I caught the bit in the paper about it too late to tune in, so it's good to know there's a repeat.

This was first broadcast on 10 November 10 2008 on BBC4 so maybe it is an annual event (I jest). It is particularly interesting for those of us who like to know more about the people who set our puzzles.
