Upcoming Schedule Changes

Tea Time Tidbit for the week of February 25, 2019

We have a few program changes coming up that I want to make sure you know about.

Tea Time Tidbit

Lark Rise to Candleford

First, on Friday, March 1st, Lark Rise to Candleford, the 19th century costume drama about life in the English countryside, returns to Afternoon Tea. The series features a whole host of familiar faces, either in permanent roles or as guest stars. Brendan Coyle, who played John Bates in Downton Abbey, for instance appears in the first three series as Robert Timmins.

Lark Rise to Candleford airs at 1:30pm and replaces Last of the Summer Wine and Yes, Minister.

Are You Being Served?

Also Afternoon Tea welcomes back Are You Being Served? Be sure to tune in for the pilot episode on Friday, March 1st at 3:30pm. That particular episode first aired in the U.K. in 1972. It’s hard to believe that the BBC initially weren’t going to air the show. After their coverage of the Summer Olympics was interrupted owing to what tragically became known as the Munich Massacre, they needed something to air as a filler program. Are You Being Served? was the show and it was a huge hit with viewers.

If you’ve never been to England, there’s a chance to see some of the country’s most beautiful areas from the comfort of your living room, when Rick Steves’ Europe spends several days touring around England.

On Wednesday, February 27th, Steves will be in England’s West Country, travelling to quaint Cotswold villages, and visiting the stone circles of Stonehenge and Avebury. On Thursday, February 28th, he’ll be on the southeast coast of England and on Friday, February 29th, he explores Poldark country; Cornwall.

Rick Steves’ Europe airs at 1:00pm weekdays.

Finally, a reminder that our Afternoon Tea programs will be taking a break the week of March 4rd, in order that we can raise the funds to bring you the shows. They’ll return March 11th.
