Numbers 1, 3 & 9 are crackers mate but they're all really good. I'm sure that Bay of Kotor was on the telly last week. "Francesco's Mediterranean Voyage" is on BBC2 on Wednesdays. You'll like it. It's also available for download on the retro-active abortion that is the BBC iPlayer [sic].

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comments everybody. Montenegro's a beautiful country, although it is a little too hot...

And zorro, it was on "Francesco's Mediterranean Voyage" which I tuned into by accident. It's a good programme, but the presenter annoys me. I'd prefer Michael Palin any day.
