Paul Vaughan obituary

26 November 2014 9:40 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Broadcaster loved for his mellifluous voice on radio and television

I first heard the voice in Oxford in the late 1940s during a college production of King John. “Now, say, Chatillon, what would France with us?” The words were those of Shakespeare’s slimiest monarch, but the voice could have been that of Henry V. It belonged to Paul Vaughan, who has died aged 89. What I heard that night later became known to millions as the “Horizon voice” on BBC2. Bold, articulate, and trustworthy as the Bible, it was the perfect disguise for a royal conman. And although Vaughan, in his many years as a voiceover virtuoso, declared that he would never employ it in the service of tobacco, warfare or the Conservative party, he would have had no difficulty in convincing the wariest of listeners that rattlesnake venom was a wholesome as mother’s milk.

The voice was his prize accomplishment, »

The Definitive Scary Scenes from Non-Horror Films: 40-31

11 October 2014 1:34 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

40. Night of the Hunter (1955)

Scene: The Preacher on the Horizon

Video: Just like a few others in this section of the list, Charles Laughton’s brilliant Night of the Hunter isn’t really a horror film, but still sets out to keep the audience on edge. Starring a diabolical Robert Mitchum as a preacher/serial killer Reverend Harry Powell, it follows him as he tries to woo his former cellmate’s widow Willa (Shelly Winters), hoping to learn where he has hidden his bank loot. Powell devises that his children John and Pearl must know, but he struggles to gain young John’s trust. When Willa learns of his plan, Powell is forced to kill her and hide the body, leaving him as sole caretaker of the children, who flee down the river. And then the scene. Having believed they have escaped Powell, »

Doctor Who; Horizon Should I Eat Meat?; The Honourable Woman TV review

23 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Peter Capaldi has yet to sink his teeth into his new role, but luckily there was plenty of meaty fare elsewhere

Doctor Who (BBC1) | iPlayer

Horizon: Should I Eat Meat? (BBC2) | iPlayer

The Honourable Woman (BBC2) | iPlayer

After months of being whipped into a frenzy of anticipation by the BBC's marketing department, I was disappointed to find myself slipping out of consciousness during the thrill-free early scenes of the new Doctor Who. Admittedly, we had the momentary distraction of a massive roaring dinosaur wading threateningly down the Thames (my heart went out to the hardworking CGI team when the poor creature had to be burned to death after five minutes on the grounds of plot irrelevance), but Peter Capaldi as the latest Time Lord must have been wondering what he'd got himself into as he capered around Victorian London in a nightgown, spouting nonsense for a good half hour. »

Horizon: Should I Eat Meat? The Big Health Dilemma review: an incoherent message with inconclusive results

18 August 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

By beefing up his daily meat consumption, Michael Mosley put himself on the line for this documentary on the effect of red meat on health. But it seems that effect may be no effect at all

Michael Mosley is the BBC's medical guinea pig. In the interests of science and making entertaining documentaries, he's been up, down and sideways after taking a cocktail of mood-altering drugs, and he's wired himself up to any piece of hospital machinery he can find. It can't be long before he does the world's first live kidney donation on TV. He's also big on food and diet he virtually kick-started the 5:2 phenomenon and in Horizon: Should I Eat Meat? The Big Health Dilemma (BBC2), he was back on familiar territory with a mission to double his daily consumption of burgers and bacon to 130g and measure the effects on his body after a month. »

Why Michael Mosley is the master of TV science documentaries

18 August 2014 5:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Michael Mosley is a name that arguably not many people would know outside of BBC Four or Horizon fans. Which is a shame, because the journalist and presenter has been one of the finest documentary-makers for many years.

The Indian-born producer is back for his latest Horizon special tonight (August 18), so if you have yet to tune in to one of his many scientific journeys, this would be a great time to start.

After producing a number of science programmes for the BBC, including Robert Winston's The Human Face and Jeremy Clarkson's Inventions that Changed the World, Mosley stepped in front of the camera for BBC Four's excellent Medical Mavericks in 2008.

