The wonder of Williams

In which G.M. Norton thanks a different white-bearded man for making his childhood.


Whenever I hear the theme tune for Indiana Jones, it fills me up with the most glorious feeling of happiness and excitement.

The same goes for Star Wars and the Christopher Reeve Superman films.
Now, what do all these have in common? The composer for all of these wonderful films and more is one John Williams.

Review: Bow ties from Glass and Bow

In which G.M. Norton tests out the most practical bow ties known to man.


Bow ties are usually made from silk, providing a little luxury for a chap.

But what if that chap wanted to celebrate reaching the summit of Everest clad in a bow tie? A silk bow tie is too delicate for such a task.
Thankfully, we now have a solution. Ladies and gentlemen, please give it up for Glass and Bow, inventors of the first waxed cotton bow ties.

Hair we go again

In which G.M. Norton reflects on being bereft of hair and the reaction it’s received.


Well, it’s now one whole week since I revealed my bold (or should that be ‘bald’?) new look.
It’s been quite a change for your favourite protagonist so I thought it was only right to document what the reaction has been from people and how I’m feeling now I’m hairless. Well, on the top of my head, at least.
