    And with typical BBC programming 'Tales from the green valley' is being repeated on BBC4 7.30 -8pm also on Tuesday evenings. Not sure if tonight is the second or third episode.

    One can only hope that BBC Canada will pick it up! I would love to watch it!
    Sadly, our friend Vanessa, passed away 29th. February 2012.

    Life is brief. Time is a thief.

    Thanks! (Pity I don't have Foxtel.) There is a date in the top LHS of each post. I often don't look at them and sometimes get a shock about when things were posted. Is this what you mean?

    Each message on the forum includes the tme and date posted - look just above the name of the forum member. In this case, just above my name, you'll see [today/yersterday/23rd Spetember 2009 depending on when someone looks at it] and 9.08am.

    BBC2 are currently showing another programme based at the Acton Scott farm where 'The Victorian Farm' was filmed.
    It's a sort-of competition where each day two families (mum, dad, and two children) are given tasks to complete. Today the dads had to scythe hay, the mums had to make brooms, and the children had to make vegetable soup. It also showed the children carding wool, and the mums learning to spin it, ready for the 'weekly challenge' on Friday.
    It's a bit dumbed-down, as we are subjected to the inevitable recaps every five minutes, but you do learn little snippets about every-day life. In the kitchen today when the girls were making soup was Eve Goodman (daughter of Ruth), who appeared a couple of times in the Victorian Farm programme.
    The programme, called Escape in Time, is on BBC2, at 4.30 - 5.15pm, Monday - Friday, though there's a break next Thursday and Friday (15th and 16th July) when the British Open golf tournament is on. Twenty programmes in total in the series which began two days ago on Monday 5th July.

    Ruth Goodman meanwhile is also back on BBC in the 'Victorian Pharmacy'.
    Starts Thursday 15th July, 9pm for one hour, and there's four programmes in total.

    I just caught the end of it today, as I hadn't realised it was on! Very interesting though. I love these type of programmes.
