One of the consolations of being ill over the festive season is a chance to sample more telly.
Not just my staple diet of Cribs on MTV or absolutely anything on BBC Parliament, but the wider options available in the multi-channel 360 degrees multi-platform world we now inhabit.
So it was that I happened to catch the contribution of a Plaid Cymru parliamentary candidate to the "Best of British" season on Discovery Real Time.
Heledd Fychan, for it is she, co-presents a programme called Waterworld with a promising unknown by the name of Timothy West.
Plaid must be grateful for the boost to her electoral chances the repeat showings may give her - not every broadcaster would be so relaxed about candidates presenting programmes during an election year.
Perhaps contributing to a "Best of British" season on TV is another way of downplaying independence as a Plaid policy.
I'm no expert but Heledd's co-presenter appeared a natural in front of the cameras and could possibly go far in television.
