Can anyone please tell me what that instrumental music was at the start?

PivotPivotPIVOT Sat 03-Sep-11 20:23:10

What, the classical music bit?

It's O Fortuna from Carmina Burana (I only know this because it said so in Private Eye this week, I am not cultured)

I am not entirely sure what Carmina Burana is. To me it sounds like a brand of Tequila.

P'raps it's an Opera.

I know, Madame, I was so appalled by my own ignorance and general philistinism that I looked it up grin

Though I was familiar with the work before I googled it I had no idea it was composed as recently as the 1930s. The things you learn from X factor threads eh?

No, not that one. The one I mean was when they were in taxis, doing their hair and getting ready etc. I am sure Pride of Britain use it too as have my local radio station.