The four-part series delved into the history of the scientists and doctors who went to great lengths to further the world, often in rather grotesque ways.

This has become the benchmark for Mosley's programmes. His shows focus on science, »

Silk; Horizon: How You Really Make Decisions – TV review

24 February 2014 11:50 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The brilliant Maxine Peake is wasted in the BBC's rather soulless drama about legal eagles' ups and downs

There can't be many professions with such intense highs and lows as a barrister has. Professional sports person maybe. Barista probably not; likewise television critic.

For Martha (Maxine Peake), it's a deep trough at the start of this first episode of series three of Silk (BBC1). The appeal of a client – an innocent client – is refused. Send him down! The poor man later kills himself.

To make things more miserable for Martha, her arch rival Clive (Rupert Penry-Jones) is the man of the moment; he has finally made QC and is having a big silk party (sounds sexier than it is). Martha consoles herself with the Clash and Joy Division. And with Clive, they appear to be a thing now, did we know that? Maybe love will tear them apart.

Doctor Who: Dark Eyes 2 review

18 February 2014 1:28 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Philip Tibbetts 18 Feb 2014 - 09:11

Philip checks out Big Finish's latest solid, enjoyable Eighth Doctor audio adventure, Dark Eyes 2...

Dark Eyes 2 is the latest instalment of the Eighth Doctor’s continuing Big Finish audio adventures, comprised of four stories: The Traitor, The White Room, Time’s Horizon and The Eyes of the Master. This time around the Doctor finds himself, and former acquaintances, caught up in the machinations of the Daleks and a resurrected Master.

As an ongoing series, Dark Eyes appears to be set in the foreboding twilight of the Eighth Doctor’s life, following on from the harrowing events of Lucie Miller. Dark Eyes is titled after new companion Molly O’Sullivan, the last of the companions named by the dying Doctor in Night of the Doctor.

The first Dark Eyes arc was released back in 2012 and whilst being popular it certainly had flaws. Foremost amongst these »

Modern Family; Horizon: The Power of the Placebo – TV review

18 February 2014 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Phil Dunphy is still a real man – part monster and part role model

One of the main complaints voiced by so-called men's rights activists is that in popular culture husbands and fathers are routinely portrayed as moronic incompetents. They appear to detect some sort of organised malice in this, as if Homer Simpson were the product of a conspiracy hatched by our feminist overlords.

More sensible men's advocates, meanwhile, maintain that men are still straitjacketed by old expectations, and given no room to express vulnerability, doubt, or any emotion besides anger. Masculinity, it seems, just doesn't furnish the modern male with very many acceptable ways to be.

Into this vacuum strides Phil Dunphy of Modern Family (Sky1), now returning for its fifth season. Transparently needy, caring but selfish, both a maddeningly attentive father ("Sorry," he says, "was I being proud of you too loud?") and self-professed "cool dad" (in truth, »

Horizon: Man on Mars; Danny Baker's Rockin' Decades – TV review

10 February 2014 11:50 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Wasted muscles, psychological damage … and patchy Wi-Fi. We're not going to be ready to hit the ground running when we travel to Mars

When we abandon this increasingly useless planet and head, as surely we must, to Mars, there will be a few problems on arrival. It's not just that there is, as yet, no baggage reclaim, but rather that, after a 15-month flight across space, prey to radiation from solar flares, having recycled again and again our own urine and solid matter, we won't be ready to hit the ground running. In fact, our muscles and bones will have wasted so much during that 56m km journey that we will have to be carried from our landing craft and nursed until we recover the strength to stand upright.

In Alex Hearle's superb, if sexistly titled, Horizon: Man on Mars (BBC2), there was footage of enfeebled Russian cosmonauts »

After announcing earlier this month that Jon Favreau’s Chef and the Veronica Mars movie will be making their world debuts at SXSW this year, the festival has revealed its full line-up, including further very promising world premieres, alongside appearances from some of the year’s most high-profile films.
