    Thanks for that.

    Apparently there was a program on R4 at 20:30 called "Why Did We Do That", about the motor car
    taking away peoples' freedom to use the streets during the 20th century.

    I plan to catch it later on Listen Again: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/progs/listenagain.shtml

    It was good to see she's from a cycling "family" - ( like Chris Boardman.) I think she has the
    potential to become the best ever UK cyclist - all the best to her.

    Lots of nice touches, from Meyer Hillman on the predictability of accents to the Pedestrians'
    Association on their wars with the AA & RAC in the '30s. The McGuffin was the way we moved from
    looking out for children to demanding that children always have 360-degree awareness of any
    potential threat.

    But surely the really important news is that Elisabeth hired a tandem for Nigel's birthday.

    Nah - but if Clarrie had hired one for Eddie's birthday that *would* be news!

    I caught this too. Very good. I liked the bit about "Play Streets" in Manchester in the 1930s. An
    excellent idea, showed great promise in cutting road injuries and deaths but was not taken up.

    Does this pre-date the Dutch "Home Zones" that we are now talking about importing?

    I also liked the rather pompous pronouncements of politicians years ago arguing against setting
    speed limits because drivers were gentlement and should be trusted to make their own judgements. Who
    did that remind me of?

    Yes, isn't it a pain that you have to do that to listen to the Beeb. :-(

    Agreed. Oh why oh why oh why do they insist on using this Real Player crap?

    Mm... the Ogg trial was so promising. Let's hope they 'get more staff' soon...

    She gets to be the one-page portrait article in this week's "Golwg", too.

    You don't get to see the article, of course, because they're selling it on paper, hm, but
    http://www.golwg.co.uk/pages/showpage.asp?pubid=1&edid=311&ssid=26&aid=2462&pid=2809

    What's all the fuss about? People come off bikes every day... apparently.
