Have you got my number Ray...Number10tv goes online

Reading Time:

So [Number10 has gone online](http://www.number10.gov.uk) with a [wordpress powered website ](http://puffbox.com/2008/08/12/new-number10-site-goes-live/)and a brightcove powered TV channel [number 10tv](http://www.number10.gov.uk/number-10-tv). It’s all flickr and community orientated. Looks good.

With my video head on I’m very excited as they have obviously gone for the TV-format approach. Whilst the TV does series from a Zoo and a wildlife park, Number 10TV does ‘Kestrel Rescue’

Cue exciting music and last minute errands of mercy all held together with Gordon Brown doing his best Rolf Harris Animal hospital routine?

No. Cue this (listen to the sound)

So, Ray. Are you sure you have the number? ‘Cos it’s changed.

History lesson.

Wife? Check.
I also enjoyed the[ feature on Winston Churchill](http://www.number10.gov.uk/history-and-tour/prime-ministers-in-history/winston-churchill). I particularly like the section on wife. Yes he had one and she was “tall, stately and handsome” which I’m sure is a description that would earn you a slap, even in polite society.

Given the tone of the section I think Number10 have inadvertantly raised the veracity of wikipedia as a source.
