Saturday Night Fry
WHy isn't there any inclusion of Jim Broadbent's participation in 'Saturday Night Fry' with Stephen Fry? MisterQuickly 20:20, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
A Sense of History
Why is there no mention of Jim Broadbent's hilarious 1992 short film, "A Sense of History"? Please see http://www.broadbent.org/jim_broadbent/films/sense_of_history.htm. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hwalped (talk • contribs) 04:45, 21 September 2010 (UTC)
Re: "Why is there no mention..."
Do any Wikipedians know whether Jim Broadbent is related to the film producer Graham? I haven't been able to find any evidence either way. If anyone finds any it might be good to include a reference to any relationship in the entries for both Jim and Graham - even if it's just to say that they're not related. Thanks!
- There isn't a need to add non-relationship to WP articles, except only when it might be reasonable to assume two subjects might be confused as the same person, which is unlikely here. Acabashi (talk) 12:20, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
Both the Career section and the Filmography claim that Broadbent had his film debut in Porridge in 1978. I have just changed the link in both cases from Porridge (the oatmeal foodstuff) to Porridge (film). However, there's something still not right, as the film was released in 1979. Was he in actually not in the film, but in Porridge (TV series)? – although, if so, the last series of that was broadcast in 1977. I've failed to find evidence either way, so over to somebody else.

- Good catch all around. I checked multiple places and could not find him listed in the cast for either the TV series or the film. It is always possible that he was standing in the background somewhere in the film ala Robbie Coltrane in Britannia Hospital but we would need a source. I have removed the mentions from both sections of the article until references can be provided. Thanks for your attention to detail. MarnetteD | Talk 19:45, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
Why is the fact that he declined the award of Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 2002 been repeatedly deleted from his entry? This deletion is extremely rude!
- Because per WP:BLP any information like this requires a verifiable reliable source for it to be included in the article and, as yet, neither you or anyone else has provided such. MarnetteD | Talk 20:00, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
The source for the note that he was atheist came from this link ((http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/3668118/Jim-Broadbent-the-heartbreak-kid.html)) but it seems quite irrelevant given that it was a comment made in passing. Does every biography note that the person is theist, atheist, agnostic, or some combination thereof? Doubtful. When notable, it should be noted; when non-notable, it seems irrelevant.
