The Secret Life of Ice 7 pm BBC4 today
« on: April 05, 2020, 03:39:12 PM »
English Style skating features in this programme.  The BBC came to Guildford to film a session back about eight or more years ago.  I canít remember how far into the programme we appear but itís all interesting anyway.  My few seconds of fame!!


Hope everyone is okay and it wonít be too long before we can skate again!

Thank you for this, Carrie!  I've just watched the programme on iPlayer.  It was fascinating and lovely to see the English Style being skated.  I hope it continues when we get our ice back.
Returned to the ice in Sept 2017 after a major leg injury in 1999. Skating in Graf Dance boots and MK Phantom Para blades. It's still a bit slippery.

Amen to that; roll on next Monday (13th) when things should be reviewed..
Sliding on frozen water is the easy part of ice skating.

I reckon we're in this for the long haul.  After all, there's no vaccine available yet and testing isn't happening at a great rate.  My thoughts are that we'll be in strict social distancing - and probably "lockdown" - for a couple of months at least.

Good to hear that New Zealand's prime minister has deemed the Tooth fairy, and the Easter Bunny as 'essential workers'.


Anybody else notice the change in the details? Originally it was "All indoor leisure and sports facilities, including gyms"
https://www.gov.uk/government/news/government-announces-further-measures-on-social-distancing
This would of included ice rinks, but note that it specifies 'indoors' (outdoor rinks would of been fine, right?)

One week later;
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/further-businesses-and-premises-to-close/further-businesses-and-premises-to-close-guidance
Skating rinks are specifically stated, with no exceptions.

Not available outside the UK.  Bummer.  This happens a lot and I wish there was a way to watch BBC documentaries from France.  We had the same problem with the BBC children's shows when the kids were little. =-(
