Mine – no question about that. No two days are ever the same. The other day I was down in South Africa because Mandela was thought to be dying, and a week later I was sitting in a restaurant ordering a pizza and my phone goes – Mrs Thatcher was dead.
What can’t you miss?
This is terrible, but I don’t really watch television at home. I do watch Newsnight and news channels all day. So by the time I get home I’m exhausted.
What will TV be like in 30 years’ time?
We could have a chip in our heads, so we just have to think, “I want to watch BBC1.”
What do you hope will stand the test of time?
I’m bound to say Channel 4 News. Despite advances in technology, our figures have not gone down. If anything they’ve gone up. When I started, it wasn’t possible to communicate with anyone in TV unless you wrote them a letter. Now I have an active relationship with 300,000 followers on Twitter and I occasionally tweet while I’m on air – it’s come of age. It’s a fantastic moment to be in television. The best.
What should win the RT Audience Award?
Despite being addicted to Homeland, I’m afraid the Olympics Opening Ceremony by a million miles. It was one of the most sensational things I’ve ever seen, in any form, on any visual medium.
