Opinion PUBLISHED: 11:08 19 April 2019 Andrew Clarke Cary Grant in North By Northwest. What would you do if your online film collection disappeared over night? Photo: MGM Bob Dylan sang: ‘The Times They Are-A-Changin’ and that is certainly true of digital technology but for book lovers, music and film enthusiasts, it seems that life on a ‘cloud’ is not always for the better Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth Bennett and Colin Firth as Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice. How would you feel if the complete works of Jane Austen, that you had paid for, were simply deleted by an online host who simply wanted to clear space? Photo: BBCIt'll be no surprise to anyone if I observe that life is steadily moving online. Both professionally and personally we seem to be living a 'digital' existence.

MEGHAN Markle plans to hire an American nanny to care for her baby and has not ruled out drafting a male MANNY into the Royal household, it has been reported.

A source said that Meghan and husband Prince Harry have not ruled out the possibility of hiring a male child carer to look after their first born.

They would also be interviewed by Harry and "strong-willed" Meghan.

A DESPERATE family have issued a plea to find a "Nanny McPhee" tutor to take on their "nightmare" kids - after seven have quit. They have put out an ad for a £100-an-hour position for a no-nonsense Mary Poppins-type to blow in from the east to whip their children into shape - who must be prepared for pranks and fighting. Since 2016 the Birmingham-based family have lost multiple tutors, with one describing the two girls and twin boys as "the devil reincarnated". But whoever takes on the challenge of teaching the kids - aged five, seven and 11 - will take home a tidy paycheck for their efforts. They reference Nanny McPhee in their advert on Tutor House - a nanny who instils discipline in the children she comes to care for, who have run off all their past nannys with bad behaviour.

BBC's hit car show Top Gear has been in Mansfield filming for its forthcoming series. The new trio of Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff, Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris were joined by a number of professional racing drivers to race a circuit right around Mansfield's town centre. The 'Le Mansfield' race, taking its name from well known circuit 'Le Mans' in France, started in Mansfield's Market Place before making its way down Quaker Way, round onto St John's Street and onto West Gate, where the racers then did a short lap of the market square before restarting the lap. The event was held 'under closed doors' in the sense that residents were alerted about a number of road closures and informed that there was a 'secret event', however very little people had been informed that the Top Gear filming crews would arrive on Mansfield's streets.According to a security guard working on the event, the task for the racers was to see "how many laps of the Mansfield circuit they can do in 24 … [Read more...] about BBC’s Top Gear film race around Mansfield town centre
