The Radio Verulam Film Guide: Friday 18th November 2016

The man that will one day go down in history as 'Simon the Merciless' was in fine fettle this evening. The idea that a sensible film guide was going to be recorded was thrown out of the window as soon as Simon arrived at the studio dressed as an astronaut, and declared it was his new dream to one day look down on the Earth from space. Simon goes through new dreams quite regularly, and they all have varying degrees of achievability. Last week his dream was to eat a yogurt that was not out of date, but the week before he was aiming to take Brentford FC to the World Cup final.

So while Danny manfully tried to talk all about films, Simon just wanted to talk about what he'd learned about being an astronaut. He learned that it's a naturally occurring silicate mineral, and was used extensively in the 19th and 20th centuries during building, until it was discovered to cause cancer. This disturbed Danny somewhat, as it didn't seem to describe Tim Peake. It soon became clear that Simon had been researching asbestos.

Ok, that was a lie, but Simon was in the studio to talk about the UK box office, new releases in the cinema, and his pick of films on TV for the coming week.
