The Vote episode 4 Brighton and Hove will soon have its own terrestrial TV channel which you’ll be able to watch on your TV in your living room and on your laptop or on your mobile. That’s modern democracy. And of course localism, especially news and democracy and political debate will be a big part of Brighton’s new channel. Question Time on BBC 1 has proved that political TV need not be boring and we believe The Vote Show on thelatest.tv amplifies this. And how could The Vote be boring? New leader of Brighton and Hove Council, The Green Party’s Cllr Jason Kitcat has been having a well publicised Twitter feud with Labour’s Chief Whip in The House Of Lords Lord Steve Bassam. For the first time they debate in person and it’s riveting TV. As if that’s not enough they are joined by one of the greatest debaters in The Conservative Party Cllr Mary Mears and I don’t just mean in Brighton. Bill Randall talks about his year in office as first Green council leader while The Treason Show’s Mark Brailsford looks back at the year that was for The Greens. Frank le Duc does the Dimbleby bit and I know I’m biased but I’m hooked! – Bill Smith, MD, Latest TV If you want to be part of Brighton’s TV channel come to our open democratic meetings at Latest MusicBar every Monday at 5.30pm.

latest brighton & hove news In brief ■ TWO BRIGHTON STREETS GIVEN BOOST WITH £130K INJECTION OF CASH Improvements are promised for two Brighton streets – London Road and Preston Street. A joint bid by the London Road Local Action Team, traders, City College, the Chamber of Commerce, the Federation of Small Businesses and the council has been rewarded with £83,000. The road is to become a Portas Pilot – named after retail guru Mary Portas – and was one of just 15 to be chosen for regeneration funding out of more than 400 applications. The London Road bid’s organisers said that the money would help tackle issues including empty shops, low wages and antisocial behaviour. Among the early ideas for London Road are finding creative ways to fill empty shops such as an indoor market for new entrepreneurs and students to test their business plans and products. A subsidised security radio scheme could link shops to help them tackle shoplifting and anti-social behaviour. And training for retail staff could be made available, covering window dressing, shop displays or negotiating rent reviews. In Preston Street work started last week to try to improve the road’s appearance and pedestrian links. The changes to the southern and northern ends of the street have been costed at £50,000. The council said that street lighting would be improved and the area would be decluttered and made more accessible for pedestrians.

■ VETS SPONSOR YOUNG FOOTBALLERS FOR THE FORTHCOMING SEASON Grove Lodge Vets are the new shirt sponsors for Shoreham FC Under-8s. The Sussex-based veterinary group said that most children love animals or even look after their own pets so it made sense for the vets to want to support their local youngsters. The independent veterinary group said that the deal for the coming season was to sponsor the Mussels’ Under-8s, who plays home games at the 120-year-old club’s Middle Road ground. It is the first time they have had a shirt sponsor. Marc Abraham, a vet at Grove Lodge’s Southwick clinic and author of the children’s book Pets in Need, said: “We’re incredibly proud to be supporting our local community and sponsoring Shoreham FC’s Under-8s. Most local families own a pet, and educating pet owners is essential, so it’s an obvious and fun partnership.”

The children showed the TV presenter around the school grounds where he saw their vegetable patch.

oppy fields and crowded beaches heralded the return of fine weather at long last but behind the sunny smiles were some sinister goings on. A 28-year-old Londoner was arrested on suspicion of murder after a body was found in a flat in Kemp Town, Brighton.

The university is creating a digital replica of the first statue using groundbreaking 3D technology and a gallery of photos to record the design for posterity. Members of the public will be able to see first-hand how the university digitally records artefacts at a major exhibition taking place from this week until Saturday 25 August. The remains of the

Seven months ago local sculptor Peter Webster was approached by businessmen who were keen to see a replacement for the statue of Steve that used to stand in Preston Park. They received school visits from Steve during the height of his career, and like many others, were inspired to go on and achieve their ambitions – sporting or otherwise. Peter was the creator of the original statue, and though many of his materials and moulds are now lost, he based the new plans on

Staying with development, Brighton & Hove Albion have brought forward their final expansion plan for the American Express Community Stadium and they could end up with 30,000 fans watching games by the close of the new season.

Steve’s achievements are a part of a rich sporting history here in the city. We also host an enormously successful football team and cricket club of course. It’s not always easy, but as a council we continue to work on improving the quality of sports and physical activities in the city, despite financial difficulties. Successful events like the recent fortnight long TAKEPART Festival, a city-wide annual sports celebration, show how willing people are to get involved and try new things.

The makings of a recovery As the government shuts 27 Remploy factories Frank le Duc finds a contrasting picture in Hove

L

ess than three weeks from now 27 Remploy factories employing disabled people will start closing around the country with the loss of 1,400 jobs. Last Thursday many of those staff took part in a second strike. They are unhappy about the loss of their jobs and the terms of their redundancy. The government said that the factories were loss-making and unaffordable at a time of austerity. Nine other factories look like being sold and have viable business plans. No-one is pretending that it will be easy for those disabled staff to find new jobs. There are concerns that most will end up on benefits paid by a different arm of the state. There is a factory in Hove which, like Remploy, employs disabled people and had the threat of closure hanging over it for a long time. The old Castleham factory has been providing supported employment for nearly 25 years at the Knoll Business Centre in Old Shoreham Road. It too made a loss, meaning that the council had to subsidise it or close it down. Last September the council appointed Jeff White as business development manager. He was given a tough brief: find a way forward within three months or close the operation. Mr White, 58,

has worked in business development for Cable and Wireless and other big corporations. He has run his own business and worked as a coach and mentor. But this small factory close to Hove Cemetery has become something of a mission. He said: “I was given three months to come up with a viable business plan. We put together three business plans – and eventually one got accepted. There was a lot of older equipment and a lot of people not doing any work. The bottom line was if we want this to work then we’re going to have to invest. It’s expensive, we’ve had to make big investments in equipment that’s going to make us money. That’s one of the things that’s helped change things.

ABLE AND WILLING “Since April we’ve been trading as ableandwilling. Our turnover has to increase and so does our profit. Before, all we had to do was keep people busy. Over the past three months we’ve been on track but our targets are really aggressive. Our skills are embroidery, a whole series of printing, and assembly and packaging. We’ve won work – in the past three months we’ve done a whole

series of embroidery work for about 30 cricket clubs. We won that work because we can turn it around at the price and the speed they want. “We’re a supported employer. We have a target of employing people with disabilities so they make up 50 per cent of our people. On the shop floor it’s 100 per cent. With us included [the senior management] it’s 90 per cent – that’s amazing. Working in this crappy little cabin on the Knoll Estate is the best job I’ve ever had. I work with such fantastic people. We’ve tried very hard to make it a fun place to work. In these times of difficulty for Remploy, we’re a great model of how you can do things.” Mr White said that Able and Willing had enjoyed support from the departing council chief executive John Barradell. He said that Mr Barradell had been challenging and tough about producing a rigorous business case but a source of practical help and advice. And he said that former council leader Bill Randall, currently serving as mayor, had also been another great supporter. Councillor Randall was great at spreading the word. He said that both had lent their networking skills as the factory went in search of new orders. And new leader Jason Kitcat, formerly in charge of the council finances, had proved supportive too. Amid a roll call of local backers were the likes of Albion in the Community, Legal and General, the Martlets Hospice and Mears, the council’s housing contractor. After a visit nearly three years ago, Mary Mears, a former leader of the council, said: “I was extremely impressed with the work that they are doing and am delighted that the council is able to support the enterprise. Helping those with disabilities into employment is one of those unsung council functions which rarely hits the headlines but which provides an incredibly valuable service for some of our most vulnerable residents.”

