Like so many, I've been worried about Yentob. At 73, he's not been allowed in BBC buildings since before lockdown. Has he isolated in Notting Hill or Somerset ? How has he evaded the camera for so long ?

This weekend, he makes an appearance on BBC2, introducing a film called Citizens of Boomtown, spookily the exact title of the Boomtown Rats first album in 23 years. It was made by Dublin-based indie Sideline for RTE, who showed it in a digestible two parts back in March. BBC2 viewers clearly need Al to explain the cultural significance of the Rats, and get the whole lot in one 90 minute go...

Next week, Bob Geldof explains the cultural significance of Alan Yentob.
