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 sometimes wonder if BBC policy is determined by what might be acceptable at an Islington dinner party . As for Deborah Moggach, her novel Heartbreak Hotel was one of the worst I have read this year. If you want a much wittier better written insight into superannuated sex I suggest you read Meg Wollitzer ‘s The Wife.
