Be quick or you will miss it – CE on TV


Norwich Cathedral Cloisters, September 2014 by Susie Mallett

TV and CE is an unusual combination these days but my sister spotted this snippet about Aba at NICE.

Saints and scroungers, BBC1 Series 6:1

This was first shown at 11 a.m. 22nd September, and is only available on BBC iPlayer until 7.50 am tomorrow, Tuesday.

Do not be put off by the title - Charity Fraud Boss, Police investigators uncover a scam by a ruthless couple running a charity’. Note that the programme is called Saints and Scroungers and that the NICE snippet comes on the side of the saints.

Thanks to Sis for spotting it and recording it for me to watch next time I am home.

What a civilized country this is.
