Interviewed guest at James Graham special

The celebrated playwright James Graham is getting a special programme on BBC One next January 21st at 22:45 UK Time.

During this special, Martin Freeman as well as other guests such as Benedict Cumberbatch and Tamsin Grieg will be interviewed as actors that have worked with James Graham material: Martin and Tamsin in Labour of Love and Benedict in Brexit.

To be able to watch this TV show you will need to be in the UK or have a UK IP. If that’s the case then you should click on this link for the BBC One live URL. Considering the same requirements you can watch the show some minutes after it airs from the iPlayer at the programme’s website.

New photos from Jamie and Jimmy Friday Night Feast

As we’ve posted before, Martin shot some time ago an episode which is going to be the second one from the latest series of the cooking show “Jamie and Jimmy Friday Night Feast”.

We’ve added the photos we’ve gathered so far from the different promos they’ve given us. If more photos turn up we will add them to the same album. Check it out here.

Martin joins others for Stevie Wonder: a musical history

Next Friday (November 30) at 10PM (UK Time) BBC Four will broadcast “Stevie Wonder: a musical history” which will include a participation from Martin who as we all know is a big Stevie Wonder fan.

You can watch it live here or after it airs on the iplayer from the programme’s website. For either case, you will need to be in the UK or have an UK IP address.

More information about Martin’s new tv show Breeders

Yesterday was the first screening of Martin’s new TV Show “Breeders”. One of the viewers reactions can be read in this tweet:

Moreover IMDB is listing Breeders as being in post-production so it’s possible it has been greenlit to go forward which is great news. Although it says “tv movie” we believe that’s an error since it’s been established that it’s a tv show.

And last but not least, we have words from the man itself in a recently published interview for The Telegrah (if you have access to the articles you can read it here, otherwise go here where someone published it):

Created by and starring Freeman, Breeders is about “the stuff in parenting that nice middle-class people just don’t want to talk about, and almost never do,“ he says. “And I can’t quite believe it. I can’t have serious conversations with parents who don’t admit that sometimes they want to throw themselves out of a window – for real!

“I realised when my kids were very, very young that I couldn’t have any more nice north London conversations about how fantastic it was. Yes, of course it is – you love your kids more than anything in the world. But sometimes you want to kill everyone in your house.”

 

Watching Conan

As we know, Martin is visiting Conan tonight. In fact, as we are writing this they should be recording the show that is aired at 11PM EST. Remember that Martin is his second guest so he shouldn’t be up immediately, but approximatelly 15 minutes after it starts.

Watching Conan LIVE:
note: After the show ends, there’s usually a rerun that airs about 30 minutes-an hour later.
If you are in the US you can:
– watch it on the telly if you have TBS in your Cable Network.
– watch it live on TBS website (you have to sign up) or downloading TBS apps for your phone/tablet.

If you are outside the US you can:
– try to use a VPN and go to TBS website (but you’ll still have to sign up and we’re unsure what information they ask). We have tried several VPNs and past shows from Conan didn’t work so this is not reliable.
– try to use a livestream (eg Stream2Watch). If you’ve ever tried watching something live using a livestream you know it’s a PAIN, and it’s full of ads and stuff that popups, use at your own risk. However it could be the only option that works to watch it live. Take into account in your decision the fact that you will be able to watch it later somehow.

Watching Conan LATER:
If you are in the US you can:
– watch the full episodes on http://teamcoco.com/ (you need an updated version of Flash)
– watch it on TBS website/apps (by midday the following day)
– watch it on demand if you Cable operator gives you this option

If you are outside the US you can:
– watch clips from TeamCoco’s youtube channel
– watch it later from a website like this which has ads and popups too so be careful, use at your own risk. We don’t endorse it.
