    Interesting, Channel 4 is free to air since a few weeks ago and I pick
    it up well here, but the programming is atrocious (on a par with BBC3
    and ITV) and so I rarely watch it. I will take a look at the wine
    program though... :-)

    thanks for the pointer John.

    Nothing new was revealed in this program, it was OK I suppose. I am not
    used to seeing that many commercials, almost all for some form of usury,
    encouraging viewers to borrow and spend way beyond their means... I
    suppose the UK is immune from subprime etc.. :-)

    The bit about ingredient marking on labels and the quick appearance of
    Randall Grahm were good.

    I was surprised that more time was spent on the adulterated wine scandal
    in Italy (while I would not want to drink it, I wonder how bad wine cut
    with hydrochloric acid is for you) than on the much graver scandal about
    Brunello. In the former case you can shut down a binch of bad guys, in
    the latter there seems to be no end to the story, implicating some of
    the top names in the industry, and now with a (senile?) Gaja even
    advocating people making improved Brunello cut with other grape varieties.

    Mike
    That was nothing, you should see the commercials on daytime sub prime Sky,
    but having said that, they do seem to be getting less obnoxious.

    "Wanna, a loan?, no income, living on a sink housing estate, no assets...we
    love you people, we will roll your debts into one new loan and screw you to
    hell"

    Back to the programme, as you say nothing new....but pressure is growing for
    more labelling transperency......as for the guy from The Wines and Spirits
    Assoc......whata complete *****er
