Balderdash and Piffle
For those of you in the UK, the second season of Balderdash and Piffle starts this evening at 10 pm on BBC2. The show is a cooperative venture between the BBC and the Oxford English Dictionary and explores the histories of interesting words. It also invites the public to help contribute in filling in the gaps in words’ histories. The first episode, One Sandwich Short of a Picnic, explores words for madness. The eight-part series airs Fridays at 10 pm and repeats on Mondays at 11:20 pm, also on BBC2.
The appeal list for words to be used on the show is here.
