ANDREW Marr will explore the history of crisps in a new 26-part series on BBC1.
The titan of political fondling will take Britain on a 3.5 million year journey from the dawn of crisps to their dominance of the global world.
Staring into the camera, all serious, he said: “What was it that first inspired an ancient monkey to fondle a potato?
“And in solving that mystery, perhaps we might just learn something important about ourselves. Join me on a quest.”
The series will begin with the unearthing of an early potato in the Nile Delta before fast-fowarding to the 1960s as quickly as possible.
