Well, I enjoyed a bit of a humdinger with my old friend Deborah Arnott of ASH on the BBC News Channel on Saturday.
Great fun. See for yourself HERE. (Apologies for the picture/sound quality.)

Dave, it was your comment on THIS post (which I read on my iPhone moments before going on air) that prompted my reference to the Irish Times article.
As you can see, it went down a treat!
PS. I almost didn't make it to the studio in time. I went to the WRONG address because no-one told me that the BBC had moved to new premises (the other side Cambridge) three months ago!
So there I was, standing outside an empty building, when I got a call asking me where I was. It was 4.20 and I was due on in ten minutes!
Fortunately the producers managed to delay the item. This allowed me to drive across town as fast as I could and I was on air - slightly breathless - at 4.47.
Can you tell?
I'm not sure if I should mention this but a News Channel producer later rang me and left this message:
"Simon, that was among the most entertaining pieces of TV that we've seen all day, and very informative and balanced ... We really appreciate your input, so thank you very much for participating. We really hope to do business with you again sometime soon."
I've always liked the BBC!!
