Those readers who were not lucky enough to enjoy the Stirling ceremony in the flesh will no doubt have watched Channel 4's live show with Kevin McCloud. If any of you armchair viewers were wondering why it disappeared off air for 30 seconds, we might have the answer. And, no, it wasn't some Robert Adaminspired Classicist guerrilla plot - Astragal can vouch for Robert's whereabouts throughout the ceremony. The answer is that some pranksters decided to sabotage the night for no reason other than japery.

Apparently one of these oiks distracted the guard watching over the outside broadcast van with the classic words: 'Look over there!' Meanwhile, the second scrote took the opportunity to jump in and randomly pull out cables.

Live television, eh? Better shelve those plans for the Astragal feed straight from MIPIM.
