In the article "The BBC Lollipops: treasure trove of great classics found in radio archives"(18 April) we wrongly stated that when the BBC entered a joint venture with Montague Lewis in 1990 to exploit its classical archives he was head of Pickwick Records. In fact, his 26-year involvement in that company had ended in 1988.

In 1994 Pickwick was granted a licence to market 100 discs of recordings from the archives and, contrary to the suggestion in the article, at that time it was already a wholly owned subsidiary of Carlton Communications plc. The BBC gave its approval to the packaging of these discs before their release.

We are sorry for any contrary impression given.
