The next bit of excitement was seeing myself on TV (right, with presenter Karl Ude-Martinez)! The series 'Instruments of Death' is currently being screened on the Yesterday Channel (Freeview 19) - and the Towton episode I did some filming for back in July was shown on Monday 19th, and will be repeated tonight at 9.55 pm. I was delighted ( not to mention relieved) that my bits seemed to come over OK - at least I didn't look or sound too idiotic - and found it very interesting to see how the director had condensed down several hours of filming (including the repetition of bits we fluffed up!) into two coherent sections which dovetailed nicely into the rest of the programme. Lots of fun all round - I hope I get chance to do more TV work in the future.

Then it was over to Sherburn-in-Elmet with Hubcap and a van-load of kit for my third and final presentation of the month: a double-act show n' tell on medieval costume. I was really pleased I could include images of the amazing 15th century lingerie recently found at Innsbruck Castle - incredibly modern-looking bras and bikini briefs - which prompted Mick's suggestion that I should re-title the talk, 'From Pourpoints to Pants'. Hmm... I'll think about it! Meanwhile with all that behind me, it's back to proof-reading and finishing off Breath of Gaia...
