Why I’m proud to be a TOGNew Statesman
We all nodded grimly and understood. But somehow he has made these naff and cheesy choices his own and forced us to be interested in them – simply because he is. His annual commentary at the Eurovision Song Contest is priceless, unmissable. I am sure he is far too professional to drink on air, but he always contrives to sound as if he’s had a few. (“I tell you, I’ve quite taken a fancy to the girl with the fiddle. “) I doubt the Eurovision would have even survived in the UK without Wogan. He brings class to everything he touches… I am sure he is far too professional to drink on air, but he always contrives to sound as if he’s had a few. (“I tell you, I’ve quite taken a fancy to the girl with the fiddle. “) I doubt the Eurovision would have even survived in the UK without Wogan. He brings class to everything he touches. He even gets away with plugging the commendable but dire Children in Need on his show most days by being tongue-in-cheek and gently nagging. He comes close to being some sort of postmodern gay icon with the Eurovision connection, but there is nothing cool or knowing about TOG-love. You love him because he is the real thing in a world full of fakes.

Dutch production company to stage Euro debateIndependent Online
Endemol is discussing prospects for broadcasting the debate, to be held on the eve of the December 17 EU summit, in a handful of countries, Nicolai explained after an informal meeting with his EU counterparts on “Communicating Europe”. The debate will be “a kind of Eurovision” with a central debate with European politicians about the main issues that will be dealt with at the summit and will switch back to national television studios where the audience can vote on specific issues. Turkey’s EU accession would almost certainly be on the agendaThe Netherlands and the European Commission will jointly carry the costs of the debate but it is not clear what the total will be. At the December summit, EU leaders are to decide whether or not to open accession negotiations with Turkey.

UK voters head to the polls for ‘Super Thursday’abc.net.au
WOMAN: The pound is strong, the Euro is rubbish and you’re very good looking as well. He’s a handsome man, this. PHILIP WILLIAMS: You remember Damien Hockney, came second in the Eurovision song contest in 1979 and is now a lead candidate for the UK Independence Party, which is stealing disaffected Tories with its anti-EU message. DAMIAN HOCKNEY, UK INDEPENDENT PARTY: We’re not opposed to Europe, ie. our friends in the different countries but we are totally opposed to the institutions of the EU controlling our country. PHILIP WILLIAMS: Music to Euro-sceptic ears and finding a ready market on the right. DAMIAN HOCKNEY: Yes, in the last week or two we know that we’ve taken a good quarter of Tory voters but it doesn’t just come from Tory voters, conservative voters, it’s coming from a lot of people who have never voted before.

‘Big brother’ to stage EU debateEUPolitix.com
The Dutch production company, Endemol, has been asked to organise a debate around the issues up for discussion during the December EU summit, where the bloc’s leaders will decide whether to begin membership negotiations with Turkey. The broadcast, which will switch between a main studio and national TV studios, will also give audiences the chance to vote on topical EU issues. The debate will be a “kind of Eurovision” explained Dutch European affairs minister, Atzo Nicolaï. EU ministers met in Amsterdam on Tuesday for an informal brainstorming session on how to ‘communicate’ Europe to the masses, organised by the Dutch EU presidency. Faced with decreasing voter turnout at European elections, a series of difficult ratification referendums on a new constitution and an increasingly euro-sceptic populace, EU chiefs are increasingly focusing on the need to ‘communicate Europe’. Previous attempts at explaining ‘Brussels’ and promoting a European identity for European citizens have had little impact, and the informal meeting in Amsterdam was looking to generate some new ideas. Nicolaï said he hoped that the TV debate would be taken up by member state broadcasters and shown across Europe.

Jesus Christ Superstar @ Palace Theatremanchesteronline.co.uk
Charismatic Glenn Carter, who has an amazing vocal range, was terrific in the title role. It’s not surprising – he has played Jesus in London and won awards on Broadway, as well as appearing in the film version. Making his professional stage debut, James Fox, from Fame Academy 2003 and this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, makes a fair stab at the showier role of Judas. There are strong performances from Tim Churchill, as Pontius Pilate, and Emma Dears, as Mary Magdalen, while Mancunian Martin Callaghan, who trained at the Abraham Moss Centre, proved a real crowd-pleaser as Herod. Jesus Christ Superstar is on at the Palace Theatre until Saturday, October 16. Tickets are priced ‘9.
