I am compiling a list of films and TV series I have watched, books I have read, and audio books or plays I have listened to.
I will likely make some comments to a fair amount of the entries in the list, some information on how or when I found the titles, whether I watched the film in the cinema or on video/DVD, whether the audio/books are purchased as downloads or on paper/tape/CD etc.

The satellite weighed about 83 kilograms and sent the beeps till the battery ran out.
Here is a sample of how the signal sounded :
