Nicholas Smith, Star of British Sitcom ‘Are You Being Served?,’ Dies at 81

7 December 2015 12:52 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Nicholas Smith, one of the stars of the key British sitcom “Are You Being Served?,” which was set in a department store, died on Sunday. He was 81 and had been in hospitalized for seven weeks following a fall at home.

The long-running show, which aired on BBC1 from 1972-85, followed the misadventures of the staff and customers (the latter portrayed by popular British actors in guest appearances, such as Joanna Lumley), of the clothing floor departments of the fictional London department store Grace Brothers.

The jug-eared Smith played department store manager Cuthbert Rumbold in the hit sitcom, which also starred John Inman, Molly Sugden, Frank Thornton and Wendy Richard, and frequently drew audiences of more than 20 million. The show aired in the U.S. on PBS and BBC America.

More recently, he voiced the eccentric Reverend Clement Hedges in the 2005 Wallace & Gromit film “The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.”

His TV credits also included “Doctor Who, »

‘For Your Eyes Only’ is Moore at His Most Connery

3 November 2015 8:59 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

For Your Eyes Only

Written by Richard Maibaum and Michael G. Wilson, based on Ian Fleming’s short stories “For Your Eyes only” and “Risico”

Directed by John Glen

UK, 1981,

You probably have never heard this before, but my favourite James Bond film of all time, For Your Eyes Only, was the first 007 film I ever saw. (Spookily, this is exactly the same reason that my Huffington Post doppelgänger likes the film.)

But I don’t love Roger Moore’s fourth Bond film for nostalgic reasons, or at least not completely. Every so often, the 007 franchise strips Bond of his gadgets and gives us a back to basics story where a more ruthless secret agent has only his wits to fall back on: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, The Living Daylights, Casino Royale and For Your Eyes Only are the best examples. Of these, For Your Eyes Only stands »

‘Live and Let Die’ gets Roger Moore’s Bond tenure off to a sputtering start

2 November 2015 8:00 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Live and Let Die

Written by Tom Mankiewicz

Directed by Guy Hamilton

UK, 1973

1973’s Live and Let Die unleashed a new kind of Bond upon the world, a Bond whose bland propriety and vacuous quips would dominate the screen for another twelve years. Roger Moore, taking over for Sean Connery, the third different Bond in three films, had enjoyed popular success as a television star on mystery series “The Saint.” He had originally tested for the role prior to inaugural series entry Dr. No, but was deemed “too pretty” by Bond producers Harry Salzman and Albert “Cubby” Broccoli. Sean Connery had only grudgingly agreed to return for 1971’s Diamonds Are Forever, and had no interest in continuing further due to tension with the producers. Salzman was not a fan of the choice of Moore, but was overruled by Broccoli, who saw in the TV star the opportunity to create an »

10 cult ITV classics that everyone forgets - from Terrahawks to the Second Coming

22 September 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

ITV has hit a mighty milestone - first launched on September 22, 1955, the home of The X Factor, Downton Abbey and more is 60 years old today.

In its six decades, ITV has produced some of the biggest, best and most memorable TV shows in British broadcasting history.

But while everyone else is talking up Gladiators, Coronation Street and Blind Date, we wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate a few of the channel's less celebrated gems.

1. The Krypton Factor (1977-1995)

"Television's Toughest Quiz!" boomed the announcer back when the show launched in 1977. And even almost forty years later, nothing has quite matched Granada's brutal search for a UK superperson since.

Resembling a cross between a byzantine parlour game and a Soviet-era punishment for shoplifting, each week saw four more contestants subjected to a variety of cruel and unusual tests – from terrifying memory tests to landing a Boeing 747 (albeit on a simulator).

But worst of all? »

London — Actor Aubrey Morris, best known for his role as Mr. Deltoid in Stanley Kubrick’s “A Clockwork Orange,” has died. He was 89.
