Their television credits include over 20 series’ including Mums Know Best and Asian Adventure. In recent years, viewers watched Si and Dave on The Pubs That Built Britain, which saw them exploring hundreds of years of history and traditions of various British watering holes. 


Northern Exposure saw Dave and Si head north on a Baltic adventure in search of local flavours and cuisines, and in recent years the duo also celebrated Chinese New Year for a series on BBC2. For Chicken & Egg they biked across Europe, the Middle East and America in search of the best chicken and egg recipes.
