I’ve recently started following Crap Taxidermy on Twitter coz the pictures are normally worth a giggle (tho the captions can be a bit hit & miss for me).
TV I’ve set recording this week:
- Britain’s Park Story – repeat of a Dan Cruickshank programme about Britain’s public parks.
- The Birth of Empire: The East India Company – two part series presented by Dan Snow.
- The First Georgians: The German Kings Who Made Britain – three part series presented by Lucy Worsley.
