The Great British Television Map Plots All of Your Favorite Shows From the U.K.

But could you pick it out on a map? Unlikely. While settling in to an episode of Foyle’s War, designer Tim Ritz’s wife asked him to show her where, exactly, Hastings was. He drew a map of the U.K. on a sticky note, with a dot on the East Sussex village. But he didn’t stop there. “All of our friends and families have been getting into British TV more and more over the years,” he tells CityLab. The Great British Television Map (h/t: The Great British Bake Off) attempts to remedy that. “Layer upon layer of cultural understandings underpin the television we watch,” Ritz says. In compiling the map, Ritz says he expected more shows to follow the Downton Abbey strategy of setting the show in one location (Yorkshire, in northern England) and filming it in another (Highclere Castle, in West Berkshire, where it’s sunnier).

In the mid-1970s, O'Quinn and high school friend David Houston talked about creating a magazine that would cover science fiction films and television programs. O'Quinn came up the idea of publishing a one-time only magazine on the Star Trek phenomenon. To keep costs down, Starlog was initially a quarterly magazine with the first issue being published on August 1976.

One of the magazine's milestones was its 100th issue, published on November 1985 and featured who they thought were the 100 most important people in science fiction. It published its 30th Anniversary issue in 2006. Browse by Subject / Keywords. Easter Goes Goth!

Easter Goes Goth!

There's really nothing of relevance for an adult on Easter other than making colored eggs for children and egg hunts. Who would have thought that there would be a goth Easter Bunny that made an appearance as the villain in the 1971 claymation classic, Here Comes Peter Cottontail? This Goth Easter Bunny goes by January Q. Irontail and was voiced by Vincent Price, which automatically gets goth street cred. Irontail wears a black over coat and black vest and literally has a spiked iron tail that was a result of a child accidentally running over his original one.

That’s where I fell in love with astronomy, and now I’m an astrophysicist at Caltech, so I guess you could say, uh, Raj is my name and stars are my game. And rhyming is also my game. So, uh, two games. Uh, anyway, that, that’s enough about me.
