    Neville Wortman: “The panel only heard what was played on the programme. We only played a minute of a record but if a record was rather unusual, we might choose something other than the beginning. The Righteous Brothers’ You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ would be an example of that. You want to give the panel a real flavour of what the music is all about. It’s like being a good publisher – they can tell from the first few lines of an unsolicited manuscript if it is something they want.”
