Why have more than 50 dogs leapt to their deaths from this bridge? New book claims the ghost of a suicidal aristocrat is to blame

Overtoun Bridge is an ornate Victorian granite structure in an idyllic spot, arching across the Overtoun Burn in Milton, West Dunbartonshire. It is also the canine equivalent of Beachy Head, the Clifton Suspension Bridge and the doggy Bridge of Sighs all rolled into one. Some people (perhaps not dog lovers) call it Rovers' Leap. But whichever sobriquet you choose, one thing is certain, dogs are not safe here. Over the past 70 years, more than 600 dogs of all ages have leapt onto the jagged rocks 58ft below. More than 50 have died. The rest have been badly injured. Every time, it's the same story. One minute, they seem happy enough — wagging and sniffing, doing what dogs do in the shadow of Overtoun House, a 19th-century Baronial castle awash with turrets and crenellations. The next, they're off, hurling themselves over the 18in-thick granite walls.

WAS SHEEP KILL DONE BY DEVIL WORSHIPPERS

Cellulitis and cellulite are two very different things. One will make you cringe when you put on a bathing suit and the other can kill you. If left unchecked, the skin infection known as cellulitis can spread to your lymph nodes and bloodstream and become life threatening. It can enter your body through a tiny cut from shaving your legs, an insect bite or even from cracks in severely dry skin. Cellulitis can also occur with human or animal bites, so if your child is bitten by another child, be sure to watch the wound carefully. Because it can spread rapidly, you should know what to look for if you suspect you might have an infection and where to get cellulitis help.

What is Cellulitis?
Cellulitis is a non-contagious bacterial skin infection. While the bacteria are present in the world around us, you cannot “catch” it from someone else. Cellulitis is actually an inflammation of the cells in the skin layers. It can enter the body through any break in the skin and is usually caused by the Streptococcus and Staphylococcus germs. The incidence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is increasing and becoming more well known. A very rare complication can result in the deep-tissue infection necrotizing fasciitis, or flesh eating strep. Once the bacteria have entered through a break in the skin, they attack the tissues and can spread rapidly throughout the body.

What are the Symptoms?
Cellulitis usually appears on the lower legs, particularly around the shins and ankles. It can appear on the face, although this is more common in young children and older adults. The skin becomes swollen, red, and warm to the touch and may be accompanied by small red bumps or blisters.READ MORE-http://www.lifescript.com/health/archive/cellulitis_when_to_worry.aspx-WHY THIS POST WELL AT MOMENT MY WIFE HAS THIS ON HER LEFT LEG .OUR DAILY ROUTINE AT THIS TIME OF POST IS PUTTING ON ABSORBENT PADS - 4 SMALL -AND CON FONT STOCKING OVER THEM AND THEN HER REATING HER LEG WITH A TOWEL AND BLANKET UNDER IT .THE PRACTICE NURSE HAS VISITED AND WE AWAIT A MATRON TO ON TUESDAY TO PUT OTHER ACTIONS IN FOR US -IE WHEELCHAIR,HELP WITH DIET AND BREATHING AND OF COURSE THE PRESENT WOUND CARE

