NEWS: The trouble with TV
Not much worth watching on TV these days. Hardly seem to use ours for much more than movies and when we are catatonic on the couch. Gone are the days of scheduling our lives around TV. Although saying that tonight Star Wars: Attack of the Clones is on at 9pm on ITV so will be racing home to catch that.
However, there are some great shows out there. In the UK my favourites are:
No Waste Like Home A great show about how to green your life, be happier, save money and the planet. Series has sadly ended now although it is currently running on BBC2 on Sign Zone aka graveyard shift at 3am.
The Heaven & EarthShow which is a show about various modes of Spirituality and our connection to each other and to the planet.
Gotta love the BBC!
But the one show I really want to talk to you about is The View from River Cottage.
This offering from the UK's Channel 4 sees Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, a smallholding chef of mammoth repute, take us to a simpler slightly downshifted life where people cook their own food, source produce seasonally and as locally, ethically and organically as possible. Bliss.
Round of applause for Hugh and Channel 4. Have not even managed to catch it yet, just keep missing it but hope to see it soon though. Will report back if and when I do.
Am curious to hear about the shows that make you love your TV. What shows in your country do you think City Hippy would like?
