    Yorkshire Show

    Unable to attend I thought I would watch the TV hour long show about the show last night.
    Jeez!
    Some perfectly nice people featured.....other than that?

    My son went up to the show with my brothers for the first time. He said it was ok but wouldn't bother to go again. I suppose we are spoilt with the Royal Welsh being on our doorstep very nearly. He thought the £30 ticket was pretty steep too. He met some great people in the stock line though.
    Don't itch for something if you're not prepared to scratch for it.

    I have just got home after three days there. Membership is given to us as a Christmas present every year.

    Some lovely stock and much chat in the machinery stands. The card took a bit of a bashing with the shopping though and not much in the way of decent work boots, although if I had wanted fancy brogues I could have bought many.

    These TV progs which consist of showboating presenters pee me off.
    Much prefer the format of "This farming life" & "Yorkshire Vet " where real people are telling the story with a voice over filling in background

    Yes, too much presenter and not enough content. Other than that it gave a reasonably positive spin on farming in general.

    The presenters seemed short of questions when they had an exhibitor in front of them

    My dear departed uncle who was an actor and involved in television productions used to describe programme presenters as 'coat hangers'. Or 'bungalows', look good but nothing upstairs.

    Presenters, either TV or radio are merely the mouthpiece of the producers and researchers. I remember Adam Henson saying in a private meeting he was not allowed to say what he personally thought on countryfile. Producers and researchers are in to promote their own agenda.

    Hmmm
    Madonna (for the uninitiated, a then young lady of no particular talent who used her various other attributes to further her career in the entertainment industry) used to walk out with a young Beau who went by the name of “Bungalow Bill”.
    When asked why he was called “Bungalow Bill” she replied that “the majority of his talents were down stairs”.
    Different version of the same story....