Political backing is one thing. But given the financial climate Mr White and his team are under pressure to provide not just supported employment but to do so profitably. So as well as new equipment, Mr White has brought in new work practices and trained staff in new skills. He has also brought three new staff on board – the first in ten years. They are on six-month contracts and will be using their time to develop their skills and build their confidence as they look for work elsewhere in the local economy. Changing work practices are the sort of issue that often spurs union involvement – and the GMB locally has taken an interest in the factory. Its conclusion can be a source of some satisfaction.

A SHINING EXAMPLE Lynne Henshaw, the GMB representative, said: “The changes have been absolutely tremendous. There are 22 disabled people, they’re a lovely set of people. The threat of closing down had been hanging over them for a very long time. It’s a shining example of what can be achieved if there’s innovation and commitment from all sides. It’s a contrast to the situation at Remploy. The tragic consequences of making 1,400 disabled people unemployed makes my heart sink. I’m happy Able and Willing is becoming a viable business and a long-term prospect.” A familiar face around the factory is Lyn Lynch, from the council’s Supported Employment Team, which helps people with disabilities and longterm health needs. She said: “We support people to learn their jobs and stay in work and we help companies with disability issues. A lot of the adjustments can be so small but people don’t actually think of them. One man had a hearing impairment and his desk faced the wall. People always had to come up and tap him to get his attention. We got the desk turned round. We had a lady who worked as an admin assistant. She had limited use of one arm so we got her keyboard adjusted.”

She said that the hospital, local supermarkets and care homes such as Birch Grove in Stanford Avenue, Brighton, had been good at recruiting the people she helped. She and her colleagues run courses to help people find jobs in the care sector and as cleaners. Looking back over the past few months at Able and Willing, she said: “Change is very difficult for anyone but more so for our folk. Everyone’s stepped up to the mark.” Mr White said that the changes had seen

found out about my disability. I’ve got ankylosing spondylitis. It’s a condition where your spine fuses. I try not to let it affect me and I never use it as an excuse.” While he was on the dole he was asked to go for training in Portsmouth which, despite the commute, he did. He said: “The travelling was a bit awkward at times. I think they wanted me to prove I wanted to work. After that, they offered me a chance to come to Castleham. I had a trial

“‘It’s a shining example of what can be achieved if there’s innovation and commitment from all sides’” companies like Imex, the conference organiser based in Hove, place orders. He was adamant that his staff must be able to compete on price and quality. If there was any initial hesitancy it disappeared when the first job was delivered on time and in budget. “They couldn’t have been happier,” he said of his client. And as he beamed about the new machinery and a display case brimming with samples of signs, mugs, t-shirts and other printed and embroidered goods produced by his staff, he added: “This extraordinary place gives them the dignity of work.”

JOHN’S STORY John Dean, 55, from Moulsecoomb, is a team leader at ableandwilling. He worked as a chandelier maker when he left school. When the business struggled, he was one of those who lost his job. He said: “I fitted chandeliers before I

period, it’s lasted 28 years. I started off as a humble assembler on the shop floor. I became a charge hand – and now it’s called team leader.” Mr Dean, who is also a member of the council’s Disabled Workers Forum, said: “If I can, then I’ll work. Having a disability does restrict the type of work you can do. You have to accept you’ve got a disability and then just get on with life. They’re a good bunch here and they do a good day’s work. “We were almost going out of business but the future looks bright now. I’ve probably gone through all the emotions you can think of. But now it’s a breath of fresh air.” ■ Able & Willing managers Steve Halliday and Jeff White

In short the solar salesmen and women will tell you that PV panels remain a good investment.

MARTLETS HOSPICE

MARTLETS MEN The girls have walked for the Martlets Hospice, so on Sunday 14 October it’s up to the men and boys!

T

he Martlets Noon Walk is one of those rare events in Brighton and Hove – it’s a men-only, 13 mile sponsored walk and a chance for men and boys (aged 12+) from all parts of the city to walk together to support the work of their local hospice. It’s a fundraising walk just for men to remember friends, loved ones or colleagues who have been affected by cancer or terminal illness. “Many charity fundraising events in Brighton are exclusively for women, but there are very few just for men. Over 800 women from the city turned out on 15 June this year to walk for the Martlets Hospice. This year’s Noon Walk will be one of the Hospice’s key fundraising events in our 15th anniversary year. We hope men and boys from across the city will be inspired to take part on 14 October,” says Roger French, Chair of Trustees at the Martlets. It is a great day out walking with family, mates and, if you want, well behaved dogs too. Think of the

You can create some rivalry in raising money for the Martlets by joining as a business, club or social team. Then you can be in with a chance of winning the Noon Walk Cup – kindly sponsored by Wilson Sandford – awarded to the team that raises the most money. There are also prizes for the best fancy dress participants – the more outrageous the costumes the better! The Martlets Hospice cares for people affected by terminal illness living in and around Brighton and Hove. All their services are provided free of charge. Since opening in 1997, staff and volunteers have cared for and supported over 22,000 local people. As less than a third of their funding comes from the NHS, support from everybody in the community is absolutely vital. The Hospice provides end of life care services to adults with terminal illness including cancer. Facilities and services include an 18bed In-Patient Unit and Hospice-atHome Services. Practical and emotional support is also offered to the families and carers of patients including helping them through bereavement. The Hospice is also developing additional services for outpatients and those living at home needing end of life care and support.

Noon Walk as healthy exercise but having the real purpose of helping local people get the compassionate and high quality end of life care they deserve! The walk will start at noon at the Probiz County Cricket Ground in Hove. Walkers will make their way along the seafront and cliff tops to Saltdean Lido for a refreshment pit stop, before returning to the cricket ground where well-earned pints and a medal will be waiting! There are plenty of pubs on the route in case you need to top up fuel tanks. There will also be special medals and treats for the dogs as well.

“The Martlets will always have a special place in my heart. Thanks for all the chats, your honesty, your total compassion, your ability to calm me and all my family, and your desire to ease suffering”

The Martlets’ main aim is to maximise the quality of life for patients and they strive to support patient choice, dignity and independence. They aim to help people when they need it most. Now in its fourth year, the Noon Walk has raised nearly £60,000. As in the past, the money from this year’s walk will be used directly to fund services. Why not try to raise money online with Just Giving? The Hospice will help you do this and you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to collect sponsorship and how it can help with your fundraising. Tell Martlets and your friends about your Noon Walk involvement on Facebook and Twitter. The Martlets Noon Walk takes place Sunday 14 October 2012.

