TV: H is for...

Highway

HARRY SECOMBE buys a Senior Citizen’s Railcard and heads off on a decade-long excursion to admire some of the country’s most famous religious relics – and to look at a few buildings as well. Route strictly determined by the necessity to visit every ITV region at least once a year, which while posing no problem for, say, Granada, probably exercised the tourist information officers of Guernsey (“Well, we’ve the cliffs, or the sea, or the sea and the cliffs, or a pregnant puffin…”). At each location a celebrity would be conveniently waiting, ready to share their “spiritual journey through life” and then shut up while Harry sang a hymn on a nearby hilltop.

    proudly carried an ITV PRESENTS front cap like it was the World Cup, and a banging keyboard theme tune. It was all downhill for the remaining 29 minutes.

    At least they had the logo of the producing company at the end each time which was a rare chance to see the ones from the smaller companies in prime time.
