Stars And Humane Society International/UK: Let Retired Military Dogs Live

Amidst growing public outcry that the Defence Animal Centre is planning to euthanize three retired military working dogs despite professional handlers offering to adopt them, Humane Society International/UK has urged the Centre to immediately reverse its decision.

The following is a statement from Hsi/UK Executive Director Claire Bass:

“We are extremely saddened to hear that the Defence Animal Centre plans to euthanize Kevin, Dazz and Driver, three retired military working dogs, despite outcries not only from the public but from the handlers who worked closely with them. If euthanized, these dogs, who served for years and saved countless lives, will have been robbed of the opportunity to spend their golden years in loving homes. After a lifetime of duty to protect humans, we have a duty of care to them, not to dispose of them like unwanted equipment.

“We urge the Defence Animal Centre to reconsider this decision,

Celebrities Rally Against The Cruel Fur Trade

Ahead of the international day of action ‘Fur Free Friday’ on November 24th (Black Friday), comedian Sara Pascoe and actor Peter Egan have joined ranks with a growing number of celebrities backing a campaign by Animal Defenders International (Adi) to end the cruel fur trade.

Peter Egan said: “Don’t be fooled, fur is far from humane. Trapped in tiny cages, the animals endure a terrible life, and death. Please, never support this cruel industry. Join Adi and make a difference.”

Sara Pascoe said: “With so many alternatives to fur available, no animal need suffer. Using the real thing is cruel and unnecessary. Please join me and Adi in supporting the designers whose fabrics, but not principles, are fake.”

Since the launch of Adi’s shocking films ‘A Lifetime’ about the brutal short lives of two foxes, brothers Borys and Eryk, and ‘Never Humane’ exposing inhumane killing on a Polish fur farm,

In the coalition’s campaign video launched today, dogs, including stolen family pets, are shown being roughly snatched from the streets and crammed onto the back of trucks with their legs and mouths bound with string.

John Cleese to Star in a British Sitcom for First Time in Nearly 40 Years
John Cleese is set for a return to a BBC sitcom for the first time since “Fawlty Towers,” the broadcaster said Tuesday. The “Monty Python” legend will co-star alongside actress Alison Steadman in new six-part comedy series “Edith,” which has been commissioned for BBC One.

Created and written by Charles McKeown, who was Oscar-nominated for 1985’s “Brazil” directed by Cleese’s fellow Python Terry Gilliam, “Edith” will also star Jason Watkins, Jessica Hynes, Anne Reid, Rosie Cavaliero, James Cosmo and Peter Egan. The show re-teams Cleese and Steadman, who played husband and wife in Christopher Morahan’s 1986 film “Clockwise.”

“If you had carte blanche on your fantasy BBC One comedy cast then you’d not be far off the ‘Edith’ line-up,” said Shane Allen, controller of comedy commissioning at the BBC. “It’s also a huge pleasure to welcome John Cleese back to the land of BBC sitcom – his last one did all right.”

Night Falls on ‘Downton Abbey’: Behind the Scenes of the Final Episodes

Night Falls on ‘Downton Abbey’: Behind the Scenes of the Final Episodes
It is a hot, humid day in rural Hampshire, England, in high summer. Inside Highclere Castle, the mock-Gothic Victorian estate that gives spectacular views over the surrounding countryside, preparations for a Yorkshire Christmas are underway. The fire is lit; elaborate floral displays are arranged on the staircase and in the sitting room where the Crawley family will gather for the festive celebrations. And a makeup artist wearing shorts and sunglasses is touching up the Countess of Grantham’s face.

The year is 1925, but the 21st century keeps intruding on the set of “Downton Abbey,” the now-iconic show created by Julian Fellowes that gave TV executives the confidence to reinvest in period drama.

There is an end-of-semester atmosphere as cast and crew go about their work on the series’ sixth and final season. The sister and elderly father of Hugh Bonneville (aka Robert, Earl of Grantham) are visiting the set. So,

Paradise Postponed - box set review

John Mortimer's socialist riposte to Thatcherism is beautifully acted and simply oozes nostalgia for a bygone Britain

Paradise Postponed was part of the wave of heritage drama that engulfed Britain during the Thatcher years. John Mortimer had recently adapted Brideshead Revisited and now threw himself into this panoramic history of postwar Britain, anchoring it in the goings-on in the fictional home counties village of Rapstone Fanner, and placing two mysteries at its core: why did leftie vicar Simeon Simcox leave his brewery millions to wealthy local Tory MP Leslie Titmuss, and why doesn't his wife seem to mind? "I was never all that concerned about the New Jerusalem," murmurs Mrs Simcox, played by Annette Crosbie long before One Foot in the Grave. "I suppose I've always had far too much to do in the garden."

The plot flashes forward and back over 40 years, taking in the postwar Labour government,
