Sun damage

Yesterday was the hottest day of the year so far, inevitably leading to pale, studio-bound crew sitting in the sun and burning themselves. The worst casualty of Sunshine-gate was Freya, our Arts Sponsorship Assistant, who was in the sunshine for the whole day and ended up with very badly burnt arms. While we all tried to be sympathetic, concern over lack of tickets for the best party of last night, the Big Chill DJ bash, took over.

After damage control with Freya's arms was finished, we witnessed Annalisa's unlimited powers. With every taxi company in the tri-state area fully booked, she secured a 16-seater minibus for us at 10pm on a Sunday night in Hay. She is the undisputed Queen of Hay and surely will soon walk on water.

Today is the last day with three shows to record and the crew is looking forward to a slightly less frantic Hay experience from tomorrow onwards. Many of us are also looking forward to a good night's sleep - how rock 'n' roll of us!

Today's highlight will certainly be Stephen Fry who will chat to Mariella in Hay-on-Sky. The question is, will he Twitter about Sky Arts?
