Northern Lights - Joanna Lumley by Spursfan on 8 September 2008 9:23am
 
Did anyone (in the UK) catch Joanna Lumley last night on BBC 1?

It was a fabulous programme, I was gripped until the very end. She really is excellent at doing programmes like this, and her enthusiasm was catching!

Perhaps in this case it's because my husband and I long to see the Northern Lights too!

Well done Joanna!!

I saw the programme too, Anne. It was fantastic and Joanna Lumley was great. She was really amusing in the ice hotel! I would love to see the Northern Lights one day too.

You ought to be able to see them in England--I've seen them several times here in the states, and I'm about 10 degrees latitude south of London. But there probably won't be much for a few years, as we're in a low period of the sun spot cycle. My husband keeps up with these things because he's a ham radio maven, and sun spots affect transmission.

We had a fantastic display about 3 years ago--teal green, magenta, bright red, and white moving shapes of light for well over an hour. We let our daughter stay up till 11pm so she could see it. Mostly I've seen beams of white, flickering light. This was only the second time I've seen other colors, but it was spectacular.

Never seen 'em. Too bad I cannot see the program.
I am playing with a short story where I am making something like her AbFab character Mayor of New York City.

Oh, I'd love to see it (BBC Iplayer don't work on my computer for some extraordinary reason). Maybe YLE shows it in Finland someday.
