The new Labour peer Baroness Bakewell is the second former member of the Newsnight staff to make the House of Lords.
The first was the Liberal Democrat, Jane Bonham-Carter, who was one of my first producers on the programme in the early 90s.
Joan Bakewell was the Newsnight arts correspondent in the 1980s.
But is the new Baroness Bakewell also the first Miliband peer? Until a few years ago both David and Ed Miliband lived in separate flats in the house next to Bakewell's, in Chalcot Square in Primrose.
And, their mother Marion, who now occupies David's old flat, is now a next-door neighbour of Bakewell's instead.
