Everyone Loves Buster

British funnyman Paul Merton has started a series on BBC4, one of the BBC's new digital channels celebrating the Silent comedians. The first, highlighting Buster Keaton, was reviewed in The Guardian Guide by Charlie Brooker - it's good to see appreciation of the great man.

Still to come are Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, and Hsrold Lloyd (Lloyd and his grand-daughter are in interview on this BBC Radio 4 clip - RealPlayer required)

Later in the month, the channel will be showing Hindle Wakes, Picadilly, and A Cottage on Dartmoor, just to make me feel really sick at my lack of digital TV...
