    Overall
    "Unsurpassed Audio Entertainment Part 3"

    Like section 1), this isn't quite as brilliant as series one, but still interesting. Here the origins of the word 'Hello' are explored, including all the different greetings that can be used in English & how they can be used in a myriad of different ways.
    Naturally it includes Leslie Phillips classic 'Hello' from the Carry On films, as well as Cabin Crew whose job consists of saying 'Hello' approximately 1/2 a million times in their careers!
