Makes you wonder if your need TV. Great history related "Start the Week" with Andrew Marr this morning. Made me fell ignorant about Uk history and Heroditus though.
The enigma that is Michael Gove!! He was generally pretty interesting on the program before a telling slip when discussing Churchill and Gallipoli - he noted that Churchill defined political success (or words to that effect) as the ability to move from failure to failure with unbridled enthusiasm. A very fitting quote!!!
Thank goodness R4 has resisted the need to dumb down like so much if the rest of BBC. The following program Book of the Week was pretty good too until the car journey finished and I had to stop listening sadly.
