As we’re all now in our 70s, the tours have got shorter,’ says the 71-year-old. ‘They’ve all worked out to be 14 shows recently. 

But when we get to the last one we are all going: ‘We’re just getting warmed up.’ Everybody finishes on a kind of a downer — ‘We want more gigs!’ Which is a good way to leave it really.’ As long as ti-i-i-ime is on your side.

At the BBC’s Christmas party, Director of Content Charlotte Moore revealed that the high point of her year was ‘when millions of people were glued to the TV for our coverage of a critically important national decision. 

‘A terrifying cliff edge . . . A major dilemma — should filmmakers intervene to rescue a pile of adorable baby penguins stuck at the bottom of a freezing gully on Dynasties?’
