    Our TV is set up with a Series Link to the programme, so whenever any are on, whatever channel, it picks them up and records them. Have been watching a few old ones lately that I'm sure we have seen, but couldn't remember them.

    We've recorded Judi Dench's Wild Borneo Adventure. Have watched one so far - think there are only two.

    And me!
    Could it be due to the mass unemployment among celebrities due to to lockdown? Sudden availability?
    Or am I just an old cynic?

    This has just been advertised on tv. It starts at 9pm on BBC1 on Tuesday 12th October.

    Episode 1: Josh Widdicombe
    Summary
    New series. Comedian Josh Widdicombe embarks on a roller-coaster ride through his extraordinary family history. After a less than promising start with an ancestor who was cut out of the family fortune, Josh is delighted to discover a courtier with very personal access to King Charles I. From there it's back to Elizabethan and Tudor nobility and a royal love triangle.

    Ah got you now. Had to google it. Can't say I'd ever heard of The Last Leg, I had only ever seen Josh on QI.

    Highlight of my week, The Last Leg. I'm so tired after a week of childcare though, I always doze off towards the end. :confused:

    Looking forward to Josh.
