Dumb Edwardians?

Diary of a Nobody - The LaurelsDUMB EDWARDIANS?

Do I object to 'dumbing-down' in arts broadcasting? I don't know ... broadcasters' interest in all things Victorian has now trickled down to the Edwardian era in BBC4's forthcoming season of very loosely connected programmes. The good news is a new adaptation of The Diary of a Nobody (yes, people have already pointed out its not Edwardian). The bad news includes titles such as Edwardian SuperSize Me. Hopefully better than it sounds.

  1. My dear sir, congratulations on your new blog! I have bookmarked it and will be a regular visitor, as I have been to your main site. I have several of your books and enjoy them immensely; has been immeasurably helpful to me in researching my own Victorian-era mysteries. So glad to see that you've joined the blogging crowd!
