Saki -The Improper Stories of H. H. Munro - Granada TV - 1962
 
46:47
Here's a lovely piece of classic TV from 1962 that was rebroadcast to mark the passing of the legendary producer/Writer Philip Mackie in 1985 - Saki -The Improper Stories of H. H. Munro - Granada TV - 1962. In 1962 Granada TV Network Productions presented 8 plays under the banner Saki, The Improper Stories of H. H. Munro (Hector Hugh Munro, better known by the pen name Saki, was a British writer whose witty, mischievous and sometimes macabre stories satirised Edwardian society and culture and he is considered a master of the short story). The stories were adapted by Hugh Leonard, Edward Boyd and Gerald Savory and directed by Silvio Narizzano. Produced by Philip Mackie. The main cast included Martita Hunt, Fenella Fielding, William Mervyn and Richard Vernon. Writing in the book Granada Television The First Generation, John Cox, former Executive Drama Producer for Granada writes: 'Although Granada's commitment to drama first of all meant television adaptations of stage plays, there were soon a respectable number of original plays in production...often in the form of series: the short stories of Saki and de Maupassant, the Feydeau farces and the Victorian melodramas. The audience were offered the security of a known quantity each week, because each story was self-contained.' Norman Frisby, who was Press Officer at Granada from 1959 to 1988 remembered that when the Drama Department came up with the series of legendary short stories and decided to bill them as The Improper Stories of H. H. Munro, actually the literary title, TV Times "...hit the roof. 'You can't do that,' bleated the billings sub. 'It'll make them sound like dirty stories.' 'We insist,' I insisted. TV Times cut the line but only for the first week or two.' Unfortunately, there appears to be very little information available on the series (all the stories that were adapted) and even the individual episodes seemed to lack a story synopsis or even a title (other than 'First programme', 'Second Programme', etc.) on the pages of the TV Times magazines (see example in side column) the weeks the episodes were shown. It is known that the following were adapted for television: The Stampeding of Lady Bastable, A Holiday Task, The Way to the Dairy, Sredni Vashtar and A Defensive Diamond. 01] Saki: THE STAMPEDING OF LADY BASTABLE/ A HOLIDAY TASK/ THE WAY IS THE DIARY/ SRENDI VASHTI/ A DEFENSIVE DIAMOND (60 min) 06-Jul-1962 ITV Network, Friday Producer: Philip Mackie Stories by H.H. Munro (Saki) Adapted by Gerald Savory, Hugh Leonard, Edward Boyd. Directed by Gordon Flemyng * Starring: Martita Hunt ............ Lady Bastable Fenella Fielding ........ Mary Drakmanton William Mervyn .......... Sir Hector Richard Vernon ......... The Major Mark Burns .............. Clovis Rosamund Greenwood ...... Veronique Brimley-Bomefield Guest Cast: June Eccles Raymond Gatenby Phillip Anthony Nora Nicholson Pamela Pichford Hugo De Vernier Phillip Locke Sonia Dresdel Paul Holdaway Daphne Oxenford Peter Bathunt Hector Hugh Munro (18 December 1870 – 14 November 1916), better known by the pen name Saki, and also frequently as H. H. Munro, was a British writer whose witty, mischievous and sometimes macabre stories satirize Edwardian society and culture. He is considered a master of the short story, and often compared to O. Henry and Dorothy Parker. Influenced by Oscar Wilde, Lewis Carroll and Rudyard Kipling, he himself influenced A. A. Milne, Noël Coward and P. G. Wodehouse.[1] Besides his short stories (which were first published in newspapers, as was customary at the time, and then collected into several volumes), he wrote a full-length play, The Watched Pot, in collaboration with Charles Maude; two one-act plays; a historical study, The Rise of the Russian Empire, the only book published under his own name; a short novel, The Unbearable Bassington; the episodic The Westminster Alice (a parliamentary parody of Alice in Wonderland); and When William Came, subtitled A Story of London Under the Hohenzollerns, a fantasy about a future German invasion and occupation of Britain.

Lore summary - From Drakengard to Nier: Automata
 
27:18
(SPOILER WARNING!) This video contains spoilers for the games Drakengard 1, Drakengard 2, Drakengard 3 and Nier: Gestalt/Replicant. CC is available if you can't decipher my mumbling. This started out as just a project between me and my friend trying to piece together the story so-far in order to help out our mutual friend who has little to no knowledge of the Drakenier universe but it quickly got out of hand and so we decided to piece together this video in hopes of not only raising awareness of the series but also help the people that aren't very knowledgable about the series. This is a series that I hold very dear to my heart and so I really don't want people to overlook Nier: Automata as I believe it will bring the true gameplay and world-building that Yoko Tarou's stories have been deprived of in the past. His past games aren't exactly well-known in the West, mainly due to their conveluted plots but also due to the fact that they're just not that great when you look past the story. But I am desperately hoping that Nier: Automata will be a turning point, which is why I am strongly opposed the idea of people sleeping on this game. As I mentioned in the video, you don't actually have to know any of the lore in order to enjoy Nier: Automata but the people that are going into the game with no prior knowledge of the series will be missing out on over 11000 years of lore, and that's just a bummer! Here is a link to a wonderfully well done picture showing the different timelines (created by Rekka Alexiel): http://nier2.com/images/DOD-NIER-timeline-20160418.png Nier: Automata will be released in the beginning of March, please make sure to support it!

