What’s this? Mary Berry at Highclere Castle? Could it be the Downton Abbey/Bake Off crossover that we’ve all been waiting for? Well, not quite, but it’s as close as we’re ever going to get. The first episode of Mary Berry’s Country House Secrets (BBC One), a four-part series that was Berry’s own idea, was something of a treat taking viewers behind the real-life doors and into the grand rooms that hosted Julian Fellowes’s global hit.
As we know from the Ladybird Book for Grown-Ups, a Mum has two very important jobs to do. One is to look after her children. The other is to do everything else as well. And so exhausted Julia (Anna Maxwell Martin in permanent grimace mode) was tested to her limits in the second episode of the mom-com, when she unwittingly became involved in that very special hell - the school fundraiser. “We need alcohol.
Movie Week is traditionally one of the most fun of the series. In previous years it has given us Kellie Bright’s out-of-this-world Star Wars Charleston, Jay McGuiness’s eye-popping Pulp Fiction jive, and the delight of Ed Balls in green face paint and a yellow suit for his smokin’ Mask routine. But can the remaining 14 duos match those memorable homages? Surely Susan Calman’s Wonder Woman samba and Gemma Atkinson’s Jungle Book Charleston will be contenders?
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".