12 SNAP SHOTS

Snap Shots Photographer Diana Frangi captures the faces and places that define our city. This week: Carla Ballantine, of local fashion label Sugar Jones

You just can’t help but be inspired by Brighton and its people. The range of individual styles on show in the city rivals anywhere in the world and is perfect for anyone who appreciates beauty and good design. I am a great believer in manufacturing locally, so it is a bonus to have so many talented suppliers here. Plus I get to indulge my other passion of running by the sea.

Carla Ballantine is the driving force behind the Sugar Jones fashion label, which is the latest in a long line of talented Brighton based designers. Carla started her label in Cornwall, but moved to Brighton after customers insisted her work was too cutting edge to hide away in the sleepy south west. Sugar Jones’ handmade bespoke pieces range from vintage inspired recycled jewellery to genuine Cuban cigar box handbags. She also has a commercial line inspired by a background of graphic design. This winning combination has seen Sugar Jones nominated in the Great Exhibition 2012 as a Best in Britain Start Up. www.sugarjones.co.uk

The Bengal moggy from Brighton has just completed her first photoshoot with the huge fashion magazine, prowling and purring for legendary photographer Graeme Montgomery. The shoot, for a glamorous jewellery spread, needed Millie’s purrrfect paws alongside a few (not quite so important) models. Millie has shown herself to be a natural in front of the camera, being able to, “purr, yawn and strike poses on demand,” according to her owner Jo-Rosie Haffenden. But Millie isn’t the only famous furry face in their household – with their pitbull terrier set to become a star of silver screen too. The canine thespian was working on a film when his owner was approached to use Millie’s charms. Since then the model cat has signed to an agent and been upgraded to a brand new bag.

Hove’s Boundary Passage follows a natural fault line, and has been the scene of seventy-two earthquakes since 1839. One, in 1994, measuring 8.4 on the Richter scale, swallowed Bankers fish and chip shop whole and then spat it out again complaining there wasn't enough salt and vinegar.

Since church attendances are down across the country, I suggest cutting costly Vicars and replacing them with tape recorders that emit, when a button is depressed, appropriate vicar-like phrases, such as “Very good to see you in church this week,” and “We'd like to thank you all for your donations to the steeple fund.” If he wasn't dead they could have got Derek Nimmo to do it, but, in his absence, Tom Hollander would make an adequate replacement.

L7 INTERVIEW well they call it Evensong, and it’s a full choir and a mighty organ. I go for the entertainment really but I do try to get a message to head office between the singing and the organ playing, I do decide to have a word with the boss.”

DODD DO RIGHT Ken Dodd is a legend of comedy and variety performance – from his own TV shows to live performances that have been known to keep the laughter going for five hours! Victoria Nangle talks to the man How’s your day been? “Well, just like myself, wet and windy. Dry and uneventful would be more like it.” Have you been out in the garden? “Who me? Goodness gracious, the fresh air would make me dizzy. I should have square eyeballs because I watch television a lot. Documentaries about how the cavemen lived in Knotty Ash. It’s where it all started. He was the very first comedian, a man called Stone Age Stanley; he told the first joke in history. What do you call a short-sighted dinosaur? Do-you-think-he-saw-us. And he had a short-sighted dog, Do-you-think-hesaw-us Rex. How long have you been a journalist, all day?” All day and a bit of yesterday as well. How do you remember it all, because you do have legendary long routines? “People ask me that and I gave a smart alec answer a few months ago. Someone said ‘how do you remember all those jokes?’ and I said ‘you see madam, a joke is like an old friend. It’s been very good to me over the years and you never forget old friends’. I’m going to put that on a calendar. Knotty Ash philosophy. If things look black, put them in the laundry. Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today, because if you do it today and you like it, you can do it again tomorrow.”

Since you seem to celebrate happiness so well, what do you think of contemporary comedians who come at it from a grumpy angle? “People often ask me what I think of contemporary comedians, other journalists have said ‘Ken, you’ve been going for over 50 years, you’ve travelled the length and breadth of the UK, how has humour changed over the last 50 years?’ Humour hasn’t changed. People still laugh today at the same things. The battle between men and women, finding out who’s boss. Money, riches and power, the same thing. There’s transport, food, drink. Exactly the same things. No, humour hasn’t changed; audiences have changed. Audiences’ expectations and what they want has changed. No entertainer or comedian goes on stage with the intention of dying, they go on with the intention of success and to do well. Over the last 50 years, we enjoy being able to say whatever we like but with that comes a responsibility. If you want to entertain people, you don’t want to go and shout and swear at them, do you?” Some performers these days are saying they miss restrictions because it was more fun to play around with words when they had restrictions... “Anybody can do shock comedy, shock comedy is easy. I could do that and you wouldn’t need a perm for three years. There are wonderful dirty jokes but I won’t do it. I want to follow in the footsteps of Arthur Askey, Ted Ray and people like that. They’re my heroes, they’re my family.” Would you write for other people? “No I’m not clever enough, I’m a performer. I’m just a live performer, I work with a live audience and I love working with them, teasing them and flirting with them. When you go on stage, you have 30 seconds to ingratiate yourself, to get yourself across. Posh actors call it ‘establishing a rapport’, ‘that’s what you do, dear boy’. I call it ‘building a bridge’. You’ve got 30 seconds to build a bridge and make them safe.”

I’m sure they appreciate it... “Yes, well, I don’t know. The main reason then is ‘Mr Dodd, are you looking forward to coming to Worthing?’ Yes, I’m definitely looking forward to coming to Worthing. Could you arrange that the seaweed won’t be anywhere. It lies on the shore and it stinks I take it you still enjoy to high heaven. You have never performing as much as you experienced such a pong in your “Anybody can do ever did... life. So if you can go to Worthing “A lot of people say you walk shock comedy, shock and make sure the seaweed on stage and rattle off a load isn’t in.

s I write, the Olympic torch prepares to go to a mythical place where no Olympic flame has gone before: Walford’s Albert Square. The long-running soap opera will celebrate the fiery stick’s appearance with a live show depicting made-up character Billy Mitchell carrying the real flame through the very unreal London borough. I can only hope sticking with its history of gritty, true to life storylines that in future episodes Billy finds unwanted notoriety for trying to sell his replica torch on an online auction site for profit. The build up to the Games seems to have got a bit of a bad rap so far. Leaked details of Danny Boyle’s opening ceremony sound comical (how many sheep?). Thanks to the well publicised security staffing shortages by a Sussex-based company, ‘G’ and ‘4’ and ‘S’ in that order have become a funny punchline. And I’ve even heard some back-benchers describing such issues as ‘inevitable.’ Now I’m all for a bit of classic British selfdeprecation, but as you read this, with the Games actually taking place in the capital, I can’t help thinking as a nation it feels a bit

like we’ve had our fill of all that now. Instead of ironic comments, now feels like the time for the other Great British tradition: over enthusiasm for the national team. Now feels like the time for discussing with bus drivers whether you think Tom Daley will come away with a gold in the diving. Time

