Cathy Silvers, the daughter of American comedy actor Phil Silvers, had moist eyes and a lump in her throat as she affectionately remembered her father during what was otherwise a hilarious night at the BFI South Bank to celebrate the first-ever DVD release of the entire Sgt. Bilko TV series. Why hilarious? Well the packed house rocked with laughter at the short extracts from the classic 1950s series selected by Michael Clews and Steve Everitt of The Phil Silvers Appreciation Society. Each showed master sergeant Ernest G. Bilko in fine form as he connived, bluffed and gambled his way through treasured snippets from a sampling of 140-plus episodes of television gold.

Bluesound is expanding its multiroom range to include a soundbar model that supports networked hi-res audio streaming with MQA compatability. The Bluesound Pulse Soundbar will sell for £1,000 when it arrives in November, placing it in the high-end 'bar bracket alongside the likes of Samsung's HW-K950, DALI's Kubik One and Yamaha's top-line YSP models. Able to turn a TV setup into another multiroom zone, the Pulse Soundbar uses a six-strong driver array (arranged in a stereo config), with each custom-designed unit supported by a dedicated amplifier channel. There are also two additional passive radiators. While natively two-channel, the onboard Dolby decoding chip that handles downmixing will, HCC has discovered, by enabled by a future firmware to allow the 'bar to decode surround sound signals and output to linked Pulse speakers.

If you want to spruce up your home audio and give money to a good cause at the same time, then Tivoli Audio's Model 10+ BBC Children in Need DAB radio could be the answer.    Available to order online from   http://tivoliaudio.co.uk/cin/, the DAB/DAB+/FM table radio was designed by competiton winner David Hampson. It retails at £199, with £50 from each radio sold benefiting the BBC Children in Need charity. Tivoli Audio is taking no profits from sales.   The competition to find the winning fundraising design was hosted by the Today programme. The outer cover of the radio was meticulously designed to a brief inspired by New Broadcasting House at Portland Place. HCC's own effort, which tried to incorporate Children in Need mascot Pudsey's face in the speaker grille, never got passed the doodle-on-a-napkin stage.   BBC Children in Need’s vision is that every child in the UK has a 'safe, happy and secure childhood'. And you can't argue with that. The live appeal show is on BBC One HD tonight from 7.30pm.
