1. Paul Newman – worldtv.com/paulnewman
The world without Paul Newman is an emptier place. The screen legend epitomized “cool” for generations of film lovers but who according to those who knew him was a generous, caring and unpretentious man who shied away from the publicity of his global fame and instead used it on many occasions to help others. Survived by his wife of 50 years Paul Newman was a class act and a true gent.
2. Animes Streaming Net – worldtv.com/animes_streaming_.net
We came across this channel after seeing our super new WorldTV embeddable player on French Animation website animes-streaming.net The channel features a selection of Manga style cartoons in their original Japanese format but with French Subtitles for the more discerning french (or French speaking) animation aficionado.
3. Mr. Bean – worldtv.com/mr._bean
Hailing for the UK Mr Bean is a worldwide comedy phenomenon co written by and starring the inimitable Rowan Atkinson of Black Adder fame. Harking back to an age of silent comedy the buffoonery of Bean manages to amuse millions, passing unnoticed through cultural boundaries with its simple laughter evoking formula. Mr Bean described by Atkinson is “a child in a grown man’s body”
Karma Sutra – worldtv.com/kama_sutra
An informative instructional guide to the ancient Indian practice of Kama Sutra tastefully put together in a respectful and salubrious manner that avoids any cheap tricks..
Steve Reich – worldtv.com/steve_reich

After a small dose of sunshine my batteries are recharged and Toby’s Choice is back with a basket of goodies for your continued viewing pleasure. This weeks selection includes popular music channels from our users around the world, for your eyes and ears only.
1. The Beatles TV – worldtv.com/the_beatles_tv
Not much can be added about the Fab Four that hasn’t already been said many times over, so i’m not going to harp on about how genius they are, except to say I still feel sorry for the original drummer Pete Best and what were they thinking in that photo..
2. Pink Floyd – worldtv.com/pink_floyd
A tip of the hat to Richard Wright, keyboardist and one of the founding members of Pink Floyd who passed way this week. Wright met fellow Floyders Roger Waters and Nick Mason at college and joined their early band, Sigma 6. Along with the late Syd Barrett, the four formed Pink Floyd in 1965 and to this day Pink Floyd remain one of the best known bands in the world.
3. Super 80′s – worldtv.com/super_80′s
The 80′s is the new 70′s depending on your date of birth and I imagine the 90′s will be the new 80′s quite soon, the rule of thumb seems to be that a 2 decade gap makes something cool again… Anyway before i digress further, this is another 80′s Music channel packed full of classics from the decade of Big Hair and warpaint like makeup..
Alaska Report – worldtv.com/alaskareport
I stumbled upon this channel last week and was ever so gently drawn into watching the various clips of folksy, Irish influenced music. Not normally my cup of tea but the musicianship and feel good factor won me over.
Kiss Television – worldtv.com/kiss_television
Rock Ballads for me are an acoustic version of wading through a field of treacle but there are some guilty pleasures here and personally speaking its one of those “so bad its good” scenarios! I’m sure we’ve all clenched a fist and sung a lyric or two to a few of the videos in this channel, lets just keep it between ourselves though shall we..
More to come next week as always you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions, go on, i dare you..

1. Juan Manuel Fangio – worldtv.com/juan_manuel_fangio
Juan Manuel Fangio was the best driver ever to come out of Argentina and was the dominant force in the yearly ears of Formula One. Watch this channel for some classic rubber burning footage from those glorious racing days where technological superiority was second to raw driving talent.
2. Isaac Hayes – worldtv.com/isaac_hayes
Isaac Hayes RIP best known for his “Theme to Shaft” has left this building for funk Nirvana and will be missed for his crazy suits, deep undertones and song writing, especially for lyrics like “he’s a complicated man, no-one understands him but his woman,,,” Genius!
3. Chè Guevara – worldtv.com/che_guevara
Ernesto Che Guevara has been a global icon for 50 years with the image to the left being one of the most used and recognized images of our generation. A fascinating man for his dedication and harsh execution of his beliefs and a staple t-shirt for any discerning student. (Him and Bob Marley..)
worldtv.com/Turntablism starts with a documentary on the artistry of Turntablism = A DJ, 2 x Decks and a Mixer, a subject close to my heart. Some great music, history and incredible deck wrecking scratch skills from the best of the best.
worldtv.com/documentarytv A cracking channel from Canada which, in the interests of research of course, had me watching for perhaps longer than i should on a working day! Documentaries about our Planet and Philosophy.
worldtv.com/ilove80s_tv This channel was created in Chile and is pop tastical 80′s music at it very best or worst depending on your musical leaning.. After a flick through I found a couple of tracks i love: Wang Chung – Dance Hall Days and Gary Numan – Cars.
