[northwestengland.pm] Perl on TV

At the Christmas social I recounted my plan to sneak a mention of Perl
on to TV. That came to fruition this week, when this was broadcast on
BBC4 on Monday: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00rm4j1

The bit with Perl is from 21:05 (or start at 17:30 for an explanation of
what's going on).  It's repeated tonight at 19:30 for anybody who
prefers watching on an actual television.

When discussing answers afterwards they didn't use the additional
information about Perl I'd provided, and this is hardly going to provide
major publicity for Perl -- but from following #OnlyConnect on Twitter
it apparently at least got a few people yelling programming languages at
their TV.
