I watched it on Saturday.  I can't believe they came up with the line

"Don't bore us, take us to the chorus"   :D

If someone on this forum had come up with this line, I think we would have told them to change it.

They should have. Good industry advice, completely hokey lyric because of that.

Not available in my area (USA?).  Nuts.
...where the deer and the antelope play.  Well, they're not really playing.  They're fleeing in terror.

It is because we have to pay a license fee to the BBC.  So it is only available in the UK.  Sorry.
