  • The Art Of Germany coming to BBC Four in autumn 2010. I'm hoping that this is become a life mission for Andrew Graham Dixon, like my local art gallery visits and there'll be a series about every country in the world. I'm hoping we'll see The Art of Denmark at least. Or The Art of Trinidad and Tobago. http://ff.im/-gaTPM

  • Liberal Democrats propose guaranteed BBC production quota for radio indies http://ff.im/-g268x

  • TV Repairs. Yes, this is exactly how it was. It's surprising that with the increased price of decent flat-screen televisions, rental shops haven't flourished again. http://ff.im/-g24ja

  • Production Management Assistantt, Sarah Jane Adventures at BBC Wales. We already knew that show had been commissioned, but it's rare that we see this kind of tangible proof. http://ff.im/-g0Wj0
