Comment on: Radio Caroline starts shoot
I hope the producers are able to use appropriate original music. Without that the whole project runs the risk of alienating its core audience who have waited a very long time for this. Ersatz pop will not cut it!

Interesting that it is often cheaper to buy a dvd at a supermarket than online. Case in point - Cosmopolis £7 at Sainsburys, £12 at Amazon last week.
Comment on: NT Live: 'It's about getting back to the core of what the theatrical experience is about'
Hopefully the library of content will eventually be opened to home sales rather than just a few screenings. For those of us resident on the other side of the world it is not always possible to get to a cinema for the screenings, so a dvd (or internet streaming) would be great. This would also, reading the article, pass move revenue back to all the participants, something a theatre actor may appreciate.
Yet again a news release that doesn't differentiate between downloading (to keep as a file) or streaming (watching but not keeping as a file). Anecdotally, my experience is that teenagers (especially) stream rather than download. It would be helpful to be sure that the Diffusion/OnePoll survey was really about downloads and not streaming.
It would be really helpful if articles such as this one gave links to the reviews of any of these films.
