Since January, it's been possible to watch a genuine West Country cheddar maturing on live webcam, courtesy of West Country Farmhouse Cheesemakers. Over the past three months, more than 500,000 viewers have tuned in to see the cheese sitting there, going slightly gray with mold. This morning, with James Naughtie reporting live on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, a hand reached in and took a sample from the cheese. It was about as exciting as CheddarVision gets, and Clara and I were there to see it.
