Genius Dad Ends His Daughters' Tantrums By Telling Them They Have To Take Turns Crying


A father of three has a trick up his sleeve to stop his daughters from crying and whining.

The father recorded the sweet moment both his daughters calm down after throwing hysterical tantrums after they refuse to take "their turn to cry" during their holiday in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on April 25.

The trick works every time for the dad of a one, three and six-year-old saying: "I figured it out with one of my daughters a long time ago. Works every single time."

Competition: Win Beecham House on DVD

Beecham House is out on DVD on July 22nd.

And to celebrate we have a great competition for you and 3 copies on DVD to give away.

Synopsis
LOVE, HONOUR, secrets, betrayal…welcome to Beecham House. Bend it like Beckham director Gurinder Chadha pens this lavish ‘Dehli Downton’ drama, set amongst British nobles in India during the cusp of the 19th century. Airing this Summer on ITV, the stunning six-part series is set to arrive on DVD and digital from Acorn Media International.

Tom Bateman (Vanity Fair, Murder on the Orient Express) stars as John Beecham, an Englishman who resigned from the East India Company to make an honourable life for himself in Delhi, but he leaves Calcutta under a shadow. How long can he survive before his secret past is revealed, and what does this past mean for his descendants in generations to come?

John’s widowed mother Henrietta (Lesley Nicol – Downton Abbey) finds life in India a difficult adjustment, but is helped by her spirited companion Violet (Bessie Carter – Howard’s End), who has feelings for John. Australian-Indian actress Pallavi Sharma (Lion) plays the regal Chandrika Kumari, a princess seeking refuge at Beecham House, who clashes with Henrietta over the running of the household.

The staff also have a part to play: the loyal head of servants Baadal (Viveik Kalra – Blinded by the Light) would do anything for naïve nursemaid Chanchal (Shriya Pilgaonkar - Fan), who accompanies John to look after his mysterious olive-skinned baby. But who is the child’s mother, and what exactly is John hiding?

This sumptuous period drama provides a new perspective of British rule in India, from the mind of the iconic British-Indian filmmaker behind Bhaji on the Beach, Viceroy’s House and the upcoming Blinded by the Light.

Fresh from the success of What We Do In The Shadows, Matt Berry makes a welcome return to our screens in Year of the Rabbit,  a brand new original comedy for Channel 4 set in Victorian London.

This hilarious six-part series is set to turn the detective genre on its head with a brand new crime fighting trio, that sees Matt Berry’s (Toast of London, The IT Crowd), Detective Inspector Rabbit, teaming up with Freddie Fox (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Cucumber) and Susan Wokoma (Chewing Gum, Crazyhead).

Competition: Win Chernobyl - (2019 Sky Atlantic Drama)


Chernobyl is out on DVD & Blu-ray on July 15th.

And to celebrate we have a great competition for you and 2 copies on DVD to give away.

Synopsis
‘ENTHRALLING, QUIETLY spectacular, meticulously researched’ (The Observer) Sky Original drama Chernobyl explores the truth surrounding the disastrous nuclear power plant explosion in 1986 – a story of incredible heroism and sacrifice, but also shocking lies and conspiracy.

The result of extensive research, Chernobyl seeks to tell the stories of those directly involved in causing the catastrophe, and those affected by the nuclear fallout felt across the world. Jared Harris (Mad Men, The Crown) stars as Valery Legasov, a nuclear physicist who is one of the first people to grasp the scope of the nuclear disaster. Ulana Khomyuk (Emily Watson – Apple Tree Yard, The Theory of Everything) is a scientist committed to getting to the bottom of the cause, while Lyudmilla Ignatenko (Jessie Buckley – Wild Rose, Beast) is the wife of a firefighter who was first on the scene. Stellan Skarsgård (Mamma Mia, Thor) plays Soviet Deputy Prime Minister Boris Shchergina, leading the government commission from a safe distance.

Directed by The Walking Dead’s Jonas Renck, the series is committed to a realism that refuses to shy away from the horrors, both physical and psychological, inflicted upon the victims of this uniquely horrifying event. A deeply moving story about how individuals act when faced with something inexplicable, this drama seeks to honour the spirit of those who helped stop the devastation from spreading even further.

Investigating the lengths to which governments will go to cover up atrocities and suppress the spread of information, Chernobyl also acts as a timely warning: the truth will out.

Animals on drugs!


Black lemurs get high off millipedes in Madagascar. The lemurs bite the millipedes gently to provoke the millipedes to spray out defensive chemicals including cyanide. The lemurs crave these chemicals and rub the secretions all over their body to act as an insect repellant but as a consequence the lemurs enter a blissful state.

First Class Bus Stop by George Barratt-Jones


We all know it, taking the bus isn't the most fun thing to do.
So why can't it be more luxurious and fun? Why can't the start of the day be more fun?

So I created the "First Class Bus Stop". Serving people coffee, tea and a home made cookies. While cafe music is being played in the background.

People can come to have a chat. Get to know the people in their neighbourhood.

Turning to otherwise boring time waiting for the bus. Into something hopefully more enjoyable.

This project was all about creating more fun. Making people 10% happier.
