Hi Tcejones, welcome to the forum.

We didn't know so we asked the chap who was the sound director on the series, Caleb Knightley (he's on Twitter, quite handily!) and he said it was Hildegard von Bingen - Ave generosa; and he supplied a handy Youtube link.

Hope this is what you were looking for.

Drew, there is no need to post this in every single board, it begins to resemble spam.  All posts but this one will be removed save for this one to remain for discussion.

Yes, that is interesting about Alison Hastings. Lets see how she responds.

I have made BBC management aware of the concerns regarding BBC Stoke from your threads. I have to comment that this is a forum, where views can be freely aired and that does constitute feedback. However, if complaints are to be formally made it would help if there is clarity about the nature of the complaint.

Networking of programs is very specific for example.

This letter has gathered considerable media interest.

It is important that there is a public contribution to the process of deciding the governance of the BBC. That will need to be demonstrated because looking around at the media comments , blogs and thinks it seems that the whole future of the BBC is now in danger.

NOT by the public who deserve a public broadcasting service(they are not going to get that from the commercial sector) But it is being put in danger by those in power who want to destroy it and unless the public care enough to stop that, it is likely the BBC will be something that was abused by those that failed to look after it and then had to give way to the powerful super rich with no interest in democracy.

North I hope you don't mind but I've moved your post to the Local Radio Board, simply so that it is more visible, apologies for causing any confusion.

I think Alex was more than dropped by the BBC, stitched up if this has any truth about it..

Given that Alex requested we removed all mentions of him from this forum - which mainly consisted of copies of his own words - under threat of legal action, I think it's safe to say there are two sides to every story.

Rustey thank you very much for your contribution, I've included the Trust document below so that readers can see easily the official response.  For some reason now I've embedded it here, the relevant ruling starts from page 24.

The administration of the forum will be reviewing the contents of this thread . It is clear that some comments have caused offence and that will be dealt with.

Apologies, I've amended the name of this thread to spare us the continued 'wrath of the anoraks' on twitter, we know it's BBC Essex and not BBC Radio Essex but usually have more important things to worry about :-)

With it set to be a busy and defining few years for the BBC we have decided to create a new board for posts around the subjects of Management & the Trust.

With the DCMS looking at the future of the BBC prior to charter renewal, the DMI fiasco, Pollard, Dame Janet Smith amongst other on-going concerns we thought we'd try to group them all together, please bear with us if you find we've moved some existing threads, nothing will be deleted.

Best regards.

BBC Radio Forum Team.

Posters are reminded that a difference of opinion about this thread topic is entirely valid and should be respected. Personal remarks and baiting behaivour for the purpose of disruption will not tolerated.

Rob Wilson, erstwhile pen pal of Patten gives his reaction.

The Forum understands that at a meeting of the CMS this morning it was decided not to call Chris Patten in to answer questions on the latest revelations of the 3m Pollard Review.

Instead, it is understood that it was decided to wait until early 2014 - when Patten is expected to appear before them on unrelated matters - to quiz the Chair of the BBC Trust.

Is this transparency and accountability?  Is this good enough?

It would appear that according to this piece by Miles Goslett that there is the possibility that the CMS committee is within it's rights to decide not to hold Lord Patten accountable for the continued Pollard revelations

On Tuesday, the Commons Media Select Committee votes on whether to question Patten again about his handling of the Pollard shambles.

The forum hopes that this is just a formality and that any decision not to hold the BBC Trust accountable will be transparent and accountable in itself.

The Forum asks, and will continue to ask, the CMS Committee for clarification of their intentions to afford licence payers accountability in this matter.
