    As a sketch on a comedy show it is brilliant and an excellent parody (though there are many better) As a contribution to the musical culture of the nation less so

Timothy Dudley-Smith (b.1926) – Former Bishop & Hymn Writer 3. Valdus Adamkus (b.1926) – Politician 4. Margaret Stuart-Barry (b.1927) – Writer 5. William Smithers (b.1927) – Actor 6. Hans Blix (b.1928) – Weapons Inspector 7. Peter Easterby (b.1929) – Horse Trainer 8. Joy Whitby (b.1930) – TV Producer 9. Larry Merchant (b.1931) – Boxing Commentator 10.

Johnathan Gash (b.1933) – Writer 20. Michael Frayn (b.1933) – Writer 21. Sylvia Engdahl (b.1933) - Writer I am not saying these would be better picks and my areas of interest are quite clear from the names selected I lost a lot of data last year so my list of those names that has not been picked for eight years of so is gone but I might be able to update last year's top 20 All of these would be good 20/20+3 names
