“I Got The…” by Labi Siffre is such a *tune* Ok, it’s got *that* sample in it, but it’s awesome by itself. Chas and Dave play on it too!

Best of luck to @crystaltips and Littleloud at the Broadcast Digital Awards tonight!
Maybe in a globalised, connected world, Govs only have enough control for grand gestures where they have a monopoly - ie Health, Defence
In many areas - ie finance, media, comms - gov policy can only be tactical - nudges to incentivise, and bailouts when the shit hits the fan
As many of you pointed out, that was a very catty last tweet. And illumina won another award for the bbc (deservedly so). Claws retracted.
Guarding against hubris and complacency
Didn’t realise that the BBC won only *one* RTS Education award last night: http://3.ly/y81 How much is their education budget again? :-)
battlefront lost the ‘innovation award’ to BBC schools report. Oh well. I think that teaching kids to change the world is more important..
Thinking it’s a bacon sandwich kind of morning.
At RTS Education awards. We have 4 nominations in 3 categories. Fingers crossed…
We won for the amazing KNTV Sex!! And Tern Tv rightly thanked Stephen Collins, our brilliant C4 lawyer, in the speech. Battlefront up soon..
Azka’s wedding tonight, so kids at home with grandparents, whilst we’re in a posh hotel for the night. Yay!!!
