Best programme of 2008
19 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I caught the 70's episode of this by accident, and was hooked at once.

The premise of the programme is the presenters eat foods of a certain era in history each week, and see the effect on their bodies.

The on screen partnership of Giles Coren and Sue Perkins crackles with energy,and I couldn't really imagine this working as well if it was anybody else presenting now that I've seen them doing it.

The other episodes that I have managed to see are the Regency and Restoration,but still holding out the hope of seeing the others at some stage.

In these days of trash TV, it's great to see the BBC producing a programme that is both entertaining, and educational.

What does surprise me, is the fact that you can't buy this programme on DVD, and the BBC have no plans to release it! It can't cost that much to produce a DVD of a programme that is already made, and I bet it would sell more units than some of the tripe that is released! If you haven't seen this programme, keep an eye open for any repeats, you won't be disappointed.
