    "bust of Mr Speaker Morrison" - this is the former Speaker of the House of Commons, Mr William Morrison.

    "Lady Chatterly and Lover" should read Lady Chatterley and her Lover.

    Despite the commentator's pronunciation, "Lik Battaglia" in text and tags should read Rik Battaglia.

    "The Bishop of Southwark" - his name is Mervyn Stockwood.
