Can I just make sure that there are two complaitions from Series G, not one. I know that the first is being shown on Easter Monday.

EDIT: Just learned the other compliation is on 16th April.

My Radio Times says there is a compilation on Easter Monday, no mention of compliations or complaitions.

Any signs of complications?

Aw hell, I’m going to be in Southampton, and nowhere near my HDD recorder...

My Rodeo Tunes (which is about as reliable as the Radio Times or the BBC for BBC listings) says there will be an Eatser Maundy at Christmas. It also tells me that, according to Nostradamus, Christmas Day will begin at 23:55 on Christmas Eve due to the cancellation of coverage of pro-celebrity ironing which was expected to over-run from its intended 9PM slot on bonfire night (previously known as Harvest Moon).

Given the inability of anyone employed by the BBC to be able to call up the speaking clock and figure out the time I think My Little Rodeo is probably more accurate.

Blimey. It's bad enough being away from your HDD recorder, but to be in Southampton...

That's tough.

It could be worse, they could be fifteen miles or so to the East.

Actually, I think I have spotted a quibble.

Sean talks about a penguin that is a general in the Norwegian army. In fact, the penguin, Sir Nils Olav, is a Colonel-in-Chief, not a general.

IIRC this was mentioned in a previous episode. Can't remember which, though, and searching for penguin inurl:qitranscripts doesn't seem to provide it.

I have met the Colonel-in-Chief on parade with the other penguins at Edinburgh zoo.

The compilation not only continued this error but also featured the Vincent Van Gough error.

I think the penguin error was fair enough. It wasn't part of the official question, after all. Sean was just vaguely remembering something as a bit of banter and getting it slightly wrong.

It was mentioned in the Strictly Come Duncing DVD.

It was indeed. Since I have access to the script for that game, here's what it said:

7. What’s quite interesting about Norway’s Colonel-in-Chief?

a) He's a she b) He's a committed Morris Dancer c) He's a penguin d) He's Swedish

a)0 b)0 c)10 d)0

A young lieutenant named Nils Egelien visited Edinburgh Zoo in 1962 while the Royal Norwegian Guard were appearing in the Military Tattoo. He was so taken with the penguins he saw there that, upon their next appearance in 1972, he arranged for his regiment to sponsor a King Penguin and adopt it as their mascot. It was named Nils Olav, after himself and Norway's then King Olav, and awarded the rank of Lance Corporal. Since then, it's become a tradition that the penguin receives a promotion every time the Royal Norwegian Guard plays at the Edinburgh Tattoo.

Oh. I thought it was in the series. Hmm.
Oh well.
