Throwback Thursday sees us reminiscing about the glorious summer heat of 2018 when the team were at Blenheim Palace for Countryfile Live with our friends at The Camping & Caravanning Club. The beautiful parkland grass was parched and audiences wilted under scant shade – but redoubtable campers Elsie and Nipper were in their element! Stationed under the canopy of a mighty beech tree next to a display of some of the finest vintage tents and caravans from the CCC archives, they engaged families with traditional camping values – the efficient pack, family time, the right equipment, and camping cuisine – with games, quizzes and activities! Who will forget the cabbages in quickfire game show ‘Mess or Muddle!’ Those days seem like a million miles away right now, on another freezing and rainy day during lockdown 3 – but like, Elsie and Nipper Chris, we’re made of solid stuff and will endure to see plenty more days of fun in the sunshine with audiences in the future. In the meantime, we send all our very best in stiff upper lip to our audiences – see you on the other side..
