ABC News Correspondent Linsey Davis Shares How Her Son Inspired Her New Children's Book

To find inspiration, all Emmy winner Linsey Davis had to do was look at her son.

The ABC News correspondent just released her first children’s book titled The World Is Awake: A Celebration of Everyday Blessings, which “inspires children to be thankful for all of God’s blessings that surround us in our daily lives,” according to its description.

In an exclusive interview with People, Davis chats about the whimsical new story (co-written with Joseph Bottum and illustrated by Lucy Fleming), dishing on how she found time to write while working and parenting — and how her 3-year-old little boy Ayden was her biggest inspiration.

Survivors – Series One Review

Villordsutch reviews Big Finish Audio Productions’ Survivors – Series One…

Written By Matt Fitton, Jonathan Morris, Andrew Smith, John Dorney.

Directed by Ken Bentley.

Sound Design by Neil Gardner.

Music by Nicholas Briggs.

Starring Lucy Fleming (Jenny Richards), Ian McCulloch (Greg Preston), John Banks (Daniel Connor), Louise Jameson (Jackie Burchall), Sinead Keenan (Susie Edwards), Caroline Langrishe (Helen Wiseman), Adrian Lukis (James Gillison), Chase Masterson (Maddie Price), Terry Molloy (John Redgrave), Camilla Power (Fiona Bell), Phil Mulryne (Phil Bailey), San Shella (Sayed) and Carolyn Seymour (Abby Grant).

I’m rather a big fan of Survivors, another classic Terry Nation original, though I hadn’t hit the age of four by the time it had finished its original run; I’d caught up with it some twenty or so years later and found it to be quite fantastic – granted it wavered in the final series, but it was still a fantastic show as a whole.

William Boyd's Bond: it's not just casual sex. What 007 wants is a relationship

Solo, by William Boyd, is latest novel to follow in Ian Fleming's footsteps, which charts spy 'recklessly motivated by revenge'

We may have got James Bond slightly wrong. Yes, he is a prodigious drinker, heavy smoker and consummate killer, but when it comes to his womanising, the author of his new incarnation believes that the spy was more honourable than some think. "It seems to me he wants a relationship," said William Boyd. "It is not just casual sex."

Boyd was speaking at the launch of his new Bond book, Solo, at which he was asked who his favourite Bond girl was. "I'm not too keen on the expression 'Bond girl' because I think Bond has relationships with women," he said. Having said that, he named the character Honeychile Rider – "nothing to do with Ursula Andress playing her in the movie … I think she is a very interesting Bond woman".

Review: Criterion Presents "David Lean Directs NOËL Coward" On Blu-ray And DVD

  • CinemaRetro
On Blu-ray and DVD

4-Disk Box Set

By Raymond Benson

Any fan of British cinema must celebrate Criterion’s deluxe packaging of David Lean’s first four films as a director. These collaborations with writer, performer, and “personality” Noël Coward are exemplary examples of the fine work made by the Two Cities Unit production house, which was formed during the Second World War. In each case, the films are presented in beautiful new high-definition digital transfers from the 2008 BFI National Archive’s restorations. And, as this is a review for Cinema Retro, the readers of which include many 007 fans, it must be pointed out that there is indeed a connection between the films (three of them, anyway) and Bond. Actress Celia Johnson was Ian Fleming’s sister-in-law (her husband was Ian’s older brother, Peter Fleming), and her daughters Kate Grimond and Lucy Fleming are currently on the Board of

Remember Pa fans tomorrow is Survivors day

I just wanted to remind all you hardcore Pa fans out there that tomorrow, April 27, 2010, is a day we here in the states and in Canada have been waiting for for a looooong time. That's right, Terry Nation's original Survivors television series is - for the first time ever - hitting R1 DVD. That's all three seasons on 6 discs.

You can get it on Amazon, but I'm hearing that it's cheaper if you grab it from the BBC America Shop.

Special Features include:

• "The Cult of Survivors"

• Photo Galleries

Lucy Fleming's Photographs

• BBC Publicity stills

Also out tomorrow from BBC America is a boxed set of season 1 & 2 of the BBC's Survivors remake series. Long time readers know we've been following the new series closely, having reviewed each and every episode. Perhaps not consistently strong, but a decent Pa show I think.

Special Features include:

• Making-of featurette (27")

• Character Profiles