instead to post ‘Wel jel’ under friends’ Facebook photos of their hard sought-after athletics tickets. I’ve been avidly reading up on British hopefuls like young brothers Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, two triathlon competitors; learning important facts, like where the table tennis will be held (ExCel Arena), just how big Chris Hoy’s thighs are (width of a small horse) and what exactly is Greco Roman Wrestling (still not 100 per cent sure). So much to know! But what do we really care about? Well, winners of course. Us Brits may love to back, and often be, the underdog, but when it comes to the all-time best nations for medals at the Olympics, we’re third! When it comes to the Games, we should get bronze! And third still equals a medal. The end of the Olympic-bashing attitude seemed to me to coincide with the tour through Brighton and Hove of the torch. It reached us on day 59 of its arduous journey, which saw it man handled by everyone from Will.I.Am to Jedward and nearly nicked by two children in Coventry. On a grey July Monday the flame travelled through Arundel, Worthing and Lancing to arrive in Hove. Considering it had chucked it down just before it arrived in the city limits, an estimated whopping 80,000 of us turned out to see it that Monday evening in Hove alone.

The next day 30,000 got up early to watch it leave town. On Monday night I watched the flame from Old Shoreham Road just outside Hove Park, and then followed it on my bike as it snaked through the city to the seafront and back up to Hove Cricket Ground. Following behind the procession of promotional buses, official buses for torchbearers, some people in grey tracksuits, the flame itself, and police and security, one thing struck me. Everyone was smiling! It was raining for what felt like the 40th day in a row, and it’s not like people did a handstand with the thing. It’s a torch, on fire, carried through the streets. But loads of people turned out to watch and take photos, people who had told me they didn’t give two figs, and everyone seemed really pleased to see the flame go past their house. It reminded me of the crowds that came out to cheer Brighton Marathon runners on back in April. All the people I spoke to about the Olympics seemed to feel that it’s here now, and quite frankly we hope it all goes pretty well, thanks very much. Here’s a picture of me with a torch. I think the gold suits me. Dan Gasser and Foxy Monday to Friday from 6am follow me on twitter

he Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital in Woodingdean offers a range of treatments for varicose veins. Mr Mike Brooks, lead vascular surgeon for the Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Trust, consults weekly at the Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital. He says that varicose veins are common. They normally appear as bulging lumps on the calves or thighs which initially present a cosmetic problem but with time may become increasingly problematic, causing pain, itching and occasionally ankle swelling. More severe but less common symptoms include dry scaly skin around the varicosities (varicose eczema), skin pigmentation, bleeding, “If they become scarring of the skin and the underlying fat (liposclerosis), and more prominent and more rarely still, break down of the skin and ulceration. more troublesome Varicose veins present more frequently in women and may be made it may be worth worse by pregnancy. They seem to run in families so you may inherit the discussing them tendency to get them. Standing for long periods and being overweight may with your GP” also increase your risk. Varicose veins tend to get worse with time but can appear at almost any age from teens onwards. Veins are supposed to carry blood back to the heart. The problem in the legs (during the day anyway) is that it's uphill all the way. The blood is pumped up the leg when the muscles in the calf and the thigh contract (when you walk or run), and there are small one way valves every few inches in the veins to prevent the blood flowing back down the leg when those muscles relax. Most of the blood gets out of the legs in large deep veins within the muscles in the calf and thigh, but a small proportion of the blood comes up through smaller superficial veins running just under the skin. There are two main superficial veins – the long saphenous vein on the inside of the calf and thigh, and the short saphenous vein on the back of the calf. It's failure of the valves in these superficial veins that causes varicose veins. Every time you stand up, the blood rushes down the vein though the damaged valves and into the vein branches in the leg making them bulge, and that causes the pain and damages the skin resulting in the eczema, pigmentation and ulceration.

Treating varicose veins Many people live in peace with their varicose veins and don't seek any treatment but if they become more prominent and more troublesome it may be worth discussing them with your GP. Treatments range from wearing support stockings, which squeeze on the veins reducing symptoms (but that’s not a cure), to injections of a chemical into the veins causing them to shrivel up (sclerotherapy), endovenous treatment which works by destroying the veins with heat using a laser or radiofrequency catheter, through to surgical removal of the veins which has the advantage of removal all the varicosities in one go but involves a general anaesthetic and sometimes considerable bruising which always disappears, but that may take a few months. The advantage of the endovenous treatments is that they can be done under local anaesthetic as an outpatient procedure with less discomfort and less bruising. However not all varicose veins are suitable for this sort of treatment. Therefore it's very important that everyone seeking treatment for their veins has a clinical examination and an ultrasound scan of their legs to see which is the best treatment for their varicosities. Sometimes a combination of treatments is appropriate and the options should always be discussed before embarking on treatment to ensure the best results. At the Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital in Woodingdean, there are specialists, including Mr Brooks and his colleagues Mr Karim El Sakka and Mr Matthew Button who are only too happy to consult and help with any varicose vein issues you may have.  Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital, Warren Road, Woodingdean, 01273 936948, www.nuffieldhealth.com/brighton, www.sussexvascular.com

Dear Jacquie Your queries about natural health answered by Jacquie Lane from the The College of Naturopathic Medicine Dear Jacquie I think I’m hypoglycaemic as my energy levels plummet and I get confused and weak if I haven’t eaten, my doctor just says eat healthily and cut down on sugar but is there anything else I should be doing? RP, Portslade Hypoglycaemia, also called low blood glucose or low blood sugar, occurs when blood glucose drops below normal levels. Hypoglycaemia can happen suddenly. It is usually mild and can be treated quickly and easily by eating or drinking a small amount of glucose-rich food. If left untreated, hypoglycaemia can get worse and cause confusion, clumsiness, or fainting. Severe hypoglycaemia can lead to seizures, coma, or worse. Assuming your GP has ruled out diabetes, keeping your blood sugar balanced is a matter of choosing the correct foods and eating at the right time. White foods such as sugar, cakes and biscuits will absorb into the

bloodstream very quickly and cause spikes and dips in your blood sugar levels. Examples of snack foods that, when combined assist with blood sugar balancing, are: oatcakes and hummus; apples and nuts; yoghurt and fruit; berries and seeds; rice cakes and cashew nut butter. Meals should be a combination of complex carbohydrates and protein, for example: sweet potato and salmon with vegetables; three bean chilli with brown rice or jacket potato. A complex carbohydrate is one that is not refined and therefore retains its fibre and nutrients.

Be careful with sweet fruit juice drinks or anything overly sweet on an empty stomach as this could cause a spike in your blood glucose levels and then a dramatic drop in levels. Some people can wait five hours between meals with no problems and others need a snack after two hours, this is a personal consideration and one size does not fit all when it comes to nutrition. Some nutrients help balance out our blood sugar levels and help our bodies extract nutrients from food such as chromium and vitamins B3 and B5. Excess exercise and skipping meals will impact on your blood sugar levels also so take precautions if you know you won’t be home for dinner or are doing an energetic exercise class. As always a nutritional therapist will help you put together a plan. See your health professional for advice.

