About gsvalentine

I am a 35-year-old guy, who lives in Stamford, in the East Midlands, England. I was born in Chorley, Lancashire, England, on the 29th September 1979. Most people don’t believe me that I was born in England due to my strong Scottish accent. My star sign is Libra. I am 5’9” tall, 30″ waist, with blonde hair, which is sometimes short, sometimes long. I have light brown eyes. Which most people think are very sexy. I just don’t see it, myself.

Chris Tarrant: Extreme Railway Journeys (Channel 5/HD | 8:00pm to 9:00pm | Thursday 3rd December 2020)

Walking Britain’s Lost Railways (Channel 5/HD | 8:00pm to 9:00pm | Friday 4th December 2020)

Rob Bell follows the Callander and Oban Railway, an epic 70-mile route from Scotland’s Lowlands to its glorious west coast. Setting off from Callander, he recalls the 14 years of determination it took to build this railway and how, with the help of local hero Rob Roy, it changed Victorian perceptions of the Highlands. No longer a distant land of fearsome Clans, the mountains, lochs and valleys were now a romantic and accessible destination of choice. Spectacles on the line include Glen Ogle, Loch Tay and an impressive terminus still evident at Oban.

The Sound of TV with Neil Brand (BBC 4/HD | 9:00pm to 10:00pm | Friday 4th December 2020)

The composer addresses the history and use of music in television, beginning by examining the enduring power of the theme tune. On the streets of Coronation Street, he encounters a brass band playing the music that has announced the start of each episode since it began. Following the trail of the soap opera world, Neil meets composer Simon May, creator of the EastEnders theme tune, and travels to the US to talk with Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons, to uncover how its orchestrated theme music is a homage to classic TV of the past. Themes to Z Cars, Bagpuss, Game of Thrones, Mastermind and Grandstand are also celebrated.
