Lost Leader

I was fascinated by the reaction of The Tinier to the startling news that Stuart Hood is going over to commercial TV. This story made the front page of almost every newspaper, including the Guardian and the Daily Telegraph. The Tunes gave it half a dozen lines at the bottom of a column on an inside page. I wonder why. And the news that Mr, Kenneth Adam is to take over Mr. Hood's duties will hardly boost morale. Where have all the young men gone?
