Rather typical of today's BBC, I'm afraid.

But let's face it, she's a lot better-looking than Brian Rust, who worked
for the Beeb all his life, and if asked in time could have done a far better
job without a fee. For all I know there's never-broadcast archive material
of exactly that.

Andrew, grumpily in Luxembourg

BBC hires an American dj to tell the story of the gramophone record.
Who manages to tell the story without mentioning the very first
commercially issued discs, the German Berliners from, roughly, 1889-1892.
