The second episode of the three part story of human evolution airs tonight but following an angry response to last week's first part, BBC2 executives are worried that the anatomist's fans will be tuning out.

This was fun although a little obsessive about Miss Roberts. What makes it even more funny is that the BBC pulled the scheduled episode of 'New Tricks' from one with out Amanda Redmond to one with her Kerry Fox. Maybe it's a plot against Alice after all and the Savile thing was just a blind?

Anyway a friend of mine was in the same Choir as Alice and she says you aren't missing much.

Thanks John L.

Obsessive? That's the point. Obsession. It's just part of a running story about obsessive fans that began way back.

It's also not the latest one, which was written to coincide the current three-night series and which is still languishing in approvals. No - this one was written in October.

(Oh... wrong story - I see.)

Saw Amanda in an airport queue last year - quite lovely.

I know what you mean but since the program on the origin of religion with Francesca Stavrakopoulou all others seem a bit, not so good anymore.

Not forgetting Bettany Hughes a full size version of Nigella (Nigella is tiny if you meet her. With six inch heels on she was still only up to my elbow.)

Now then, Bettany... yes, but... her presentation is a little too, erm... she sounds like she's trying to persuade you some times.

Top historian (and a looker!), all the same.
