    No, wokerati are people who use Chinese cooking implements.

    Thanks for the heads up about BBC Scotland and Roaming in the Wild. Found this on iplayer https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episod...doon-the-forth and it's on the list to watch tonight - cheers.
    Cheers Graham, hope you like it. Two lads having adventures with humour and also some profound comments. There are four or five episodes so far.

    University Challenge was an ITV programme - probably before your time

    Thanks for the heads up. That was absolutely great in a brilliantly Scottish way. Cameron McNeish does exactly the same type of campervan pootling and wilderness exploring that we love doing

    Call My Agent is truly wonderful if you love French cinema - so in the birth scene in Series 3 the music is Georges Delerue's Grand Choral from Francois Truffaut's marvellous La Nuit Americaine which everyone in France will have recognised.

    I don't get this Tom Moore thing.

    The BBC are all over it again, I've even had to turn BBC Radio Derby off.

    The truth is that his pushy family and a virtue signalling BBC have just gone overboard. He obviously had an ego and always wanted to be "on the telly" hence his appearance on Blankety Blank all those years ago.

    A number 1 record (what a fantastic contribution to music that was), a book, a knighthood, an RAF flypast and the Union Flag at half mast on Downing Street. And a load of past it celebs coming out of the woodwork for a bit of publicity on the back of him.

    Why not go the whole hog and have a State Funeral for him.

    We are living in very strange times.
