At my Multimedia Links - TV/Videos list , there are a number of new entries, including the missing first interview with Colin Bates on CBBC (pictured) and even some TV alerts this week surrounding the one-year anniversary, including:
PAUL O'GRADY (Tuesday at 5:00 pm on Channel 4) with Elton John to discuss the success of BETM GMTV (Thursday at 6:58 am on ITV1) with Liam Mower
Great article, with topics that include the reason Liam Mower left the Royal Ballet School, being homsick, leaving the show and how Sharon Osbourne and Liz Hurley let the boys squeeze their breasts at Elton John's wedding.

Whatsonstage Award Nominations - Ends January 31 Jan 30
2006, 07:56:37 PM
For those that saw Billy Elliot, you have less than 24 hours to vote in the Whatsonstage.com Theatregoers Choice Awards that ends Tuesday at midnight GMT. You can help assure a victory for Billy Elliot in several categories:
Canada only voted in the Tories on a "temporary" basis. They got 39% of the vote (61% of the country voted for left-leaning parties), and that was only to punish a government that had become complacent (and a little corrupt) after being in power for almost 13 years.
In Canada we have a saying: "We elect the Tories every 20 years to remind us why we have a Liberal government the rest of the time".
The election was only a few days ago, but even now, people

Jeff...that's what my Canadian friends say too. I suppose there is a fine line between hobby and obsesssion, but the clips are important for me precisely becuase I live so far away and can't regularly see the show.
6 TV Appearances in 6 Days Jan 22
2006, 03:06:24 AM
Since last Monday, there have been no less than 6 TV appearances on BBC featuring all 5 of the original Billys (Liam Mover x2, George Maguire, James Lomas, Leon Cooke and Travis Yates), many focussing on Wednesday's nominations for Britain's Laurence Olivier Awards.
Through the dedication and talent of a number of people, I have managed to compile all 6, which was no easy feat since some of the news stories were only shown in certain regions of the country and I myself live in a differ
With today's nominations and the fact they showed an actual scene with Liam and Haydn, I consider this one of the most important Billy videos yet.

Olivier Awards Jan 17

While you all sleep, I'm thrilled by the announcement about all the nominations for this year's Sir Laurence Olivier Awards, including a collective nomination for Best Actor in a Musical for George, James and Liam.
Although BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL and its stars have been nominated and won several awards in the past, this nomination is the most prestigious. Here are the nominations

I have a link (to the password-only videos) and a description of today's BLUE PETER with Liam and Ryan on my multimedia site, but I hope to have a non-password version in the next day or so.

For those not on the fansite, Liam Mower and Ryan Longbottom are scheduled to perform "Expressing Yourself" on BLUE PETER (Monday, January 16, 17:000, BBC1 and CBBC).
Hard for me to comment on the OCR. I've only had it for a day, so I've only listened to it 12 times.
I'm hoping that if I listen enough times, I'll desensitize myself so I can listen without crying (especially during STARS LOOK DOWN and the LETTERS). Until then, I'm not putting it on my Ipod because I can't listen in public.
In any case...off to do family Christmas stuff...Seasons greetings to all.

My OCR Finally Arrived Dec 23
2005, 03:16:31 PM
Well, after a couple calls and e-mails to Amazon UK (considering I placed my order in early November and after everything I've done to promote them as the best shipping method to North America), my box set [b]FINALLY[/b] arrived today.
Turns out it was held up in Canada Customs (who then charged me $10 tax and duty). I was convinced I wouldn't get it until after Christmas.
When I left the post office, I stuck it in the CD player. Not a good idea. As soon as "Stars Look Down",
