The photo of your desk surrounded by TV stuff reminded me of something. No doubt you've seen that clip with Harold Macmillan about to do a broadcast. The camera pans over all the filming gear and he says
"So there you are – you can see what it is like. The camera's hot, probing eye, these monstrous machines and their attendants – a kind of twentieth century torture chamber, that's what it is. But I must try to forget about that, and imagine that you are sitting here in the room with me."