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. Email Jacquie Lane: sunshinenutrition@hotmail.co.uk

Wave embraces a summer of sport & urges you to find a keep-fit activity you enjoy too

T

his summer has us going crazy for sport. We kicked a ball around after watching Euro 2012; ping pong resurged as the game to play when the ‘Ping Festival’ descended on our city; Wimbledon saw us digging out our old tennis racquet, and finally the Summer Athletics has us... well, trying out anything and everything. Here in Brighton and Hove we are lucky to be able to choose any sporting activity right on our doorstep. Head to the Downs for rambling, paragliding or horseriding; head to the beach for volleyball, kayaking, windsurfing or swimming; ride a bike or slip on your trainers and run... anywhere. It really is that easy to find a sport you enjoy and once you have fun, it will never feel like a laborious chore in your ‘keep fit’ quest. If sport conjures up schooltime memories you’d rather forget, then it’s time to invest in a new pair of trainers and revisit the wonderful world of physical activity. If you do exercise regularly but need a change, take inspiration from the Games and try something new such as a gymnastics or an ice-skating class. Think back to when you were small and the sports you always wanted to play. Netball, stool ball, hockey... these can be enjoyed in your adult life too. The wellbeing benefits will be huge: as well as staying in shape and reducing the risk of high blood pressure and a heart attack, sport lets you take time out from the stresses of everyday life. Joining a tennis club, cycling club, running club or similar is a great way to meet new friends. The social benefits aside, sport can be as competitive or as non competitive as you wish – but a little healthy competition never hurt anyone, especially if improved fitness is the result.

ven if you are not particularly interested in fine art you will not have escaped at least a glancing exposure to the work of Gainsborough and Constable. Not if any of your formative years were spent in the UK, that is. Right now you are probably conjuring up images of tranquil verdant landscapes, streams and hay wagons set against dramatic, potentially threatening skies. You step through the frame, exchange the hay wagons for bunkers and greens, replace the domestic beasts with golf carts and trolleys, add a modern clubhouse and a full rainbow, and shazam! You are standing on the tenth tee of the Gainsborough Course in beautiful Stoke by Nayland, Suffolk. Behind you are nine of the most pleasant parkland golf holes you have ever played, requiring accuracy off the tees and precise club selection. Before you, one of the most mouth watering holes you have ever seen. The fairway hugs a slender finger lake which points helpfully at the tiny green you are seeking. You must place an accurate tee shot in excess of 200 yards to the corner of the dogleg to have a reasonable chance of arriving in two on

Remember that there is a sport for you. It may take a while to find the one you love but is it out there. Start with running or swimming, forms of exercise accessible to everyone, young and old. Swimming may also spur you on to try other water based sports like wind surfing or scuba diving (both extremely fun!). View the open water like an adventure; we need to take advantage of the area we live in whether it’s out in the water or up in the hills. Team-based activities are great fun and buddying up will help keep you motivated and means you are less likely to skip a session. So if the Games has you inspired, slip on your gym shorts or wetsuit and get out there. The choice is yours and we guarantee you will find a sport you can enjoy. Wave has put together a guide to the best sports facilities right here in the city from Lagoon Watersports, Alive Fitness and Brighton Sports Co.

More of the same awaits ahead, which is no doubt why this course has regularly hosted prestigious international championships, such as the European Seniors Tour and The Challenge Tour.

For non-golfers there is a fabulous spa which is ideal for families on the odd rainy day. Families will also enjoy a number of local attractions and walks nearby. A recent addition to the resort is the selection of self catering luxury lodges overlooking the golf course and offering an alternative for groups and couples looking for a little more privacy.

ANDREW KAY’S FOOD & DRINK

Food & Drink Andrew Kay reports on the the leader board in the 2012 Brighton & Hove Foodie Awards

In it to win it V

oting is now well underway for the third Brighton and Hove Foodie Awards, a celebration of the best eating, and an award scheme that you, the public, really have a say in. You can log on, register and vote for your favourites in each category, and your votes really do count. If you have a favourite food shop, food pub, restaurant or café then get busy and vote for it. If it’s already on there you can add your vote and if it’s not then you can nominate it – it’s as simple as that. And don’t just vote yourself, rally support and get your friends and family to join in. If you run a business in any of the categories, have you made sure that you have been nominated? Have you asked your customers to vote for you? It’s not cheating; you have to be in it to win it so make sure that you’re in with a chance by being a nominated business. Summer is truly a fabulous time for all things foodie! July was the month when hot dogs, ice cream and even the humble baked bean were celebrated nationally. Wednesday 25 July saw the start of National Salad Week closely followed by British Food Fortnight from Friday 27 July. But will any of these events help the leaders in the Brighton & Hove Foodie Awards, and who is on the current leaderboard? Terre à Terre in East Street has held on to first place in the Best Restaurant category. Food for Friends in Prince Albert Street has regained second place and the Chilli Pickle is back on the leaderboard and into third place. Leading the way in the Best Food Pub category is The Ginger Pig in Hove Street, the Basketmakers in Cheltenham Place has dropped back to third place and The Foragers in Stirling Place continues to battle for the lead from the number two spot. Never has a competition been so fiercely fought between local rivals, with fourth and fifth places rapidly closing in. Will it all change in the last two months of voting?

There’s no change in the Best Café category; last year’s winners Lydea in Kensington Gardens remain in first place, Moksha Caffe in York Place is still there in second and Mange Tout in Trafalgar Street maintains third place. But voting numbers for other city favourites are on the increase and it could be a very different picture next month! For Best Food Shop, Infinity Food is in first place, Boho Gelato in Pool Valley is in second place and the Brighton Sausage Company in Gloucester Street holds onto third place.

War on Hunger During September and October, top Brighton restaurants will participate in the UK’s leading foodie appeal, Love Food Give Food, by inviting their customers to take action against child hunger simply by eating out. Supported by a multitude of culinary luminaries including Raymond Blanc, Giorgio Locatelli, Valentine Warner and Marcus Wareing, Love Food Give Food, unites food lovers who are turning their passion for food into action to help malnourished children and their families worldwide. Joining hundreds of restaurants across the nation, top Brighton restaurants will be supporting Love Food Give Food by giving customers the opportunity to add a small donation to their bill or offering certain dishes where a percentage of the cost goes to Action Against Hunger. In response to the ongoing food crisis in East Africa, the aid agency has launched one of their biggest humanitarian responses to date, implementing life-saving programmes in Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya and Djibouti. Customers will also have the fantastic chance to win 26 free

25

meals for two in top restaurants across the nation by collecting four stickers on their Love Food Give Food loyalty cards by eating out at participating restaurants between Saturday 1 September and Wednesday 31 October. Loyalty cards are available from participating restaurants and in the September edition of Delicious magazine. Food lovers and restaurants across the UK can also help raise funds by taking part in toptable and OpenTable’s bespoke Love Food Give Food festival created as part of Action Against Hunger’s Love Food Give Food appeal. Emma Cullingford, campaign manager at Action Against Hunger, said: “In 2010, food lovers, chefs, restaurants and cafés have helped raise over £170,000 in aid of our life-saving programmes worldwide. With the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the Horn of Africa, we’re encouraging all food lovers across the nation to help make this year’s Love Food Give Food appeal the biggest ever and raise crucial funds for our worldwide programmes.” To get involved, simply enjoy a great meal at participating restaurants and as a result help families feed their children in some of the world’s poorest countries.

