Stanley Unwin always made me laugh. Weird part is you could generally make sense of what he was saying despite it being composed of nonsensical words. I remember seeing a documentary where his family were interviewed and I recall they could also speak the way he did!

Exactly. Hard "T" as in tea not she.
BTW: Wouldn't "minuti" just do it without the "ae"?

As with many words, a comprehensive dictionary will give you a variety of possible pronunciations, with supporting reasons.

When I saw the word Britannia (actually 'Brittania') on a Roman coin, it struck me how close that must have sounded to today's Bretagne (Grande-Bretagne) in French. This tells me that they must have pronounced it somewhere in between, 2,000 years ago, i.e. apart from the guttural 'r', not so far off what we might imagine.
