The trailers for this look quite good so I'll be recording it. I likes architecture. :)


DOCUMENTARY: Dan Cruickshank: At Home with the British
On: BBC 4 HD (106)
Date: Thursday 19th May 2016 (starting in 34 minutes)
Time: 21:00 to 22:00 (1 hour long)

The Cottage.
From medieval cottages and Victorian terraces to high-rise flats, in this series Dan Cruickshank looks at the place familiar to all - home. Everyone would love to live in a cottage. It is the national fantasy - thatch on the roof, roses over the door, fire in the grate. Dan is in Stoneleigh in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside, a village that has barely changed in 500 years, its cottages perfectly preserved. But even better, there is a treasure trove of documents in the local abbey which reveal centuries of daily life in extraordinary detail. Whether it is the pub owner fined for serving poor beer, the widow told to pay for her new home with her best chicken, or the first glass windows in the village, this film charts the cottage's transformation from humble medieval hovel to modern dream home.

Missed Cruikshank, was watching Paxman in Brussels.

I'll find it on catch up.

Let them eat rich, expensive, funny-shaped, yellow, eggy buns.

I had to watch on iPlayer as my PVR somehow missed recording it. Well worth the watch I thought. :)

Good thing he went to the right village, Stoneleigh in Surrey is a shithole.

The best facial is a daily facial.
