IT is being hailed as the British Game Of Thrones – an epic tale of the birth of our nation involving warring Celtic tribes, mystic Druids and invading Roman legions.Sky Atlantic drama Britannia stars David Morrissey as a Roman general, Zoe Wanamaker as a Celtic queen and Mackenzie Crook as a powerful Druid.The nine-part story, set in 43AD, nearly 100 years after Julius Caesar first tried and failed to conquer Britain, begins with the Roman army’s new attempt to take our island.Written by renowned playwright Jez Butterworth, it combines fact and fiction, with a modern script and thumping punk and folk soundtrack.But how much is fact and how much is fiction?Well, it turns out that, life 2,000 years ago really was not that different to now.Early Brits, it turns out, loved beer, farting and a good fight as well as bling and tattoos — that that involved warriors colouring their bodies blue with dye made from woad plants.The story begins with General Aulus Plautius, played … [Read more...] about Sky Atlantic drama Britannia aims to be the new Game of Thrones — but with extra boozing and brawling set in Roman Britain
WE are all experts at something.It might be the Premier League, it might be necking a pint in six seconds, and for some, it might be telly’s Game Of Thrones, though I’m not one of them.Apparently it has something to do with Seven Kingdoms and an Iron Throne and magic and dragons.And there’s a lot of shagging (hang on, maybe I should watch it).But what I do know is this: the film set in Morocco — “welcome to Mollywood” — is an awesome place to visit.Others will know all about astronomy and the stars and planets above us. Me neither.But there’s an app that identifies constellations in the dark-as-oil night sky.It’s a great way to distract yourself from the fear of kidnap when camping in the Sahara desert.My specialist subject, which is enough to win any pub argument, is motors and today’s topic is the new BMW X3.The X3 Mk3, if you like.

THE direwolves have been a key part of Game of Thrones since the first episode when they were adopted by the Stark children.It's been a long time since we've seen some of them so here's a reminder- which DOES contain spoilers for Game of Thrones season 7.Direwolves are enormous, hugely powerful wolves.They are the sigil of House Stark and strongly associated with the north - though until the family found a litter in the first episode of season 1 none had ever been seen south of The Wall.They are played on Game of Thrones by wolf-like dogs such as Siberian huskies.The producers then use CGI to make the dogs look much bigger - or sometimes they will not use dogs at all and will CGI the entire direwolf into the shot.The Stark children adopted a litter of direwolf puppies in the first episode of Game of Thrones, when they found a wolf dying after being hurt by a wild boar.All five Starks and Ned Stark's illegitimate son* Jon Snow were given a wolf to look after as their own.

GAME of Thrones star Aidan Gillen hates fans calling him by his real name — and prefers his on-screen aliases.The Dublin actor, 49, got his big break in groundbreaking TV series Queer as Folk and initially hated the attention it brought him.But he came to love being recognised after an esteemed career in which he has played Tommy Carcetti on The Wire, John Boy in Love/Hate, former Taoiseach Charlie Haughey in Charlie and Little Finger in Game of Thrones.He explained: “One of the reasons I left London after Queer as Folk was because I wasn’t that comfortable with the attention or being called by a character name on the street.“Now I quite like it, and I’d rather be called by a character name than my real name — I’d rather have that buffer in there, and it means they believe what you’ve done.”The TV star is getting ready to pull back on the cloak of Little Finger, aka Lord Petyr Baelish, when Game of Thrones returns to our … [Read more...] about Irish Game of Thrones star Aidan Gillen hates fans calling him by his real name — and prefers his on-screen aliases
STRICTLY Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood has admitted he likes the shocking rape scenes in Games of Thrones - sparking calls for him to be sacked.The popular TV star's comments during an appearance on 8 Out of 10 Cats on Tuesday night have been blasted by a leading abuse charity.When asked if he watched the HBO show Games Of Thrones, he said: "No, I persevered for the first series until the dragon came on and that's when I switched off."I liked all the sex scenes and the rape and I liked the cleavers through the skulls and I liked all of that, but I got very bored in the end."His comment clearly shocked fellow panel members – including an very unimpressed-looking Katherine Ryan.Horrified actress Aisling Bea questioned what exactly it was that bored him, asking: "When they weren't raping anyone?

VERY Bonfire Night for the past 400 years we have been burning effigies of the wrong man.Nobleman Robert Catesby was the real brains of the Gunpowder Plot to blow up Parliament — Fawkes was just the fall Guy.Now, Catesby’s direct descendant, Game Of Thrones hunk Kit Harington, is set to play his conspiring relative in new BBC1 drama Gunpowder.The three-parter will show how Catesby led the Catholic conspiracy to assassinate England’s protestant King James I on November 5, 1605.Kit, best known to GoT fans as Jon Snow, hopes it will explode the myth that his ancestor and his fellow plotters were just madmen.The 30-year-old said: “It’s maybe one of the first instances of ideological terrorism in Western Europe by a group of young men disenfranchised and pushed to the margins.“They were stamped on because they were Catholic.”Gunpowder is set amid the violent persecution of Catholics in the early 1600s and is perhaps not one to watch with … [Read more...] about Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington’s ancestor was the REAL villain in Gunpowder Plot and now he’s playing him on the small screen

DW: When was it clear to you that you wanted to become a film composer? Ramin Djawadi: Very early on. I began making music at the age of four. According to my mother, once I just sat down at the piano and played back a tune by ear. My parents were watching and said to each other, maybe we should give him music lessons. First, I started to play the organ. I did that until I was 11. From the age of 11 to 13, I gave up music entirely. And then at 13 I picked up the guitar, and after one-and-a-half years I started practicing intensively. I began playing in rock bands, and it was there that I discovered that the music I liked to write was always instrumental. The film that most influenced me was the Western, "The Magnificent Seven." As a child, I was a huge fan of Westerns. And for me, this movie - in addition to "Star Wars," with its music by John Williams - was what made me realize just how much dramatic music can support a movie. After high school, I moved to the US and studied music … [Read more...] about No flutes allowed: Composer Ramin Djawadi on the music of ‘Game of Thrones’
