But, for a certainty, back then,
We loved so many, yet hated so much,
We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...
Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
Whilst our laughter echoed,
Under cerulean skies...
Hmm, tough call. Ne/Si rational maybe.
I still think LSE. Interesting that years ago, in the recently bumped Pope Benedict thread, I had an inkling he was a LSE as well...although I know rather less about him.

@soundofconfusion I like the IEE suggestion, and I'm happy to go with it over LSE. The reason I favoured LSE is because the IEE traits people associate with him seemed to me like secondary traits, something he became over time, rather than something he began with. e.g. when he started at the BBC, it was all about making efficiently making good quality programmes according to "Reithian values" (John Reith was the first Director-General, from 1922, and said that shows should "inform, educate and entertain", in that order).
When David Attenborough first started making nature documentaries for the BBC, he travelled the world acquiring animals and specimens (e.g. like eggs), that often ended up in the London Zoo or his own personal collection (practices that would be frowned upon now - not really a meaningful detail, aside from the fact was a producer to begin with, not the presenter, and he was not a naturalist or someone who pursued such activities because he especially enjoyed them (that came later). So, from from my perspective, he had a sort of LSE businessman like approach to making programmes. But I don't see that as problematic for an IEE typing.
