I’ve just emailed the following to the Radio Times firstname.lastname@example.org for next week’s Letters page. I don’t see how they could possibly object to it, and I’m hoping it will be their ‘Letter of the Week’. The prize is ‘a compact and stylish iPod, iPhone and iPad dock’, whatever that is.
I am surely not alone in being an admirer of Fiona Bruce, albeit not interested in antiques programmes. The BBC should broadcast an episode of Antiques Roadshow consisting solely of excerpts in which she appears personally, from previous series. I’m sure plenty of viewers – male viewers in particular – would happily sit through a programme consisting of Ms B sharing her knowledge of antiques, or pruning her roses, or walking the dog, or washing the dishes, or… well, just about anything, to be honest. I have only one request for your august publication. If such a programme is ever made, can you please not have Alison Graham review it? I’ve a fair idea what her views on such a programme would be, given that male viewers could be expected to enjoy it. Thank you.
