There are some clever TV adverts around. We don’t see many these days because we no longer have tv, other than sky news and a couple of programmes that you would have to be extremely bored to even think about watching. This is due to the main UK satellite being realigned earlier this year with a narrower beam that excludes southern Spain. This has not really proved to be a great problem for us. Before we moved into our house we spent ages working out how we would arrange furniture and where we would place the TV. We realised that we were arranging our lives around a box on the wall and decided to go without, and continued to do so for three years before buckling.
There are a few programmes I love and have missed – The Good Wife, Homeland, newly discovered Breaking Bad from the USA, and homegrown Strictly Come Dancing and Great British Bake Off. But now we have a new internet provider with a decent signal I may be able to catch up on these shows.
However, one theme tune that always grabs my attention is the song ‘Friends’ by Adam Buxton and when I hear it I just have to stop what I’m doing and gawp at the box for this advertisement (Ad for tv advertising!). I love it and want to share it with those of you who have not had the delight of seeing it thus far. I could talk about it at great length, but there is no need – just watch it and I am sure you will love it as much as I do. Enjoy!

Many thanks to Jan Powell whose comment below led me to include this TV advert also staring the magical Harvey
