Royal Albert Hall

Royal Albert Hall: During my days with the BBC I would yearly present the British Fashion Week Awards live from the Royal Albert Hall. I learned from Selina Scott never to be parted from my script even thought there was autocue. It could and did go down - leaving us with only a rolled paper to list to refer to. Live TV is never dull.
