Rosindell made headlines following the Brexit vote when he demanded that BBC One marked it by playing God Save The Queen before its transmissions closed down each night, despite the fact that BBC One transmissions have not closed down at night since 1997.
Radio 4 still does. Will Times Radio do so too?

Playing GSTQ daily is one of those things people who are as dumb as a box of dirt accuse the BBC of not doing, when they're actually virtually the only ones who are doing it.

See also: regular programming of a Christian variety. Nothing there, apart from Songs of Praise since 1961, the Daily Service (now on Radio 4) since 1928 (!!) etc etc etc....

Have a look on BBC Genome at the Light Programme/Radio 2 on Sundays during the 1960s. An astonishing amount of religious programming and yes, somehow those thinking the BBC is tantamount to Devilry has clearly missed that slot at 09:45 on DAB/LW, or the Choral Evensong every Wednesday on Radio 3 at 15:30...

I think - somewhere - I have my dad's pen knife, adorned with a Red Barrel keyring. Meanwhile, this is a fascinating article about that much-maligned beer:

(And yes, I remember Double Diamond. It didn't work wonders.)

Yet... Red Barrel was recreated. http://cat-asylum.com/p/red-barrel/

And so has the Watney's name. https://watneys-beer.com/