“This is the third year we have run the Foodies and this year is quite unlike any other,” said Paula Seager, managing director of Natural PR, the Awards’ organisers. “It seems like the same names keep appearing but in fact fourth, fifth and even sixth places in each categories are so close to edging their way on to the leaderboard and able to spring some last minute surprises. “With two months to go until voting closes, our leaders should not yet feel safe and those taking part who have not yet seen their name on the leaderboard should know that the outcome is far from resolved. So if your favourite has not yet appeared, get involved and have your say, it could make a very big difference to next month’s positions.” I will be joining the lovely Andrea Fox on stage to host the awards ceremony which will take place in the Brighton and Hove Food & Drink Festival this September. This will be the third time that we have cohosted this prestigious event and it always proves to be a fun night out, with Andrea and I vying for the brightest outfit and fighting our way to get a crumb of food after the finalists have laid waste to what is always a sumptuous buffet of foods representing all of their businesses.

RUPTURE

VOLCANO, Theatre Royal Brighton, 23 July 2012, ✪✪✪✪✪

T

here are times when it becomes completely apparent why a play by a famous author is seldom, if ever, performed. Volcano is one such play. Noel Coward’s Brief Encounter remains one of his best works, moving, sensitive and at the time controversial. Volcano, in comparison, was clumsy and cliched and despite the best efforts of most of the company, failed to engage on any level. Jenny Seagrove seemed uncomfortable in the role from the start. Maybe the effect she was looking for was reserve or restraint – but it came across as wooden and unemotional which is a shame, because the entire purpose of the play hangs around her character. Instead her flat performance, the lack of emotional engagement and the obsessive attention to minor business like sweeping up a broken glass, simply distracted from the already thin plot. Volcano is all a case of who’s sleeping with who, a sexual whodunnit in which the twist comes as no surprise. It may have been shocking back then, but now in our metrosexual world few would be shocked or care. The rest of the company managed to create a sense of time, Robin Sebastian was excellent and Finty Williams too. Jason Durr is certainly attractive as the sexual mercenary, but with a plot as lame as this there is little for him to go with it. The excellent set and lighting are worth a mention but as for the whole, the clunky parallel of the erupting volcano and the exploding intrigues of infidelity can be summed up by Ms Seagrove who, the night after the disaster, walks around the set with a cloth dusting the rattan furniture. Andrew Kay

upbeat voice; she’s always at pains to argue that while the words might be tragic, she herself isn’t, and in doing so manages not only to deflect any sense of self pity, but also comes across as the sort of person you’d want to meet in the bar holding court. An hour of cheerful misery. Caroline of Brunswick, 23 July 2012, ✪✪✪✪✪ Andrew Allen

ROISIN CONATY – LIFE HUNTER

PEARL & THE BEARD

SOMNAMBULES & THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS

Despite the summer heat, the Nightingale Theatre came to life with a dynamic performance that blew everyone away. The concept of fusing dance and physical theatre is not an easy task, but Tanya Khabarova and Yael Karavan made it look easy as they portrayed the seven deadly sins in the form of a twisted game show with splendid lighting and music complementing the show. A little more daring moves and a couple more lighting effects would have made it perfect though. This Edinburgh preview was certainly worth seeing.

PINE HILL PAINTS

Opener Serious Sam Barrett augmented his folk blues set with fellow support act, and Texan legend, Tim Kerr on harmonica and headliner Jamie on fiddle. This ensemble setup continued when Alabama’s Haints invited Tim and other friends to join them throughout their set of punkedup Americana. ‘Cool Clear Water’ was one of a number of Gene Vincent style rockabilly numbers while washtub bass player Matt was a wolverine lounge lizard on ‘Walkin’ Talkin’ Dead Man’. Old gospel numbers sat comfortably with TexMex death songs and everyone, including the merch minders, congregated in the crowd for a rousing acoustic finale.

LATEST PREVIEWS STAGE

L7 Previews

You are working with drag artistes, can you pull this off? “I have great concerns, concerns that they will turn up for rehearsals [laughs]. The author and I spoke about this and what they have to be is actors, and they have to take it seriously. There can be no audience participation which they are used to, but I have every confidence.”

STAGE: BIGGINS & THE BOYS IN THE BAND Dave Lynn and the UK’s top drag stars are playing it straight, well sort of, at the Theatre Royal Brighton, Christopher Biggins explains What brings you to The Boys In The Band ? “I have known the play for many years and Mart Crowley the playwright is a friend of mine. It came about because Dave Lynn, one of the drag artists who will be in the play, came up with the idea and took it to Kevin Wood the producer. In talking they came up with the idea of asking me. I have done a lot of directing over the years, so it just seemed a great opportunity to direct again, a play that I love and in Brighton, a place that I adore.”

Audiences may want to heckle? Will you have to instruct them not to? “I would never be so outrageous as to instruct an audience! The play runs in one piece for 80 minutes, then they have time for a drink before coming back to see the actors in their drag roles. They can heckle then.” So is it like an end of the pier summer show, but with savage teeth? “In a way, yes, I hope people who remember the play and the excellent film will come to see it again. It has so many wonderful and famous lines, lines like ‘who do you have to f*** to get a drink around here?’. Mart Crowley is undoubtedly one of the wittiest men I have ever known.” And is this one of the great gay plays of all time? “I think it is and recently that has been recognised. It has everything in it, great music, which they have to do things to. We gays love music; music is intertwined with our culture.” Yes, strung around bars and discos. “Absolutely, and then that was how and where you met people, when you were having a dance – unlike today.”

Would you have liked to be in it as well as direct it? “No! I’m far too old for any of the parts! They should be in their 30s and 40s, the drag queens will be thrilled when they hear I have said that.”

I am assuming you are not changing the period. “No, in no way, it is of its time and it must be, where would you take it to? It wouldn’t work, and we are keeping it in New York, too.”

It’s set in 1968, does it still have the same poignancy now as it had then? “The Menier Chocolate Factory have just done Torch Song Trilogy and people are saying it’s dated, which of course it is, but there is still an audience for it.”

I have spotted that you have gone for a recession busting ticket price. “What is the price? [laughs]” It’s a flat £20 for all seats, first come first served, including a drink. “Well I think we should be doing more of that, we want the theatre to be full every night and pricing it like this is a great way of making it accessible; £20, a drink and two shows, what a bargain!”

