I Object viewers joined spectators in the public gallery of a courtroom that looked remarkably like a studio at BBC Television Centre for a series of trials in which members of the public gave voice to perfectly genuine grievances.
The objector may, for example, say “I object to plays without endings” or they may raise a point about the confusing number of traffic signs on the roads. Then learned counsel would rise to support the grievance. This could be Sir Charles Chester QC or Sir Edward Ray – in alternate weeks these gentlemen would support and oppose the complaints under consideration.
Then came the erudite balancing of pro and con by the former Professor of Ornithology who was now causing the Queen’s Bench to bend under his weight, Jimmy Edwards.
