    I hope the weather didn't spoil her day.

    By the way, has Carolyn dried out yet from Glastonbury? She managed to sound pretty perky on Sunday's Westminster Hour.

    because i'm doing a project on him at school and it would be really good to hear it.

    Mmmm... the engagement ring would appear to comprise a 0.75 carat square-cut brilliant white diamond.

    Highly marketable.

    Where did you say Sarah lived..?

    Speaking of the unspeakable weather the French have a saying:"Mariage pluvieux, mariage heureux". So here's to you, Sarah - for better for worse, in sunshine and in rain.

    Why don't you write to Grayson Perry and ask him. I don't think the BBC keep Desert Island Discs on the Listen Again but you can read about his choices here http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/factual/desertislanddiscs_20070218.shtml
    You could contact the audience line to ask if they will forward a letter if you sent in care of the BBC, or you might be able to contact him via one of the galleries where he exhibits. Just put his name into a search engine to find them. Hope that helps. Good luck with the project.

    Anne P - Thank you for replying to that query. I wanted to but didn't know how to help.

    You have also helped me, because I missed Christy Moore when he was on the week before last and now you have shown me where to find his choices.

    Is there a reason why it is not on Listen Again? Copyright? Royalties?

    I believe it was because the BBC couldn't agree permission to put it on Listen Again with Roy Plomley's estate.

    Mind you, I wish more programmes would be available as podcast/MP3 download. I can understand that say ISIHAC want to preserve sales of tapes and so on (but they could do that with bonuses and extended editions), but if the Now Show can be podcast, why can't the News Quiz?

    We the public have paid for the BBC, therefore the BBC, where it puts its content online, should endeavour to make it available in platform neutral formats ( http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/6236612.stm ) rather than forcing us to be beholden to the Great Beast of Redmond (or even the lesser RealBeast).

    Was the BBC dentist still examining you when you posted this one? ('Open wide Mr Mair' 'Ahhhhhhhhh!')
