It seems they don't care for Canadians too much, either. I'm sure someone on the forums from "over there" will be nice enough to fill us in before too long.

That's just mean...Damn BBC tease. No fault on you Zencat, but that just sucks. I might do some digging YT.uk

If I find a link that works, I'll put it up.

Oh yeah; I meant to watch that episode of the series. I probably won't get around to it before it's off iPlayer.
That clip's rather fun; cementing Bond's status as a snob and Faulks amusingly says that he tried to beef up Bond's knowledge in wine a bit as it seemed odd that such a famously heavy drinker has previously shown no knowledge of the grape! :)
