Providing you can cope with the frankly appalling table-manners of Giles Coren and Sue Perkins, the other night’s Supersizers Eat… The French Revolution contains some interesting food history and all the might of the BBC costume department. Witness Perkins trying to glide in a corset and Coren decapitating eggs in the style of King Louis XVI. It seems to be viewable on BBC iPlayer for the near future at least.
