Eddie Mair | 22:00 UK time, Saturday, 9 August 2008

Are YOU going to send us your diary entry for today Saturday 9th August, 2008?

George Orwell's diaries - which he began to keep exactly 70 years ago - is published today as a daily blog. iPM is using it as an excuse to nose into your Saturday.

You should give us your diary entry for today by clicking on Comments at the bottom of this post...or post on your own blog (or YouTube, Twitter, etc) and add the link. Tagging it 'ipmdiary' is a good idea.

We've had an actor in to voice some of Orwell's words.

And if you need more inspiration, Allan Massie wrote about Orwell in yesterday's Daily Telegraph - he says George Orwell would have blogged.

MONDAY 1100 UPDATE:

By the way we are aware that some listeners have spent a LONG time trying to post diary entries, and getting error messages that don't seem valid. This is a problem we've moaned about for some time...simple things like "&" can render a whole script invalid. We are moaning again. In the meantime please accept iPM's apologies for the faff. We are sorry and will try to improve things soon.
