I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.

Sky+

You may have seen the Sky+ adverts on terrestrial television and in newspapers and magazines where celebrities talk about how they love Sky+ and their digibox. For example the actor Ross Kemp (Grant Mitchell in Eastenders, Staff Sergeant Henno Garvie in Ultimate Force and Ross Kemp in Afghanistan on Sky One) says about Sky Digital TV:

I am out of the country for months at a time and Sky+ allows me to keep up to date with the TV programmes I like. I have been travelling a lot lately and Sky+ means I do not miss a thing. Even if I am away for months, I just set it up before I leave. Then, when I come home, I sit down with a beer and curry and catch up on all the football programmes Iíve missed. Sky+ has changed the way I watch television completely. It allows you to control what you watch. My nanís got it and she records the snooker and watches it back.

Chat show host and radio presenter Sir Michael Parkinson discusses the ease with which he uses his Sky+ box and control and calls it utter simplicity. You wonder how you managed without it

Many busy people, including the celebrities love the ability to record entire series of TV programmes so that they never miss an episode of their favourite serial. Mariella Frostrup, a journalist and TV presenter, works long hours but still likes to watch television and says Without series link I' would have to rely on my non-existent memory. Sky+ helps me to see all episodes of the series I'm into. It just makes your life so much easier. My kids make me pause and rewind, pause and rewind to replay one particular scene from one programme. They love the gory scenes from the nature programmes Ė like when the snake gets the mouse. I just wish they could focus on the whole series, to experience a nicer range of things.

Doctor Who, The Camomile Lawn, Rosemary and Thyme and The Good Life star actress Felicity Kendall sums Sky+ up succinctly:

Something that was quite complicated once is now very, very simple.

Sky+ has certainly revolutionised how people at home watch and record their favourite programmes. Personal video recorders could soon be consigned to the history books as more and more people bring Sky+ to their homes and learn to use this simple gadget effortlessly. Sky+ has a proven track record of reliability with its memory of 80GB providing over 40 hours of recording time. The on screen menu is simple to follow and even the most technophobe can handle its easy programming as it guides you through its instructions to record the programmes of your choice.

Even if you leave home and forget to set Sky+ you can always use your mobile phone to set your programs via a satellite. Surround sound can be enjoyed thanks to the multichannel amp.

Sky+ allows you to watch one channel and record another and the hard drive stores the program thus saving space in the home from cumbersome videos or delicate discs. The playback quality is identical to the original transmission and not grainy like in some recordings. With Sky+ it is even possible to watch the start of the recording even before the end of the program has been recorded. After you've used Sky+ you will wonder why you ever used a VHS video recorder and tapes. The Sky+ Personal Video Recorder is simply one of the best gadgets invented for home entertainment.
