Kenneth Branagh and Kate Winslet lead Queen's birthday honours list

Actors pick up knighthood and Cbe while Pm revives British Empire Medal as reward for 'big society' volunteers

David Cameron's "big society" gong, the anachronistically named British Empire Medal, makes its first appearance for 20 years in the Queen's birthday honours today, rewarding "hands-on" service to local communities.

As actors Kenneth Branagh and Kate Winslet collect a knighthood and Cbe respectively, 293 BEMs, known as the "working-class gong" and scrapped by John Major in 1991 in his efforts to make the honours system "classless", are also awarded.

Revived by Cameron to encourage the "big society" and reward volunteering, Bem recipients include waitress Patricia Carter, for services to the hospitality industry, apiarist Geoffrey Hopkinson, for services to beekeeping, and many others involved with local community work, charities, and sports.

Sir Bob Kerslake, head of the civil service who chairs the main honours committee, said the re-introduction of the Bem for the Diamond Jubilee extended »

Ireland 21-23 Wales – Rugby Union Six Nations Match Report

5 February 2012 12:17 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Ball In Touch:The final game of the opening weekend saw Wales travel to Dublin to take on Ireland, who would be looking to avenge their defeat in the World Cup Quarter-Final. Let us know what you thought of the game or anything else either in the comments below or on Twitter @Ballintouch and remember to use our handy beginners A-z guide to rugby, here.

All the talk was predictably about the World Cup quarter-final between these two sides that was won by the Welsh and led to their failed semi-final effort against France.  The Irish side seemed to select as many as possible from those still available, the absence of Brian O’Driscoll through injury being the most notable. His replacement Keith Earls had also dropped out of the team so Fergus McFadden had all the pressure of the number 13 shirt to deal with.

DVD Review: Rugby World Cup 2011 Official Review

18 January 2012 12:03 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Spoilers Alert: If you don’t want to know that New Zealand won the World Cup, England didn’t impress and the ‘magical’ Quade Cooper was more Debbie McGee than Houdini, do not read on.

Of course if you are reading this there is a good chance you are a rugby fan and knew all that, or at least I hope you did. It’s quite interesting now to review this dvd several month on from the tournament, with the dust settled and the rose tinted glasses firmly in place, we are taken back to New Zealand by the good folk of Sky Sports Nz.

Anyone that watches sport dvds, more so the official ones, will understand my hesitation at getting too excited when putting this one in the dvd player. Regularly they are unsubtle cash-ins by someone clearly with no understanding of the sport. Thankfully »
