Sunshine, thunder & lightning and two TV shows!

So the first day at the Hay Festival was an eventful one. We went from bright hot sunshine to thunder, lightning and hammering rain...coming prepared with both factor 30 sunblock AND wellies was the right thing to do after all!

One of the nicest things we've got going on here, apart from filming Hay-on-Sky and What The Dickens?, is a series of colouring-in walls, drawn for us each day by the artist Jon Burgerman. The visitors to the Hay Festival then pick up one of our paint pens and colour whatever part of the picture they fancy. Community art-making at its finest...

The first Hay-on-Sky show of '08 went well - as did the recording of What The Dickens? but you'll have to wait 'til Wednesday to watch What The Dickens? I'm afriad! If you've missed tonight's transmission of Hay-on-Sky (was at 8pm) then don't worry - it's repeated again later and we'll have some of the highlights available on our HAY-ON-SKY website tomorrow:

For now this little bit of webcam footage we took at Jon Burgerman's art walls today:
