A lovely programme - she wrote it so that explains her lovely little 'asides'. Second half is on this evening!

I had been going to post that jingle but I thought it was my warped sense of humour grin I only saw last nights but enjoyed it.

In India they use elephants to reach the top of the "bushes" as they are so high. In China, it's the traditional looking women with "cooly" type hats. Plants are waist high there.

Was very funny when Victoria fell down an irrigation channel! grin

No, but I remember sitting in primary school listening to a BBC radio programme (Home Service perhaps) called Travel Talks and looking at the accompanying booklet about growing tea in India. I never forgot that it was picked as two leaves and a bud. Perhaps I'll try to catch it tonight.

with Victoria Wood last night? Really good I thought. Did n' t realise the actual plants that Cphina and Indian tea come from were so different.

Tonight's continuation sounds good.
