Guardian wins Correction of the Day

From the Guardian:
An episode of Radio 4's In Our Time programme reviewed in Friday's G2 ... was not last week's episode as the article suggested. It was an archive episode that was broadcast in 2003, which the reviewer listened to via the BBC's website.
Always remember, folks: journalists are trained professionals and we bloggers are just amateurs.

Still, the Corrections and Clarifications column is one of the Guardian's most entertaining features, so I shan't be so churlish as to reveal that this howler was perpetrated by Nosheen Iqbal, "Acting Culture Editor of and G2's radio critic".
