I'd expected to see something arrse-wise re the BBC2 programme Top Dogs where Simpson, Ran Fiennes and Knox-Johnson all have a go at each other's specialities. Last night was Polar expeditions with Fiennes. Simpson had to retire hurt early on when he left his fingers out a bit too long when having a wee. He did not favour the Ran treatment involving a fretsaw! The fitness of the man Fiennes is awe inspiring and KJ just does not ever ever give up. When the temperature inside the tent was about -50 they agreed it was too cold to venture out and dug personal latrines in the tent floor. Bit surprised at that - I would have thought they would bag it and trek it out. Now we have to watch for brown snow as well as the yellow variety. Fine programme. Next week they all go sailing and I'm betting it will not just be a trip round Margate Bay.
