A jolly 10 minutes .....
25 November 2006 | by welshNickSee all my reviews

A weekly trip through the British newspapers hosted by a different journalist each week. This is always very good value and normally has a good fast pace. The best part of this show is the reading out of the stories by various people which is interspersed with comments from the host. This must be one of the longest running programs anywhere in the world having started in 1956 !!!! It is a good 10 minute watch and really should be 20 minutes and have a better slot rather than teatime on BBC2. Do try and watch this - very good for a quick laugh. I have heard similar things on the radio but this is even better particularly if there has been a good political scandal ..... (When hasn't there been ?!?)
