Yes, take a tab and everything will seem OK.

In word go to 'paragraph' settings. Under 'indentation' change the 'special' dropbox to 'hanging' and the 'by' dropbox to 4cm- that works well. Hit tab after the character name or whatever et voila!

Unless every T is dotted and every eye poked out, the BBC are legend for rejecting scripts due to a missing full stop. As far as beeb are concerned if you can't get a simple full stop right, how can the rest of it being any good.. think about it.

Stands to reason, as Alf Garnett would have said.

I would say it's nice to get the format as close as you can but no need to be anal surely. Not unless anal is your thing.

As you were..
