I watched Simon Sharma programme this morning. One bout Henry II.

Why does every programme about the middle ages have to have plain song played all through it?

It is not as if current afairs reports have Kaiser Chiefs playing ll through them.

why do they have to enhance every " shocking" statement with background noise?

why does the news or weather have to have sampled music played over it, and as for the news with that annoying dad da da...beep beep beep.......through it............Yikes!!

Why do advertisements play great songs in the background and you have to google them to find out what the song is and who sings it.
