Insufficient Punctuation.

Radio 3 has listed Tannhäuser, omitting the umlaut.  Standards are slipping at the Beeb, or has Zai Bennett, the controller of BBC 3 decided that he agrees with the citizens of Lancre, that one should avoid unnecessary punctuation?

A few weeks ago, Paxo made essentially the same mistake on University Challenge, pronouncing the name as though it has no umlaut.

At least they are being consistent!
