BBC Radio 3 - lies, damned lies, and statistics

'But while programmes and presenters change, listeners remain' - BBC Radio 3 controller Roger Wright writing in Telegraph Feb 6 2014

'In the last quarter of 2013 BBC Radio 3's total listener hours plunged year-on-year by 16.4%, driven by a decrease both in number of listeners - down 3.3% - and average hours per listener which were down an astonishing 13.9%'. - analysis of RAJAR independent audience data published on Feb 6 2014
