Yep, that's the one. Apologies, it's not down as a repeat.

No need to apologise, it's a fascinating programme 8)

Did anyone watch that programme of BBC4 on the Dark Ages?

It was presented by a fat polish bloke, but made surprisingly good telly. It was informative without being too academic!

Is it repeated [again]?

Sounds like my cup of tea.
