Yes, just proving you can't believe what you hear on BBC.  However, seriously, I would love to know where the bollocks came from.

  "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?
