Engineers with the British National Grid have found a symptom of the fragmented TV audience - the end of huge surges of electrical use after popular shows.
The 1990 World Cup semi-final between England and Germany set an all-time record of 2,800 megawatts as more than one million people turned on their electric kettles at the same time after the game, The final episode of "The Thorn Birds," a mini-series starring Richard Chamberlain that aired in Britain in 1984, is a close second at 2,600 megawatts.

HAPPY 74th BIRTHDAY Richard!

"Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?" at the Berkshire Theatre Festival is now cancelled. Jan Maxwell got a lead role in a Broadway musical so pulled out of the project.

Richard will be celebrating his 74th birthday on Monday March 31.

This month is the 10th Anniversary of the first Richard Chamberlain website to appear on the Internet.
March 1998 saw the launch of the Richard Chamberlain Website.
Before it's creation there was virtually no information about Richard Chamberlain on the Internet. This website, created by me, was the first source to list Richard's correct birth date, 31 March 1934. All other references listed it as being the 31 March 1935. It was until Richard's autobiobraphy was released in 2003 that others corrected the error.

Richard and Martin

Richard and Martin attended the Starlight Ball at the Honolulu Academy of Arts.

Richard's film "Strength And Honour" is looking unlikely to get a general cinema release in the U.K. so you will have to wait until the DVD comes out later this year to see it.

Richard's film "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry" is released on DVD Region 2 (U.K. & Europe) on the 14 January 2008. It is available on both DVD and the new HD DVD format.