Chocolate moose, big chair, an actor’s castle - take an offbeat roadtrip

Now that the sun’s out and summer vacation’s in, it’s the perfect time to pack up the car and get away from the city for a day of sightseeing. Here are some unusual sites to check out. A trip around the globe Start in Salem, N.H., home of America’s Stonehenge (105 Haverhill Road, 603-893-8300, www.stonehengeusa.com).It’s not quite as famous as its British counterpart, but this ancient site is riddled with mysteries too. A collection of man-made chambers probably constructed by indigenous peoples — or, as some contend, the work of pre-Columbian Europeans? You’ll have to decide for yourself. From Salem, continue to Yarmouth, Maine, to see Eartha, the world’s largest revolving and rotating globe. Located in the atrium of the DeLorme Map Store (2 DeLorme Drive, 207-846-7100, www.delorme.com/mapstore) , this three-story model of the planet took two years to build and was unveiled in 1998. On the way back from Yarmouth, the International Cryptozoology Museum (11 Avon St., Portland, www.cryptozoo logymuseum.com) is a worthy stop. The museum, which says it’s the only one of its kind in the world, is an odd place dedicated to animals and monsters that have found a home in folklore. Among the most well-known collection items are alleged yeti hair samples gathered by Sir Edmund Hillary, Bigfoot footprint casts, and the READ MORE -https://www.bostonglobe.com/lifestyle/travel/2015/06/27/take-offbeat-roadtrip/K9tOL2UjgAFyO127DwX9mM/story.htmlOne of the ancient constructions at America's Stonehenge in Salem, NH.

Call for more protection for seagrass meadows

Seagrasses - the underwater plants that act as nursery grounds for young fish - need more protection, say scientists. Monitoring of seagrass meadows off the North Wales coast found areas damaged by the likes of boat moorings, anchors and vehicles crossing at low tide had reduced value to the ecosystem. Fewer species of fish were found where seagrass was degraded, according to research published in PeerJ journal. The seagrass studied was near the village of Porthdinllaen, in Gwynned. Researchers at Swansea University studied areas with both high and low cover over a 28-hectare stretch of sea bed. They also sampled fish living in the underwater meadows of flowering plants. There was a three-fold reduction in the diversity of fish species and invertebrates, such as prawns, shrimp, juvenile cod and juvenile plaice, in areas of low cover, said lead researcher Dr Richard Unsworth. He said that in the areas that had become damaged, there was "a reduction in diversity of the species and in the value of the habitat for juvenile fish". The seagrass is in a special area of conservation, which is a strictly protected site under the European Habitats Directive.READ MORE-http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-33244000

Scientists in South Asia struggle to understand heatwave

Scientists in India and Pakistan say higher temperatures were just one factor behind the recent heatwaves and other causes have yet to be established.
They say low air pressure, high humidity and an unusually absent wind played key roles in making the heat unbearable but they do not know why such conditions prevailed at this time of the year.
The temperature forecast for the heatwave peak in Karachi last week was 43C, according to meteorologists in Pakistan.
The prediction was accurate but other factors made the heat feel unbearable, they say.
More than 1,000 people have died in Pakistan in the worst heatwave in three decades.
In neighbouring India, the official death figure exceeded 2,000, although reported cases were put at more than 3,000.READ MORE-http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-33288311

Drastic action to save endangered tortoise

In a desperate bid to save one of the world's most endangered animals, conservationists are taking the controversial step of defacing the last survivors. Ploughshare tortoises are highly prized for their distinctive gold and black shells and fetch exceptionally high prices on the international black market. Efforts to steal the animals from their native Madagascar are so relentless that there may only be less than 500 left. So the tortoises are now having their shells permanently engraved with a large serial number together with the initials "MG" for Madagascar. The hope is that deliberately making the animals less attractive will reduce or even eliminate demand for them. When the idea was first raised, it faced vigorous opposition from many in the conservation movement, the Madagascar government and also staff within the charity involved, the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust-READ MORE AND SEE VIDEO-http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-33096261

