TV nature programs, well I'll be damned!
While watching BBC2’s Autumn Watch wildlife program last night, I couldn’t help but notice that at several places during the program presenter Chris Packham dropped in the names of at least 3 Damned songs (Grimly Fiendish, Neat Neat Neat and Smash It Up) into sentences when he was referring to all things feathered and furry….Bizarre!….I have heard that Chris is a ‘punk rock fan’, but is this the sort of thing we pay our TV Licences to hear? Yeah too bloody right it is! I’m wondering if next week we’re gonna hear about Badgers in their Safe European Homes and how Wild Boars Stay Free in the New Forest or how London’s Calling for migrating geese.
