I remember years ago when my dad got me a Grundig shortwave radio after I begged him for it. I didn't find much but I do remember one of the first things I found was that program specific report. They were going through all the scores and kept saying "nil"... I had no f*cking clue what "nil" was so I just kept listening to it. Ran across it a couple of times over the years, it always seemed like something that would make someone smile half a world away if they were in war, or on an aid mission or whatever and wanted to see how the local team was doing...

Of course assholes in suits would scrap that.
