I don't get BBC. Too bad sounds really good. Enjoy it for those of us that can't.

The Tom Simpson documentary was very good. There were interviews with Aimar, Stablinski, Vin Denson. It drew out the fact that Simpson wasn't a naive, wet behind the ears innocent abroad. He fitted into very well with the professional peleton.

The whole Mt Ventoux horror story was dealt with well. I never realised how unwell he was (ie persistent diarrhea) for a number of days prior to the stage.
