    Well done Rog! Did they budge on the 50 quid offer?

    Later this summer. It'll be on the web first because they haven't planned when it'll be screened in the UK, yet.

    Don't worry, I'll swallow my usual shyness and let everyone know when it's released:biggrin:

    No wonder the BBC keep asking for a licence fee increase! It's all down to Hilldodger and his outrageous demands on their funds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :biggrin::biggrin:

    goes to show you should always haggle.
    they probably always try it on to see who's naive enough to doit for peanuts before they make a sensible offer.

    It was recorded and will now go out next tuesday as part of a cycling special.

    Not sure how much Cyclemagic will feature because British cycling were there too and they recorded much more than will be needed.

    One of the presenters was riding the Tall Bike on set during the opening part of the show, though.

    And I got to fondle the Blue Peter dogs:biggrin: but not the female presenter:sad:

    It did actually think about elephants, the same studio is used for the Jonathan Ross show and I thought about one stamping on his head.

    But as the programme was recorded I didn't see the point in crapping on set

    Hilldodger is now taking bookings for after dinner speaking as an expert on the BBC, with his specialist subject, Jonathan Ross. Pronouncing his R's as W's costs a little more!
