    Why do members of the JBJ panel have to be so sarcastic to each other? This spoils an otherwise enjoyable programme.

    Could we have some pictures of pretty girls? The concentration seems to be on expressionless head-nodders. Often the subjects chosen are bizarre in styles, ranging from near beatnik to femme fatale, while others are undeniably plain. Where is the warmth, sparkle and vivacity that we associate with youth. Surely there are pretty girls in the JJB audience who could charm our eyes, even though our ears are suffering.
    Miss Winifred Williams, Liverpool 25
