Trish Burgess views TV treats while travelling abroad
When you're on holiday abroad, do you find yourself watching the local TV channels, even if you don't understand what's going on?
In Finland they show Who Wants to be a Millionaire? in the same format as at home. Even the presenter looks a bit like Chris Tarrant. I'm presuming he's not going to be given the heave-ho now that Jeremy Clarkson has taken over back in the UK.
They broadcast the quiz every morning, so we watched it as we getting into our skiing togs. We had a decent stab at the answers, performing well when we recognised a place or person's name. Otherwise it was guesswork, as there are no real clues when you try to decipher the Finnish language.
