Good news. I have it on the very best authority that Series 4 of Only Connect will begin on BBC Four on Monday 6th September. Yess ! Only 10 days to wait. My sources have been unable to confirm that it will be keeping its usual time slot of 8:30pm, but surely the Beeb will be sensible enough to realise the power of putting it on straight after UC finishes over on BBC Two, and leave well enough alone.
Since I wrote the above post, David Bodycombe has been kind enough to confirm the above - which I will repost here in case people might miss it -
"It will be at 8.30pm, post-UC. The Radio Times listing says:
Epicureans v Courtiers
1/15, series 4
New series. Three old university friends with a shared love of exotic foods and fine dining pit their wits against a trio from the Northern Ireland Court Service to make connections between things that initially do not appear to be linked. Victoria Coren presents. "
