Amazing the power of twitter, isn't it? Last year I was invited to the BBC studios in Norwich to meet the team from the BBC's Inside Out programme, and very welcoming they were. They saw that we were active locally on the web and invited me in to meet the team.
Well, this year they asked me if we could help spread the word again about the new series, which is full of interesting local Norwich and East Anglian stories.
The new series presents 3 surprising stories from Where we Live with David Whiteley.
Cash strapped councils across the East own personalised number plates worth millions. We reveal who owns what and ask if they should follow the example of Essex County Council who sold their "F1" plate nearly half a million.
Chris Packham meets the man who inspired him to become a conservationist; David Cobham now runs a wildlife reserve near Fakenham in Norfolk but back in the 70s he was one of the first to challenge the destruction of the countryside with his film "Vanishing Hedgerows". He went on to make many classics with David Attenborough and the world famous "Tarka the Otter".
Dale Pinnock from Cambridgeshire cooks food that he says not only tastes good but he says can also heal. Colleen Harris tries out his "anti flu soup" and talks to scientists at the Norwich based Institute of Food research who say that there is something to be said for the idea of medicinal food.
The programme starts on Monday 18th October 2010 7.30pm BBC 1
