I see that Ade Edmondson, actor, comedian and erstwhile Bad Shepherd, will be cooking for Seth Lakeman in "Ade in Britain" at 4pm today on ITV1.

Why...?

Just watched it. I have to say that Seth Lakeman isn't my favourite musician, so maybe I'm biased, but after a burble by Ade Edmondson about folk songs carrying the stories and traditions of the country, we then got a short burst of Seth Lakeman singing a song he had written a month before and when Ade asked for its significance he said it was 'about the country and someone writing letters'.
Never mind, my opinion only and I expect lots of people thought it was brilliant.

Credit where it's due, Ade Edmondson was impressive in his role for a BBC Chernobyl disaster docudrama

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyHvDhILYl8

but if the only TV work currently on offer is pre-watershed cosy travel and cookery shows..

If you want to wind him up, corner Edmondson at one of his gigs
and ask him how he and Rik Mayall allegedly 'nicked' and neglect to credit the source
of the name for their breakthrough comedy act "The Dangerous Brothers"...

So far we have had Trevor Owen, well known clog maker to a lot of dance teams, John & Katie Howsen & friends, Sherringham Shantymen, Brittania Coconut Dancers, Winster Morris & quite a few others.
All credit to Ade for promoting traditional customs & folk activities.
Cheers

And by the way, unlike most comedians and presenters, he takes folk music seriously.

So, we complain when they don't, then we complain when they do...

I was pleased that there was not the slightest hint of extracting the urine in any that I've seen

And the licensed eel catcher from the Fens was priceless...

Yesterday Ade was in Northumberland and ended up cooking for and singing with the Unthanks, and not bad either.

Dave H - the cooking was VERY basic and the Unthanks as mediocre as usual. Not a good advert for Northumberland.

It's been a good series, though I've not caught them all.

I think that previous posters are unfair on the cooking as I think his aim was to highlight simple regional foods/dishes from ingredients that would have been available to and affordable by ordinary people. Nothing wrong with that, IMHO and my wife made something very similar to the dish he cooked up for the Unthanks. The difference was she didn't top it with cheese but layered some bacon in instead and it was delicious.

Also as has been said earlier he has been highlighting traditional music and dancing and has taken it seriously and given the people a chance to say something about what they do and its origins.

Last in the series tonight and he was in Kent - with a Morris side at the end.

Well said Tootler. Ade makes the point that these dishes were made by people with little money to "fill you up" as he put it, and as such it's a very valid piece of social history.
I do however think that some traditional Northumbrian pipe tunes would have been preferable to the ubiquitous Unthanks with their rather dodgy harmonies.

I see no problem with any air time given to Folk music and performers.
As for the food, I've seen a lot worse on various programmes. Let's hope there are more similar progs to come. Remember, there is no such thing as rad publicity!!
