The Radio Verulam Film Guide: 27th June 2014

On Friday Simon was in the studio looking somewhat frazzled. You see, the previous night it was his shift as 'Maverick Cop' in his local neighbourhood watch. The neighbourhood watch decided that it was more fun to assign different roles to each of the members, such as 'Grizzled Hardnut', 'By-the-books Recruit', 'Family Man' and 'Close-to-Retirement, I'm-to-old-for-this-sh....ip Cop'. They swap roles to keep things interesting and it was Simon's turn for Maverick. As a result he spent the night chasing down youths, dangling potential thieves from windows to elicit information from them and generally playing by his own rules. He sat in his car drinking whiskey from a hip flask and eating Chinese takeaway from the box until 4am, hence the rather withdrawn look that afternoon. He explained that he has drawn the role of 'Wife-whose-husband-keeps-choosing-job-over-her-forcing-her-into-the-arms-of-his-partner' next week, so he's got to go start practising.

Ok, that was a lie, but Simon was in the studio to talk about the UK box office top 10 and his pick of films on free-to-air TV for the coming week.

Chris' Film Club: The Artist

The theme for The Film Club this week is 'black and white' movies, so we start the week with the 2011 silent film (and Oscar fave) The Artist. The winner of 5 Oscars (including for lead actor Jean Dujardin), the film is about two actors with different career trajectories. George is a star whose light is fading, while his protegee (and love interest) Peppy is getting more and more work.

The film is directed by Michel Hazanavicius and is a loving homage to the silent film era. It also stars Berenice Bejo, John Goodman and James Cromwell.

The latest trends are colours for summer - Yellow for happy sunshine - Fuschia Pink for a feminine touch and of course Vibrant Blue which has been in favour since November.




Room colours are generally neutral , Cream or White but you can add colour with Artwork or vases.


Boho-chic is a style of female fashion drawing on various bohemian and hippie influences and is currently popular

@Scarlette Fever Live on Drive Time

Scarlette Fever came into the studio to chat to Danny about everything she has been up to recently and play some music.

Scarlette Fever, who's real name is Karen, was joined by her girlfriend Ezzie and they told Danny they they had recently been travelling before setting up a new business venture.

Ezzie has just set up a personal studio encouraging people to get fit, with Boot Camp starting on Saturday. After being a body builder and fitness model, Ezzie has decided to take a holistic approach to training. They don't believe in 'no pain no gain' mentality, and are taking training back to basics, by basing programs on P.E lessons! One of the games they will be playing on Saturday is 'Hungry Hippos'.

Check out: http://www.starfitlife.com/ for more infomation

Karen explained that she has received some national success, having songs played on Radio 2 and also has had one song reach number two on the Bilboard.

Scarlette Fever's new album which is out in the Autumn, is called Attack of the 6 Foot Woman. She explained that it relates to her experience of the music industry. The glamorous side of people in high heels, and then the slightly seedier under belly of drugs and alcohol. Next she is recording a few new songs for her EP, working alongside Paul Sim and this summer she is headlining at the O2 Academy is Islington on 10th July.

Chris' Film Club: West Side Story

Today I have gone for the undoubted classic West Side Story, a modern and musical telling of Romeo and Juliet. Instead of the Montagues and the Capulets, you have The Jets and The Sharks, two rival New York gangs, one of whom falls for the member of another.

Full of great songs and the recipient of many Oscars, the film stars Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn, Rita Moreno and George Chakiris.

Chris' Film Club: Oliver!

The theme for the Film Club this week is 'musicals', so I've plumped for the 1968 Best Picture Oscar-winner, Oliver! Directed by Carol Reed, it is the all-singing, all-dancing adaptation of Charles Dickens' Victorian novel. It tells the story of the orphan Oliver Twist, who finds fellowship in a gang of child pickpockets, led by Fagin.

The film stars Ron Moody, Mark Lester, Shani Wallis, Jack Wild and Oliver Reed and the trailer can be found below.


