Well, there we have it. The King's English (1931) is proof that the BBC really did have a sinister plot to make everyone speak English like... well, the BBC. Luckily, in a past designed by Heath Robinson it was never going to work.

All of British Pathe's films are now apparently available on Youtube, which may turn out to be a time sink deeper than did ever plummet sound. Reel 2 doesn't seem to be included, however, so we'll never know whether the Frenchman was convinced.
