From Britten's Children to BBC impartiality

A major new report has just been published by the BBC with the trendy, but torturous, title of From Seesaw to Wagon Wheel. The subject is the BBC's impartiality, or lack thereof, and fear not dear reader, I am not commenting on the report, but you can download it here. But the author of the report is worth a comment. John Bridcut is an independent film maker who will be known to readers for his excellent documentary Britten's Children, and the book of the same title which has featured On An Overgrown Path. The book has just been published in paperback. Silly me, I thought it was to coincide with the Aldeburgh Festival, but Faber obviously had bigger things in mind.
