    Bugle Contest 2010

    Purely by chance ;) I happen to be on holiday in Cornwall at the time of the Bugle contest. As I've never been before (to the Bugle contest or to Cornwall) does anyone have any practical advice eg about parking, food, getting there early, best place to watch from, etc. The official website...

    Good night, and good luck

    Go and see this film. It's still only February, so I can't say that it is the best or most important film you will see this year, but it is definately a contender. Just as Arthur Miller used the Salem witch trials to comment contemporary (i.e. late 1940s) America, George Clooney uses Ed...
