    We don't have one in London but I do in Brum. Today I've watched a programme about social history [OK, nothing profound, but still...] one about rare breeds of sheep, one about the possible real-life setting of Thornton Hall in Jane Eyre, a programme about sea mammals and - best of all for me - a programme about 'deadly predators' in Palawan, in the Philippines. Been there, loved that.
    Wow! I've learnt such a lot. Nothing that won't sink to the bottom of my silt-covered brain, but even so...

  2. A day of repeats for me - The Queen, Joanna Lumley on the Nile, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
    The only thing I learned, or re-learned, was that the Nile was only relatively recently discovered to be the longest river in the world, 2006.

    I did re-learn that the Nile was only officially the longest river since 2006. Perhaps that's why I still sometimes think it's the Amazon.
