Unwanted noises WHY do TV companies give us programmes including documentaries and news, with music or percussion noises throughout? I find these intrusions make it hard to concentrate on the main theme of the programme.

I have spoken to several people about this and all have said they would like to stop these unwanted noises.

Someone suggested the background noise was to give atmosphere to events, if that is the case, why do we not hear these noises if the Queen or Prime Minister was addressing the nation.
