I have both of those on DVD (well, my dad does) - I should watch them attentively and entirely soon. Perhaps I'll watch them after I finish Churchill's WWII history volumes. I am on 1 of 12 now, and it has been one hell of a ride so far (Mussolini has just invaded Abyssinia and Neville Chamberlain has succeeded Macdonald as PM of Britain). As for those bushfires: it's actually really stormy and wet where I am, much to my delight. Though, having caught up on them after a busy week, it really is a terrible situation. The smoke from the fires is halfway across the country.
