Yes, I had gone to bed and was fast asleep. Don't have a telly anyway. What was the lad's name?

It was Brian Cox. Couldn't think of his name last night. He was giving one of his lectures. There were some celebs in the audience.

j07 Can a man of nearly 40 be called "a lad" and would he thank you for it? You have a most idiosyncratic and rather interesting approach to age.

Brian Cox is being touted as the natural 'successor' to David Attenborough, though there is such a multiplicity of good science and nature presenters, that I see no need for a successor. I don't find Cox particularly inspiring on topics not related to his own sphere of physics. My favourite nature presenter is Kate Humble - enthusiastic, knowledgeable and a very good communicator.

How near 40? Told a young lad celebrating his 34th birthday on Saturday that he didn't look a day over 30. He seemed very pleased. And Brian Cox does look teenagery-"that one small head should carry all he knew"(probable misquote)

Actually, I think he's over 40 already, but I agree that he looks quite boyish.
