Jim Naughtie Puts the N into the Cuts

Most of you will have read about or, indeed heard live, Jim Naughtie's delightful spoonerism on the Today programme which was followed by what he described as a "coughing fit" (sounded like giggling to me, Jim).

For the uninitiated, or those worldwide readers who don't even know what the Today programme is...

"Today" is the flagship BBC news programme on Radio 4 in the mornings, it usually features lots of politicians bickering with Mr Naughtie (pronounced "Knocktee") or one of his colleagues attempting to referee and remain BBC-impartial-and-balanced.

Then one day Mr Naughtie had to introduce Jeremy Hunt, the Culture Secretary......enjoy.....
