Billy Liar Update

I wrote here about the fiftieth anniversary of Billy Liar and complained that no one seemed to be marking it. Wrong! Next Thursday on Radio 4 you can hear Billy Liar: Fifty Years on, presented by Blake Morrison. Of course it's on at a silly time when I'm unlikely to be listening so I hope it will be available to listen again.

I'll just get in another rant about the BBC website. I knew the programme was on because I'd heard a trailer for it. Searching the site, though, brought up 0 whereas Googling found it in a flash. Harrumph!