Surely it’s not dated but a period piece... “Absolutely, and of course it will be interesting for a young audience to see how gay men lived. Homosexuality has been through so many stages, it was taboo to be gay, then it was fashionable, all was going swimmingly, then along came AIDS and all gay men were murderers. It was a time-bomb of awful things happening. Being gay is fashionable again.” But at the same time there is something of a religious moral backlash. “Well I’m not sure that it’s the whole church, if the gay priests had to leave there would be no church. I know that people want to have gay weddings legalised, but I am not worried about that; we have civil partnerships which are brilliant, they do everything except the religion.There are many important things that we need to stop, bullying for instance, that is more important.” Does the play highlight that there are still inequalities? “If you come away thinking what a wonderful evening but that some of the issues are still out there then that is good. It’s a very funny play, the first act anyway, then the second act turns and my goodness it becomes a real horror. Michael wants to annihilate everyone in sight but ends with nothing, the saddest character on the stage. Dave Lynn will be fantastic in this role.”

TOTALLY COMPREHENSIVE!

Are you directing the second half of the show, the drag part? “No I’m not, but I will be taking a close interest as Dave does it.” You are obviously very excited about this. “Yes, very – and nervous too, but I am sure that with a good rehearsal period, which we have, we will make it great. Learning lines will be the tough part, I hate it, I always did.” When will we see you on stage again? “Oh, I’ve given up, I’m bored with the acting; been there, done that, got the t- shirt. I like doing odd bits but I’m happy now doing what I do.” The Boys in the Band – The Girls in the Band, Theatre Royal Brighton, Wed 22 – Fri 31 Aug (not Monday 27), 7.30pm plus Sunday at 2.30pm, £20 (includes a free drink), 0844 871 7650, www.atgtickets.com/brighton

MUSIC: THE TIME & SPACE MACHINE Veteran dance musician Richard Norris takes you to a more psychedelic place and time

T

he brainchild of Lewesbased Richard Norris, The Time & Space Machine follows in a long line of leftfield dance acts that he’s been associated with, including seminal early ‘90s dance outfit The Grid who he formed with Soft Cell’s Dave Ball, enjoying a number of hits including ‘Crystal Clear’, ‘Diablo’ and the hugely successful ‘Swamp Thing’, which made number three in the UK. Ball and Norris decided to pursue other avenues in the mid-90s with Norris forming The Droyds and remixing the likes of Armand van Helden, while Ball reformed Soft Cell with Marc Almond. They briefly got together again in 2005 and released the Doppelganger album, which failed to make any commercial impact. Forever having different projects on the go, Norris also set up The Time & Space Machine. “I started the Time & Space Machine as an extension of the edits and remixes I was doing with Erol Alkan as Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve. We’d done four mini albums of psychedelic edits, and remixed a number of artists including Midlake, Franz Ferdinand, Goldfrapp and the Chemical Brothers, but put the project on hold a couple of years ago. I wanted to continue in a more live set up, so started making tracks initially with just a drummer, Wildcat Will, then adding everything else myself over the top. This has now morphed into a five piece live band, featuring Craig Warnock, Richie Crago, Craig Mathewson. It’s a drums, guitars, bass, Farfisa, Space Echo and Korg MS10 set up, with harmony vocals and backwards noises.” The Time & Space Machine has seen Norris back on the road, “We are playing a bunch of festivals and gigs, and having a ball...it’s satisfying to hear tracks that took shape in the studio turning into fully fledged nine minute psychedelic monsters. We’re finding our own sound, developing it, and we’ll record it for the next album.” While The Grid incorporated instruments such as a banjo within their sound (on ‘Swamp Thing’) The Time & Space Machine is more psychedelic in its sound, as heard on their recent Taste the Lazer album. “I’m inspired by the eastern feel in psychedelic records. Plus there’s my Sitar Machine that I bought in Kerala.” His love of psychedelia extends to him organising the annual Lewes Psychedelic Festival (Zu Studios, 6 October). “That’s when all the freaks come out!” The Haunt, Friday 3 August, 7pm, £5 follow me on twitter

This will be the perfect chance to meet other fellow skaters before embarking on a street skate from 4pm along the seafront. BrightonSkate crew will be there and enjoying the action too. After the street skate, when the sun begins to go down, skaters are to head back to the West Pier for a roller disco, where SkateDance will share even more of their skills. No matter what level, whether you're on quads or in-lines, and no matter if you're fairly new to moving on four wheels or if you go to sleep with them on your feet – the event is for all abilities. The day is a great chance to learn from one another, celebrate the vibrant skate scene, and to try and master some new moves. Bring your own food and drink and Skatefresh will provide the music.

FILM: DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: DOG DAYS (U) Dir: David Bowers The popular series returns just in time for the summer holidays. Yay! Greg is having his usual difficulties with the world and its inhabitants, and when his own plans for the long hot vacation go awry what will he do? Probably something that’ll rile his big bro. Released Fri 3 Aug Showing at Odeon and Cineworld

FILM: TED (15) Director: Seth MacFarlane

F

rom the old adage: be careful what you wish for, you might just get it – comes this brand new comedy from the makers of Family Guy. Mix that history with this certificate and you can be sure there will be some adult humour, but at a very childish level, along with the general story which starts with John as a child and his best friend – his teddy bear. You know when you wished your teddy bear was alive? You probably didn’t think that if that particular dream came true he’d still be by your side well into adulthood and proving a bit of a stumbling block with the drop dead gorgeous girlfriend you’ve jammily got. Oops. Yes, Ted was a bit of a celebrity when he first appeared on the scene but now, like his 35-year-old roomie, he’s living in the sunshine of past glories, watching too much Flash Gordon and getting stoned. He’s that kind of teddy. Starring Mark Wahlberg as John, Mila Kunis as long-suffering girlfriend Lori and Seth MacFarlane (you, know, actor, director and writer of this and Family Guy) providing the voice of the furry, mischief-loving gooseberry, Ted, this off-the-wall flick is already being called a return to form for the anarchic MacFarlane. Released Friday 3 August Showing at Duke Of York’s Picturehouse, Odeon and Cineworld

STARS With Val Aviv

★ARIES {Mar 21–Apr 20}

If you’ve neglected to have a fun time, rather than just a busy time, this Full Moon will remind you that it’s never too late to drop your guard, let off steam with friends and enjoy yourself. By dropping the tension and kicking back, creativity can soar.

★TAURUS {Apr 21–May 21}

Most of you with Saturn in your working house are finding it difficult to get work. For those of you with big responsibilities within the work place, you may find that a new urgency is surfacing, and in turn this seems to feel like added pressure.

★GEMINI {May 22–June 21}

How lucky are you? Everyone thinks it’s luck, but really your success is down to your own initiative, imagination and optimism. Believing in your own abilities pays dividends and you’re actually about to take another leap forward!

★CANCER {June 22–July 22}

The Full Moon gives you a chance to look deeper into relationships surrounding shared resources. It’s as if a guardian angel is helping to smooth over old wounds and help you move forwards. You may become aware of that which it is okay to let go of now.

★LEO {July 23–Aug 22}

Being you is amazing! Although no-one can really share in that wonder, others can and will enjoy you being in their lives. The Full Moon is in your opposite sign so partnerships are getting the once over and emotions may surface which will want your attention.

★VIRGO {Aug 23–Sep 22}

You may be experiencing a lull in your vitality. This is common in the month leading up to your birthday. You have a lot going on and all that you want to happen will happen soon. Take a rest, relax and know that everything has its right moment.

