One of the news stories is the emergence of Neil Hamilton as a dodgy politician, prior to his metamorphosis into a third-rate TV personality.

Look at those petrol prices.

After this episode, there’s a trailer where they basically throw out an entire published schedule to accomodate Opera from the Royal Opera House. Not sure it’s quite as respectful and pompous as Opera trailers normally are, but I guess that’s all to the good.

I must have been amused by this trailer, as I kept the whole of it, before recording switches to the next episode of Have I Got News For You. Guests on this episode are Jack Docherty

This is the last episode on the tape. Just after, recording stops, and underneath there’s a 30 minute still caption from Sky One. Gripping stuff.

Friday on Sky

And that’s it for this tape.
