    The Arthurian legends are ripe with tales of magic and prophecy, love and hate, courage and adventure. They have a large cast of exciting characters and enduring narratives.

    As such, using them as a basis for ideas is a storyteller's dream. For centuries, every generation has had their own version...

    The Foods That Make Billions is a fascinating three-part series, which grabbed my attention as it goes directly to the core issues which affect the development of markets for branded products from a very practical viewpoint.

    I'm a senior lecturer in retail management and this new series is valuable...

    So, hello blog readers. Does that make you blogees? I like that, I'm going with that whether it's a word or not. The peeps at the BBC website thought you might want to know what goes in the making of a sitcom, so here goes it - an insight in to how my year pans out when making Miranda.

    The writing is...

    Well where do you begin to tell a story like this? It's been the most amazing summer of my life travelling back in time for Turn Back Time - The High Street.

    First the Victorian era. We had an absolute shock when we first walked into Shepton Mallet market square. I felt really proud to see our name...

    The Indian Doctor is about Prem Sharma, and his wife, Kamini, who arrive in Britain in the summer of 1963. Rather than the bright lights of London, they are posted to a small Welsh mining village, taking over from the previous doctor there, who has unexpectedly passed away.

    There, they encounter the...

  6. Garrow's Law: The original courtroom drama

    Tony Marchant Tony Marchant

    Garrow's Law is a show that I love and am very proud of. I've loved dramatising the trials to make history come alive and reading and using the trial transcripts, the words of defendants and prosecutors and judges and barristers, to hear that world as it was described by those who were there, experiencing...

    Our Edwardian Farm year is over! We have packed up the cottage, sent the animals off to their new homes and said a reluctant goodbye to all the many local people who so generously helped us.

    But although it's over for the farming team and the crew - you can join us at the very beginning when the new...

  9. Jimmy's Food Factory: Taking apart supermarket food

    Tuesday 9 November 2010, 12:03

    Jimmy Doherty Jimmy Doherty Presenter

    Jimmy's Food Factory opened for business on BBC One last week, and I wonder if you found it hard to believe some of the surprising things I discovered about the food in our shopping trolleys.

    Whether you love or loathe the supermarkets they feed the nation. There's a tremendous amount of science that...

  10. Hormonal pigs and chickens' bottoms: Giles And Sue Live The Good Life

    Monday 8 November 2010, 14:26

    Sue Perkins Sue Perkins Presenter

    When the idea of living the Good Life was mooted it felt like a no-brainer.

    Spend the summer in dungarees, mooching round the garden, tending brassicas with one hand and a pair of goats with the other? Sounded like paradise, if paradise was a manure-smelling, weed-infested back garden in Metroland...
