LETTER: Decade of change

From Mr Paul M. Pearson

Sir: Was I alone in noting the irony of the BBC's mid-evening viewing on Saturday 15 July. On BBC1 the National Lottery Live. On BBC2 the Live Aid Concert commemorating the tenth anniversary of the concert. The contrast is a poignant and sad reminder of the changing consciousness of this nation in those 10 years.

Yours sincerely,

Paul M. Pearson
