artist Mim King, who questions how our senses adapt when the light starts to fade. There’s plenty happening at Komedia such as You’ll Like This Film Because You’re In It, a filmmaking event inspired by cinematic virtuoso Michel Gondry. Families are given all the equipment to write, direct and star in their own short film about bravery. ‘Scary Monsters’ invites you to join a clay workshop and create brave sculptures of the things that scare you the most and what you need to overcome those fears. ‘Dancing In Darkness’ is an experimental dance class which takes place in gradually dimming light and culminates in a disco in the darkness. Whilst ‘Great Expectations’ at the Jubilee Library is a chance for expectant mothers, fathers and siblings to creatively express and share their thoughts about their uniquely brave adventure. Over half the festivals events are free of charge including ‘Break the Spell’ on Friday 13 April, the unluckiest day of all, where families can challenge their bad luck superstitions by walking under ladders, putting up umbrellas and making single magpies. The Brighton & Hove Children's Festival, Komedia, Brighton Dome, Jubilee Square and The Basement, Monday 9–Saturday 14 April.

FILM: MIRROR MIRROR (PG) Dir: Tarsem Singh There’s this lady, right? Pretty but getting on. Not hugely old or anything but those crows feet are starting to show. And she’s got this stunning step-daughter – stop us if you’ve heard this before. Actually, that’s the pre-amble. Julia Roberts’ evil queen is in full control of the kingdom and living large, but step-daughter and rightful heir Snow White (Lily Collins) and her short of stature pals are not going to take it lying down.

FILM: TITANIC 3D (12A) Director: James Cameron

T

his may seem familiar – well, it was familiar ground when it first came out in 1997 – but sometimes it’s good to return to a modern classic of the big screen splashed all across the massive screens of today. Even more so when it’s been super hyped up and added booster bells and whistles in the form of being made 3D. Imagine that sketch coming off the screen, never mind that boat and that iceberg. It’s also the 100th anniversary of the actual ship setting sail, reminding us that behind all the pomp and effects this was a real event that happened claiming thousands of lives. Which is why there’s more on the TV about it too, in the form of new dramatisations and Len Goodman investigating the dockyards. This story of the ill-fated ship all those moons ago, in case you didn’t already know, tells of young Jack and Rose (Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet), setting sail with new lives awaiting them when they reach America with a spirit of adventure, rebellion and a hint of danger. Rose is posh, Jack isn’t. Rose is betrothed to an evil bounder (Billy Zane), Jack isn’t. And they both seem to have an enjoyment of Celine Dion classics. Funny that. Released Friday 6 April. Showing at Odeon and Cineworld. Also see page 18 for our full James Cameron interview

STARS | TV

STARS With Val Aviv

HARIES {Mar 21–Apr 20}

Important relationships come into the spotlight with the full moon in your opposite sign of Libra, giving you opportunity to resolve issues and a chance to re-address the balance where needed. Exciting social situations bring a strong sense of love and enjoyment to you.

HTAURUS {Apr 21–May 21}

You are currently able to attract a lot of what you really want. Your extravagant ruler may make you more susceptible to splashing out on the finer things in life such as clothes, fine dining or pampering spa breaks. Financial negotiations are blessed with good fortune.

HGEMINI {May 22–June 21}

You are at your most amiable while Venus transits your sign. Make the most of this influence by getting together with people whom it is important you impress. This congeniality radiates through your body having a positive effect on your looks too.

HCANCER {June 22–July 22}

The Full Moon insists that you take a conscious step backwards despite your high profile demands and turn your attention inwards, watch what’s happening and pay attention to what your feelings are telling you about you.

HLEO {July 23–Aug 22}

Taking up a new course of study now will undoubtedly expand your horizons, pay attention to the details, as it will be easy to get carried away with flights of fancy. Your imagination could also take you to dark places – seek the light and truth.

HVIRGO {Aug 23–Sep 22}

If you have been keeping something bottled up then things will have to change. You’re able to remain detached when dealing with other people’s feelings which puts you in a good position to sort things out. Joint decisions are starred for success.

HLIBRA {Sep 23–Oct 22}

You will get great satisfaction from challenging conventions you previously believed, especially conventions surrounding beauty. The scope for what you may find beautiful could indeed be broader than you think, opening up your world tenfold.

HSCORPIO {Oct 23–Nov 21}

Being thoroughly duty bound, it may be a while before you’re able to get back to the kind of work you’re excited about. Use this time to refine your techniques and bring order. It’s no fun but your efforts will make life flow easier in the long run.

