Awful lunch break at the BBC


Received a jolly nice email from Jo Harris-Cooksley who is the Assistant Content Producer at the BBC TV Blog inviting me to join in the general puffery for the BBC's TV and radio Symphony extravaganza. As Ms. Harris-Cooksley found me via a social media search I reciprocated and spent an absorbing afternoon reading her Twitter feed. Surrounded by tweets about BBC programmes was the one seen above. All of which reminded of the line by Wilfred Owen which Britten used in his War Requiem - 'Now men will go content with what we spoiled'.
