Angus Deayton rounds the day off

Steve Bowbrick Steve Bowbrick 18:25, Friday, 13 March 2009


Rounding off a really exciting day up on the bridge at HMS Radio 4, Angus Deayton's contribution may have been the shortest - at a bit less that two minutes on-air - but I think he sounds most like a real continuity announcer of the five comedians.

It was fascinating to listen to the comics doing their thing in such an exalted location and I'm not at all surprised that the nerves got to one or two of them quite audibly. All five were hilarious and have probably raised a lot of money for Comic Relief.

A full set of pictures - all taken by presentations producer Stan Was - are on Flickr. There's also a Radio 4 pool, for photographs taken by Radio 4 people.

And, to finish, some credit for these blog posts: all of the audio files were put together in double-quick time by operations assistant Tom Rogers. Katherine Campbell and Kyren Burns on the Radio 4 Interactive team solved many technical problems to make it all happen. Thanks to them and to all the other Radio 4 staff who made this such a fun day.
