Snow go for Dan

From here:

Dan Snow may be happy not to be in the shadow of his father, the veteran television presenter Peter Snow, but he has clearly not yet convinced the BBC.

The 30-year-old historian was invited to travel with Peter, 71, through central Europe for the programme Around the World in 80 Days, as part of the BBC’s Children in Need coverage.

Mandrake hears that when Peter turned it down it was decided Dan could not be paired with anyone else, or present on his own. “Having Dan in another context wasn’t in the mix,”confirms a spokesman for the Beeb.

I heard about this programme earlier in the year and it seems a shame that Dan is not now involved – would probably have been pretty interesting!
