Yesterday, with temperatures over 35C the whole day and a great deal of the evening, there was no soul in the street or gardens. Staying home, with a fan, was the best way to pass the day with watching long British TV-series, like Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth and Brideshead Revisited with Jeremy Irons. The last one is in eleven parts, the first 10 parts about 50m each and the last part, when Lord Marchmain (Sir Laurence Olivier) returns from Venice to Brideshead Castle to die, lasting 1h 20m. About an odd 10 hours of a delightful insight in English nobility at home, at college, in the very complicated famly relationships. And this all through the eyes of a “common” young man, Charles Ryder (Jeremy Irons).
