How wonderful it was that Vanessa Redgrave received the BAFTA Fellowship, honouring as it did her 52 years of film-making. The compilation of clips was well chosen - and included the two moments from MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS that I would have chosen!

Of course you never let Vanessa speak at an award ceremony and sure enough, she wandered off in her speech all over the shop. The sight of her giving Prince William a deep curtsy - then needing his assistance to get up! - was a sight I can honestly say I never expected to see.

But then the one thing you can expect from Vanessa is the unexpected.
