Any Anglophile worth his or her salt is already champing at the bit over the upcoming Royal Wedding on May 19. When Prince Harry and Megan Markle tie the knot their nuptials will be broadcast around the world and PBS is inviting you to tune in.
Starting Monday, May 14, check out ROYAL WEDDING WATCH, a five-part series of special programming designed to bring you up to speed on the high profile nuptials. Then, on Saturday, May 19, the big event will be broadcast live from St. George’s Chapel at Windsor.
So if your invitation gets lost in the mail, ROYAL WEDDING WATCH airs weeknights at 10 (10:30 on Friday the 18th) on the Explorer Channel the week of May 14. The ROYAL WEDDING airs live May 19 on the Explorer Channel.
“And it wasn’t until enough men had sailed to enough places that they realized that the faithful compass was lying. There was True North – the north of the Pole Star – and there was the Magnetic North – and, depending where on Earth you were, that varied. And, for a great mercantile empire like England, that was very bad news.” – James Burke, Connections (episode two, “Death in the Morning”)
A little treat for the Doctor Who fans this week as I give you a piece of merchandise from the beloved sci fi series. It’s a Dalek full of bath jelly. Basically, just a nice souvenir a pal brought me from a recent trip to England.
As a longtime Whovian, I have amassed (and sold) more Doctor Who miscellany than most people will collect in a lifetime – everything from books and fan magazines to place mats and autographed photos. This is one of the few items remaining.
