British Motors magazine #1

Post by tanuki » Mon May 11, 2015 12:35 pm

For the french enthusiastics ... a new monthly magazine appeared this May at the Newsagent :shock:
Le Magazine des Belles Mecaniques Anglaises ... tout un programme :lol:

See what happens :wink:

Cheers,
Fred

[ EDIT: not a monthly magazine after all ... the next issue is expected in 3 months :wink: ]

Oh aye, 'appen. Just like you ;)
And proud of it.
If we had a referendum for home rule in Yorkshire we wouldn't cock it up like the Scots did.

That reminds me that I have the whole series waiting for me to watch :shock: Where did I put those DVDs :? :lol: ?
I used to watch Hale & Pace - and record on VHS ! - when the show appeared for the first time on a french TV,
I love it ... and there was an australian show in a similar style: Fast Forward :mrgreen:
Still searching for Slattery & McShane on DVD, but no luck so far ...
at least I ordered Whose Line is it Anyway ? as per your recommendations in another thread ... thanks for that :D
Cheers, Fred

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Just to get a little back on topic, the magazine cover is confusing. Is this printed entirely in French or what? Only being the Welsh xenophobe that I am I can't be doing with anything foreign! (Including the English! :wink: :w )

I am afraid that it is 99.99 % printed in french :oops:
There is an attempt at giving it some english flavour in the titles of the articles ...
One of the sections is entitled 'The Adress' - with just 1 'd' as in french :lol: - ... so they still have to work on it :wink:

Anyway, 100 pages every three months (I first thought it was a monthly because the issue is stamped 'Mai 2015')
with 12 articles in this first issue plus 'news' and 'purchase guide' ... taken out the pages of advertisement, each article is
roughly 6 to 10 pages, which is not bad compared to other publications. Time will tell if readers are attracted :wink:

Cheers,
Fred
