• In a report about Russell Brand’s new show on Radio X, formerly known as Xfm, we described the station as “digital-only”. To clarify: the station is available across the UK on digital radio (DAB), but can still be heard on (non-digital) FM radio in London and Manchester (Brand ‘sorry in advance’ before live radio return, 31 March, page 20).

• The Eyewitness photograph on the centre spread in Friday’s paper was captioned as showing restoration work on “an 18th century fresco” by Sir James Thornhill at the Painted Hall in the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London. The paintings that make up Thornhill’s masterpiece, often described as Britain’s Sistine Chapel, are not frescoes: a fresco is created by applying pigment to wet plaster; Thornhill used oil paints on dry plaster.

• The appearance of “an anathema” in an editorial, in particular the use of the indefinite article there, was anathema to some readers (Britain has walked out on a European marriage that it made as inconvenient as possible, 30 March, page 32).
