Happy 80th birthday to Alan Bennett

To celebrate his 80th birthday, here is a strikingly youthful Alan Bennett performing one of the headmaster's monologues from his first play.

Forty Years On, with its combination of high culture, nostalgia and corny jokes, has always appealed to me.

For a portrait of Bennett today, watch his interview with Mark Lawson.
