It was on Sky TV last night - terrestial viewers will have to wait until 2 November, apparently. Also, the video footage of Matilda getting mangled and the ref bot getting squashed were edited out. Pity. But Typhoon behaved well, spinning immaculately. I was delighted to see that of the two air cadet operators, one was a girl (half that corps are female, so it's fair enough). Craig Charles was wearing an over the top western type jacket with fringes so long that I don't know what, and tried a bit of heavy gallantry with the girl - and, again to my delight, she was perfectly civil to him, but conveyed (at least to me, a rather biased spectator) that she thought he was way over the hill and should be tottering towards retirement as soon as possible.
