My first thought is that this demonstrates why AR is a great writer (as opposed to a great children's writer as I have argued at length before) and the best that can be said about Blyton is that for many of us she was a starting point, but otherwise she provided 'safe' reading in the sense the nearly every book is the same as the last one.
I'll have to listen to the programme and give it some more thought.
