    Another French one that I enjoyed was The Crimson Rivers which can probably be found on easier to access services than all4.

    You'll need a VPN I think. I've never tried to use iPlayer outside the UK though, so I'm not sure how effective their system is at blocking non-UK users.

    Another fairly recent BBC1 drama I enjoyed was Informer

    For the year of 2020, Sahel Sounds presents "Music from Saharan WhatsApp." Every month, we'll be releasing an EP from a musical group in the Sahel. Every album will be recorded on a cellphone, and transmitted over WhatsApp, and uploaded to Bandcamp - where it will live for one month only. Available for pay as you want, 100% of the sales will go directly to the artist or group. After one month, the album will be replaced by another one, until the end of the year.

    The best salt and vinegar crisps I've had are Iceland's "Luxury" salt and white wine vinegar crisps. They're so strong they strip layers off your tongue and make your lips peel.

    The smartphone is an amazing thing. It has empowered millions of people around the world by giving them a means of communication and access to information, knowledge and learning they could only have dreamed about a few years ago. Your view is a particularly western one, where such things are taken for granted and viewed through a lens of cynicism and aloofness.
