Media Body: The BBC and the Oxford English Dictionary are asking members of the public
to join this project and help update the Dictionary with earlier evidence
for some of the more mysterious English terms. A television series on BBC2
next year will feature the results. The OED is appealing for a focused
effort on fifty words and phrases, which you’ll find listed at
www.bbc.co.uk/wordhunt and www.oed.com/bbcwordhunt.
