Daytime TV

I've been off work for a couple of days with a virus of some kind. I won't go into details, but it hasn't been pretty. I've spent a lot of time sleeping or laying on the sofa looking pathetic and annoying the wife. I hate being ill.

On the plus side I have spent the best part of two days watching some interesting TV. But surely, I hear you say, daytime TV is the domain of chat shows and cookery programmes. Well yes there is a lot of rubbish on during the day, but surprisingly there's also a few gems as well. Two channels in particular had an interesting selection of documentaries (Discovery and Yesterday (formerly the History Channel)). I'm not sure what sort of audience they think are watching in the middle of the day, but as a weak and pathetic sick person I appreciated something interesting to watch and take my mind off how awful I felt.

One programme stood out for me, Killer Tanks. I've not seen this before and It was full of interesting little details and interviews that brought the subject to life. Now all I have to do is either throw a few more sick days or learn how to programme the video recorder.
