Sky Arts 2 ran a season in 2013 on Great West End Theatres with Sir Donald Sinden as the presenter and his son, Marc, the director. †The series covered 10 theatres and there are plans for future series covering 40 theatres in all.

I missed the series but I discovered from the website that you can order a DVD so I put it on my Christmas list. †I somehow thought that each DVD would feature several theatres but there is just one per DVD and †my mother decided to purchase for me the one on the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

It is a sumptuous production and packed with wonderful anecdotes told in Sir Donald's inimitable tones. †(I had heard one or two before but there were lots of very funny stories I hadn't heard). It also features interviews with Sir Ian McKellen, Steven Berkoff and Martin Shaw, who have performed there.

My only grumble is that £10 for a 45 minute DVD seem a a bit steep to me but I expect that eventually I'll purchase all of them.

I see that the series is being repeated on Sky starting tomorrow,  Monday 3 March at 7 pm.  Well worth watching if you have Sky and love old theatres.

Debating whether to invest in SKY. †But my TV & recorder & digibox & DVD player are all working so well I'm reluctant to muck about with them.
