I'm here!

Find the Masons - park in their car park if it's empty.

If not, go up the hill a bit (it's steep!) park there.

Or, find the war memorial, park on the main road which goes up the hill there - I always find spaces near the newsagent which is opposite the memorial.

Thanks a lot! You are a star. The Masons people don't mind then...? :)

Depends what time of day it is. It's a tiny car park! But there's plenty of parking on the roads that come off the main high street - there's no restricted parking or anything. So don't worry about finding a space.

If you haven't been before - you may want to drive round the block once anyway and do all the sights in the car - get a feel for it. The Job Centre is unrecognisable now btw - it's flats and has a completely different outside, so it's not so obvious. But everything else is pretty much the same. It takes about 5 minutes to drive around the main circle of locations from the war memorial, up by the dentons, back down to the masons and back up the high street. You'll see where there's parking and find somewhere close to the high street to leave your car.

(anyone else feel free to jump in if you like at this point!)

To answer SBC's question, it's BBC 2's Inside Story series, the episode was called A Change of Sex and it was made in 1979. Here's the blurb

"This documentary charted the long, slow and frequently painful battle fought by 24-year-old transsexual George Roberts to get a sex change on the National Health Service. Director David Person shows not only the difficulties faced by Julia Grant prior to the operation, but also the complications that followed. You'll undoubtedly wince at some points, but also be moved when Julia emerges, post-operation, clearly in pain but overjoyed."

Hope that helps.

Weird! I've never seen it advertised as "The Guides" - but that is the translation of the "Cicerones" anyway. Mad though! Why not keep the proper name? Blummin' Film 4!

Oh dear GOD, that woman should be locked up. She is properly frightening, but you're right - I want to see the whole thing. I feel desperately sorry for her in a way too. I know we all joke about it, but we're not like that... :shock:

Kate, I'm SURE that Shaz, Liz or Sarah have got the video of the entire Tulip rose reed thing. I've certainly seen the whole thing.

I feel uncomfortable about it. Sure, Tulip is extreme to the point of psychosis, but she IS the extreme end of a fandom that most of us on here are a part of. I'm sure a lot of people think I'm a mentalist for making fan-tshirts and getting autographs at stage doors... :?

No matter what walk of life you are from or what you follow or support there is going to that extreme group of people who take it to the Nth degree..

I mean I may joke that Im an extreme and sad Doctor who fan and to a certain degree that may seem true.However there are elements of DW fandom, that treat it with reverence. You know, if something is shit, I and my friends will say its shit and laugh about it, where this extreme element will actually be disgusted that we laugh about it and lambast us for it and actually turn a bit nasty. I think when you start taking something deadly serious that is mean't to be fun, you've lost it!

As long as you can keep in your mind that its a TV show and that you can love it to death, but at the end of the day it is ONLY a TV show. You musn't lose sight of real life.

If you see what I mean!
