"Tonight's edition of The Antiques Roadshow came from Southwell Minster.  In
her introduction Fiona Bruce explained that a minster was created by a
community when priests and the local community got together to finance and
build one as a mother church.  She explained that the difference between a
cathedral and a minster is that the cathedrals had monastic origins, whereas
minsters were community mother churches.  She said that Southwell is one of
only five minsters in the country!"


Not having a television, I never see such programmes. Are the Antiques
Roadshow's introductions generally like this - i.e. complete bollocks?