Science Correspondent - Sam Rolfe





Sam Rolfe our science correspondent was back for our monthly science update, featuring intriguing stories such as the exciting discovery of a mystery object in the sea on Saturn's moon, Titan, which has been colloquially referred to amongst it's discoverers as a "Magic Island". It is possible that moons and planetary bodies such as Titan could sustain life, which is why the discovery of this "island" is so interesting. In the sea, a mysterious object was visible then disappeared in the space of two weeks. Danny suggested the possibility of a "extra terrestrial craft", sadly this is contrary to the scientists' current theories, which include icebergs and deep sea deposits.

Sam also enlightened us with the discovery of a new drug which can target antibiotic resistant bacteria such as MRSA, so hope is not lost! Unfortunately, a huge loss to the scientific community has been sustained with the death of Stephanie Kwolek, who invented Kevlar. This remarkable woman has made a significant contribution to the international community, saving lives, as Kevlar has many uses including: body armour, car tyres and boots for firefighters. Kwolek was a pioneer for women in the scientific community who is an inspiration to us all and will be sorely missed.

For the sky this month, you may need to stay up later, but put the date 4th July in your diaries where the Earth is furthest away from the sun during its orbit, so make sure to look for Ursa Major, Hercules , Virgo and Lyra and Cygnus.

We'd like to thank Sam for being with us for what was a educational and enjoyable experience and if you missed anything, be sure to catch up with our listen again service.

Chris' Film Club: Zoolander

A modern comedy classic, Ben Stiller directs and stars as Derek Zoolander, a male model who is brainwashed into killing a world leader. The film also stars Owen Wilson (as Zoolander's model rival), Jerry Stiller, Christine Taylor and Will Ferrell.

The film is full of great lines, star cameos and big laughs. A must-see for comedy fans.

Chris' Film Club: Rocky Balboa

Now, you may be thinking 'what's this? The 6th Rocky film?! How can this make it into any list that is meant to be about classic films?' and you might have a point. Alternatively you might be thinking 'I'm hungry' or 'I'm tired'. If that is the case then you should eat or sleep.

However, I have picked Rocky Balboa as it fits our theme (Slyvester Stallone acts and directs) and is actually not a bad film. One might actually call it 'good'. It stars Stallone as the now rather aged Rocky, who owns a restaurant and regales the patrons with old boxing stories. He comes out of retirement to face the current world champion in an exhibition match. The plot is secondary to the boxing action and it is a well put together film. Worth a try.

Chris' Film Club: Open Range

A film that was a contender for the theme of 'westerns', Open Range gets included in the Film Club this week because it is directed by, and stars, Kevin Costner.

The film is about a group of cattlemen who get involved in a feud with a local land baron (played by Michael Gambon) which escalates into violence. While the plot is fairly standard for a western, it is beautiful to look at and well acted, with a great cast that also includes Robert Duvall and Annette Bening.

Bake It Easy with Lucy from @heavenacupcake - Carrot Cupcakes


Tonight in the studio we were joined by the award winning Lucy from Heaven is a Cupcake. She discussed her love of baking, her specialities and how to make Carrot Cupcakes.

Lucy claims that these cupcakes contribute to one of you five a day! Giving us even more reason to make a batch as a health treat. Lucy uses oil rather than butter to make these cupcakes and enjoys putting a cream cheese icing on top for a tangy twist.

Lisa Pearson - Lifestyle Correspondent



Lisa Pearson, our lifestyle correspondent, was our guest tonight on West Herts Drive Time to share with us
her extensive knowledge about feeling unappreciated. After an enlightening talk about anger management last month, we were delighted to have her back to speak to us and we found her insight both valuable and applicable to our lives.



Lisa described how if you feel unappreciated, the most crucial step is to tell someone by explaining your opinion; a simple, honest but often disregarded solution. She also explained that without confidence, we cannot be appreciated and if we get over the idea that this is a display of arrogance, those around us will become more aware of our contribution and in turn appreciate us more. Many of us don't realise we are appreciated due to lacking in confidence and Danny suggested that this sense of modesty is due to our hardwired "British nature" of ignoring compliments and focusing on minor critiques. Sometimes the mammoth tasks we undertake for others may not be needed or wanted by the recipients, instead it's about being careful about what you do and always check you're doing the right thing. Instead try to avoid a grumpy disposition and sense of matyrdom after striving to help someone seemingly indifferent to your efforts, instead always try to be gracious.

