One new TV series that’s worth a mention is Stephen Fry in America. The first programme 1/6. The New World was shown last Sunday evening on BBC1 and is being shown again Saturday on BBC2 at 7.10pm. The second in the series is on Sunday BBC1 at 9.00pm. Maureen on her excellent Brilliant Britain blog did this review entry, with related links, which tells you all about it.
Starting this evening on C4 at 8.00pm is River Cottage Autumn in which Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall harvests and cooks the best that autumn has to offer. This first of four programmes is being repeated Saturday C4 at 7.00pm.
Last Sunday I mentioned that it was LAPCPADPOUB day, and Yolanda, not surprisingly, really went to town with her entry! She also made this comment on my entry, and in response to her challenge I have found this purrfect poem by Brian Patten in his book of children’s poety Juggling with Gerbils.
Itchy Cat by Brian Patten
Itchy cat, itchy cat where have you been?
To Buckingham Palace to sniff the Queen.
Itchy cat, itchy cat why do that?
Because I was chasing a right royal rat.
But I was polite and I said please,
And I came home with superior fleas.
Have a good weekend!
