Also, is it me, or do many of you guy's shows lack background/ambient music? Like many of the shows are just dialogue only and whatever sounds from the environment, and I dont usually notice a score of any kind.
On the contrary, there is FAR TOO MUCH background music. This is a long-standing grievance for many people. Anyone who tries to watch historical documentaries, for example, will have noticed it. Producers seem to operate on the theory that the spoken word cannot be allowed to operate on its own, and MUST have a distracting musical background while the presenter is speaking, to set the "atmosphere". I assume this stupid principle has been imported from the film world. Similarly in sports, like the Tour de France. As long as there is live action, we're allowed just to see what's going on and listen to the commentary. But while things are being explained in the prologue, CRASH BANG WALLOP, there has to be a loud musical background underneath the words. Only the news programmes really escape it.
