Never heard of him.

I do fancy some beans, though....

Did you never hear of "The Great Egg Race" back in the 80s? That was a great sciency/fun programme. He was in loads of other stuff too, but nothing recently (as in the last 10years that I've seen).

Think a German-ish Johnny Ball crossed with Patrick Moore, with a passion for science and making it fun. That's Heinz Wolff.

I've seen him just a few times on telly over the years, I'm pretty sure I also seen him in a TV advert somewhere.

Speaking of the BBC... I just stumbled across "All Aboard: A Sleigh Ride" - I put it on out of curiosity thinking to myself "surely there'll be more to it than that"?

Apparently not.

It's a reindeer, pulling a sleigh through the arctic snow, in what they proudly call "realtime". It's on for two hours. TWO. FUCKING. HOURS.

BBC4 right now if you don't believe me.

BBC Four's full of oddness!

TOTP repeats are always fun.

Still, it makes a change from "Tales from the Trenches" or some other war shit the BBC always seem to thrive on this time of year.

I think that Sleigh Ride was on last year too.

Yeah I googled it, made in 2015 apparently.

It's hardly The Snowman, is it?
