Can you tell us which channel this will be on please, Malcolm. I copied the last lot and found them very good and informative.

Mind you,  there's a copy cat version just started with different folks  which is not so good as they don't cover the mechanics in great detail.  More a show like the  Orange County Choppers show with the arguments and playing to camera.

Probably Discovery Turbo - the promo does appear on several channels, though. 
I do appreciate the factual nature of the show since I feel that the soap opera aspect on others is simply not needed in a program about technical matters.  You want contrived human drama, go look at Coronation St, Eastenders, Emmerdull, professional wrestling etc.

Emergency personnel respond to the scene of a train derailment in Hanford, California, on Monday.
Two cars and the locomotive of the train car derailed after colliding with a big rig truck in California's
Central Valley. At least 20 passengers suffered minor to moderate injuries, authorities said.

I feel another ripoff a comin'. Yesterday tried to buy an ES27  60W  incandescent lamp for my bench light. No can do sir. I could buy an equivalent 50W halogen lamp but these break every time I move the lamp and are expensive.  So I looked at LED lamps. WoW' just to replace the down lighters  (21) in kitchen and workshop is over £250. How long to get that back? Then last night the energy saving fluorescent lamp on table in the lounge failed. It's not 2 years old. Remember Tomorrow's World? They told us about CDs and DVDs, remember. You'll be able to tread on them and they'll still play! Yeah, right.
Jerry.

This article I find very sad, in that Armstrong arguably helped make the current sport what it is and now his whole career appears to be toppling around his ears due to these revelations which now seem to have more concrete substance to them daily...... We can only hope that the fallout from this doesn't mar the brilliant achievements of British cyclists over the last season.   http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/cycling/19903716   :((

The proceedings leading up to this were highly questionable, but should Armstrong be stripped of his titles, who do they go to?  More importantly, how much scrutiny will the new recipients get before they are similarly pushed back?  Repeat until you run out of entrants....

There are still lots of incandescent lamps on Ebay and Amazon, including ES27s. Try there and stock up for a few years.
Just a suggestion.

Look around for companies selling incandescent lamps for rough use, ie use in a garage lead light. Thes type of lamps  can still be brought as they were not included in the stupid regulations. They are the same size as the old lamps we use in our homes and they can be brought in ES or BF types.

Nothing to it.
 
Obviously it was an exercise by Sydney Based commandos testing security like they used to do years ago, when all bases were guarded by armed ADF personnel.
 
Today we have private contractors who are more efficient etc etc doing the job  %) %) %)
