Frank Sinatra: Voice of the Century
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0 ... Episode_3/

The BBC is re-broadcasting its 13 part series on Frank Sinatra. Well worth a listen.
I am either ridiculously impressed with voice recognition or completely baffled.

"Dive Source SCUBA Watersports" Did you mean, Dinosaurs School for Watersports?

No. But please take me there, smartphone.

The Men Who Made Us Fat
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0 ... Episode_1/

I think this wasn't bad. The Omnivore's Dilemma does the story of corn better but the basic thing's interesting.

Around the world, obesity levels are rising. More people are now overweight than undernourished. Two thirds of British adults are overweight and one in four of us is classified as obese. In the first of this three-part series, Jacques Peretti traces those responsible for revolutionising our eating habits, to find out how decisions made in America 40 years ago influence the way we eat now.

Peretti travels to America to investigate the story of high-fructose corn syrup. The sweetener was championed in the US in the 1970s by Richard Nixon's agriculture secretary Earl Butz to make use of the excess corn grown by farmers. Cheaper and sweeter than sugar, it soon found its way into almost all processed foods and soft drinks. HFCS is not only sweeter than sugar, it also interferes with leptin, the hormone that controls appetite, so once you start eating or drinking it, you don't know when to stop.

Endocrinologist Robert Lustig was one of the first to recognise the dangers of HFCS but his findings were discredited at the time. Meanwhile a US Congress report blamed fat, not sugar, for the disturbing rise in cardio-vascular disease and the food industry responded with ranges of 'low fat', 'heart healthy' products in which the fat was removed - but the substitute was yet more sugar.

Meanwhile, in 1970s Britain, food manufacturers used advertising campaigns to promote the idea of snacking between meals. Outside the home, fast food chains offered clean, bright premises with tempting burgers cooked and served with a very un-British zeal and efficiency. Twenty years after the arrival of McDonalds, the number of fast food outlets in Britain had quadrupled.

Young, British and Broke: The Truth about Payday Loans
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0 ... day_Loans/

Half way through, I'm pretty anti-payday loan and this is the worst documentary ever if that's how you feel. They've managed to find the most unsympathetic people in Britain.

Other than that, standard relevant-celebrity presenter who was very publicly bankrupted a while ago but there's a serious lack of a problem with these people owing money.

True, but we sadly don't have a "Furious Masturbation" forum.

So when the class one eggs are in Waitrose and you cannot go there, you have a problem.

I'd be keen. But it says it excludes the 20th of December to the 6th of January, first thing under the fine print. Right? So I couldn't do that personally.

Beer and burger in Spoons was still about £5.50 in summer. It won't have gone up much, you'd think, so that's still a good deal. Also steak club, curry club, fish Friday. These will all still be reasonably good value, you'd think. And any other drinks we'd have will be cheaper in Spoons than almost anywhere else usually.
