We watched a programme on TV last evening allegedly about Scotland. In reality it was a programme exploiting Scotland for the benefit of the career of the presenter – an embarrassing lady, nodding and winking at the camera, sometimes about the unfortunate being interviewed at the time – who equally fortunately, seemed to take it in good part. The cartoon above sets out exactly what I have thought for many years about how TV selects its presenters and “personalities”. You can present a programme about nuclear physics if you have a funny voice or wear scarlet trousers – but knowing anything about any sort of physics is of no importance whatsoever.
