Despite the sensationalist trailer, I liked it. It was well balanced
with _reasoned_ criticism, and had interesting facts for listeners who

I thought it balanced and novel. I learned new things, heard old
stories, and was aware that Clive Anderson was invited to Gerard
Towers in Walthamstow.
Clive Anderson also hosted the TV version of "Notes and Queries", the
long running Guardian feature, along with Carole Vorderman. "Notes
and Queries" is a place for readers of the Guardian to ask questions

user contributed set of questions and answers, which lead to both two
TV series and about 6 or 7 books.
This column started in 1989.
