Nowadays we are used to coverage using scores of cameras on the ground and in the air, but back then an outside broadcast was a little more modest.

And when it was all over the tension was dispelled by Roberto, who, in an interview with a youthful Harry Carpenter, revealed a charming, self-deprecating and generous nature.
