We're a few days late on this but it's worth another mention. Next Tuesday, December 8th Ireland's RTE One television station will broadcast "Victoria and Shane Grow Their Own," a gardening show featuring The Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan and his wife Victoria Mary Clarke.

In the show the pair attempt to emulate a storyline from the `70s BBC sitcom The Good Life, which saw characters attempt to live sustainably by growing their own vegetables and raising livestock for food. In the MacGowan version the couple reportedly attempt to grow enough vegetables to live off of, plus host an end-of-summer party for their family and friends. There is currently no plans for the program to air outside of Ireland.
