I said that too, but I'd never have buzzed if I was in the studio.

Is it because of "Tangled"?

I got this one in one as well, but like Russ, might not have done it on one clue, definitely on two though!

I accidentally started watching 'The Secret History of Writing' on BBC4 last night and, as usual with these things, I was totally hooked after about 5 mins.

I suppose it's pretty obvious that the invention of writing was one of the great leaps forward for mankind, but I hadn't really realised how far behind we were in Europe compared to the Islamic world until the invention of the printing press, nor that the west overtook the east in book production at this point because Arabic cursive writing couldn't be reproduced on a printing press.

Highly recommended.

I forgot to mention. Right at the beginning of the programme the caligrapher who joint presents it makes a writing implement out of a bit of a Coke can taped to the end of a pencil. This implement can produce a line as fine as a thread of cotton, or about half an inch wide, or anywhere in between. It's hard to describe, but great to watch.

This sounds great. Will pop it on the ‘to be watched’ list.

BBC 4:Black Classical Music - a forgotten history

Suzy Klein and Lenny Henry present an overview of black composers who, by not conforming to the stereotype of white, dead, and usually German, seldom appear in the repertoire and concert programme. Some interesting stories and the excerpts are fantastic. Definitely going to start digging for recordings! It's just a shame that it's not accompanied by a fuller performance of some or all of the music featured.

Or maybe -1, because you're only paying attention to the coat.

Welcome return of "Taskmaster" now on 4 so I can finally enjoy 1080 lines of it.. Several laugh-out loud moments, especially the vanishing challenge. Nice range of participants too. Daisy May Cooper is absolutely lovely, and Johnny Vegas is surprisingly endearing.

BBC 4: Inside Museums

Another charming wander-round-empty-museums series. Of the two I've seen, Cerys Mathews gives us a personal tour of St Fagan's but doesn't really go into too much detail whilst Emma Dabiri gives an excellent discussion of travel paintings in the Ulster Museum and what they tell us about how people saw the world in the past. Making it more of an essay within the confines of half an hour makes it a much stronger programme as a result. It also contains a stunning 19th century view of the Giant's Causeway.

Whilst these programmes are borne out of necessity, I do hope it's something that continues - wandering round museums with a guide works really well on TV.
