Sometimes on Radio 4 (The Home Service) they can have some very interesting programmes - it's not all Socialist Propaganda and to - day i found one

"Grey Flannels & Sandals"

In which Martin Jarvis and Christopher Matthew wander about the areas they grew up in and reminisce - it'a real delight. some years a go Alan Coren & Christopher Matthew made a number of such programmes in the same style - going around North London on a Bus with their "Freedom Passes" and it too was a delight but sadly that series hasn't been repeated.

Some will recognise Beatrice Harrison & her 'Cello with the Nightingale used throughout - explained at the end

Corruption in the CLPGS :
The Seven Social Sins are:
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character .Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle.

Money. Greed. Naivety. Falsehoods. Exploitation. Welcome to the wonderful world of gramophones!
