    Aye, it was posted up yesterday. May be interesting as long as they try to keep up to date with the latest research/professional opinion etc.

    We throw rolled up old socks at the tv screen, when we disagree with what ever politician is spruiking. Safer and saves shouting.

    Sorry, didn't realise this had been mentioned. I typed something like "whittingstall fat fight" in the search box and nothing came up.

    Anyway: Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall vs Big Food: Who will win?

    I don't know yet because I've just got back and I'm about to watch it on catch-up! Don't tell me the score, you'll ruin it for me!

    Always worth a second post to discuss the footage!

    ... realises he knows nothing about TV after going through all the channels and discovering that BBC1 +1 is a figment of his imagination ...

    I like to think there is something quite sophisticated about not understanding television channels.

    You will not get any spoilers from me as I am geoblocked.

    It will be six months before it will be on SBS television.

    He seems to be concentrating on sugar content rather than highly processed carbs.

    I was truly shocked at the footage inside WHSmiths. It's probably over a decade since I've been into one so the difference from what I remember is staggering.

    I wonder if they just decided one day to go crazy offering chocolate at the checkout or if it slowly crept up. Anyone shop there regularly and noted the change?
