Mis-managed my sleep and fell asleep during a worthy programme on the Lake District; imagine my confusion waking up to “All Aboard! The Canal Trip” – soundtrack of babbling water to pictures of a journey along a canal.
Of course, it’s better than that, and I missed its initial broadcast (just before the election) when the reviews came out. The Independent reviewed the reviews – with the mix of “boring” and innovative.
It’s unrealistic cos you don’t hear the boat – and so this sensation of low-level flying is developed; a kind of flying that seems faster than the actual 8 miles covered in 2 hours in a single unedited shot.
I enjoy this BBC tv quiz series anyway, but this episode was special as I have met one of the contestants. Indeed, its transmission has been in my diary, and was rewarded when my acquaintance / facebook friend won the quiz with “Euphonium”.
The first three rounds are usually good, with the answer to one of the questions in this episode being “Deal au Noh Deal”. I find the fourth round (missing vowels) undermines the effort made in the previous three.
The famous 1945 victory, cited recently as potential inspiration to win again on a radical programme, here remarked upon on BT website.
Article makes enjoyable reading.
Mistake the article makes is to ignore how the experience of the war – people being more equal in action and having confidence in planning working – were important. Social changes rather than a simple commitment to a welfare state.
