Shock horror: Something of interest on the BBC

If you haven’t seen this already, and you live in the UK, you should really download Thursday’s Money Programme from BBC i-player, on the state of publishing in the UK. Most of what’s there isn’t new (it shouldn’t be to most of us) but it’s framed in a frank manner and it’s quite interesting to see the view from all sides of the bridge. (Plus you get to see back-stage at places like Amazon, the Frankfurt Bookfair, a literary agent, Richard and Judy’s infamous book club etc.)

Worth a gander…

Belated thanks for this, Matt. A most enlightening programme (even if it does emphasise that only Richard and Judy or the celebrity autobiography guarantee success...)
