Sitting here coughing, sneezing and wheezing, I’m really looking forward to feeling better and also a new series staring on BBC1 on Sunday night called Michael Palin: Himalaya.
I’ve enjoyed all the other series that Michael has fronted so far and nothing sounds better to me than good old Mick hoofing it around the Himalayas getting to know the yokels. Maybe even an exclusive interview with the Yeti, then again, maybe not, but even without a tall hairy monster, it will still make for some very interesting telly. The BBC obviously think they’re on a winner and are already flogging it here.
Paul Hudson, on Look North, our local news & weather programme was, I’m sure, touting a new DVD of his called Extreme Weather which is about unusual weather in the Yorkshire area over the years. I can’t find any mention of it on the BBC web site though, maybe I’m starting with some kind of hallucinating syndrome. If anyone else saw this DVD waving about in Paul Hudson’s hand, can you let me know so I can cancel the appointment with my therapist.
