I came across Mark Steel when we moved to the UK the first time in 2003. He was on the radio with a series called The Mark Steel Lectures where he argued for the importance of particular historical figures, fascinating AND funny. I loved it.
I would have posted a video of one of the lectures from the t.v. version off You Tube but it won’t let me embed for some reason, so you will have to check them out for yourself.
Today we tuned in to listen to Chain Reaction on BBC Radio Four and were pleased to discover that Mark Steel was being interviewed by the equally brilliant Kevin Eldon – if you are in need of a laugh you can find it here for the next 6 days.
Oh and a photo of me wearing my latest creation 🙂
