“I’d never heard of rhodium!”
Ben Thompson, Anchor, Inside Track, Business Live, BBC World Service TV, 9 October 2017, during a segment on gold and the platinum group of metals.
One can only assume that this BBC presenter never did chemistry, Mendeleev and the periodic table at school.
Sadly, it seems all too typical of the West’s collapsing standards.
Thompson has a degree in International Business and French from Cardiff University and a postgraduate diploma in Broadcast Journalism.
