Not so big and clever.

More proof of it's mission towards middlebrow dumbing down, from the guardian. Its sad when a broadsheet journalist is afraid of the odd long word and can't follow an idea longer than a couple of minutes, good choice of biscuit though.

from "Watch this by Sarah Dempster Wednesday May 23, 2007

Jonathan Meades: Abroad Again
7pm, BBC2
Ostensibly a treatise on the career of 19th-century architect Cuthbert Brodrick (he built Leeds town hall before going a bit French and crap), this documentary harbours another, sinister, purpose. To wit: it is the final brick in Meades' Wall of Posh. While his previous discourses have offered some accessibility, this is just impenetrable. Big and clever? Yes. Capable of providing enjoyment when accompanied by a Tunnock's Caramel Wafer? If only."