Chris' Film Club: Million Dollar Baby

This week I have chosen the theme of 'Actor-Directors'. By that I mean films in which the director is also one of the stars of the film. To start the week off I have chosen Clint Eastwood's brilliant drama Million Dollar Baby. The film tells the story of a young waitress (Hilary Swank) who gets into boxing. She eventually impresses a grizzled old boxing coach (Eastwood) who takes her under his wing.

The film also stars Morgan Freeman and all three of it's stars won Oscars (Eastwood for directing; Freeman and Swank for acting). Don't be put off by the boxing theme, it is not a sports film, but a brilliantly constructed and acted drama.

St Albans and Hertfordshire Architectural and Archaeological Society

This afternoon Anne Ware and John Mein from St Albans and Hertfordshire Architectural and Archaeological Society came into Drive Time  to talk about their upcoming conference about St Albans role during World War One.

The SAHAAS is one of Radio Verulum's Community Partners, and is a registered charity that was set up in 1845 to promote an interest in local history.


Whilst researching for the conference, the society found out some very interesting and somewhat unusual facts about the city.

Anne explained that in 1914, the city was home to 10 hat manufactures.

These specialised particularly in ladies bonnets and men's straw boaters.

In 1915 they were commissioned to make straw hats for troops in India. They made 10,000 of these in a mere 2 weeks!

The army liked their work so much, that they were asked to make cork helmets. The companies hired a cork helmet expert and made a revolutionary assembly line, the first of its kind.

This production line, run by women, was responsible for making 750,000 helmets during the war.

John went on to explain about the guest speakers and their special subjects for the conference.
Dr John Bourne will be giving the first keynote [presentation focusing on the state of the country leading up to the war.

The second keynote presentation is from German lecturer Dr Daniel Nagel, Assistant Lecturer of the University of Mannheim which is St Albans twinned city in Germany. His lecture will focus on the Home Front during the First World War in Germany.

Travel Correspondant Andy Jarosz @andyjarosz talks about a domestic holiday in the UK

On the show today we were joined by our travel correspondant Andy Jarosz, discussing the pro's and con's of having a domestic holiday in the UK.

Andy suggested that around this time of year we should all be looking for a holiday closer to home. Enjoying less travel fuss and no language barriers. He also went on to say that around this time of year the weather in the UK can be lovely, perfect for walks or typical English pub lunches - although warns us to make sure we check café closing times as some close between 2 and 3pm.

Andy also suggested that we should take day trips in our local areas and explore local walking paths and cafes. He always suggested that we make sure we eat healthily on holiday, refreshing our palettes with some fruit and veg.

Consumer Advice





Elizabeth Crampton from St Albans Citizens Advice Bureau was our guest tonight, covering the following topics.
Lottery scams
Lottery, sweepstake or prize draw fraud happens after fraudsters contact you to tell you you’ve won a large sum of money in an international lottery, sweepstake or other prize draw.
You’re told via email or letter that you have won a large amount of money on an overseas or online lottery. Spanish, Canadian and Australian lotteries are among the most common.

So that you can process the payment of your winnings, it asks you to contact someone who claims to be an official at the lottery company. You are warned to keep your good luck a secret and, if you don’t respond quickly, you won’t be able to claim your winnings.

However, either the lottery doesn’t exist or you’ve been contacted by fraudsters misusing the name of a genuine lottery. But you can be sure there is no prize money for you to win.

What should you do if you’re a victim of lottery fraud?
Contact Action Fraud
If you have responded to the email/letter, break off all contact with the fraudsters at once.
If you have given the fraudsters your bank account details, alert your bank immediately.
Be aware that you’re now likely to be a target for other frauds. Fraudsters often share details about people they have successfully targeted or approached, using different identities to commit further frauds.
People who have already fallen victim to fraudsters are particularly vulnerable to the fraud recovery fraud. This is when fraudsters contact people who have already lost money through fraud and claim to be law enforcement officers or lawyers. They advise the victim that they can help them recover their lost money – but request a fee.

Car Hire on holiday
Hiring a car anywhere abroad should be a relatively easy and transparent process, but very often it is not and is something that can cost you dear when you get home.

The array of insurances and confusions of conditions of hire can make it virtually impossible to make an informed judgement – there's a chance that you either take out unnecessary insurance or face additional and often considerable costs later.

