I entertained the idea of fusing together history and cooking on some YouTube videos I did a while back. A few years later a television company asked me whether they could borrow my Co-op Cooking Recipe cards (circa 1923) that I'd shown in my series of videos.

I wasn't even sure whether they were going to include them in the final cut but it was fun seeing my cards when the series finally came out: "Further Back In Time For Dinner".

What amused me most was that out of all the card subjects I've featured on my YouTube videos over the years, they picked one of the most underrated ones. I guess it's a classic case of the unusual trumping the popular.

I guess Ena was a forerunner of Mary Baker (is she still around?).  Giving you a recipe to play with goes a step further than all those cards which just gave you a picture of Liebig's extract, Huntley and Palmers' biscuits etc.  I like these obscure sets.  They may not be as valuable as Taddy's Clowns but they are much more interesting.  I have a set somewhere about how to build a radio.  I wonder whether it works.

Yeah, I just like them because they're a bit different from the norm. I don't think I'm going to don my chef hat and try them out anytime soon :D It would be cool to see someone try to build one of those old radios as per the cards.

Television programs that cover cigarette cards are almost as rare as the cards themselves but I managed to smuggle some on the Back In Time For Dinner series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCyoFkYUqcc

Watch the full version on BBC IPlayer: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08dx3lx/further-back-in-time-for-dinner-series-1-3-1920s

Sadly the BBC player only works in the UK.  Think how terrible it would be if someone in France found out how to make coconut pyramids.  All I can view is the Youtube excerpt.  But well done on getting your cards on TV.  It's still not clear to me whether they were original cards or just reprints.  I have heard terrible stories about what happens when collectors lend stuff to the BBC.  I wouldn't let my stuff anywhere near them.

The cards weren't in perfect condition when I sent them. I still wasn't keen on the cast putting their greasy fingermarks on them though, but they came back OK. I was a bit worried about doing a YouTube video but I noticed that a cereal packet collector, who had lent items from his own collection had done one.
