As a Balliol historian, Dan Snow would have added some serious gravitas to the programme. Tant pis!

However, reflecting on the content-lite nature of this item of edutainment from the prism of Mr Erdogan’s version of a “democracy”, Turkish television has pretty much run out of gardening and cooking programme repeats so why not try flogging them “Airport Live” as some scheduling polyfiller?

The sub-titling ought to be very cheap: for at least one third of the “show” they could simply put “Presenter saying nothing worth translating — just waving hands around”.
