I had hopes for the programmes about continents. Watching them one after
another on the media player *really* shows up the poverty of the content.
They could have done all three shows in one half hour programme.
The worst was a recent series on geology (can't remember the programme
title). All the 'useful' bits (graphs etc) were shown in short bursts

I turned on the TV at 3am about a week ago and there were some back to
back "arts" programmes. I don't know who the presenter was but she
elevated patronising to a new art form.
I turned off when I realised that there was no hope for me when I
thought the abstract work painted by a genius looked as though someone
had vomited on a canvas. .

Yep we do things right 'cos we can.
I rather take exception to the notion that anyone who engages in DIY has

We would find some of your d-i-y disasters hilarious, no doubt, knowing
what we know. But you won't find disasters on here.
