“My most memorable ‘interview’ was with Margaret Thatcher as she showed me round 10 Downing Street, and described the pains and pleasures of living there. She apologised about the bikes left lying around in the rear lobby! I had only been allowed in to take pictures for Denis Thatcher’s 60th birthday by pretending to be a photographer.”
