Mixed is my view. I love the BBC but I've never felt that their music coverage was particularly good - at least the television side. Radio 3 gets music right but the television channels tend not to.

I do agree. It was a nice attempt by the BBC to do something right music wise. The Brubeck tapes were just phenomenal. Plus Dave doesn't have tat god awful droning american accent at that point.
