I don't think they produced any podcasts of the day but I would recommend having a look at Bobby's performances on Youtube. Pull Yourself Together is a personal favourite. My 11 year old daughter watched it with me and said: "Could I do that job?" On reflection she said: "but, it would be difficult not knowing how people are going to respond." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnU6pBiuGMM

Great review Colin. Would love to have attended this event. Do you know if there are any podcasts from the day?
