I expect most of you probably listen everfy week to Clive anyway on Radio 4, but you may not look regularly at the Radio 4 messageboards.   In the latest CJ thread there are a couple of mentions of the songs (MVs possibly?):  http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/mbradio4/F2766771?thread=6092167&skip=0&show=20

Yes, some interesting responses there, but also some depressingly miserable types who feel that a considered criticism of Clive is to call him a "tripehound". I did once post a couple of things on a BBC messageboard, but then found endless responses from people with a sense-of-humour bypass. I gave up.
The contrast between the frequently poisonous atmosphere on the Beeb and the pleasant, friendly tone of MV posts is yet another indication of our effortless superiority.  Wink

Hi Rob, yes, I read the beeb board too and quite agree with you. What a miserable, curmudgeonly read it was.

Aha - now you get an idea of what it's like to be a BBC producer!  In the 80s I produced four series of what was at the time the most popular scripted comedy show on the network (in terms of both numbers and audience appreciation, according to the research - and it won awards as well) but the only letters I ever received about it were complaints.
