Since we will be seeing loads of POTO programs this season, why don't we look back into the guys who made it phenomenon. Last year ITV produced special show to honour Andrew Lloyed Webber called 40 Musical Years.
And of course no one else but our Michael Caine is included in the show ( right at the beginning).
Ben Forster, who is a very big star in the UK right now because his Jesus' role in Jesus Christ Superstar, also performed in the show.
Just back on the forum after a couple of weeks away, and was surprised that nobody has mentioned that the British film industry recently lost one of its biggest stars, Richard Attenborough.
He died on 24th August, 5 days short of his 91st birthday. He fell in 2008 when he had a stroke, and had been in a wheelchair ever since. Meanwhile his wife, actress Sheila Sim, developed Senile Dementia. The result was that for the past year and a half they were living together in a nursing home.
Because of my age, the first time I came across Richard Attenborough was in "Jurassic Park". But I have since seen him in some of his earlier films, such as "The Great Escape".
Ironically for somebody who was such a great actor in his own right, his biggest success was actually when he was on the other side of the camera. I am of course talking about when he directed one of the most epic films of all time, "Gandhi".
Ever since I heard the sad news, I have not been able to get the "Jurassic Park Overture" out of my head. So, seeing as this is a figure skating site, perhaps it would be fitting to remember Dickie by watching Tonya's FS from the 1994 Olympics.
Although he is gone, Richard Attenborough's memory will live on forever in all his great films.
My thoughts go out to his family and friends.
