I’VE NEVER SEEN STAR WARS BEFORE

 From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I’ve Never Seen Star Wars is a comedy chat show broadcast on BBC Four (2009 episodes) and BBC Two (2011 episodes), first broadcast on 12 March 2009. Created and produced by Bill Dare and hosted by Marcus Brigstocke for the 2009 episodes & Jo Brand for the 2011 special episode, each episode features a celebrity guest trying out new experiences. Based on the original radio version broadcast on BBC Radio 4, the title comes from the fact that Dare has never seen the Star Wars films.

Each episode of I’ve Never Seen Star Wars features a different guest trying things they have never done before, and seeing whether they liked their experiences or not. Some of the experiences come from the show’s special list, which contains a range of different experiences, such as certain books, films, foodstuffs etc. The experiences tend to a mixture of things from the list and things the guest wants to try out themselves. The guest and Brigstocke try out the experience and the guest gives their view on it, as well as giving each experiences a mark out of ten.

SPEED FLATMATING

SpeedFlatmating is the perfect way to find your new flatmate. It’s not about what you share it’s about who you’re sharing it with, so it makes sense to check out the people first. By coming to a SpeedFlatmating event you get the chance to meet loads of potential new flatmates in the time it would take you to travel to and look round a single flat (and discover you wouldn’t want to share with the people there anyway). It really couldn’t be easier!

Visit the site and read some success stories though sometimes those stories are not so successful; click here to read about somebody whose speed flatmating experience turned out to be a nightmare.

You can also visit the flatmates: The BBC’s Learning English online soap opera. It provides various grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation points with each episode. The Flatmates features a young, multicultural cast of characters who are living in the U.K., working or studying and sharing their flat. Very easy for your level!
