An evidence based judgement...

An evidence based judgement…

Last night I had a little drink to celebrate the strange fact that I’ve been working at the BBC for 25 years.

This was really just an excuse to gather some of my favourite people together, play some of my favourite music and indulge in some embarrassing Dad dancing.

If you came, thank you for making it a great evening. If you couldn’t come I hope to see you soon.

Most of all thanks to my wife and kids, from whom all good things flow!
