Hidden away in the dusty curate's egg that is Radio Four Extra is easily the loveliest thing currently on the BBC. It is the late Alan Coren, reading a selection of his own columns. They are quite, quite brilliant. I'm not sure I really ever took in what a good writer he was. There is no one doing what he could do now. There is rather a sweet moment when the continuity announcer introduces the programmes, and says: the late, and very much missed Alan Coren. I can see now why he is so missed.
Anyway, if you have the BBC iPlayer, you can find the loveliness here.
Rather wonderful old picture of Coren with John Cleese; photographer unknown.
