    I think the Dutch would probably have got Jim'll Fix It on tv - they get (when I lived there), BBC1 and 2 as part of the "terrestrial" offering... One of the reasons a number of "cloggys" played cricket at my cricket club out there...

    I ve not seen much interest in it though. I don't think he was ever as much of a "legend"as he was in the UK, he was just that dodgy bloke off of the show with the medals.
