1628...don't know if this will work. When I thought about it earlier I knew it might be tricky if the programme was especially busy and "live". It is. Lots still up in the air. Am in S1, listing to Radio 4, preparing for the trail. After that there is a pre-rec with a grown-up son who still lives with his parents. Three blog posts ready to go. Opening heads a bit up in the air, and we're having trouble with our Nazi discussion. Upping our blockade coverage. Just recorded an int with a man who took almost 24 hours to get over the Channel.
