A Matter of Loaf and Death

I this on TV this evening:

ABC1 promo for A Matter of Loaf and Death

Yes, that is a promo for the new Wallace and Gromit short – A Matter of Loaf and Death – and those who know of the first proper site I made should understand how excited I am.


I had been keeping track of it through the film production blog but I had no idea that it would be aired so soon. I was expecting to have to order a DVD (or download it – but we won’t mention that…) in order to see it. Looking at the production blog now, the last post is from a week ago saying that there was only one day of filming left. I am amazed that it is airing so soon, and before the UK as they won’t get it until Christmas.

But I won’t be able to watch it.

As mentioned previously I am going to OSDC in Sydney, and the conference dinner is on the Wednesday night. I will have to record it. From digital broadcast. Redundantly.

There are two broadcasts (repeated on the Thursday on ABC2) and as well as leaving my desktop running to record it, I should be able to get two other people to record it. Watching it will be the first thing I do on the Sunday. (or maybe as soon as I get back on Saturday night…)

It’s a cracking film…

Wednesday, September 28th, 2005 at 11:36 pm

Although it has been out for a few weeks now it was only tonight that I got around to seeing the new Wallace and Gromit movie: Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. It was cracking. Unfortunately I doubt I will have the time to see it again at a cinema but I will be buying the DVD as soon at it is available…

On a related note it is interesting to see how much the traffic to my Wallace and Gromit site has increased over the past few months even though I haven’t updated it for well over two years now, and that was to say I wasn’t going to update it anymore. Maybe I should update it a bit…
