Speaking of Stella, it was interesting to see new footage of the 1999 Stirling Prize judging, when Future Systems' friendly alien at Lord's controversially beat Benson + Forsyth's Museum of Scotland.

Shown at Wednesday's Stirling Effect party at the V&A, the film revealed that McCartney, the year's celebrity judge, had been the Media Centre's biggest advocate. Most interesting, however, was the way Marco Goldschmied seemed to go all gooey-eyed in her presence and fell for her argument in favour of the Lord's building.
