There is little doubt about the satisfaction of many of us in
Shakespeare coming "Top of the Poll" in the BBC Radio 4 "British
Personality of the Millenium " Contest.

However not all of the other contestants were as "daft" as Baldric. I
gather that among serious contenders there could have been Queen
Elizabeth I and Samuel Johnson.

Charles Darwin appeared to have come fourth and the second most popular
was Winston Churchill ,of course. Still ,the Bard's genius won  out in
the end.
