DAMN YOU, AUNTIE!

At its best the ABC serves up material so good that it stops you doing what you really should be doing. Ten minutes of such pristine programming occurred this morning, when we heard extracts of the correspondence between Angus and Robertson editor, Beatrice Davis, and that prickly genius Xavier Herbert.

More! More! More!

Too bad; it's already finished.

Does make it hard to put up with the pseuds, ideologues and numb-wits Auntie squanders so much of our gold on.
