Jonathan Meades tonight

I echo Heffer's recommendation of Jonathan Meades on the Scots tonight at 9pm on C4.

I remember one magnificent throwaway line of his from a documentary on Lutyens; as the camera panned across a complacent faux-Lutyens stockbroker home, Meades commented "Lutyens is documented as having designed thirteen houses during his career, forty-seven of which are in Surrey"

Incomparable.
