We gather that things do not run as smoothly as they should down at BBC Bristol.
Apparently, someone in London recently sent an urgent video tape via courier which duly arrived in the post room at said outpost of The Corporation. One of the operatives therein - noticing that the label was peeling off - decided to replace it with a new one. He removed the original and stuck it on the fridge, intending to copy the address after lunch.
The next morning, the sender of the tape was surprised to find this voice message (mp3)
on his mobile. Enjoy.
