The Supersizers Go... Seventies


Tuesday 10 June
9:00pm - 10:00pm
BBC2
Giles Coren and Sue Perkins don't just sample diets from history in this series, they really romp about in them; they frolic drunkenly in the costumes, lifestyles and freaky foodstuffs of the past until they (and we) feel so bloated we're dying to get back to the present for a quiet prawn sandwich and a diet cola. This week the retro-grub is from the 1970s, so it's fare that many viewers will remember, but it's as unfathomable as something from the 17th century. Frozen and tinned convenience foods are everywhere: Angel Delight, Smash, Crispy Pancakes ("like eating babyfood out of a hot slipper," Coren notes) . . . But there are also Fanny Cradock's garish recipes, re-created here by chef Mark Hix, who can't hide his horror at "fish sandwich cake" and a breakfast dish involving cramming bacon, eggs, mushrooms and sherry into a big loaf. Best of all, we encounter Len Deighton's Action Cook Book, which from the sound of it could make any party go with a swing.

Looking forward to this! Does feel weird having a history programme from a time that just feels like yesterday:eek::D