Gregen Jackson AN INTERVIEW

Hi Mark...Sorry it's only coming in so late. I do apologise for my dragging of feet! My computer crashed so had to write this on my smart phone. Feel free to edit if there are any errors. I also did thi while on copious amounts of medication for bronchial infection. Q: What inspired me to become a Professional Speaker/Ancient Alien Theorist? A: As far back as I can remember I have been fascinated by the fairytales, myths and historical stories of the ancient people's and places of the past. I have these incredibly vivid memories of sitting at Minorah Nursery School listening to my teacher - way back when, and being completely immersed in those ancient tales of god's, monsters and men. Those ancient stories struck a cord in me - something deep inside resonated...And that's when it all began, my love and passion for storytelling and Human History. Nursery school was a great place and a fantastic way to seed a young, fertile mind with thoughts and ideas of other world's, and the mysterious origin of mankind.... In 1986 I got to see Halleys Comet - I remember looking up at that clear African night sky and thinking: "How amazing the universe was...how Big, and Strange, and Odd it was...Looking at that Wandering, Celestial traveller streak across the sky, its long silvery tail streched out behind it, all ablaze as it hurtled through the cosmos on its journey around the Sun - and realising for the very first time -(like a virgin), that with all that vastness of space, the countless stars and galaxies - it was impossible for us the human race to be alone...That there was so much more out there - more than what the eye, and the mind could conceive - endless possibilities! In the vast ocean of space and time... That was the beginning - I guess you could say that it was many things over a long period of time, that led me to being a Professional Speaker and Ancient Alien theorist-( which is my hobby). Books I have read, people I have spoken to, events and experiences I have had - they all add up to making you...who you are. It's the sum total of everything you've experienced over the course of your life - including your inherited genetical makeup, that truly makes you a unique individual. But if I had to find the place it all started, it would be those formative years of Nursery school, and seeing Hamlets comet in 1986, that really had an impact - where, and when this long and exciting journey began! Q: What are your aims? A: In today's World of eight billion or so people...its hard to know in which direction to turn -The fast paced hustle and bustle of life - from the high flyers to the low life's - from the beauty queens to the hasbeens...It can get really confusing as to what your aims in this life should be. Humanity is teetering on the brink of disaster - one step forward and we all go over the edge - a spiralling fall into the abyss of biological obscurity! I aim for a brighter and better future for mankind - a future of prosperity and enlightenment for all - a unified approach to the World's problems...We are all in this mess together, and every single one of us is responsible for the way things are! So I guess my aim in this life would have to be helping my fellow man understand that a new way of thinking is needed...If we are to have any hope as the human race, at making our way from the edge of almost certain annihilation. What we face collectively as a people, is something that is unprecedented in the entire history of our existence. It's a Revolution calling...its time to make a change. A new kind of vision is due. It's We the people - What once was, can be no longer be...It's now or never for the human race! Q: What plans do you have for the future? A: I have many plans for the future - They say: Life happens while your making them though! I'm busy writing my first book, so hopefully you'll be able to read it, in the not too distant future. I take each day as it comes. I'm trying to simply enjoy the Ride, and make sense of all this madness that envelopes this World...there's no point in getting your panties in a twist, over the Game that's being played - just play the game, and always remember that it's just a Game! Nothing more, nothing less... I still look up to the stars, and see the endless possibilities out there in Matrix of existence...It gives me hope and still fills me with that childlike wonder - Dreams of life, dreams of hope, and the dream of the endless source( like the warm embrace of the womb) - the future stretches out in front of me, and I embrace the present, so that I can embrace the Source, and the future! There are no plans - Only hopes and dreams.... Gregen.

ART ,MAN ,AND CRYPTOZOOLOGY

https://uk.images.search.yahoo.com/search/images;_ylt=A9mSs2wqCIdVwQkA1cdLBQx.;_ylu=X3oDMTByZmVxM3N0BGNvbG8DaXIyBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzYw--?p=ART+AND+CRYPTOZOOLOGY&fr=chr-greentree_ff-THE FIRST TIME MAN STOOD UP AND COULD WALK AND FORM SPEECH I THINK Cryptozoology WAS BORN.AS HE SAW SABRE TOOTH TIGERS  AN  MAMMOTHS  AND MORE WHAT ABOUT THE ART BIT YOU SAY WELL JUST LOOK AT EARLY CAVE DRAWINGS ,ART IS HOW THE PERSON SEES THE SUBJECT AT THE TIME  AND THE PERSON LOOKING AT THE ART SEES THIER OWN WAY.FOLLOWING IS FROM RESEARCH AND NOT MY WRITING AS NOT GIFTED -   Cryptozoology is the study of animals and other creatures that have not yet been accepted by science as real. In other words, it is monster-hunting. Cryptozoologists look for creatures like sea serpents and the yeti, hoping to gather enough evidence to prove that these beings exist. They also look for more commonplace animals, such as the ivory-billed woodpecker, the giant vampire bat, the inflatable hedgehog and the pygmy elephant. Creatures that are under investigation by cryptozoologists are called cryptids. Although cryptozoology doesn't get much respect from other scientific disiplines, it has had some spectacular success stories, including the pongo (now known as the gorilla), the okapi (an animal that looks like a cross between a giraffe and zebra), and the coelacanth (a prehistoric fish thought to be extinct).
Some cryptids resemble extinct animals, such as this ancient aquatic creature from the documentary 'Walking with Monsters'. Copyright by the creators of the documentary.