If you do your research online before you go you will be able to work out the total cost, including any fixed or optional extra charges, and compare prices and terms & conditions between different hirers. There's a good chance that the cost of hire will be lower too if booked in advance.

Chris' Film Club: The Outlaw Josey Wales

We started this week of westerns with a film starring the cowboy legend John Wayne and we're ending the week with the man that took his place as the actor who came to define the westerns genre: Clint Eastwood.

Eastwood is Josey Wales, a man whose wife is murdered by Unionists and he seeks revenge by joining the Confederacy. His squad are murdered in cold blood and he goes on the run with a ragtag band of other fugitives. Eastwood brought new life to the western when it seemed to be flagging, and Josey Wales is a great example of that new life.

Funny Woman Vicky Arlidge on Drive Time with Danny Smith

Today Vicky Arlidge, Mother of two, turned comedian at 43, came in to catch up with Danny about her flourishing career.

Vicky wrote her first comedy song 2 years ago just to get some things that were bothering her off her chest.

She loaded onto YouTube, and it unexpectedly went viral, receiving hits and messaged from all over the world.


Last year Vicky performed at the Edinburgh festival for the first time, and was even nominated for Funny Woman Best Show 2013.

She explained that the Edinburgh Festival is the biggest, creative, festival in the world, with an amazing atmosphere. The festival runs for three weeks from the beginning of August, and Vicky will be there from the 9th-26th August.

This year Vicky will be performing at Glastonbury for the fist time alongside Dolly Parton and Metalica. Although Vicky is looking forward to the experience, she explained that she whimped out of camping, instead opting for a Motor Home rather than sharing toilets with 4000 festival goers.

A little bit closer to home, Vicky is performing at the Maltings Theatre on the 13th and 14th June. If you book your tickets before Thursday you will get a free glass of prosecco.

The following week, 21st June, Vicky will be performing at the Leicester Square Theatre.

The Drivetime Sessions with Without Reason

This afternoon we were joined in the studio by the band Without Reason. They played three of their own songs for us: 'Cast in Iron', 'Track 8' and 'We Fell Through', as well as a cover of the Skunk Anansie song 'Weak'














To find out more about the band and any of their upcoming gigs, head on over to their Facebook page or Twitter. Their website can also be found at http://withoutreason.net/. If you missed the session, go to the Radio Verulam website's Listen Again service.

Chris' Film Club: Blazing Saddles

Continuing onwards though this week's theme of 'westerns' we arrive at Blazing Saddles, Mel Brooks' classic western comedy. Starring Cleavon Little as a small towns' first black sheriff and Gene Wilder as his sidekick 'The Waco Kid', Brooks' comedy makes fun of the western genre and the time period as well, and reminds you what comedic talents Brooks and Wilder are at times.

Tuesday, 3 June 2014

Chris' Film Club: Django Unchained

Continuing the theme of 'westerns' for the film club this week I have picked Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino's most recent film. The film is about a freed slave (played by Jamie Foxx) who is taught to be a bounty hunter by Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz in an Oscar-winning role). Together they go to free Django's wife (Kerry Washington) from the clutches of evil plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo Di Caprio).

The film is bold, bloody and often hilarious. It also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins and Don Johnson.

Martin Finney Does Jobs In June

On todays show we had Martin Finney are garden correspondant.
He was dicussing jobs to be done in june, when it comes to the garden.

His first piece of advice was to not get too enthusastic, June is the month to let your plants grow, keep your grass green and growing. Don't set the lawn mower on as high a setting to gain grass success!

Though your grass may seem long and untidy,  there are some rewards for being persistant. If you allow your grass to grow, plant seeds and water daily, you will reap the rewards of fresh fruit and vegatables.

Martin's top tip was to add fertiliser to prolong life - espescially for Roses.

Chris' Film Club: The Searchers

The theme for the film club this week is 'Westerns', so we start the week with not only one of the greatest Westerns, but arguably one of the greatest films of all time.

John Wayne is Ethan Edwards, a complex and brutal man who goes off in search of his niece (Natalie Wood) after she is taken by Native Americans. The film takes place over many years and also stars Jeffrey Hunter and Henry Brandon. Directed by John Ford, it is epic, beautiful and grand in so many ways.
