Day 28: Sick Bed

on January 28, 2012

I’m not good at being poorly. What I’m even worse at is being tired. So when the two occur at the same time, I wouldn’t want to be near me.

Rudely awoken at 3am for some parental duties I couldn’t get back to sleep. So took to watching iplayer on my phone.

Shame on me I’d forgotten that the re-launched Room 101 was on last night. I adore Sarah Millican and her naughty sense of humour. She plays so ‘nice’ on the panel shows, her stand-up performances are filthy in comparison. Not a fan of Gabby Logan normally I was also impressed by the sports presenter.

101 was over in a flash and after some blind stumbling over the site I found We’ll Take Manhattan the story of the love affair between 1960s supermodel Jean Shrimpton (Karen Gillan) and iconic photographer David Bailey (Aneurin Barnard). Took a little bit to get past Gillan not being Amelia ‘Amy’ Pond and the hope that The Doctor might pop up from around the corner at some point. I was impressed.

Beautifully shot, the mis en scene appeared spot on. The introduction of Bailey as a photographer’s assistant and the previous upper class models and photo posing by numbers.

The part that appealed to me was Bailey standing for what he believed in even though it flew against everything that Vogue stood for back then. The partnership with Shrimpton definately set the course for modern fashion photography.

It is programming like this that makes me sad that the BBC rely so heavily of reality programming and classic repeats. Check out the BBC4 film while you can on

Today’s activities: Comfort food eaten from a bowl with a big spoon under a blanket.