          Cryptozoologists are a specialized branch of monster hunters. Since their ultimate goal is to discover either new species of animal or new subspecies, the science of cryptozoology is rooted in biology. The more a creature shows evidence of being supernatural, the less likely it is that cryptozoologists would be interested in it. Not many cryptozoologists investigate the strangest things like ghostly demon cats, Mothman or werewolves. Ghost hunts are left to the paranormal investigators and a few fringe cryptozoologists. On the other hand, there are very few animals, however mythical they may be, that have never stirred the interest of a cryptozoologist. This is because perfectly real animals have often been obscured by so much folklore that they seemed ridiculous.

          Bernard Heuvelmans, the author of the first and most influential book of cryptozoology, On the Track of Unknown Animals, created cryptozoology as a science and separated it from other studies involving anomalies and the paranormal. Earlier writers in the field were more likely to include mythology and folkloric material, and they used the terms "exotic zoology" and "romantic zoology" to describe what they did. Today there are many organizations devoted to cryptozoology, and dozens of books, plus countless individual scientists. Despite this massive amount of interest, most cryptozoologists are underfunded and sink large amounts of their own money into their researches.

          Most of the time, cryptozoologists do not work in the field. The creatures they pursue are so rare and elusive that, even if they do exist, any particular expedition is unlikely to encounter one. It is much easier to collect sightings from witnesses who came across the cryptid by accident. Since most cryptids have remained in the realm of the mythical, the main job of cryptozoologists is not to prove that a certain cryptid exists, but rather to collect and analyze as many sightings as possible in order to determine if the available evidence is strong enough to keep the question open.

If they can make a good case for keeping the question open, they may be able to attract zoologists to the problem, which in turn brings the kind of research funding and manpower that has a real chance of uncovering an undiscovered animal. Alas, as soon as an animal becomes truly respectable, it exits the field of cryptozoology. The real science begins when a cryptid is being more seriously investigated by biologists than by cryptozoologists. Because cryptozoology is by definition a speculative science, cryptozoologists often rub shoulders with folklorists, Forteans, paranormal investigators and creationists, whether they want to or not.     This zoo is roughly divided into three sections. Most cryptozoological beings can be classified as humanoids (something like a human), draconic (it reminds you of a dragon) and animals (everything else). Inside these broad classifications you will find many individual creatures. Each creature has a description that defines what it is and where it is seen, plus a list of resources such as books, websites and documentary films that mention the creature. Most of these resources are firmly rooted in cryptozoology, but some of them approach these creatures from a different viewpoint such as that of folklore and mythology.MY EXPERENCE STARTED WHEN I VISITED CFZ CENTRE AT MURTLE COTTAGE WOOLSERY,DEVON HOME OF MR JON DOWNES WHO AT THE TIME I WAS STARTING TO OFFER MY VOLUNTEER SERVICES I HAD A CHAT WITH HIM IN HIS GARDEN AITH RICHARD FREEMAN WHO BOTH VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT THIER SUJECTS,I HAVE HELPED OUT AT CFZ WEIRDWEEKEND WHICH IS A MIXTURE OF SERIOUS AND FUN ABOUT CRYPTOZOOLOGY SUBJECTS AND MORE.I ALSO DO A BLOG  CALLED STRANGEANIMALS-http://strangeanimalsaghostman.blogspot.co.uk/-WHICH RELATES ALOT TO SUBJECT NAD I TOO HAVE DONE A BIT OF ARTWORK IE CARTOONS SOME EVEN PUBLISHED.

