Gherkin, the Cheesegrater etc. Inside one, a man in a sharp suit checks his reflection and strides on purposefully to a meeting, where another man is spouting impressive figures, a pitch perhaps ...

What is going on? I was after bumbly blokes, bucolic charm, gentle wit, the occasional unearthing of, if not treasures, then scraps from the past - not the frigging Apprentice.

Wait though, it is a pitch, for a new solar farm. The pitcher unscrolls an aerial photograph of the site, Church Farm, near the town of Danebury. Now, when we go closer in, we can hear birdsong and see two figures, less sharply dressed, less purposeful, ambling, shambling, with metal detectors ... They are Lance and Andy and it is Detectorists (BBC4), thank God.
