A Grumpy Old Man ( Aged 43 ) Writes
27 June 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

I have mixed feelings about this. Part of me is glad to see the modern world getting a well-deserved kicking, even if it is from well-paid and over-exposed showbiz figures. Some of the views expressed ( particularly John O'Farrell's ) seem eminently sensible. But another part of me says: "This is patronising in the extreme.". Despite the title, its clearly aimed at the young. One imagines them tuning in and exclaiming: "Ha Ha! The sad old fools don't realise the world has moved on!". Actually, the concept is nothing new. In 1976, the B.B.C. made a series called 'Write On!' in which members of the public were invited to speak their minds on air. Their ideas included the teaching of First Aid in schools ( now why was that never taken up? ), the promotion of fishing as a national sport, complaints about the lack of television programmes aimed at the young ( how times have changed! ) and the use of incidental music in films. It only ran a single season, yet was vastly superior to 'Grumpy Old Men'. Who cares what millionaires think?
