You missed out the inclusivity spending.

Thing is, I find I watch precious little BBC TV these days... but I listen to the radio far more, especially R3.
Ditto me and RadioFourExtra.

Yes to both of those and Radio 6 Music for an afternoon listen (it's an acquired taste but something about Shaun Keaveny's slovenly, shambolic style of radio presenting just clicks for me).

The musical genre shows that Radio 2 does just before the graveyard shift on weeknights is good for a catch up as well. And Cerys Matthews could read an ordnance survey guide to me and I'd be entranced by her accent :oops:

Don't know anything about the subject, but this screams "Welcome onboard your Concord flight! You'll be in the capable hands of Captain John Delorean" at me.

I can see it turning into another of these:

Doubtless some of these funds did well, like Texas business generally. But it wasn't very transparent, and the next governor of Texas shut it down.

Cummings likes this "high risk, high return" stuff, apparently. He was also rather sanguine about free schools failing- it's a revolution, maaaan.

I wonder if he's quite so daring with his own money. I can't imagine he's in the habit of betting a grand on the 3,30 at Lingfield.
