Hit the North

Watch this tonight?
Jonathon Meades has got a new programme about the " Northern European" sensibilty on at 9pm BBC4 tonight. (you can watch Ashes to Ashes later or tape it never watch it and then buy the DVD).
I only say this because his programme are great, yes he uses big words but he knows what he's on about and always throws light on his subjects. It's good to have programme for adults who can and do read.
Also the Guardian today calls him "smug" this probably because he does use big words and doesn't only talk about celebrities or shopping. I have suspicion it was this person....
I wonder if he'll cover Northern Soul or why a hint of Swedish melancholia makes ABBA so great?
