Day 3 of advent, and a curio for the continuity enthusiasts. I know when this hybrid was used, but does anyone else recognise it? This message comes to you half-dead from the 24-hour McDonald's at Liverpool Street where I await the first train back to Lowestoft. I did a smash and grab raid on that London to undertake some research viewing at the BFI, attend the AQA 63336 Christmas party and do the radio stuff with Big George. The last of these went splendidly well, as you might expect. At points, it was hard to tell who was interviewing whom.

For anyone wondering what my connection to AQA is, I'm one of the researchers. I might even have told you what time your last bus leaves in the past. I also wrote most of the chapter introductions in the current Brilliant Answers book, so, in a sense, I have two books out there this Christmas. Give generously to an author who's not quite starving, but who seems to be landed with unexpected expenditure at every turn.

Heh, that's what one single overnight radio stint can do to you. You need a decade's worth of them, my friend!

This is instantly recognisable as the commemorative ident created by BBC backroom boys to mark the successful removal of Ronnie Corbett's prostate gland.

Inside Victor Lewis-Smith, isn't it?

Well spotted, Robin. Although Richard deserves a pat on the head for his brave effort.
