We can’t all be lion tamers or rocket scientists or maverick detectives. In fact, if we’re honest, most people’s jobs are pretty boring. All the same, from comparative exotica like ‘Ice Road Truckers’ to the social history of ‘The London Markets’ and the banal service-industry nightmare of ‘The Call Centre’, there’s definitely been a move towards documenting our working lives on TV in recent years.
This latest effort verges on the humdrum: the blokes of Preston’s Ainscough Crane Hire are affable enough company and their mighty rigs are undoubtedly impressive. But it’s hard to escape the impression that once you’ve seen one delicate operation to right a derailed train you’ve seen them all. Oh, and this is a series – let’s hope octane levels are cranked up next week, because otherwise this could be a long haul.
An international chain of creperies that has seven locations in London. This branch in Spitalfields Market, near Liverpool Street station, provides indoor and outdoor seating, as well as takeaways and local deliveries. The decor follows the brand's prominent black and yellow theme. Unsurprisingly, the highlight here is crepes. You can get them sweet (with cinnamon, strawberries and cream or apple crumble), savoury (with pesto mozzarella, Mexican chicken or hoisin duck), and for breakfast (eggs Benedict, full English or smoke salmon). Alternatives to the crepe menu include waffles, porridge, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, milkshakes, smoothies, softies, beer, wine and cider.
