Norfolk's Sheringham Shantymen

Adrian and Christine were joined by the comedian Bobby Ball.

Many of Britain's remaining Art Deco cinemas are being targeted by property developers. Lucy Siegle told us more.

  Hector the dogIt's ham, but not as you might know it. Jay Rayner looked at the processes behind making reformed meat. And Jay's tasty treat tip for the weekend is... cockles!

Arthur Smith spent the night aboard the HMS Victory to learn more about the ship, the crews and Horatio Nelson.

Norfolk's Sheringham Shantymen (pictured above) sang a sea shanty.

Mike Dilger and Miranda Krestovnikoff concluded their week looking for Britain's Best animals with a search for a super swimmer.

All week you've been sending in your plonker pet photos, from dopey dogs to brainless birds.

Plonker pet Hector (pictured above), a Norfolk terrier, was chosen to be our Local Legend of the week.

    Bobby Ball, now this should be fun as long as he can get a word in, I always remember laughing at his stupid antics in the 70s.
    Do we need to discuss reformed meat at his time of evening, I am looking forward to my spam fritters, chips , beans and a cuppa.

    MartinJ, I would KILL for a spam fritter, haven't had one for 30 years or more. I am sure the scaremongers are lurking on their starting blocks ready to leap into action and inform us all of the fact you are likely to drop off the twig within minutes of eating processed meats, let alone frying them, lol. Cannot agree with you re Bobby Ball, annoying little twit!

    Why waste money buying added water in ham? Ham with no added water is readily available.

    The ham shown being sliced was obviously well overcooked.

    By David Derbyshire

    Fresh fears were raised over GM crops yesterday after a study showed they can cause liver and kidney damage.

    According to the research, animals fed on three strains of genetically modified maize created by the U.S. biotech firm Monsanto suffered signs of organ damage after just three months.

    The findings only came to light after Monsanto was forced to publish its raw data on safety tests by anti-GM campaigners.

    We have an Art Deco cinema that is in tact in our town, but out of use. The interior was featured in 'Who Killed Rodger Rabbit', as it is so special, yet it's future still hangs in doubt, despite local people attempting to save it. It'll be a crying shame if it does not get renovated and used as it should be.

    As was mentioned in last night's Question Time, the footballer should have only been on the end of a managerial decision (brought about by his off-field activities) if it resulted in adverse effects within the team ,due to the connection of one of the girls with another teammate. Interesting that the Daily Mail journalist shot herself in the foot on QT when she contradicted herself, sating that her rag published such salacious material to sell copies.

    May be they should ask John Tery's misses to come on the show, that would be interesting as long as she is notaccompanied by Max whats his name, you know the PA man who makes money out so called C rated celebs that **** up thier lives. Thinking about it I bet he is on TOS next week, have you noticed he has not been seen for a while.

    Re #32: sky_viewer,

    What Melanie Phillips actually said was that anything in a newspaper is put there with the object of selling that newspaper. Which should be pretty obvious when you stop to think about it bearing in mind that newspapers are a business.

    Consequently. I do not understand why you believe that she shot herself in the foot.

    Was the Daily Mail the only newspaper that carried stories about JT's love life?

    I'm not a regular viewer but it was during this episode of The One Show that I turned on the TV and I could hear Adrian + Christine but onscreen was a photo of a man's head and shoulders. I waited for the image to disappear but it didn't so I changed to another channel and when I returned to BBC1, the image had gone.

    Nobody else seems to have seen this but, believe me, I didn't imagine it. Surely I wasn't the only viewer to see this?
