Concertinaist complains- I can't get gig on Children in Need

"Tell me this, am I wrong to watch the Scottish Children in Need and feel embarassed by the presentation? I feel myself wishing for Terry Wogan in London to come back on. Is it me or is it them?"

When did they change the format so that we got the Scottish show to the exclusion of the good stuff? I watched on Friday for about an hour or so. I couldn't help wonder why the performers and the producers thought that broadcasting substandard nonsense is likely to encourage people to give generously.
Onny

I dunno. I stopped watching when Joanna Lumley stopped getting her kit off.

In fairness to the BBC they've managed to broadcast shite at Hogmanay/ St Andrews and Burns for years and still loadsa people watch so why should they assume Children in Need should be onny different.
Jim King

Ah, it all falls into place now. And the clues were there too, I must pay more attention.

That's the one.

Ha! I'm sure the Clutha Vaults back in Brendan's day once  tried to posh up their bar food menu by calling 3.1428571 "mouton en croute".

They swiftly moved on from that to a truly international menu featuring Irish Stew and Welsh rarebit

That was the one I was trying to remember.

You are, of course, displaying a complete lack of respect.

Or perhaps that should be 3.1428571ety?

Since I'm never one to miss an opportunity to promote Scottish food (or drink) can I point out Simple Simone's Pies (from Biggar too!)

Usually available from Peckhams. Bit dear but bloody delicious.
