I propose beginning a list of national treasures?
Basic rules -
They have to be living (non-humanoid can be accepted)
Anyone can challenge a choice and ask them to justify it.

Let's begin -
Stephen Fry (the all knowing one)
Mark Kermode (the critical one)
Paul Merton ( the witty one)

On a plateau, above the rest, Le Grand Attenborough. He's the single greatest educator on British television and has inspired more scientists and naturalists than you can shake several long sticks at.

The only way is forward. Now where's the bar?

Hugh Laurie
John Cleese
Adrian Edmonson
Rik Mayall
Pink Floyd
Ozzy Ozzbourne
Peter Molyneux
Winston Churchill (dead or not, he's a British beacon of hope, cleverness, leadership and overall greatness)

And I can't think of any more people right now

I'm pretentious, I'm a git; I'm way to young for all this youknowwhat.

Churchill: many things, some of them less than pleasant, but ultimately the greatest British political figure of the 20th century and the true saviour of this nation. When I hear people in this country criticise him, I ask them to consider where their free speech and physical liberty would be without him. I'm not blind to his faults, but immensely glad he brought his virtues to the fore 1939-45.

Not enough Wood on the box, is she Doing Other Things or will there be some meisterwerk soon? And what's the female equivalent of meisterwerk anyway?

I wish she'd write more drama for television. Her and Alan Bennett.

As for David Attenborough, I fully agreed with his national treasure status. I have all the podcasts from his Life Stories series on Radio 4.

Ahh, another one approached in in the next few minutes.
