It is now season three of the justly popular comedy-drama, which may look like escapist picture-postcard fluff – and to some extent is – but also boasts a riotous sense of humour, thanks to Simon Nye’s scripts. As we mosey back to 1930s Corfu, Larry (Josh O’Connor) is aghast at the reaction to his recent novel, but there’s a more urgent parenting problem for Louisa (Keeley Hawes) in the form of Leslie (Callum Woodhouse) and his complex love life.
When the second world war broke out, the National Gallery’s art collection was evacuated to Snowdonia. This performance piece reimagines the journey of the paintings, represented in human form. The elements range from classical to grime, ballet to the spoken word of Isaiah Hull. Its components are excellent – the music, venturing into immersive ambient techno, and the dancing of Bonetics among others. Whether it coheres is another matter, but do decide for yourself.
It is all hands on deck for this series finale. The closure of a nearby maternity home means Nonnatus House is overrun with expectant mothers in desperate need, just as news from the United States (it’s November 1963) rocks the wider community. This is all particularly tough for Sister Monica Joan, whose birthday celebrations must be put on hold.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