Earth 'entering new extinction phase' - US study

The Earth has entered a new period of extinction, a study by three US universities has concluded, and humans could be among the first casualties. The report, led by the universities of Stanford, Princeton and Berkeley, said vertebrates were disappearing at a rate 114 times faster than normal. The findings echo those in a report published by Duke University last year. One of the new study's authors said: "We are now entering the sixth great mass extinction event." The last such event was 65 million years ago, when dinosaurs were wiped out, in all likelihood by a large meteor hitting Earth. "If it is allowed to continue, life would take many millions of years to recover and our species itself would likely disappear early on," said the lead author, Gerardo Ceballos.-READ MORE-http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-33209548The dried out sea bed of the Soyang River in Chuncheon, Gangwon Province, northeastern South Korea, 16 June 2015

Harry Achilleos Britains most haunted inn AN INTERVIEW


Harry Achilleos
 
Harry Achilleos
Britains most haunted inn
 
 
I attended a ghost hunt and decided to start my own paranormal company.. As I don't do things half heartedly I then bought one of the most haunted inns in the country. Turning the business around into a profitable concern,I'm now able to concentrate on my idea for a reality paranormal show with several TV companies interested.
I'm hoping it will be a breath of fresh air for paranormal TV.
I'm hoping to be competing with ghost hunters, most haunted by next year.

Kurt Logsdon AN INTERVIEW

Hello Mark sorry to get back to you so late. I have had an interest in the paranormal since I was a teen. All aspects of it everything from ghosts,UFOs,and a bit of cryptozoology. My approach to investigating is done in a skeptical manner but still keep an open mind. I know that sounds a bit cliche these days. But when things kick off in the paranormal sense it has to be looked at what can be a rational explanation. I find groups these days go into an investigation looking for ghosts and other phenomenon I go into it trying to debunk the issue first. This I tend to blame on television shows and other media. Instead of using the word paranormal I like to call it unexplained. Being the on a English team out of Liverpool aand being an Anerican I find to be interesting since I take on there version of investigation. I do feel that groups need to share there findings not on fb but in other ways. For example should I catch an Evp I'll send it to my team and other teams to get there take . Growth is key in the paranormal world is needed I also feel there are no experts or we would already have the answers . Cheers Kurt

Alabama rot: What is the dog disease, how common is it – and what are the symptoms?

Dog owners are being warned to be extra vigilant after a number of dogs have been killed by the flesh-eating disease known as Alabama rot. At least 30 dogs in England have been killed in just 18 months as vets struggle to find a cure. Many more pets are feared to have died from Alabama rot, which was first identified in the US in the 1980s. What is Alabama rot? Also known as cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (CRGV), it leads to skin lesions, kidney failure and death but the cause remains unknown It was first believed to usually affect greyhounds but a wide range of breeds have now been affected. Why haven't I heard about it before? The disease has been affecting dogs in the US for the past 30 years, according to research published in the British Medica-READ MORE -http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/mystery-disease-killing-dogs-in-england-what-are-the-symptoms-that-owners-should-look--for-10129274.html

SIR CHRISTOPHER LEE R.I.P

Media captionNick Higham looks back at the life of Sir Christopher Lee, who has died at the age of 93

Despite playing an astonishing variety of roles, Sir Christopher Lee was never quite able to escape the legacy of Count Dracula.

His career spanned seven decades, and he was still appearing on screen well into his eighties, notably in Peter Jackson's blockbusting trilogy, The Lord of the Rings and Tim Burton's Dark Shadows in 2012.

