The Guardian reviews The Jonathan Meades Collection

Today's Guardian wisely nominates The Jonathan Meades Collection as "your next box set". So far so good.

But when you read the piece, you have to wonder if Laura Barnett is the right person to be reviewing it:
I remember, back in 2009, watching my first Meades – a programme about Aberdeen, part of his Off Kilter series of journeys around Scotland – and staring goggle-eyed as he strode glumly about. I felt he told me almost nothing about the silver city, but a great deal about his passion for obscure vocabulary. I switched off halfway through.
Still, she does link to my post on Meades' Severn Heaven, so she is not all bad.
