The Pull of Gravity

  • Tim Madge


No one can be sure how many letters are received each year although a rough estimate is three million. In truth the figure may be even more, as the annually published figure is based largely on Programme Correspondence Section (PCS) returns and guestimates of regional inputs. Centrally, about half a million letters arrive each year. But producers and their programmes get hundreds or even thousands of letters which are not logged. Well-known programme-makers themselves will get many more, as will the personality presenters who choose to answer some, if not all, of their own letters. One Saturday morning programme series for children recently received in total five million request and other letters.
