    There's a good one on eye player off BBC 4 about the Shah of Iran putting on an elaborate party to celebrate 2500 years of the Persian Empire and how it led to him being overthrown by the ayatollah bloke. The dull kent had the party in the middle of the dessert and spent millions and millions on it. He imported 50,000 sparrows from Spain to live in these 15,000 French trees he had flown in and planted around the party but they all died within a day or so. Falling out the sky onto people.The extravagance was next level. 4 tons of food. Well worth a watch. Blocks of ice as big as houses being flown in and that. Nuts. Almost every Royal and Prime minister was there kissing his arse. It started going tits. People were fuming. Good laugh it is. He's lucky they didn't cut his head off. It's a Storyville so it's well made.

    Here it is on Youtube anyway

    My Mrs is a Wurzel but 40 years of living in Wales has removed the most embarrassing aspects of that accent.

    Watched this tonight. Really well made programme, and I learnt a fair bit when I thought I knew it all about Cardiff.

    Ex City announcer Ali also makes an appearance.

    Cardiff really can claim the Most Edwardian City title as it grew massively during his short reign, he visited twice and it was the only place he made a City during said reign.

    You also almost see Alice Roberts getting undressed. Knowing she's walking about Dyffryn Gardens commando was a decent consolation though.

    Cardiff looks amazing in the sun and from the air.

    Loved the original Wales flag off the Terra Nova.

    That flag was great! I’d love them to make a copy of it to fly down at the bay where the Terra Nova set sail from.
