This autumn, writer and broadcaster Janet Street-Porter joins forces with Chef Brian Turner to discover a true Taste Of Britain on BBC1. Each programme focusses on one county or region in which Brian and Janet seek out not only the best local food producers, but also explore the history, wildlife and local traditions that make each area so special. Scheduled for a daytime slot, the programme filmed local chefs in Dorset and Suffolk – I hope that they include the Midlands!
In September Channel 5 airs a new series – Marston’s Brewery: One Ale Of A Job, narrated by Al Murray “The Pub Landlord”. This three part series follows the men and women of Marston’s, the world’s largest brewer of cask ale and one of the oldest breweries in Britain, as they battle to stay ahead of the competition.
