How did I miss this? I never have a clue what’s going on!
Well I thought it was funny, but apparently the speaker (Peter Jefferson, the voice behind the Shipping Forecast) is no longer working for the BBC as a continuity announcer.
The BBC says that’s a coincidence. I hope it is. It’d be a real shame for them to have given somebody the push for a trivial error that must have brought a smile to many faces.