Outside the window of her room, the leaves fall from a vine. Johnsy decides that when the last leaf drops, she too will die, while her friend Sue tries to tell her to stop thinking so pessimistically. In the same apartment building, an elderly, frustrated artist named Behrman lives below Johnsy and Sue. Behrman has been claiming that he will paint a masterpiece, even though he has never even attempted to start. Sue visits Behrman, telling him that Johnsy, who is dying of pneumonia, is losing her will to live. Sue tells Behrman that Johnsy claims she will die when the last leaf falls off of the vine outside her window. Behrman scoffs at this as foolishness, but—as he is protective of the two young artists—he decides to visit Johnsy and see the vine from her window. In the night, a very bad storm comes and wind is howling and rain is splattering against the window. Sue closes the curtains and tells Johnsy to go to sleep, even though there is still one leaf left on the vine. Johnsy protests against having the curtains closed, but Sue insists on doing so because she doesn't want Johnsy to see the last leaf fall. In the morning, Johnsy wants to see the vine to be sure that all the leaves are gone, but to their surprise, there is still one leaf left. While Johnsy is surprised that it is still there, she insists it will fall that day. But it doesn't, nor does it fall through the night nor the next day. Johnsy believes that the leaf stayed there to show how wicked she was, and that she sinned in wanting to die. She regains her will to live, and makes a full recovery throughout the day. In the afternoon, a doctor talks to Sue. The doctor says that Mr. Behrman has come down with pneumonia and, as there is nothing to be done for him, he is being taken to the hospital to be made comfortable in his final hours. A janitor had found him helpless with pain, and his shoes and clothing were wet and icy cold. The janitor couldn't figure out where he had been on that stormy night, though she had found a lantern that was still lit, a ladder that had been moved, some scattered brushes, and a palette with green and yellow colors mixed on it. "Look out the window, dear, at the last ivy leaf on the wall. Didn't you wonder why it never fluttered or moved when the wind blew? Ah, darling, it's Behrman's masterpiece - he painted it there the night that the last leaf fell." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_Leaf http://www.gutenberg.org/files/3707/3707-h/3707-h.htm#c20

The Lumber Room by Saki - British Reading - Short Story by H.H.Monroe - English Reading

The Lumber Room by Saki - British Reading - Short Story by H.H.Monroe - English Reading Listen to me reading the short story "The Lumber Room" by H.H.Monroe alias Saki. I have a British received pronunciation accent. The video also has the text on screen so that you can read along with me. There are also full English subtitles to this video. THE LUMBER ROOM by Saki - H.H.Monroe The children were to be driven, as a special treat, to the sands at Jagborough. Nicholas was not to be of the party; he was in disgrace. Only that morning he had refused to eat his wholesome bread-and-milk on the seemingly frivolous ground that there was a frog in it. Older and wiser and better people had told him that there could not possibly be a frog in his bread-and-milk and that he was not to talk nonsense; he continued, nevertheless, to talk what seemed the veriest nonsense, and described with much detail the colouration and markings of the alleged frog. The dramatic part of the incident was that there really was a frog in Nicholas’ basin of bread-and-milk; he had put it there himself, so he felt entitled to know something about it. The sin of taking a frog from the garden and putting it into a bowl of wholesome bread-and-milk was enlarged on at great length, but the fact that stood out clearest in the whole affair, as it presented itself to the mind of Nicholas, was that the older, wiser, and better people had been proved to be profoundly in error in matters about which they had expressed the utmost assurance. “You said there couldn't possibly be a frog in my bread-and-milk; there was a frog in my bread-and-milk,” he repeated, with the insistence of a skilled tactician who does not intend to shift from favourable ground. So his boy-cousin and girl-cousin and his quite uninteresting younger brother were to be taken to Jagborough sands that afternoon and he was to stay at home. His cousins’ aunt, who insisted, by an unwarranted stretch of imagination, in styling herself his aunt also, had hastily invented the Jagborough expedition in order to impress on Nicholas the delights that he had justly forfeited by his disgraceful conduct at the breakfast-table. It was her habit, whenever one of the children fell from grace, to improvise something of a festival nature from which the offender would be rigorously debarred; if all the children sinned collectively they were suddenly informed of a circus in a neighbouring town, a circus of unrivalled merit and uncounted elephants, to which, but for their depravity, they would have been taken that very day. A few decent tears were looked for on the part of Nicholas when the moment for the departure of the expedition arrived. As a matter of fact, however, all the crying was done by his girl-cousin, who scraped her knee rather painfully against the step of the carriage as she was scrambling in. “How she did howl,” said Nicholas cheerfully, as the party drove off without any of the elation of high spirits that should have characterised it. “She’ll soon get over that,” said the soi-disant aunt; “it will be a glorious afternoon for racing about over those beautiful sands. How they will enjoy themselves!” “Bobby won’t enjoy himself much, and he won’t race much either,” said Nicholas with a grim chuckle; “his boots are hurting him. They’re too tight.” “Why didn't he tell me they were hurting?” asked the aunt with some asperity. “He told you twice, but you weren't listening. You often don’t listen when we tell you important things.” “You are not to go into the gooseberry garden,” said the aunt, changing the subject. “Why not?” demanded Nicholas. “Because you are in disgrace,” said the aunt loftily. Nicholas did not admit the flawlessness of the reasoning; he felt perfectly capable of being in disgrace and in a gooseberry garden at the same moment. His face took on an expression of considerable obstinacy. It was clear to his aunt that he was determined to get into the gooseberry garden, “only,” as she remarked to herself, “because I have told him he is not to.” http://www.iswearenglish.com/ https://www.facebook.com/iswearenglish https://twitter.com/iswearenglish

