Here’s another tape of mixed nuts. FIrst, Nutcracker, which I’ve already recorded and looked at a short while ago. This is a recording from the previous year, and it’s a big improvement on the later recording because the soundtrack doesn’t have the terrible buzz on it.
BBC Genome: BBC Two – 30th December 2000 – 15:25
After this, there’s a trailer for Outdoors on Friday.
Then the recording continues with some nuts and bolts, and an episode of Robot Wars. Love the BBC 2 Logo.
Nice to see and early work-in-progress version of Napoleon Dynamite on one of the teams.
This guy totally thinks presenter Julia Reed fancies him. I 100% guarantee it. He also thinks he’s 100% cooler than all the other team members. He’s 100% wrong. God I miss The Great Egg Race.
BBC Genome: BBC Two – 30th December 2000 – 17:05
After this, a trailer for Two Thousand Acres of Sky.
Then, an episode of The Count of Monte Cristo starring Gerard Depardieu. Sort of an up-market The Flashing Blade, I suppose. Note also it features characters called Danglars and Morcerf. I also note that the cast contains two other people with the surname Depardieu.

There’s another trailer for Outdoors on Friday.
Then, the tape ends during an episode of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. I’ve watched this more than once, and I’ve watched the movie from a few years ago, and yet this random episode (episode five if you’re counting) still makes no sense to me. And my goodness aren’t hotel rooms just a bit depressing. Nothing ever changes.
The tape ends during this programme.
