Music has always offered the choice between escapism and counterattack. At the time of another Tory meltdown - with draconian benefit cuts and the increasing privatization of the NHS - there is no new sound expressing political protest. Ironically people are voicing their disgust through Judy Garland and a Hollywood escapist fantasy from seven decades ago.

Film Review: Oblivion

Jack Pelling

Oblivion is an insultingly cynical, derivative and lazy clot of a film with clear aspirations for mediocrity; a meritless exercise in propheteering with a genuine contempt for its audience.

Peter Stringfellow

I first met Baroness Thatcher at Stringfellows, for a Conservative fundraiser I hosted in 2005. It was a Sunday night and none of our dancers were performing. I had been told by the organisers that it would be a good idea not to have the dancers there. But Lady Thatcher had a surprise in store. In the middle of the evening, she looked me directly in the eye and asked: "Where are your girls?"

Die-hard book fans will be squirming at the sight of Theon Greyjoy, who doesn't even appear until much later in the books. The sheer amount of activity going on in this episode felt like a visual binge of narratives and characters.

Who's More Out of Touch: 'EastEnders' or 'Youngers'?

Yomi Adegoke | Posted 04.06.2013 | UK Universities & Education
Yomi Adegoke

The depiction of teenagers on British television isn't offensive; it's hilarious. No matter how many 'youf' dramas are created, television still struggles to create dramas that are relatable, being out of touch with the even the minor details such as what trainers a character should be wearing.
