DVD of the week: The Hairy Bikers

RICHARD Bryson’s pick of the DVDs this week is the latest offering from the popular cooking and motorbike-loving duo the Hairy Bikers.

The Hairy Bikers: Mum Knows Best (Acorn Media, �25.99)

Sometimes you wonder about their hygiene – all that hair and maybe oil from their bikes somehow getting into the food – but amiable Simon King and David Myers generally make for good watching and eating.

In this, their latest venture, Britain’s best family recipes are in danger of extinction but who can save them?

Sounds like a job for our hirsute friends on two wheels to try and save the great British recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation.

So it is that they travel the length and breadth of the country meeting mums and discovering some highly tasty dishes that deserve to be revived.

-This series was originally screened on BBC2 and comes as a three-disc boxed set to be released in the second week of February.
