    I’ll definitely watch Hottest Place on Earth! I think that will be very interesting and of course I like Kate Humble.
    I wonder if she is happy with the news of her new co-presenter on Springwatch?

    Aaaargh! I forgot about GW last weekend! At least there’s just enough time to catch up online.

    Have a great weekend!

      VP do watch it if you can. I know that this weeks will be of interest as you’ve mentioned vertical gardening in your blog.
      Thanks, you too! xx

  3. I loved the GW special last week with Carol. I do not understand why they didn’t pick her as head presenter. Of course I’m going to watch the special with Joe next Friday and I have already made a note about tonight’s programme in my tv guide.

    Mike I said it before and I’ll say it again, you’re better than the tv guide. πŸ˜‰

      Yolanda me too! It’s possible that she doesn’t want to do it, even if she’d been asked. I don’t think that it really makes that much difference who is head presenter.
      Many thanks for saying it again, and enjoy the weekend! xx

    Oh, has she lost Ben Vogle then? What’s he up to now?

    I’d be interested in that Hottest Place on Earth. Dallol, Death Valley, the Atacama, the Sahara – all these scary unearthly places we have on our own planet!

    P.S. have a good weekend

    Liv I presume that you mean Ben Fogle! He and Kate present Animal Park
    It’s Bill Oddie that she’s lost for Springwatch and Autumnwatch. Sadly it appears that the depression that he suffers from is really bad at the moment.
    Yes there are places that seem very alien!
    Thanks, you too! xx

    Oops, I was halfway to the German spelling of bird (Vogel). I wonder if that’s where his name originated…or at least Anglo Saxon being Germanic…
    I used to watch Animal Park.
