As usual I was flitting through channels but certain it was a News report, and think it was BBC

Yes, it was the BBC News at 6 and 10 pm last night (Wednesday 7th).  The chap reckoned he had a certain facial likeness to Cheddar Man, but I couldn't see it, though they did both have blue eyes!

Is this man what was originally called the “Red Lady of Pavaland” or something similar?

No. I believe Paviland is in Wales. The skeleton was about 33000 years old and was actually male.

I remember watching a program a few years back where they talked about doing the DNA test to see if they could find living relatives, they decided to test a school class, they had 20 test kits but on the day there was only 19 children in the class so they tested the teacher as well and he turned out to be the one related to Cheddar Man.
