  1. Billy Ray – David has incorrectly labelled it “supersizers Go” which was shown last year on lifestyle channel. This new series is called “Supersizers Eat” and hasn’t been shown on foxtel yet. I remember the Go series – Giles and Sue ate a weeks worth of food from wartime, regency, restoration, victorian, elizabethan and 1970’s. This new series is the same format and covers 1980’s, medieval, french revolution, 1920’s and Rome. Be interesting to see if SBS cuts 15mins out for adverts or keeps to the original 60minutes.
