Monday. That’s when I start. We have eight weeks to put five shows together, then they go out on Five from Boxing Day. Live. It’s… the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures.
The astute observer of my CV may recall that I worked on the Christmas Lectures back in 1990 – which was, in fact, the last time I worked in London, before I was even a student. So, I’m unreasonably excited about the whole thing. I only vaguely know where I’m going to stay, it’s only just dawned on me that I may not be able to leave London for Christmas itself, and the pay is rubbish. But… it’s the RI.
