It's Friday, it's 5 to 5 and it's Crackerjack
One of the above is correct. I'm just a little over-excited being back in Eddie's chair once again - though the goody cupboard was disappointingly empty this morning. Am consoling myself with aniseed balls having run out of liquorice whirls.
We've been pondering this great headline in the Telegraph: " Fans accuse BBC of watering down their Porridge". Some eagle -eyed fans of the seventies sitcom have accused the beeb of removing a line of dialogue that could be offensive to homosexuals. We're trying to find out from the BBC press office whether the accusation is true, but in the meantime Julia has booked Christopher Biggins , who played the camp chef in the series , to talk to us live. Just made us wonder if there are some people who sit watching old programmes like this with scripts in their laps, or have they watched them so many times they think they know every line of dialogue.
Much concern in the office this morning........one of our producers, Sarah , is getting married tomorrow (Altogether now, AH). In the Lake District. Will the road and rail disruption caused by today's floods abate, and allow the invitees to travel up there? We need to know.
Anyway, nice to be back with you ...... speak again later,
