Crick as WildeA few weeks ago Newsnight approached the film director Ken Loach for an interview for one of my films about the split inside George Galloway's Respect party - Loach himself is a keen Galloway supporter.

But Loach was reluctant to be interviewed by me, described me to my producer as "The Oscar Wilde of Television Centre" - quite complimentary in some ways, though friends find it hard to see what Loach was getting at.

In response, my daughter Catherine couldn't resist drawing this cartoon...

A budding cartoonist, perhaps your daughter could be commissioned to draw the Newsnight team for the website?

I went to art school instead of studying Economics, best decision I ever made -creativity wins every time over eating dry toast

I don't work for Newsnight and have no intention of ever doing so.
Just as well I'm going into art instead of journalism really, seeing as I can't even draw a picture for my dad's Christmas present without the BBC being accused of nepotism!

I think the picture is great, and art is certainly the future,

by the way I thought I picked up a book by an author called Crick but I'm not sure it was by the Newsnight Political Editor,

his Dad maybe?
