I always find anything presented/written by Ian Hislop (pictured) interesting. His last show for BBC2 on The British Stiff Upper Lip was informative and entertaining, so I thought I’d flag up that he has another history based documentary series airing this week on BBC2.
It’s called Ian Hislop’s Olden Days and is about the British obsession with the past.
It is 3 one hour programmes, airing 9pm on BBC2 starting Wednesday.
Long running satirical news quiz, Have I Got News for You returns to BBC1 Friday 4th April at 9pm. Guest host is Jennifer Saunders and panellists are MP Sadiq Khan and quiz show host Richard Osman. For those wanting a little bit more, the extended edition is on Tuesday on BBC1 at 10:35.
