I have read SD many many times and I never saw the algebra and the geography -- it did not impinge on my memory of the book.
BBC 4 is talking about the Luddites, they were only trying to protect their income - think of banks during the recession.
I was talking to a children's librarian at my local library - she had no knowledge of Enid B or AR, we had a long conversation on these authors. Although I bought a Famous Five book for my 12 year old daughter and on reading it I was a little disturbed by the sexism in the book.
