I love it because you can see things like this: Rose Tremain's acceptance speech for the Orange Prize. Now we don't have to just watch acceptance speeches for TV, film and music. When I found out she had won the prize, I went to YouTube, not really expecting it to be there but there it was. Hooray! (ps she thanks her agent, who is also my agent, the wonderful Vivien Green)
Also, there was this TV item about the awards night, which gives a surreal amount of airtime to Gerri Halliwell (Spice Girl) who is apparently an author and literary critic.
