  1. Yikes! It was £25 when it was published and I thought that was a touch pricey when I bought mine. There is a copy in the British Library. I don't know if it available for an inter-library loan (I have no idea how that works), but if you're in London, you could probably have a look at it in the reading room (again I have no idea how that works).

  4. What happens if you mix ballet and magic? Yan Yan Ma shows you. There are several clips of her on youtube (some with an annoying voice over). Her she is as an assistant in a short story
  5. It is an adaption of the definition from Ambrose Bierce's "The Devils Dictionary". Telephone: An invention of the devil which abrogates some of the advantages of making a disagreeable person keep his distance.

  8. If you click on the volume dodad on the task bar, it might show volume controls for two output devices, hdmi and pc speakers. Mute PC speaker and unmute hdmi. Alternatively, right click the dodad and check playback devices

  10. Both BBC Genome and imdb show only 27th Dec 1980 for Wayne Sleep on Record Breakers. Of course, there are known to be errors/omissions in both databases. I was surprised to learn from imdb that Wayne Sleep was in The Goodies. I'll have to dig out the VHS tapes, and see if I still have that episode.
  11. Ballerina able to achieve professional-standard arabesque after hip replacement - Express and Star
  12. It is split into two sections on Vimeo, both with different video formats. I think they have done this to make it difficult to pirate - joining different format files together is hard. Very enjoyable program - I wish I had been there to see it live.
