I didn't know what "Oranges and Lemons" is, and I wondered what sound 
the fruits might make, but I looked it up on Wikipedia and heard a 
recording.  Now that I know what it is, I do remember when the BBC began 
using that tune as an interval signal.  Later, they went back to the 
chorus of bells that they had been using before.
