Anglophones and lovers of the English language may be interested in a new BBC TV series starting tonight on BBC 2: Balderdash and Piffle. It aims to track down the origins of curious words and phrases in the language. If you can't get BBC TV, never fear, the website is as excellent as you would expect from the Beeb: http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/programmes/wordhunt/
- with loads of interactive content and appeals for people to send in evidence of the first usage of certain phrases.
