It does help a lot when you're watching the TV programme, and there's  
a huge word MORSE going across the screen.

I once made up a story about how Beethoven was stuck for ideas after  
his 4th symphony, so he phoned around (it is a fictional story...),  
and one person suggested that he should call the next piece his "5th  
symphony", and because the Roman numeral for 5 was V, and V was for  
Victory, it should be call The Victory too. With the naming out of the  
way, he had to think about how it started, and so called up his friend  
Morse. Morse told him "well, V is Dit Dit DIt Dah in morse code, why  
not try that...".