HSAGITTARIUS {Nov 22–Dec 20}

The energy that is burning inside of you can only be a hindrance if left unmoved or without purpose to cause havoc. Go for gold this week as you’re able to tap into a huge resource; use this creatively and you could turn a corner in some profound way!

HCAPRICORN {Dec 21–Jan 19}

You may be in demand and find yourself at the centre of the action with no place to hide or turn. That which is familiar and personal will mean the most as your focus turns inward; you can shine brightest in the company of those closest to you.

HAQUARIUS {Jan 20–Feb 19}

The pace of everyday events is picking up and becoming not only less predictable, but as a consequence; fundamentally more exciting! Things exist in your consciousness now that you were previously unaware of – this is a time of immeasurable growth.

HPISCES {Feb 20–Mar 20}

Avoid getting too worked up or stressed out by partnerships which don’t appear to be going in the direction you would like. There is a distinct matter of the unreal at play, and this lack of clarity can be debilitating to your energy reserve if you don’t take regular rests.

tuesday 3 Horizon: The Hunt For AI BBC2, 9pm Ever since Fritz Lang made a metal robot lady back in 1927 (and probably before) we’ve been fascinated and terrified of the idea of machines with minds of thier own. But how real is the prospect? Marcus Du Sautoy investigates the current cutting edge of Artificial Intelligence (AI), asking lots of questions for us.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Five, 9pm Still can’t get past Ted Danson in a favourite Letters (new genre – crime shows whose names are made up of initials) programme. We keep expecting him to shout ‘Norm!’. Anyway, an ex-mayor is shot at the official opening of a museum dedicated to the mafia and the gang are on the case.

Mark Lawson Talks To Mark Gatiss BBC4, 10.50pm Mark Lawson has a chat with the man who has become something of a BBC phenomenon, writing episodes of Doctor Who, creating and writing Sherlock, presenting a TV series on horror and generally popping up on anything truly quite wonderful. From childhood to regrets and more.

wednesday 4 Our Food BBC2, 8pm Encouraging us all to eat what is seasonal and fresh and grown within our own country rather than flown more miles than your beach towel will be this summer, Giles Coren travels around Britain to discover how the landscape, history and climate has shaped our food production. Norfolk crab, turkey and turnips feature.

The Apprentice BBC1, 9pm After last week’s dressing down and the week before’s poor show it’s a surprise Lord Sugar has any faith in these ‘brightest and sharpest of Britain’ at all. Or maybe it’s the combo. Mixing up the teams a bit should shake them into shape as they compete to come up with a new condiment. Hopefully.

Really quite violent, anti-social and leaving the victims unsure and in some cases permanently damaged, this is a lesson in consequences. The former mugger is now a youth worker, which offers hope.

friday 6 Twenty Twelve BBC2, 10pm It’s the second half of last week’s cliffhanger in this sharp comedy regarding the organisation behind the Olympic Games. The Algerians have issued a deadline of midnight for a solution to their demand for a Shared Belief Centre that faces Mecca. And the French threaten to pull out of the Games if there’s a mosque. Nice.

Castle Five, 10pm Funny how ‘punk’ bands in TV series never look quite as aggressive as the ones from Vivienne Westwood’s heyday. A bit of rainbow in your hair does not equal ‘punk’. Anyway, there’s a dead singer from a punk band, whose body has been arranged in the same style as her music video. Castle’s on the case.

Carry On Evening ITV3, 7.05pm onwards “Infamy! Infamy! They’ve all got it in for me!” And other such classic gems are likely to crop up in this Good Friday evening of Carry On... shenanigans. Kicking off with Carry On Camping, with Babs Windsor and Sid James, then Carry On Follow That Camel, and finally – pulling up the rear, fnar – That’s Carry On. Corker.

saturday 7 Keith Lemon’s LemonAid ITV1, 6.15pm Not satisfied with conquering ITV2 with Celebrity Juice, the construct that is Keith Lemon has now set his anarchic glinty eye on Saturday early evening prime time on ITV1. Expect mischief, celebrities, a twisted sense of altruism and a jumpy sense of danger for all who surround the mega star in the making.

Britain’s Got Talent ITV1, 8pm Are you watching for the hope of a glimpse of the next big thing, or maybe for some car-crash auditions, or even to enjoy Simon Cowell’s squirming under the attentions of David Walliams? Why not all three? With fellow judges Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon, these four sort the wheat from the chaff of talent.

Napoleon Dynamite E4, 12.05pm Seriously, a cartoon of the fabulous indie underdog comedy written by the chaps that wrote the film and starring the very chaps and chap-esses that were in the film, from Napoleon down to Grandma. Managing to maintain its indie credentials and make the most of its new animated format. Fab stuff.
