Oh dear, BBC! There are bloopers, and then there are bloopers, and then there is having a reporter on a programme specifically devoted to religious topics declare that Martin Luther was a personal acquaintance of J. S. Bach and often listened to his music in the Thomaskirche in Leipzig (24 minutes in).

Anyone can make a slip of the tongue, but this was a pre-recorded report! It must have been signed off by the editor of the Sunday programme, and although I was drifting in and out of sleep I don't remember an apology at the end of the show either. Surely their Twitter account must have been chirping like the dawn chorus?
