Another strange person I like on Tv is the historian with the wild hair...just looked her up Joann fletcher! I watched a series done by her on everyday life I ancient Egypt, she's a complete weirdo! but strangely watchable.

i enjoy the survival programmes as a bit of light Tv, Bear grills and Ray Mears, oh and recently the kangaroo Dundee programme, although Mike detested it.

My favourite night of the week,  'Call the Midwife' and 'Mr Selfridge'  Do you get them in Canada yet, Chris?

 

Yes, we do. I liked "Call the Midwife" but was not so keen on "Mr. Selfridge" for some reason. The second season has just started here. Someone mentioned "Inspector George Gently", we got it here and I thought it very good, but the last episode had a very ambiguous ending - were the Inspector and his Sergeant both killed? It certainly looked that way. I was quite stunned that it ended so abruptly.

Home is where the heart is.

I think the short answer Chris, is wait and see ......

I like this series as well - but then I've always liked Martin Shaw, and particularly as Judge John Deed.

Only watch as the blonde likes Nigel . Better news is that Beechgrove is back on the 3rd of April BBC2 Scotland or 6th BBC general ,proper gardeners  !

wave  We have a Community Garden down at our village hall which was done with the help of the Beechgrove Garden team about 11 years ago.  I was Head Teacher of the local school then, so was very much involved with the children doing a time Capsule and other projects.  It was a very exciting time with all the usual presenters visiting and working with residents in their gardens too.  The actual programme was great to watch.  Our garden is well loved and well cared for and is a lovely place to sit in peace.

They are just wonderful at these Community Gardens, Jim Mc Coll, who I absolutely adore, must be about 106 by now, he has been going for years, Bless him.laugh

On a sour note, just watched a Programme  called The Working Poor, by STV, absolutely awful, that people are working so hard and still not earning enough to get by.

I can confirm that.  I loved it there.

I'll try that again!
