So, I finally achieved a minor, frivolous ambition: A letter published in the BBC’s Magazine Monitor :-)

[And for anyone actually wondering what the quoted Aitken Head was on about in the original article it’s a reference to the idea that if you cut him open he’d “bleed black and white blood”. Basically he’s trying to get across the passion and feeling involved, as well as how deep seated some things are.]

Incidentally, this isn’t the first letter of mine published. The first, long ago, doesn’t seem to have gotten a mention here.
