Bake Off Sell Off
A sign of the Times
Subtitle: The Great British Sell-Off
Marcus and Agata are probably the last people in the world to have /just started/ watching
The Great British Bake Off
The link will tell you that it is a knockout baking competition whereby each week one contestant is eliminated until a winner is left as the best amateur (i.e. non professional) Baker.
We are indebted to our good friend Sandra who is not British, just a good cook, who put us onto this program.
And now I hear the programme is being sold off to Commercial Television.
How very annoying! I hope the programme will survive in its current format (oops) and not be chopped up into very small pieces with lots of commerical breaks and inevitable food based advertising!
Here are some links
