WILDWATERFILM.COM Tenko (TV series) Tenko is a television drama, co-produced by the BBC and the ABC. A total of thirty episodes were produced over three series between 1981 and 1984, followed by a one-off special (which was twice the length of the other episodes), Tenko Reunion, in 1985. The series dealt with the experiences of British, Australian and Dutch women who were captured after the fall of Singapore in February 1942, after the Japanese invasion, and held in a Japanese internment camp on a Japanese-occupied island between Singapore and Australia. Tenko was created by Lavinia Warner after she had conducted research into the internment of nursing corps officer Margot Turner (1910–1993) for an edition of This Is Your Life and was convinced of the dramatic potential of the stories of women prisoners of the Japanese.[1] Aside from the first two episodes, set in Singapore, which were written by Paul Wheeler, the series was written by Jill Hyem and Anne Valery.

Best Historical Movies - a list by Ragabzidann Breakfast Interrupted | Man Made DIY | Crafts for Men | Keywords: art, kitchen, breakfast, video Nothing like enjoying a delicious meal just before it all goes crazy.

It's almost as if there was a mystical force pulling the table from above - and by "mystical," I mean a hydraulic pump going crazy. BSS | Breakfast Interrupted from Bruton Stroube Studios on Vimeo. Shot at 1000fps, each second of this short film captures in detail the way food behaves when it's not handled with care. So jealous of these guys! The video was actually created two years ago, so you may have seen it make the rounds already, but it's new to me, and I just couldn't help but share.

What order to watch the Star Wars movies is best? Well, that depends... | GamesRadar+ With Star Wars: The Last Jedi now in theaters, there's never been a better time to binge-watch the epic space saga created by George Lucas long ago in a galaxy... well, this galaxy, actually.

Well dear reader, we've collected some of the most popular (and most unorthodox) below so you can weigh the pros and cons and decide for yourself. Take a look below and see which is right for you.
