Introduction Mark Holdstock was a BBC Radio Four presenter, on Farming Today, until the management decided he wasn't very good any more. Almost three years on he then discovered why, he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). This is what happened next. All of the opinions expressed here, however misguided, or plain barking.... are his own and nobody else's....although sometimes he thinks that the BBC, is so ill and bewildered that it needs some-one else to have its opinions for it.
