    Moira is someone who doesn't really celebrate Christmas, and so she would have agreed to come in to work on Christmas Day and Boxing Day to read the news bulletins.

    That was in 2002 - a year that I was specially interested in watching the Queen's message, as I wanted to see what she had to say, considering it was the same year that she had lost both her mother and sister, and of course it was her Golden Jubilee celebrations as well. She said that it was as full as year as she can remember.
