Since these arrangements appear to have been submitted, unsolicited, to the Beeb, I'd guess none of them was authorised...

I saw this tonight when we bought a paper near the RNCM, and was hoping to get back home after the concert & tell everyone about it. (Did you know if you buy a paper at a university you often get it at a much cheaper price? How credit-crunch-defying is that?)Isn't it exciting? Once again PM sets the agenda in real life. That spirited defence from Jo about the Upshares Downshares theme is proved correct. The world was just waiting for the resurrection of that particular piece of music. Maybe the producers might go for the Led Bib version - gritty & up-to-date. They just don't know they need it yet...
