Hi all, does anyone have any ideas about local media in and around the villages of Pontivy. We live nr Le Croisty and feel that our intended busines would be good for both ex-pats and locals, but are unsure about local english / french media that is read! A card in local shops is good I know, but has anyone any other ideas at all? Thanks in advance.

hello we are travelling out to our cottage in Koh Koet near Locmine this week and are considering taking a portable TV/DVD with us, firstly will it work,and secondly do u need a TV licence as you would in the UK.

My TV (ex-UK many years ago) has packed up.  I thought I was looking to replace it with a PAL SECAM one, to receive French terrestrial as well as sky digital.  Having explained this to the expert in our local Carrefour,  I understand we need a PAL-I SECAM version in order to view decoded encrypted subscription channels (sky movies and so on).  This only seemed to be feasible with the most expensive TV in his shop!  Does anyone know anything about this, or does anyone have a supermarket own-brand TV (Orion, Brandt, etc) which can show Sky subscription channels OK?  Have also heard of MESECAM - is this anything to do with it?

We would like to hear from all you people if "Les Palmiers" deserves the, as yet "soft" verbal attacks he receives on this site. We feel that Les should be made President of an independant Brittany for English speaking people. What do you think? GeGe

I am keen to see if there are any other like minded people out here in Brittany (Plemet/Loudeac 22 area) who would like to get together to form a quartet/group. I am a violinist, whose background includes orchestras, quartets, pit bands (musicals and shows) and weddings. If you are interested do send me an email : janeschofield2002@yahoo.co.uk Janey

Sometimes I hanker after going to see a film in English at a cinema, Thanks to AngloINFO, I've found that fairly locally, there are films in English available. The big screen really does make all the difference. The only problem is, I feel odd going alone - does anyone, male or female or a family or group feel like going to see a film and maybe a beer? Lanester would be my preferred place to go, apparently this week the film is Raising Victor Vargus , which looks interesting. Anyone out there interested?

Couldn't help noticing on the AngloINFO VO Movie Guide that the cinema in Lanester is showing 24 Hour Party People. I was lucky enough to see this at the Cannes Festival last year and I have to say that, if you have any interest at all in the "Madchester" scene from punk through to the Hacienda days, via Joy Division and the Happy Mondays, then it's a great film to watch (with a savage turn by Steve Coogan as Tony Wilson). If you have no interest at all in the subject matter it is probably less good... **************Mike