His height - he was 6 ft 4 inches tall - and his deep and powerful voice meant he invariably dominated any scene in which he played. Yet it was a long hard slog through a host of bit parts before he achieved international recognition.

Sir Christopher Lee dies, aged 93In pictures: Star's film careerLive: Reaction and tributes

Christopher Frank Carandini Lee was born on 27 May 1922, in the upmarket Belgravia area of London.

Coincidentally, the year of his birth also saw the first screen appearance of the vampire in F W Murnau's silent classic, Nosferatu.

Lee's father was a Colonel in the Kings Royal Rifle Corps while his mother, Contessa Estelle Marie Carandini di Sarzano, was a noted Edwardian beauty whose image had been painted and sculpted by a number of artists.

His maternal ancestors had been given the right, by Emperor Frederick Barbarossa, to bear the arms of the Holy Roman Empire.

He spent part of his childhood in Switzerland, where his mother had taken him following the breakup of his parents' marriage, but later returned to England where he attended Wellington College in Berkshire.

Long road

In 1939, he volunteered to fight for Finland against the invading Soviet army but he saw no action and returned home to join the Royal Air Force.

Prevented from training as a pilot, due to poor eyesight, he became an intelligence officer, finishing the war as a Flight Lieutenant.

His parents believed he was too foreign looking to succeed as an actor but, thanks to some help from the then Italian Ambassador, his mother's second cousin, he signed a seven-year contract with the Rank Organisation.

Dracula made him an international star

It was to be a long road to stardom; he set out to learn his craft in a string of minor theatre appearances, small film roles and even as a singer where he was able to demonstrate his fine baritone.

He already had 50 film appearances under his belt when, in 1957, he was signed by Hammer Films, which was embarking upon a series of re-makes of classic horror yarns.

His first appearance for Hammer was as the creature in The Curse of Frankenstein opposite Peter Cushing, who was to become a lifelong friend.

The Wicker Man

He followed it up a year later with Dracula, also with Cushing, who appeared as the vampire's arch foe Abraham van Helsing.

Although he only had 13 lines, Lee dominated the film, sweeping majestically down staircases and using his height and aquiline good looks to great effect.

He brought a new dimension to Bram Stoker's creation, playing the Count as a smouldering sexual predator, biting his way through a seemingly endless parade of Hammer's well-endowed starlets.

There followed a string of Hammer roles, including the title roles in Rasputin the Mad Monk, The Mummy and as Sir Henry in Conan Doyle's gothic mystery The Hound of the Baskervilles.

He also starred in The Devil Rides Out, based on Denis Wheatley's novel of black magic, which he persuaded Hammer to make and which many critics consider to be the studio's finest moment.

Sir Christopher tried to move away from Dracula with his role as Bond villain Scaramanga

Lee was to don Dracula's cloak and fangs in six more Hammer outings but, when the producers moved the fiendish Count into a modern setting in Dracula-AD 1972, and The Satanic Rites of Dracula, Lee decided it was time to call it a day.

In 1973, he appeared as the laird of a pagan Scottish community in The Wicker Man, a low budget film that has become a cult favourite.

"It's the best performance I believe I've ever given because the part was specifically written for me by the very distinguished Anthony Schaffer."

Gormenghast

Determined to move away from the horror genre, Lee took the role of Scaramanga in the 1974 James Bond film, The Man with the Golden Gun.

It was the second time he'd been considered to play a Bond villain. 007's creator, Ian Fleming, who was Lee's second cousin, put his name forward for the title role in the first Bond movie Dr No, but the producers had already selected Joseph Wiseman for the part.

The actor starred with Diana Dors and Peter Cushing in Nothing But The Night

In the mid-70's, Lee's workload was so heavy that he had to turn down a number of lucrative roles including that of Dr Loomis in the Halloween series, something that he always regretted.

He also had to refuse the part of the specialist in Ken Russell's film, Tommy, a role that eventually went to Jack Nicholson.