Laura by Saki - British English Reading - Short Story.by H.H.Monroe - British English Pronunciation Listen to me reading the short story "Laura" by H.H.Monroe alias Saki. I have a British received pronunciation accent. The video also has the text on screen so that you can read along with me. There are also full English subtitles to this video. LAURA by H. H. MUNRO (“SAKI”) “You are not really dying, are you?” asked Amanda. “I have the doctor’s permission to live till Tuesday,” said Laura. “But to-day is Saturday; this is serious!” gasped Amanda. “I don’t know about it being serious; it is certainly Saturday,” said Laura. “Death is always serious,” said Amanda. “I never said I was going to die. I am presumably going to leave off being Laura, but I shall go on being something. An animal of some kind, I suppose. You see, when one hasn’t been very good in the life one has just lived, one reincarnates in some lower organism. And I haven’t been very good, when one comes to think of it. I’ve been petty and mean and vindictive and all that sort of thing when circumstances have seemed to warrant it.” “Circumstances never warrant that sort of thing,” said Amanda hastily. “If you don’t mind my saying so,” observed Laura, “Egbert is a circumstance that would warrant any amount of that sort of thing. You’re married to him—that’s different; you’ve sworn to love, honour, and endure him: I haven’t.” “I don’t see what’s wrong with Egbert,” protested Amanda. “Oh, I daresay the wrongness has been on my part,” admitted Laura dispassionately; “he has merely been the extenuating circumstance. He made a thin, peevish kind of fuss, for instance, when I took the collie puppies from the farm out for a run the other day.” “They chased his young broods of speckled Sussex and drove two sitting hens off their nests, besides running all over the flower beds. You know how devoted he is to his poultry and garden.” “Anyhow, he needn’t have gone on about it for the entire evening and then have said, ‘Let’s say no more about it’ just when I was beginning to enjoy the discussion. That’s where one of my petty vindictive revenges came in,” added Laura with an unrepentant chuckle; “I turned the entire family of speckled Sussex into his seedling shed the day after the puppy episode.” “How could you?” exclaimed Amanda. “It came quite easy,” said Laura; “two of the hens pretended to be laying at the time, but I was firm.” “And we thought it was an accident!” “You see,” resumed Laura, “I really have some grounds for supposing that my next incarnation will be in a lower organism. I shall be an animal of some kind. On the other hand, I haven’t been a bad sort in my way, so I think I may count on being a nice animal, something elegant and lively, with a love of fun. An otter, perhaps.” “I can’t imagine you as an otter,” said Amanda. “Well, I don’t suppose you can imagine me as an angel, if it comes to that,” said Laura. Amanda was silent. She couldn’t. “Personally I think an otter life would be rather enjoyable,” continued Laura; “salmon to eat all the year round, and the satisfaction of being able to fetch the trout in their own homes without having to wait for hours till they condescend to rise to the fly you’ve been dangling before them; and an elegant svelte figure—” “Think of the otter hounds,” interposed Amanda; “how dreadful to be hunted and harried and finally worried to death!” “Rather fun with half the neighbourhood looking on, and anyhow not worse than this Saturday-to-Tuesday business of dying by inches; and then I should go on into something else. If I had been a moderately good otter I suppose I should get back into human shape of some sort; probably something rather primitive—a little brown, unclothed Nubian boy, I should think.” “I wish you would be serious,” sighed Amanda; “you really ought to be if you’re only going to live till Tuesday.” As a matter of fact Laura died on Monday. “So dreadfully upsetting,” Amanda complained to her uncle-in-law, Sir Lulworth Quayne. “I’ve asked quite a lot of people down for golf and fishing, and the rhododendrons are just looking their best.” “Laura always was inconsiderate,” said Sir Lulworth; “she was born during Goodwood week, with an Ambassador staying in the house who hated babies.” https://www.iswearenglish.com/ https://www.facebook.com/iswearenglish https://twitter.com/iswearenglish
