Do any of you watch this?

There was a lovely bit done by one of the celebrities using a necklace (in essence it was a well done rope off stick routine). Does anyone know how to do this, as I've got a use for it in a Bizzarre routine I'm thinking of.

Assuming not many people are aware of it, may I direct you to:

It's an against the clock anagram-style game, I found enjoyable.

Here’s one of my favourites (paraphrased) from the previous episode:
A man is headed upstream in a canoe, from Smallville to Grandtown (distance six miles), starting at 10am. Exactly halfway there he spots a horse in a field and, in shock, his hat falls off and begins to float away. He continues upstream and upon reaching Grandtown, turns back immediately and paddles towards Smallville, which he reaches by 2pm. Strangely enough, when he reaches Smallville it is exactly the same time that his hat arrives.

Q: How fast is the river flowing?

Assume the canoeist travels at a constant speed (either up or downstream) and simple physics applies throughout.