★LIBRA {Sep 23–Oct 22}

While it’s not in your nature to be macho, competitive or ruthless, with both the zodiacs toughest planets in your sign it will be harder not to feel sharper, feistier and less malleable. The Full Moon insists you do what makes you happy.

★SCORPIO {Oct 23–Nov 21}

You have been avoiding your own space, or have been forced to face yourself without the company of others. While it is a testing time, it is as much enriching. Publicly you are getting recognition. Going against the grain will make you stand out.

★SAGITTARIUS {Nov 22–Dec 20}

The time you have given yourself for the pursuit of knowledge has given you an extra dimension of insight, which will make you a great teacher. You’re really appreciated for your strengths right now. Time is precious, so do more of what you love.

★CAPRICORN {Dec 21–Jan 19}

Through making the most of time at home, you can investigate hidden knowledge or occult sciences. While that may challenge some of your previously held views about yourself, it will ultimately have a liberating effect. Feel free to escape.

★AQUARIUS {Jan 20–Feb 19}

The full moon is in your sign which will help you reflect on your feelings in relation to a significant partnership. A partnership is up for review while Mercury continues to retrograde, the outcome will be a happy one, once some minor changes have been integrated.

★PISCES {Feb 20–Mar 20}

It’s strangely a hard working time, but an enjoyable one as well! You like to be of service and can be proud of all your achievements in this field during this period. The full moon will ask that you give time for your personal dreams to flourish as well as taking care of others.

L7 TV Your weekly TV guide 831 JULY – 6 AUGUST The first series split the critics, but I liked it. It was three episodes and this is made up of six. My difficulty with this is that Toby Stephens is no longer too outlandish. He’s still a bit of an ass, but there are no truly cringey moments of real dislike. Maybe With Victoria Nangle the other critics made an impact on this, softened his edges, but the harsher side of comedy characters is what makes British writing so much fun and what always gets lambasted when being ‘adapted’ for the US market. I didn’t think we really had to do it here too. My second issue is that his new partner, played by the lovely Miranda Raison, is not down-to-earth enough. She’s a bit uptight, a workaholic, yet still silly enough to send up the hard sell Stephens gets from a particularly predatory car saleswoman, with t’s the difficult second series. Vexed series one lewd gestures and suggestive faces behind the starred Toby Stephens and Lucy Punch as cheese vixen’s back. What’s the point of the eccentricities if and actual copper partner (not chalk) in a there’s no-one there tapping their long-suffering toe collection of comedy crime capers. He was an ass, a patiently and looking to the sky in exasperation? fool and a misogynistic pain-inThe power of the straight man the-neck who had infuriated away (or woman) is not to be every partner he’d ever had. He underestimated. It’s more than just “His new partner a tradition, it’s a method to get the hadn’t set foot in the actual nick in years (creating a useful device most out of a pairing and the is not down-tofor all the police work to actually material they can share.

The also trying to do a three-legged race tied to another loss of Lucy Punch’s actual police person, dragging equally mal-coordinated bull. And she was a regular Stephens out of scrapes and allowing him the pretty good copper who just wanted to do her job opportunity to shine, pleased as Punch, should he and coped with him as best she could. crack the case himself, is felt in this season opener.

tuesday 31 Beauty And The Beast: Ugly Face Of Prejudice Channel 4, 8pm A curious choice of title for a show supposedly challenging attitudes towards appearance. This episode sees Simon, who has a condition that prevented his lower jaw forming properly, meet Corinne who spends around £3,000 a month on beauty treatments. Challenging indeed.

Lost Children Channel 4, 10pm This two-part documentary follows some of the troubled pupils at High Close School in Berkshire, that takes children with behavioural problems who have been excluded from mainstream school. Much of their anger masks deep familial issues that stretch back generations, but can they be helped?

Wallander: Sidetracked Part 1 BBC4, 12am Kurt Wallander must be wondering why these things keep happening to him. If it’s not his neighbour putting an old corpse in his garden to find, it’s a girl burning herself right in front of him. There’s also a few murders that involve scalpings to contend with. All revealed in part two.

wednesday 1 24 Hours In A&E Channel 4, 9pm There is a strange fascination with this show as it opens up the chaotic beauty of Kings College Hospital in South London. Filmed around the clock over a 45-day period we are given a small glimpse into the heart warming, and rending, stories that the patients, their families and staff go through everyday.

2 Broke Girls Channel 4, 11.10 & 11.40pm Here’s a double bill of the US sitcom about a couple of waitresses in their 20s – sound familiar? From the creator of Sex In The City, the show has widely been criticised for its stereotypical depiction of the girls’ AsianAmerican boss. Also there’s some bad sex jokes. Have a look and decide for yourself.

The Two-Thousand-Year-Old Computer BBC4, 11pm This tells the little known story of the 1901 discovery by a group of divers excavating a Roman shipwreck off the southern coast of Greece, of a mental object about the size of a laptop that was used to try and predict solar eclipses. It is now regarded to be the world’s oldest computer.

thursday 2 The Churchills Channel 4, 8pm David Starkey sometimes courts controversy when speaking about modern politics, but when it comes to the past there are few to match. Here he looks at how Winston Churchill became defined through his writings on his ancestor John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough, and how this shaped his understanding of war.

Undercover At The News Of The World Channel 4, 11.05pm Still a hot topic at the moment as the Leveson Inquiry rumbles on, this is an account of the selfstyled Fake Sheikh of Wapping from his right-hand man. It tells how he tricked celebrities into revealing various indiscretions and looks at whether it was all in the public interest.

FILM: Dante’s Peak ITV2, 7pm As volcano disaster movies go it’s not the worst, or the least believable (except for the bit where Pierce Brosnan out-runs a pyroclastic flow in a battered old Ford truck). He’s a scientist sent to investigate a troublesome volcano by a small town. He thinks it’s gonna blow but no-one will believe him. They’ll see.

saturday 4 Top Of The Pops 2: Summertime Special BBC2, 9.50pm Thought TOTPs had gone? It’s on now more than ever, trawling their vast archive of weird, wacky and classic performances, with a touch of Mark Radcliffe’s own brand of sarcasm. As it’s finally summer have some Jazzy Jeff, Bananarama and Bryan Adams. Plenty for him to work with, then.

FILM: Heat Channel 4, 11.15pm Michael Mann’s classic crime thriller sees two Hollywood greats, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, come face to face (famously for the first time) on either side of the law. It centres on a bank job gone wrong and how the chase begins to take a toll on them. There’s also plenty of car chases and gun fights as well. Ace.

The Midnight Beast E4, 11.45pm If you’re not going out you might as well stay up and watch The Midnight Beast. It’s a curious concept, beginning life as a YouTube parody band that satirises youth culture. They’ve had 40 million hits on the site, a sell out tour and a book. So how will it transfer into the cold light of a mainstream sitcom?

Olympics 2012 BBC3, 9am, 2pm, 7pm Yes it’s still going on, had enough yet? No, well you’re in luck then as there’s various coverage from 6am until midnight.
