Football tragics have now had five days of post-5pm football saturation. And, while Andriy Shevchenko's rebirth and Spain's lack of a striker are to the fore, those with an eye for interior design have been focused on one other thing – namely ITV's studio set, currently floating David Blaine-like above Castle Square in central Warsaw.

Anthony Rose: 'When it comes to matters of taste it’s a false economy not to take the upshift challenge'
Saturday 18 December 2010
I was watching the downshift challenge on Daybreak TV recently (don't ask). Drop one brand level lower and you can save 40 per cent, claimed Martin Lewis, because people are fooled at Christmas into thinking they must have the best. He tried out two Christmas trees on children, one cheerful, the other deeply depressing. The suggestion that the depressing cheaper one was better because it was cheaper lacked conviction. He then road-tested a Christmas pudding and mince pie on a blindfolded Adrian Chiles who guessed both the more expensive ones correctly. Which suggests that while it may be worth saving on basic brands, when it comes to matters of taste, wine in particular, it's a false economy not to take the upshift challenge and enhance the enjoyment.

And the prospects don't look good for the next generation either: 25 per cent of 11- and 12-year-olds in the city are obese too.

Not since my schooldays, when a boy in my year called Ian Hunt was cruelly nicknamed Isaac, even by some of the teachers, has the surname of the current Culture Secretary struck me as potentially comical. So three cheers for Jim Naughtie, whose now-celebrated clanger on Monday's Today programme unwittingly kindled the schoolboy humour that brought some warmth to a freezing winter's day.
