Quote: He is the BBC's latest star - the cab driver who a leading presenter believed was a world expert on the internet music business.

The man stepped unwittingly into the national spotlight when he was interviewed by mistake on the corporation's News 24 channel.

With the seconds ticking down to a studio discussion about a court case involving Apple Computer and The Beatles' record label, a floor manager had run to reception and grabbed the man, thinking he was Guy Kewney, editor of Newswireless.net, a specialist internet publication.

Actually, he was a minicab driver who had been waiting to drive Mr Kewney home.

Brilliant! Well done to the cab driver - he did well considering!

That is just gas!:applause:
(In the version I heard it was a chap who had gone to the BBC for a job interview 'wot' got mistaken for the expert and had to sit there in bemusement while they bombarded him with questions about the beetles and logos and stuff.)
Hee..the poor auld taxi driver.
I'd say there were some red faces at the BBC.
