Christmas Television Highlights on BBC

Hi, it’s Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonhill with a round-up of the best greenygrey television highlights from the BBC over the festive period. First of all, it’s great to see my human parallel, Harry Hill, now has a movie out.

Thirteenth Tale

The Thirteenth Tale film had a continuous stream of great greenygrey scenery, as well as a twins ghost theme. It was described by Metro T.V. critic Keith Watson as ‘beautiful nonsense’ and ‘beautifully mounted’.

Here’s just a few examples of its greenygrey versatile ubiquity, showing outdoors, wardrobe and indoors from just over a minute of the film (24.47 to 25.56).

It was mostly filmed in Yorkshire, and is available to start watching on BBC iplayer before 23.00 GMT tonight (Monday 6th):

Sherlock

Sherlock made a welcome return to the screen, and set its first of a trilogy finale in a greenygrey London Underground carriage:

Andy Murray Wins Wimbledon, Lions Win Australia Test Series

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, comedy satire sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. Sorry to those tuning in for your second episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps of the week, but an amazing weekend of greenygrey-relevant sport took place this weekend, so the next thrilling installment of your favourite werewolf travels Australia fantasy travel adventure has been rescheduled to Monday.

British and Irish Lions Outpace Wallabies

The weekend started off on the right paw when the British and Irish Lions caught the Australian Wallabies on the hop, winning the third test 41-16 to take the series 2-1.

It was the first Lions series win since 1997, and first in Australia since Marc Latham helped them to another series deciding win in Sydney 1989.

The Lions were more reminiscent of wolves than lions this time in Sydney, as their endurance saw them to victory after the Wallabies courageously fought back from a large opening half-hour deficit. (the Lions are of course known as Wolves in the wolf world, and Wollions in the Greenygrey world).

Andy Murray Wins Wimbledon

Then Andy Murray became the first British (thank you Scotland) Wimbledon men’s champion since 1936 on Sunday. While winning the Wimbledon warm-up tournament at Queens Murray wore a kit that has been passed by the Board of Greenygrey Sport as sufficiently greenygrey to be greenygrey.

After winning the Wimbledon title, one of the first things Murray did was to embrace the Greenygrey:

How to Win Olympic Gold Medals: the Greenygrey Verdict

Howldy do, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, still enjoying my reporting stint at Olympics 2012. I’ve been so caught up in all the action that I missed another gold for Team GG. Shelley Ann Fraser-Pryce won the women’s 100 metres to give Team GG a third gold medal; well, in fact it was the second one, as it was before Usain Bolt won the men’s 100 metres. Here’s Shelly enjoying the victory in greenygrey:

 

Golds in Greenygrey Conditions

On August 2nd I wondered if Team GB had won gold in the rowing and not in the swimming because of the greenygrey environment of the former, and a distinct lack of greenygrey in the aquatic centre.

After that, there were further Team GB golds in other greenygrey conditions, such as Baillie and Stott in the canoeing and the athletics team’s treble gold in an hour on Saturday night.

Then Andy Murray embraced the Greenygrey after victory at Wimbledon, and Ben Ainslie won gold in front of the Greenygrey.

And then the Brownlees won gold and bronze in very greenygrey Hyde Park.

So it all looked good for the Greenygrey being the secret ingredient for Team GB’s gold rush.

Golds Won Beyond the Greenygrey

From those examples we could probably exaggerate the Greenygrey’s worth, but we believe in giving you the full story, and cannot hide the fact that Team GB won seven golds in the cycling velodrome without a hint of greenygrey on display, so the theory seems to have been disproved.

Although it seems that the greenygrey can be beneficial for training, providing a nicer environment and thus more motivation to get out there, it doesn’t seem to be essential for gold success in competitions. Therefore, Team GB swimming probably wouldn’t have won any golds even if there had been a greenygrey environment around the pool. They did very well anyway.

Instead, competing well and winning seem to be mostly down to body, mind and spirit, which just happens to be the theme of Grey’s amazing comedy-fantasy epic classic marathon virtual trek around Oz book, Werewolf of Oz: Fantasty Travel by Google Maps.

Usain Bolt and Andy Murray Win Golds for Teams GG and GB

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, the very busy sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. It was another amazing day at Olympics 2012 yesterday, with Team GG picking up its second gold, and Team GB two more. We’ll have the Greenygrey coverage of Ben Ainslie‘s gold tomorrow, together with a rowing summary, making it a watery Tuesday… maybe we should keep it until Wednesday…

Usain Bolt Wins Gold for Team GG

It seems a long time since Team GG won its first gold in the pool, but Usain Bolt delivered another scintillating 100 metres performance to put Team GG back on the podium. Here’s a photo from the BBC coverage  of Bolt celebrating and showing off the greenygrey colours after his sprint:

 

Andy Murray Embraces the Greenygrey after Tennis Gold

Andy Murray won Britain’s first Olympic men’s single title for over a century and his first major title on centre court, and climbed up into the crowd to embrace his family, friends and coaches afterwards.

But first he stopped off to embrace the Greenygrey, for a truly touching moment caught by the BBC cameraman:

Wimbledon 2012: Murray Mount holds off Greenygrey Gulch Grove

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams. The main screen viewing place at the Wimbledon tennis tournament changed from Henman Hill to Murray Mount after Tim Henman retired and Andy Murray took over as the big British men’s singles hope.

Murray Mounts Title Challenge

With Murray suffering a bad back at the start of the tournament, and greenygrey weather forecast for most of the tournament’s fortnight, we were ready to rename Murray Mount ‘Greenygrey Gulch Grove’ for the end of the tournament.

But Andy Murray has managed to win through to today’s Wimbledon men’s singles final, and there has been enough greenyblue weather to keep the tournament on schedule; although we are proud that the greenygrey centre-court roof did help.

Good luck to Andy Murray today, and congratulations to Britain’s Jonathan Marray and Denmark’s Freddie Nielsen for last night’s thrilling men’s doubles win.
