BBC Radio Tweed
At a bloggee's request I have posted the image of the Workingman's Institute in Duns, home of a BBC studio-keys obtainable from the newsagent (in case you want to seize it and announce a change of regime in Berwickshire) The studio is apparently owned by BBC Radio Tweed-programmes seen here
which seems to be Radio Scotland masquerading under the Tweed logo as I could not detect a really local, local programme.
"Here is the Tweed News: There isn't any. The headlines once again"
According to the studio log book the previous user to me was in May last year so no wonder the room was bloody freezing, but at least the BBC headphones kept my ears warm and the whole shebang worked very well all the way to Belfast, Norn Iron.
But I was spared the heart stopping moment in an empty cubicle/studio in Belfast when I was about to join the Today Programme; as Sue MacGregor said 'Good Morning Huttonian-or words to that effect the door burst open and a cleaner, with bucket and mop strode in-it was difficult, without alarming the waiting millions, to respond to Ms MacGregor and at the same time to get the cleaner to ,er, go away. 'Are you there?' anxiously asked the presenter.
I could assure her I was. Alone. At last, in a cleaner less, uncleaned environment.
Exiting the cubicle, pontification completed, I fell over the bucket.
Perhaps my gesticulation to the cleaner had been misunderstood. Less courteous then I intended
