Paper weight

Ah, the papers. Enough to turn a busy Director of Television into a one-man press office and rebuttal team.

Meanwhile Peter Preston in The Observer expresses his appreciation for BBC drama, and Lord Hall's investment. In the Sunday Times (paywall) Bryan Appleyard expresses his love for Radio 3. (On Twitter, the incoming Controller of Radio 3 expresses his enjoyment of ambient Icelandic music, which might alarm Mr Appleyard).  In the FT, Director of Radio Helen Boaden is criticised by a letter-writing professor for saying Radio 3 is "incredibly" different from Classic FM, when she should say "very".

In other news, staff in the Crypt of News at Broadcasting House have been warned of a continuing problem with newspapers; the plastic strips used to bind the bundles that feed the news machine are being carelessly discarded, and have become a trip hazard.
