How is it, that george gets to spend his second (valentines) year in a row in the U.K? Two weeks at a pop! I think he's been to the U.K. Twice in '07 & now '08?! On Cdn tax payers. Does he have a valentine there or is someone else at cbc, in lust/love with g.

Maybe he does not want to celebrate St Valentines... Who knows? I think it's all about the Brit Awards and not about Georges private life at all. The CBC features the Brit Awards and Coronation Street and George and The Hour promote it and get some very interesting interviews out of it. I think sending GS there is worth the money to promote the CBC's British imports. Fair exchange.

I'm surprised they are showing repeats since they pretaped enough for the entire week. I was in the audience one day when they had us stay for some extra shooting at the end. They told us what day the interview would air on but yet they have reruns instead.

easy tigers, it's just a week!

Just saw Georgie on CBC Morning talking about why they are in London next week and he's calling next week the unofficial British Week, with the Brit Awards and BAFTA and his show. They're also doing a set visit to the Coronation set...

So it's all publicity and not just his personal whim or anything to do with Valentine's Day, one of the most overrated Hallmark holidays out there.

speaking of George

here's one of his interviews (you guys may already be familiar with it)

or you can try

they are both the same interview

no the above comment was not spam.


PS. Wasn't he dating someone at the CBC? I doubt he's still with her. At least he plays it down.

I was expecting The Hour to be live from London this week. Although, G had mentioned someone would cover his radio show Sunday past and the following show would be aired from London.

BTW - Valentine's Day may put him in a precarious predicament
for various reasons. Best to avoid it altogether !


Barbara said...

Thank you Anon for sending the link to the interview. I found it very interesting. I like what George was saying about listening.

A true Best of Week. Can't get enough of Jamie Oliver and Robbie the Tiger.

As far as the timing of being in London as Barbara said, it's awards season in Britain. Baftas and Brits. Ideal time to get
some great interviews and other entertaining features completed. A Canadian ex-pat friend is excited to be attending a taping.

Anon 8:13 & 8:29 - Who cares who George may or may not be seeing? His work is public, his life is his own.
