Britain Beneath Your Feet - BBC1
« on: July 14, 2015, 08:14:38 pm »
What did people think of the 2 programmes under this title?
I thought the first one, with Gaping Gill, and the River Fleet, was good. Why on earth they couldn't come up with anything better than puffin burrows and a badger sett for the second one, I don't know. How about the chalk and stone mines under peaceful English suburbs? Or the salt mines in Cheshire?

There was a thread about this, although where it is now I don't know (which leads to the question: are old threads being moved to fit the new structure or left where they are/were posted, unless the old board is removed and it needs a new home)?

Puffins and badgers was a bit of a disappointment (from an underground explorers point of view perhaps), not that I have anything against them, was interesting all the same - given the audience it was aimed at I'd say it did its job (as in "beneath feet" which in no way implies it should be accessible by humans).

I turned off after that stoopid twat threw flares into Gaping Ghill, what a muppet!

Still it probs gives the "squares" summat to squirm over whilst binging on Wife Beater and Curry!
