TV and Streaming – Thursday 16th April 2020

Morning!

It’s Thursday, so that means clapping for the key workers at 8pm tonight. Also today, we should recognise the amazing work that Captain Tom Moore has done. Walking 100 laps of his home to raise money for the NHS. He only wanted to raise £1,000. At the time of writing, he has raised over £12 million and has completed his task. Well done, sir, we salute you!

The other exciting news is that Movie Weekly is back! You can tune into www.zackfm.com at 10pm tonight for an hour of movie reviews and music. It’s the same as this but shorter. Be great if you could join me.

Stay safe, stay inside and Happy Thursday!
