There was a piece on the Radio 4 Today programme the other day about Alzheimer’s disease and a sufferer was talking about his experiences. Mrs W pointed out that he sounded more lucid and coherent than we often do. Sadly, I could only concur. That’s the thing about Radio 4. Even the interviewees who are suffering from dementia seem to be brighter than the average person in the street. They may lose the plot, but they wouldn't lose their invitation to next week’s award ceremony in New York. Or that letter from their publisher promising them another £50k advance.
