I do. Sometimes resort to the +1 broadcasts but mainly watch live.

Being a shift worker, I hardly ever watch anything 'live'. We have a very busy little PVR box.

Correction: The Keeps XL episode is NOT on tonight. Instead it is the Kit & Kaboodle episode which is on at 20.30.

To put it another way, it looks like Keeps is another XL episode that is going to be postponed for months on end.

The clue is in the title.

Hi pmailkeey,

Looking back at our research, I see that we didn't mean scarper in the sense of running away quickly, rather we decided that one should walk away from a cow slowly, as this isn't 'keeping still' we decided to label it 'scarper'. Unfortunately, as I've just watched this back, I see that we didn't explain this at all, and pretty much just showed a picture of some cows and added the word 'scarper'.

Here is one of our sources:

If you find yourself in a field of suddenly wary cattle, move away as carefully and quietly as possible.


We seem to be guilty of oversimplifying to the extent of being wrong here; such is the danger of trying to explain things in a 30 minute comedy panel show format. But that's no excuse really; must do better.

I know when my friend lived on a farm and kept cows, it always amazed me how easy it was to divert a ton and a half of of beef (their bull, Hugo) by waving your arms in a mildly active manner or even wearing a slightly unusual t-shirt!

Another Beeb game of (ahem) keep-away?

Don't worry, I'll see myself out....

Should you ever wish to score a cheap forfeit against a panel member (heaven forfend!) you could do worse ask a similar question about Cape Hunting Dogs
About 1/3 of experts* say run away as fast as possible
About 1/3 say stand your ground waving your arms
About 1/3 say slowly and carefully step away backwards

The Dogs say "We don't care, we're going to eat you anyway"

Almost every bush encounter between a solitary human and Cape dogs has ended badly for the human

* and I use the word experts quite incorrectly

As well as 'Lovely to Look at (from a safe distance or the back of a truck)'

Next time. do the research in the field.

("Field" - get it? Comedy genius.)

Actually, I once went to Torpenhow to see if there was a hill by that name for QI - if there was such a place it would mean 'hill hill hill hill'.

During that 'field' trip I was chased by cows. True story. (not a particularly interesting story, but true nonetheless)
