Rick Stein's India

Rick's culinary odyssey celebrating the tastes and people of India continues from Monday evening with some tasty extra morsels from episode three. The chef travels deeper into the wetland system around India’s longest lake Vembanad. Here aquatic life is key and the surrounding communities make their living from the bounty that thrives under the lake's calm surface. In this Red Button extra Rick visits Vaidhay’s eatery, a small café for workers that is minutes from the lake. Here lunchtimes are sacred and Rick observes the cooks making the café's speciality dish, a mouth-watering clam masala.

    Perhaps, at events like Glastonbury,you the BBC,should show the real festival & send camera crews around the festival though out the day,to show the people at home,what it is really like. To soak up the atmosphere & see all the other wierd & wonderful people,stalls,statues & music,that is at this amazing event.
    This could be shown though the day on bbc3 & bbc4. instead of just nothing,as both channels aren't active til 7pm.

    We get a Brit on POLE POSITION for the first time in years in Moto GP (well done Cal Crutchlow) and the BBC are NOT going to show the race.........................................unbelievable, I'm gutted!

    Oh, there's plenty of "ping-pong on grass" and some dope smokers at Glastonbury if that's your bag........so thats okay then?

    This is rubbish! I'm a virgin customer and i do not have a HD package, but BBC instead of showing the Confederations Cup Italy v Uraguy on normal channel, or even on Red Button, you put it on Red Button HD which i cant get. But as another user said, i can watch Glastonbury and Tennis. What a joke! Do a job properly!

    I have Sky and also do not have HD. I was looking forward to watching the game at 5PM only the BBC red button is not showing it. Now I find out its on the BBC HD channel red button. This is very disappointing because there is a great many people who don't have HD.
