Thread Name: BBC Radio4 - Morpurgo's Folk Journeys
Subject: RE: BBC Radio4 - Morpurgo's Folk Journeys
re musical noise behind mainly spoken events, such programmes as BBC Feedback sometimes tackle this but the BBC reps always say basically that it's a modern approach!

That dismisses it as a problem only to older people- what rubbish. Even the World Service suffers badly from it, and Mark Mardell's Sunday 'World at One' on Radio 4 normally has several irrelevant pop songs in its 'modern' approach.

   I know nothing of TV- gave it up years ago & while I've not heard the programme in question, a lot of time for Michael Morpurgo, it's pretty certain that without such a celeb to front it, they'd never have made the programme!
