Only 200 years out, and it's not like either of them is famous...
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?


Perhaps Martin's godson, Martin Luther King Jnr, sometimes sat in on the sessions too.

Luther Vandross was no doubt also of the party.

And Lex Luthor... I am sure they all had fun.


And together they wandered up to the forests of Switzerland and ate spaghetti strands off the trees.

I did think to check the date!

You learn a lot from the BBC!
