And on that farm he had some sheep Ee Ay Ee Ay Oh!
With a Bah bah here and a pish tush there...
As you might have gathered the Sock finally watched Old MontyDonald's Dream Farm. There is nothing much the Sock can say that hasn't been more eloquently stated by AA Gill in his article here.
The programme was perfectly pleasant with some perfectly pleasant people in it plus paternalistic Monty Don admonishing the farmer to 'look after his health' which, at least, seemed the one area of this programme in which Monty had some expertise to offer. Other than that it was a perfectly wasted opportunity. Had the magnificent and eminently watchable Sarah Raven and Adam Nicolson been planted in the mix she could have bossed everyone into submission whilst Adam waxed lyrical on the joys of the countryside. Sarah surely wouldn't have winced at the price the dream farmers hoped to sell their wool-filled duvets for.
