Driving into work this morning was a delight. Yes, the traffic was a little lighter. Yes, the rain has stopped and the view over to Knoll Hill to the wind farm was magnificent. But the reason for joy was Radio Four.
It’s not every day that the NUJ go on strike and the channel has to dig through the archive and repeat old shows – but the selection this morning was exceptional. Wearing my PR hat, may I express solidarity with my comrades in the NUJ. Wearing my listener hat can I offer my thanks to the editorial staff.
Could news-free Friday become a permanent feature?
Here are links to the NUJ and the BBC with more information.
