The BBC should do right by Neil Innes

It was gratifying to hear Michael Palin on Radio 4's PM programme yesterday confirming that the warm personality of Neil Innes that came over the airwaves was a genuine reflection of the real man. If anything, he was too nice. Someone more aggressive might have succeeded in forcing the BBC to release a DVD set of The Innes Book of Records, Provided that the corporation has not actually destroyed the originals (there are precedents), it is surely right for the BBC to do justice to Innes after his untimely death which it did not do in his lifetime.

[Later] For reasons why, start with Jonathan Calder's post.
