Spirit in the Sky
Friday 21 July 1995
Sky television is much maligned. There it is, happily bouncing electrons off a great hunk of metal in the sky in a marvel of technological efficiency, and all people can comment on is how rubbish the programming is. Well, it's simply not true. This Sunday, for instance, sees a truly unique version of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (4pm Sky One), co-starring none other than the British answer to Clytemnestra, the exquisite Elizabeth Hurley (above). The episode was filmed in 1992 - happier times for Liz, when the many-headed dragon of fame was not yet scorching her perfectly- formed eyebrows with its flame-hot breath - and has Hurley impersonating a young suffragette who works on the buses. She and the 16-year-old Indy fall in love, but it all ends in tears when Indy is called up to serve in the Belgian army. That's right: the Belgian army. Too spooky for words, or what? And as if that weren't enough excitement for a Sunday afternoon, the evening's episode of Beverly Hills 90210 has exclusive footage of the Rolling Stones playing live at the Los Angeles Rose Bowl on their Voodoo Lounge Tour. The whole programme, which the uninitiated may have thought was something to do with the trials and tribulations of teenage education (no!), follows a bunch of terminally unhip kids as they anticipate the wrinkly rockers' gig, and then go to it. Watch those teenagers dancing along to Mick and Keef, and then die of sheer pleasure.
