They say bad luck comes in threes…

Not a great day for the BBC then. First of all, Jim Naughtie mispronounces Jeremy Hunt’s name in just about the worst way possible – and then Andrew Marr manages to repeat the faux pas.

To top it off, Radio 4 somehow ended up interviewing an impostor rather than Liberal Democrat MP Mike Crockart.

In the fast-paced media world – and especially when broadcasts are going out live – it’s inevitable mistakes are going to happen. Unfortunately for the Beeb, they’ve managed a triad of fairly embarrassing bloopers in one day.

Still, bad luck is said to come in threes – so Radio 4 controllers must be hoping that’s it for the foreseeable future.
