B***** incidental music

I am just enjoying Jim al Khalili's programme on Sellafield/Windscale - or I would be enjoying it if it were not for the gratuitous overlay of orchestral music and sound effects. Bettany Hughes' otherwise excellent programme on Buddha was similarly marred.

May I suggest to BBC an extra use for the Red Button? Just as one can use it for a choice of Welsh- or English-language commentary on sporting events on S4C, could one not select documentaries with or without extraneous music?

Sadly, not even this would be available for Radio 4.
