      Because it's raining, just watched 10 puppies and us. There was a golden retriever puppy,so had to watch it before tonight. It brings a lot of memories about bringing up a puppy. But so lovely.

          Watched the 4th episode of series 1 of top of the lake. It's good when you get to understand the characters.

                @Logan thanks for putting this up will have to have a gander unless there is something else to watch.I saw a lot of them that Greg did last year I think it was and it is fascinating to see the items being made from start to finish in those high speed production units.

                Last week I was watching a programme each night about farming competitions and it is amazing what is done to the animals to get them just right.Also watched The Welsh Show with Kate Humble and that was good as well:smile:

                Last one of Poldark this coming Sunday which is good in one way because I was getting to the stage where I could have given George Warleggan a slap as well as slapping Osborne Whitworth in the teeth as well:biggrin:

                @Kandy if you've missed any inside the factory, it's on iPlayer.
                Never watched poldark, I felt that there were too many costume dramas at that time.:)

                  @Logan I saw the biscuit programme in the end and enjoyed it:blue thumb: It is usually the dog rescuers I normally watch but gave it a miss this week as I find some of the stories most upsetting:sad:

                  Just watching The Yorkshire Dales and The Lakes but not keen on the potholing article:sad:

                  I am trying not to watch stuff on Iplayer as I will end up watching too much TV and I had enough of that for the six weeks I was housebound so we don't normally have the telly on until 6pm when the news is on:biggrin:

                  I don't mind the costume dramas now I am older and can appreciate them a bit more.

                  Hope you are ok and getting back to enjoying life since your accident recently:grphg:

                    @Kandy I find those animal programmes upsetting, so i don't watch them. I only watch TV of an evening. Haven't watched that yet. Watched in the dark, very good.
                    Knee is getting better slowly. Started walking the dogs.Thanks for asking.:)

                      The food factory programmes are incredible . Last week it showed a pasta mass production factory in Italy and last night the McVities biscuit factory in London . Both of these were continuous process lines with mindboggingly fascinating special machines . As a now ex-engineer the first thing I think of , is what happens when they break down !:snorky: It must be utter chaos .

                        Just caught up with it ... well, began watching last night, but fell asleep :redface: Mr "M" was on early shift today so hadn't stayed up to watch it, so, this evening was a good time for us both to catch up with it. A really good drama and, I think, Myanna Burling played a good role - such a huge difference from her previous role as Long Susan. I found the final 15 minutes quite emotional on a number of levels.

                        I'm quite glad that *grown up* TV is showing this type of programme. One of the bonuses of having children was that I got to watch Children's TV and "Auntie Mable" and "Pippin" would often fly off to see how things were made - who knew? - so, yes, it is good to see that some manufacturing processes have made it to main stream TV. :thumbsup:

                            Just watched the Inside The Factory from last night. Chocolate digestives. Very good, but nodded off a couple of times. Last night saw last Episode of in the dark. Hope they do another.

                            BBC is bringing back the generation game.
