The television historian answered your questions about presenting from a bathtub, her posh accent and dancing with Len Goodman

Thanks for the questions. And I see some of you have already read my book Jane Austen At Home. You are people with taste and intelligence, and I salute you. The rest of you, you know what to do.

Watch out for our BBC2 documentary on Saturday night - Jane Austen: Behind Closed Doors at 9pm. I've heard there is some football on, but you don't want to watch that.

Think 2016 was a dumpster fire of awfulness? Imagine how terrible it could have been if we didn't have Beyoncé. All things considered, it wasn't too shabby a year for Miss Carter, as she is closing it out with nine Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year for Lemonade. As for the rest of her best moments, it's nearly impossible to wean down every single thing she did, but here are 17 of her biggest, best, most Beyoncé moments of the past 365 days, give or take.

1. "Formation"

After she stopped the world with the surprise release of her self-titled album in 2013 -- eternally earning the practice the nomenclature, "pulling a Beyoncé" -- is it any surprise that Beyoncé pulled a Beyoncé to drop her new single, innocuously uploading "Formation" and the accompanying music video online with zero fanfare?

It's in the Blood and Finding Common Ground: A Movie Review

*full disclosure: a DVD screener of this film was provided by Greenhouse Studios. Director: Scooter Downey. Writers: Scooter Downey, and Sean Elliot. Cast: Lance Henriksen, Sean Elliot, Rose Sirna and Jimmy Gonzales. It's in the Blood is a small indie production centrally starring Lance Henriksen and Sean Elliot. Elliot also performed writing duties on this thriller. But, can this film be classified into one genre? There are elements of horror with creatures and ghosts appearing within foggy environments. There are dramatic elements as well as a father and a son try to bond after a tragic event. This is also a psychological journey. Characters October (Elliot) and Russell (Henriksen) are externalizing some of their angst in this hiking trip gone wrong. It's in the Blood is a blend of genres, but essentially this title is a psychological drama. The story does begin simply with a trip out into the woods.

Trailer For Lance Henriksen Starrer 'It's In The Blood'

Trailer For Lance Henriksen Starrer 'It's In The Blood'
Lance Henriksen, Sean Elliot, Rose Sirna, and Jimmy Gonzalez will all star in Sean Elliot & Scooter Downey's It's In The Blood, a new indie that's now got a trailer and official website. "When a father and son become stranded in the wild, they must confront the horrors of their past to escape with their lives." The site writes: "'It's In the Blood' is a wholly unique cinematic movement. At its core a father-son story, the film is a deconstruction of the prototypical "creature feature", incorporating elements of mystical realism and psychological thriller. We call it a Psyche-Saga. Lance Henriksen stars in this nightmarish descent into the Wilderness, the very heart of darkness where more than your guilt can eat you alive."
