  1. Thanks for linking my blog post. I’m sure that there was something in yesterday morning’s Telegraph online premium section (which I don’t subscribe to) about the 25th anniversary. I can’t find any reference to it now. A quick google shows that the Yorkshire Post had an article about it yesterday.
