Sintesi dell'editore

Stephen Fry hosts this programme on the joys of the English language - as heard on BBC Radio 4. The uses and misuses of quotations are revealed, and there is also a frank confession from a quotation compiler, which we cannot divulge here.

The Title Rings True- Fry hits the Right Notes 3

Unlike ?QI: Advanced Banter?, this section is not just a long list of quotes but more an exploration of their nature (although it does include some good ones - e.g. 'Pretentious? Moi??' by Miss Piggy). Fry explores the meme-like nature of quotes & their nature, before looking into some users of quotes (such as Politicians & Celebrities). There is also a section on the institution that is ?Colemanballs? - tawdry, cliched & incongruent quotations made by Football commentators.
