I’m planning on watching All the Queen’s Horses, Police Ten 7 and Big Fat Gypsy Weddings
It’s a bit of a royal entertainment extravaganza tonight, as Prime screens All the Queen’s Horses: A Diamond Jubilee Special, at 7.30pm.
Narrators including Dame Helen Mirren and Martin Clunes take the audience through the 261 overseas visits that the Queen has undertaken during her reign.
Then, over 550 horses and more than 1200 performers (including Joss Stone, Il Divo and Susan Boyle) take to the arena to showcase the traditional dances and horse displays from each country in front of the Queen. Crikey.
Police Ten 7 also screens at 7.30pm, on TV2. This week a pedestrian takes on a bus and comes off second best, and officers interrupt some ‘man wrestling’ in town. Plus, there will be all the usual photos of criminals that need arresting. Am I the only one who eagerly awaits the day when I can catch a ‘baddie’? I haven’t yet recognised anyone. Perhaps that’s a good thing.
At 8.30pm on TV One, it is, of course, Big Fat Gypsy Weddings, one of the best cringeworthy, yet thoroughly entertaining shows on TV right now. On tonight’s episode, a clean family name is crucial for gypsies, and the consequences of losing it are devastating. Ooh, I wonder what someone’s going to do to have their good name sullied?
