I picked up Reginald Bosanquet's autobiography on Swanage Pier because it has such a great title. Sound advice really. For younger viewers, Reggie used to read the News at Ten in the days when there was only one news at 10. I haven't read it yet but it's clearly going to be a stormer. On page two, not even out of the foreword yet there's a great story from his co-anchor Andrew Gardner:
Two or three seconds before the start of News at Ten, Reggie would always turn to me and, pressing an imaginary pedal underneath his desk, he'd say just two words: 'Vroom! Vroom!' It became a comforting little ritual.
I think everyone should try this out tomorrow, to see if it speeds up the working week. Vroom! Vroom!
