BBC Radio 1’s longest show ever with Chris Moyles and Comedy Dave for Comic Relief

Incidentally, this is probably the most I’ve listened to BBC Radio 1 for years.

A couple of fabulous tweets this evening from my work colleague @doctorvee about this page on the BBC News website with the title “Pension age workers on the rise says [Office of National Statistics]”:

Even by the standards of BBC News, this is a totally weird photo to use […] as though the experiences of Bruce Forsyth dancing with Tess Daly is indicative of wider trends in society.”

Wise words.
