Thank you for the tip. This is of course from "The New Elizabethans", one of those lovely series of short programmes that R4 love and I have picked up some gems already amongst the 60 chosen, some not known to me at all like Michael Young who founded "Which", the Consumer magazine that has given me a lot of good advice over the years. He was also heavily involved in founding the Open University.
