Meanwhile, looking out of my window as I work on my Fujitsu presentation for London this week, there's little doubt that October has arrived and in a few short weeks it will be dark in time for Halloween and the BBC evening news.
I'm particularly disappointed in Andrew Marr's BBC History of the World at the moment, described by one newspaper review as a mix of 'Mangled Wreck' and 'Hollywood Schlock'. I had hoped that an ambitious production of this kind would be up to the highest BBC standards but instead discovered the childrens' 'Horrible Histories' pays rather more attention to historical detail and fact. I was so annoyed yesterday that I turned it off after forty minutes as I couldn't bear to watch his trite and very-much 'dumbed-down' account of the Persian Wars and the campaigns of Alexander the Great any longer. This kind of production the BBC should leave firmly to Michael Wood and concentrate instead on East Enders and Holby City.
