Something to Declare
Saturday 09 June 2012
Larry David never really topped his first two Curb series, where his mystified mischief maker was at his most excruciating – the "beloved aunt" episode being a standout.

I haven't been able to find out whether the festival of road works and street closures in central London is part of preparations for the Diamond Jubilee or the Olympic Games, but anyone travelling (or, as the case may be, not travelling) around the capital will be in no doubt that something big is about to happen. The streets, tubes and buses are full of tourists unfamiliar with Oyster cards or the difference between The Mall and Pall Mall – I spent a little time yesterday explaining this to a Japanese couple, whom I left happy but, sadly, still bemused – and those shops selling such essential items as union jack teddy bears and miniature Harrods vans are doing a brisk trade. Get ready, too, for the forthcoming Diamond Jubilee media-fest.

The first day of filming looms and I am getting ready to rumble. One of the main secrets of hidden camera is to be, well, hidden. I don't mean snuck behind a bush waiting for people. I mean wearing the right costume so that you can just blend into the background. Disguises can often be too comedy and easily spotted. As an example, I have to wear pyjamas and slippers in one scene. The natural instinct is to go all Wallace & Gromit with Victorian-style pyjamas and check slippers. I opted for plain black slippers and blue pyjamas.

If this is to be Robin Gibb's final contribution to music, it's a fittingly noble undertaking; and, as a collaboration with his son, an apt passing-on of the baton.
