Chris Morris Or A New Nadir For The BBC?

We haven't heard or seen much of Chris Morris recently (The Day Today, Brass Eye).
I think I know why. He's working undercover on Radio 4's PM programme.

Yesterday they ran a piece on this year's Proms season being a "punch-up" between Vaughan Williams and Oliver Messiaen.
A reporter said to a conductor: "If this was a boxing match, who would win? Vaughan Williams or Messiaen?"
Don't tell me that wasn't written by either Chris Morris or Armando Ianucci.
If it wasn't, then the BBC's coverage of culture, always cited as a justification for the licence fee, sinks ever lower.
