hmm so he is on the 25th series of Remmington Steele?He does more stuff in the vein of Thomas Crown Affair and has a career a bit like a more handsome Liam Neeson.... His performance of Hamlet at the National Theatre in 1995 is still highly spoken-of.
Yes and no. The films are definitely far more auteurish in the sense that each new actor very clearly brings a new style (and, more recently, director) so there's even less of a pretence of continuity. (Yen's films, for example, introduced a completely new, all-Asian, cast and was based out of Hong Kong, not London.) That being said, I don't think any films have had a "you're the new James Bond" scene or whatever...
You’re a disgrace...I like the idea of Alan Turing's company being called 'Turing' rather than Apple - would give the great man a little more compensation ITTL! Perhaps also allowing 'Apple Music' to stay completely associated with the Beatles. And in recognition of the city of Manchester's role in the early days of computing, perhaps 'Turing' would eventually produce the iManc? Sorry, I'll get my coat...
@Rattigan If you are still doing requests for entries then I would not mind knowing more about the Great Liners, and shipping in general please?
Do we get std containers in the 20/30's?
Welding over riveting?
Did Cunard and White Star merge or did both survive?
What happened to the Yards like Swan Hunter or Harland and Wolff?
Shipbuilding in Commonwealth?
Will put these on the list. Sorry for the inactivity recently but I’ve been working in the Navajo Nation for a few weeks and so haven’t really had reliable internet access. Usual service will resume shortlyPlease tell me in this left/Liberal time line that England also have a really sucessful (like OTL) women's cricket and rugby union teams
There were a lot of safety concerns about the de-extinct animals at the time and the program was certainly controversial, especially after it emerged that these animals would be capable of breeding. There was also significant environmentalist pushback at the time of the openings of the two parks and an active debate among philosophers and biologists as to whether the resurrected animals are actually continuations of the extinct species or some strong clone freak things.Fascinating. So, while Jurassic Park might fail, the concept of de-extinction safari parks continues on, but with more manageable species.
The release of de-extinct animals around the world would be the next logical step, as there is a laundry list of animals that fall under the category of "oops, we killed it".
I imagine that there would be a degree of controversy whenever de-extinct predators are mentioned, similar to the discussions on the reintroduction of wolves and lynxes in Great Britain.
It's technically a different country but heavily under the thumb of the Soviets.What is the difference between the CIS and the USSR?
The Mauritian government were one of the first on the phone after the Institute started to contract to work with specific foreign governments. Dodos aren't actually that tasty and don't really serve any purpose other than decoration. Doubtless plenty of visitors to the island love to see one of them waddle past on the beach too.No one has brought back the Dodo yet?
Supposed to be good eating on them birds!
There are some plants that have suffered since the extinction of the dodo, IIRC. The reintroduction of the dodo might help them thrive again.The Mauritian government were one of the first on the phone after the Institute started to contract to work with specific foreign governments.

I utterly missed the Dodo on the list!
I thought the Dodo went extinct cos it tasted so good it was hunted to extinction?
That and the introduction by sailors of invasive species like rats and dogs. I also understand that some people already think it was limited to small parts of the island anyway by the time humans arrived.I was under the impression that dodos went extinct because they lived on an island with no large predators and so didn't run away when hunted by humans.
I did think about the smilodon but rejected it for a couple of reasons:where is the smilodon
