The Hairy Bikers Go North
Si King and Dave Myers return to their northern roots in this new eight-part series, travelling through Lancashire, Cumbria, Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Northumberland and Newcastle. They meet food producers and restaurateurs who are revolutionising the British food scene. Watch in September on BBC Two or catch up on BBC iplayer.
After four weeks of intense competition, the remaining celebs, through to the semi-finals, contend with creative sandwich-making, a themed challenge around the iconic seventies film Abigail’s Party, and cook a dish of their own design for three demanding restaurant critics. Watch weekday evenings on BBC One or catch up on BBC iplayer.

Gems from this year include Raymond Blanc, Alice Waters, Nigella Lawson and Yotam Ottolenghi. Search ‘My Life in Five Dishes’ on BBC Sounds.
