Brompton on the UK Wireless!
Yes, we still call it the 'wireless' over here.
BBC Radio 4 PM News slot at 17:18 has a colour piece on the success of the Brompton folding-type bicycle.

Mainly about retail profits, and not at all about bicycling. Tomorrow, a BBC piece about microwaved buns selling like folding bicycles.

It was on the radio. Maybe the BBC 'Listen Again' feature has it.
