25 years of Question Time

A gathering of the great and good (and the not so great and not so good) to celebrate 25 years of what has become something of an institution. It was fun seeing some of the old clips and there was an award for "the best question" which went to a delightful old lady in a green hat. She had a slightly germanic accent and was haranguing a Tory Minister for having too many jobs. Sadly, she has passed away so her daughter came to collect the prize. She was short and sweet - said that her mother would have been in seventh heaven if she could have been there because there was (from memory) lively argument, handsome men and lots of alcohol!
