Fox v BBC

Listening to the excellent radio 4 arts programme Saturday Review, I was rather shocked at Deborah Moggach’s side swipe at FOX as hideous. My American broadcasting friends are appalled by the BBC Jimmy Savile cover up. If it was a a shareholding company like Fox it would be sued to pieces. I [...]

One of its qualities is the way it treats an issue both in discussion in the round and on the macro level of the characters.

Passions spill over at the Emirates

Before I fell from the fifth floor of Danny Murphy’s mock Tudor mansion in Worcester Park, I used to do the windows of a delightful Arsenal fanatic Nigel whose family live off Wimbledon Common. As often as not we would repair to the Fox and Goose for a few ales and discuss the travails of our [...]

Sex survey results fail to impress

Yesterday the latest National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (15,000 interviewees) was launched, after being published in the hallowed pages of The Lancet. Needless to say, it amassed a significant number of column inches – because sex always does. The headlines seemed to be twofold. [...]