A measure of his popularity across the Atlantic came when he hosted Saturday Night Live, watched by 35 million Americans.

And he proved he was no slouch when it came to comedy, notably in the improbable role of a gay Hell's Angel in the film Serial.

In 2000, he was seen as the loyal yet verbally challenged manservant, Flay, in BBC Television's lavish production of Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast.

He returned to the big screen with a vengeance the following year, portraying Saruman, the evil wizard, in the first of Peter Jackson's epic production of Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Bafta Fellowship

He had always been a great fan of JRR Tolkien's classic novel, which he claimed to have re-read every year, and he once admitted he had harboured a desire for decades to play the part of Gandalf.

The role of Saruman brought him to the attention of a new generation

But he had to accept that, by the time the film was made, he was too old for the sword-fighting and riding which went with the part, which went to Sir Ian McKellen.

It emerged during filming that Lee was the only member of the cast who had actually met Tolkien, having bumped into him, years earlier, in an Oxford pub.

Things, however, did not go smoothly. Peter Jackson cut Saruman's scenes from the final version of the third film, The Return of the King, much to the annoyance of Lee and a large number of die-hard Tolkien fans.

"I really still don't know why," he once said. "I had a seven-minute sequence at the beginning of the third film, which was the final confrontation between Saruman and the members of the Fellowship. It's almost word-for-word Tolkien and the entire sequence was cut."

Nevertheless his performance brought him to a whole new audience whose parents had barely been born when Lee was finding fame with Hammer in the 1950s.

He further broadened his fan base with his appearance as Count Dooku in Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones and the follow-up Revenge of the Sith.

However, in an interview in 2004, he cited a little known art-house film, Jinnah, as his most important work.

"The most important film I made, in terms of its subject and the great responsibility I had as an actor, was a film I did about the founder of Pakistan, called Jinnah," said Sir Christopher.

"It had the best reviews I've ever had in my entire career - as a film and as a performance. But ultimately it was never shown at the cinemas," he said, claiming the subject matter made studios "a bit cautious".

Sir Christopher's Bafta Fellowship was presented by Tim Burton

In 2009, much to the delight of his legion of fans, his career was rewarded with a knighthood in the Queen's birthday honours and, in 2011, he was awarded a Bafta Fellowship, presented by a great admirer, the director, Tim Burton.

His acceptance speech showed that, even at 88, he had not lost his touch. "I'm grateful," he told the audience at the Bafta awards, "that I am not following in the footsteps of the great Stanley Kubrick, whose award was posthumous."

Despite the wide variety of films he made Lee never really managed to shake off the shadow of Count Dracula and always expressed his irritation when interviewers or fans tried to define his career using that one role.

"People sometimes come up to me," he once said, "and they say, 'I've seen all your films, Mr Lee,' and I say, 'Oh no you haven't'."

Dementiaville, episode 1, review: 'putting the focus back on patients'

So much of the current debate around dementia focuses on carers and the financial time bomb facing the NHS, that it can seem as if we lose sight of those actually suffering it. So it was good to see the start of Channel 4’s new three-part series Dementiaville put the focus back on patients, exploring both how they are affected and new treatment methods that ameliorate the sense of anxiety that can accompany the condition.
Last night’s opener followed the work of specialist carers at Poppy Lodge near Leamington Spa, one of a handful of residential care homes in the UK that use a treatment known as the “butterfly household model”. This is a method that acknowledges rather than seeks to correct the fact that many dementia sufferers, faced with crumbling short-term memory, increasingly retreat into unique worlds of their own by returning to significant events in the past as if they were present reality.
There was no attempt to make 91-year-old Les Hadley – who spent part of every day searching the home for his “dear old dad” – understand that his father died 40 years ago. Instead carers engaged with Les’s memories, never-READ MORE-http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/tv-and-radio-reviews/11652158/Dementiaville-episode-1-review.html
