27 Mar TV and Essential Viewing for a Strange Spring
Last year we took a look at some of the best movies to enjoy using your home cinema for the second half of 2019. Now we all find ourselves at home with the perfect opportunity to catch up on some of the best content on TV.
This is a serious time and we must all look after ourselves and our families and at the moment the best way to do this is to stay home and help the NHS slow the spread of this devastating virus. We must all take heed of the Government’s advice and, let’s be honest; it’s not the biggest hardship.
To help you to fill some of your spare time we have put together a list of some of the most essential viewing for this spring. We’ve split it up as there are some obvious ones.
If you are looking to keep the kids active and entertained there are loads of things on YouTube to watch as a family.
The Body Coach Joe Wicks – has been producing home PE lessons for kids to follow along with at home, they’re fun and engaging and his enthusiasm really helps kids to join in and get active in the morning. Google search to find out specific details but you can find some of his content on his YouTube Channel.
Zoo Web cams – Whisk yourself away to the wild and spy on the exotic animals on display at various zoos around the country. Many have live streams on their websites so you can see what the animals get up to throughout the day. It’s amazing to see how the animals behave and can be really educational too. Marwell Zoo among others have made their streams readily available.
WhatsOnStage – have made a number of theatre productions available to watch on the small screen. So if you need your theatre fix make sure you head to their website and enjoy!
Movies on Demand
As the UK is now on lock down and families are in isolation, some of the big Hollywood studios are releasing their movies earlier than expected via on-demand platforms to make up for the lack of cinema footfall. The Radio Times have put together a list of films and how to watch them.
Wish Upon a Star
Yep, it’s here. The Disney+ subscription service has arrived and is choc-full of content to fill your days. From the classic animations to brand new content it really is a tempting subscription to bolster your existing Netflix, Sky and Prime offering. The Disney+ content can even be streamed in resolutions up to 4K Ultra HD in Dolby Vision and HDR10, with Dolby Atmos sound at no extra cost!
