Nigel Slater's Simple Suppers - The One Show - Netflix
The One Show is a British television magazine and chat show programme. Broadcast live on BBC One weeknights at 7:00 pm, it features topical stories and studio guests. It is currently co-hosted by Alex Jones alongside Matt Baker (Mondays to Thursdays) and a guest host on Fridays. Various reporters also assist with subject-specific presenting, both in the studio and on location, or through filmed segments. Originally produced in Birmingham and then in BBC's Media Village in White City, London, since 2014 the studio is in Broadcasting House, the BBC's headquarters in London. Launched with a pilot series in 2006, leading to a full series from 2007, it has had various previous permanent and temporary hosts; the partnership of Jones and Baker began in 2011, with Chris Evans serving as the first Fridays only host from 2010 until 2015. Prior to the introduction of Evans, the longest presenting partnership was Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley from 2007 to 2010. Their easy and approachable on-screen chemistry is credited with boosting ratings after an unpromising start, establishing the show as a popular staple of British viewing. The programme is usually 30 minutes long, although it is occasionally extended to an hour. It runs all year round, apart from a two-week break at Christmas and a four-week summer holiday, with the summer slot filled with a highlights show, The One Show: Best of British, presented by Matt Allwright and Lucy Siegle. Launching the full series represented a major financial commitment for the BBC and was seen by them as a first test of a wide-ranging restructuring of the BBC's production arm into a more flexible and creative organisation, with the show seen as potential platform for piloting other programme ideas.
Nigel Slater's Simple Suppers - Jimmy Carr - Netflix
Two jokes told by comedian Jimmy Carr on 4 November 2011 episode were referred to regulator OFCOM for investigation regarding their potentially discriminatory nature. The jokes were found to be in breach of their broadcasting code, leading the BBC to alter its existing arrangements for ensuring guests do not swear or use offensive language, to also explicitly discourage jokes made at the expense of minorities.
