There's been a last-minute scheduling change - my new series, 'Britain's Lost Masterpieces', will now start on Wednesday 28th September on BBC4. This is welcome news, as it gives us a little more time to finish the series, which is still being made.

Today my co-presenter, Jacky Klein, and I recorded the voiceover for programme 1. It takes about an hour or so, and you sit in a little booth (above) with a microphone and two screens. You watch the relevant clip, then when a little red light comes on, you read from the script. The trick is not to be too distracted by the shocking sight of seeing your mug on the telly, and somehow get the words out.
