On BBC 2 tonight Sat 2 May 10:30pm-11:30pm https://www.tvguide.co.uk/detail/3649601/25239507/lee-millera-life-on-the-front-line Lee Miller is one of the most remarkable female icons of the 20th century. A fashion model-turned-photographer, then later a war reporter, Miller chose to live life by her own rules. This documentary drama celebrates a subject who defied anyone who tried to pin her down, put her on a pedestal or pigeonhole her in any way. Often at odds with the morality of the day, she refused to be subjugated by the dominant male figures around her. https://www.leemiller.co.uk/component/Main/17ToA3p1yfaBss9G2InA3w..a?wosid=gfQNTt9bB0AUhrLX6IzsTw

  6. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-51263999 https://www.jimmarshallphotographyllc.com/ When photographer Jim Marshall died, in 2010, he left behind more than a million pictures that captured the true face of music in the 1960s and 70s. From Hendrix burning his guitar at Woodstock, to Johnny Cash playing Folsom Prison to The Beatles last concert, Marshall was on hand to not only record the moment but to capture it in such a way as to help define its place in history. A new film, Show Me the Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall, captures the stories behind the images and the man himself, a complex character who fully immersed himself into the culture of the time. His pictures can be found on more than 500 album covers.
  7. THIS PROBLEM HAS NOW BEEN RESOLVED. Thank you to those wammers who replied to this query, your help was much appreciated, once again Waming at it's best. Now that I know that you can plug speakers into a headphone socket I set about looking in the loft, where I keep discarded hifi odds n sods & I came across a pair of Harman Kardon HK 206 PC speakers & yesterday I connected them up to my grandsons Samsung monitor & he was 'chuffed' as they say up north. As a matter of interest I have a pair of B&W 600i series speakers connected to my PC, a very cheap charity shop find from many years ago!! Thanks again. willie g
  8. Thanks for your reply & help here. I would imagine a budget of no more than £50 for some PC speakers would be ok.
  9. Hi, My grandson was given a Samsung 27" curved screen monitor (model c27f396fhu) by his dad for Christmas & he has just let me know that this model does not have it's own speakers, it just has a headphone jack!! As I know nothing about this sort of thing I thought I'd ask for help on the Wam. Apparently my grandson wants to use this monitor when he is playing with his PS4. So if it is possible to use the headphone jack on the TV please could you let me know what he needs to ask his dad to buy in the way of speakers & what sort of connection they should have please. Cheers, willie g

  11. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/stories-50186270 It's 50 years since the photographer, Moneta Sleet, became the first African American to win a Pulitzer prize for journalism. Has his work received the recognition it deserves? On 4 April 1968, Moneta Sleet Jnr made his way to the front of the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, as the funeral of Martin Luther King was about to begin. He found a position that allowed him to see Coretta Scott King, the civil rights leader's widow, and the photograph he took of her won him a Pulitzer Prize. It almost didn't happen. Initially, no black photojournalists were selected to cover the funeral, but when word of this reached Coretta Scott King she insisted that the black media be represented. If Moneta Sleet was not allowed into the church, she is reported to have said, there would be no photographers at all. The shot that won the following year's Pulitzer prize for feature photography shows the civil rights leader's dignified, veiled widow clutching her youngest child's head to her lap, while five-year-old Bernice's eyes gaze mournfully across the church.
