They`ve been advertising a programme coming up about a woman who is 117 on the World Service - I expect they`ll cancel it now she`s died.

I'm just a few years late with mentioning this one.

Is there anyone here who was watching Tommy Cooper's last appearance in 1984 when he collapsed and died on stage? I was watching the programme but, at the vital moment, had bent down to pick something up off the floor. When I turned back to the TV, the curtains were being drawn which seemed odd but I had no idea that anything serious had happened.

Did anyone here realise that this wasn't part of the act?

I watched it whilst ironing, I didn't realise until most of the audience stopped laughing when he reached the floor. I think once the curtains were drawn there was a break.

Yes, it went straight to a commercial break and then the final part was shown; top of the bill was I think Donny Osmond.

Goodness, this last year has gone quickly. Here's a programme to mark the first anniversary of Prince's death.

Following on from my link about Prince, I've just been reading this link. I did know that he and his then wife lost their baby in 1996 but it wasn't well publicised. A very sad story.

What sad news, she seemed such a lovely bubbly person.  One of my favourite shows from years gone by.

That's true. I quite liked that Guru's one and only. I'll stick it on the music thread.

Not totally unexpected and he had a good innings so sad but not so sad I would say. I love this photo of him and Richard Kiel taken not long before the latter died.

He certainly did have a good innings. Jaws was a legend as well. This is quite possibly my fave Bond scene of all time.
