BBC iPlayer - Sophia: Suffragette Princess

In the week when Sikhs across the world are celebrating the birth of their founder, Guru Nanak, BBC political journalist Anita Anand tells the fascinating and largely unknown story of Princess Sophia Duleep Singh - descendant of Sikh royalty, goddaughter of Queen Victoria and pioneering suffragette. Bold and fearless, she marched alongside Emmeline Pankhurst in protest outside parliament, refused to pay her taxes until women got the vote, and even threw herself in front of prime minister Asquith's car.

The video is available to users in the UK until  22nd December 2015

TV Pilot - Bangers & Cash by @RanjitSShubh @01Hassankhan

Being a huge fan of Television Shows.. I'm always fascinated by Pilots. I remember watching the very first episode of Friends and thinking Wow, that's pretty freaking cool.

I've come across a new kind of Pilot show called Bangers and Cash which has been set up by Ranjit Singh Shubh and Hassan Khan. Ranjit who you may have seen recently in a hilarious advert for Tango and Hassan who has his own hugely successful web series called Corner Shop Show.

The shows premise is based around some interesting staff and customers in a greasy spoon, including Tamar Hassan from one of my favourite films, The Business.

Check out the pilot below and if you like it, then share it and let your friends know. The more interest the pilot has, the greater chance of it becoming a TV Show.
