    I watched three BBC4 documentaries in a row last night which is unheard of as our pub quiz was cancelled at the last minute.

    The middle one was the entire story of the landline in the UK. Well worth a watch, as it's an incredible story.

    The first one was the best though - the decommissioning of a North Sea oil rig and it's removal, demolition and recycling.

    The last one was about meteorites, which focused on that Russian one which hit the earth in 2013 and was captured on loads of dashcams giving the scientists invaluable clues.

    Any other documentary recommendations on BBC4 or any channels?

    ESPN's 30 for 30 series of documentaries is always good if you can find 'em.

    Just purely out of curiosity, would an independent Wales be prepared to pay a licence fee to the BBC to continue to receive transmissions?

    I may appear to be poking a stick in the hornets' nest again, but relatively minor considerations like that might affect whether I wanted to move back to Wales.

    The music docs on BBC 4 are excellent.
    The Kate Bush one that was recently repeated is great, I could listen to Tricky talking about Kate for hours with that deep west country accent.:hehe:

    Any of the Storyvilles are always bloody good. There's a good on on the eye player about the Yorkshire Ripper as well.

    I do know someone who took on one of those chateau renovations. Absolute madness, but they managed it, sold it last year and started again on an even bigger place.

    I like a Coxey doc, always entertaining. I like the way, even when he’s describing a catastrophic meteorite strike or summat, he always sounds like he’s having his balls fondled.

    Yeah you won’t be disappointed watching anything that he’s presenting, he’s so keen and enthusiastic about everything and has the ability to explain the most complex things
