/ how annoying is iain stewart (out of ten)?
2? he's ok!
10, even worse than Neil Oliver.
No he doesn't bother me. At least there aren't masses of lingering shots of him gazing thoughtfully into the distance, à la Dr Brian Cox documentaries.
Yeah, I reckon he's not as bad as Mr.Oliver (a fellow resident of Stirling). And neither Dr.Alice nor Ms.Humble or Ms.Bradbury swoosh their hair as much....
(Btw, lingering shots of Dr.Alice are fine by me.....;0)
Your irrational dislike of Scots is showing through again. Oliver's a cock, but there was absolutely no need to bring him into it, other than his shared nationality with the subject of the OP.

On the contrary, he shares the same madly irritating and unnecessary habit of trying to make things that intrinsically interesting sound startlingly dramatic.
The other thing they share are a knowledge of their subjects and the ability to be both stimulating and illuminating when not indulging themselves in amateur dramatics.
I love the Scots. Fyfe Robertson: now there was a real pro.
I can quite belive it. It's just that some people seem to want to dislike presenters of tv programmes about thing they have an interest in.
A bit self-defeating in the end.
What about that long-haired tw*t from Springwatch then? :-)

I can't really watch springwatch. Interesting wildlife and great photography ruined by juvenile commentary, unless its improved from last spring (or autumn).

I like him too. Certainly could see myself cragging with him and having a pint afterwards.
I blame the egotists behind the camera rather than the ones in front.
