    This links to a different thread but if you like listening to stuff on BBC iPlayer are you familiar with ďIn Our TimeĒ?

    Itís been on every week for years and years now on R4. Melvyn Bragg presents it, he has three guests who are usually Oxbridge dons or similar and he takes a subject. Could be anything, the life of John the Evangelist, the rubber-sheet theory of the universe, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the fall of the Roman Empire, the fall of man in Miltonís ĎParadise Lostí.

    Bragg keeps things moving by asking very direct questions of his experts, who are clearly briefed to respond in an accessible manner. You come away feeling like youíve had an intellectual version of colonic irrigation.

    Never had the irrigation thing so don't know how accurate your comparison is, but R4's the cat's bollocks. Except The Archers and Wumman's Hour.

    Never had irrigation either, I was speculating

    R4 is good, I drive a lot with work and usually listen to R3 but will change to R4 if itís a piece of music I really dislike. Iíve stumbled across some absolute gems in the afternoon schedule, usually half an hour long.

    Also have got back into listening to the World Service. Used to go to sleep to it in my early twenties, a long time ago now. Itís gently reassuring. Iím getting old

    Sorry to take the thread off topic, but some of the stuff on iPlayer radio app is really worth listening too. I’m a bit of a technophobe, but we sometimes forget just how good radio can be.

    Store security at the doors.

    Sometimes it will bleep but I don't understand why some people will actually turn round and go back into the store

    even if there is no one at the security desk.

    Presuming that they haven't stolen anything, why do they go back in?

    Maybe they don't want to bleep if they're going to other shops.

    In case there is a security tag on a garment that they will struggle to remove once back home is one reason when buying cloths. Not that I need any help removing them ;-)

    Tricks of the trade learnt from my days in retail security, not old shoplifting skills before anyone asks.

    I wish I knew! (And not because I'm a shoplifter!)

    It's happened to me a few times (and didn't even beep, or I'd have known.) Most recently, my daughter bought a top in a shop in London that doesn't have a branch in Scotland. We got home, she found the tag...

    I tried a couple of shops to see if they had similar tags, failed, and eventually her big sister cracked it only after trying just about every other shop in town.

    On a similar note, I now never refuse a receipt on the self -checkout till, after my receiptless M+S steaks started beeping on my way out the door. They were very good about it, however.

    They are all fairly easy mate as itís a pin held in place by ball bearings and a spring mechanism in most cases. I can do most of them in seconds.

    Prosecco

    Just a cheap/worse version of champagne, which I'm not overly keen on anyway.

    It became a big thing amongst women a few years ago and now seems to becoming popular with guys too

    I prefer it to Champagne, I think it tastes better - although I'm not overly keen on either (throw in some flavoured gin and we start getting somewhere though).

    Given I'm not keen on either - I'd rather sip my way through £9 than £40.

    I'm the same. Hate champagne and can only take prosecco with flavoured gin or chambord.

    We were at a wedding last year and got three free glasses of prosecco during dinner. I had a hip flask filled with chambord to flavour it. I ended up havibg to go back to the room to refill it as everybody at the table wanted some

    I can confirm Tesco tags clothes - my missus suffered the fate of discovering the tag when she put the garment on later.
    Luckily we had the receipt and a more local branch removed the tag for us.

    Funnily enough it DIDN'T beep on the way out, or we wouldn't have taken it home!

    I do that.

    I just can't look past the texture or the smell of some food.

    Realise i'm in the wrong though and i'm a total hypocrite as i give my boy **** for not trying stuff.

    Im the same and was really strict with the kids growing up about trying different things as its a pain trying to find places to eat when your fussy. Mostly smell and texture for me too.

    Having said that my boys made me taste fried octopus ball flavoured juice the other day. It had a marble in the lid that you pushed down and made the liquid fizz. Very bizarre. Vile doesnt come close.

    I wouldn't really have expected octopus' balls to taste anything other than vile.

    Same here. I was on a boy's weekend in Prague recently where some of the guys would have happily spent the whole weekend in titty bars. Don't get me wrong, I like titties as much as the next guy but there's just something incredibly seedy about these places that makes them sexually sterile in my opinion.
