A visit to the Manchester United and BBC comb factory (Belle)

I was guest of honour on a tour of the comb factory. Away from the production lines the offices doubled as BBC newsrooms while the glass windows looked out over the Old Trafford pitch.

They showed me a video of old TV adverts for their product. First, Ken Dodd playing a nit-comb like a musical instrument. Then they explained their decision to audition Angela Rippon by making her repeat a tongue-twister.

Later I worked for the BBC alongside Noël Coward.
