BBC Radio 3 is a curious mix of upper class and southern white middle class - the former in the shape of the likes of Petroc Trelawney and the 'up to' Oxbridge-type stuff you mention, Geoff, and the latter in the shape of ever more of the Proms programme, in which the BBC gives the 'plebs' what it thinks they want, i.e. rap and pop music Proms and the like. I can't stand it myself, but a lot of people seem to enjoy it, and it's their licence money rather than mine!
