I am not alone in finding that the current BBC attitude to courtesy leaves almost everything to be desired, yet only a few decades ago, when I was producer of pre-classical music, all letters were either answered or acknowledged within two or three days. This is, regrettably, not now the case. Letters, music and scripts are either ignored or 'lost', no matter who the sender might be. Perhaps it is high time to replace inefficient and incivil servants with others who can maintain the earlier and more productive standards of radio communication.
