The Oldie - - CONTENTS -

Sophia Money-coutts (p28) spent five years study­ing the aris­toc­racy at Tatler. She writes the Mod­ern Manners col­umn in the Sun­day Tele­graph. She and her mother are thrilled about her Oldie de­but.

Paul Barnes (p24) used to make films, in­clud­ing a 1968 film on the last days of the steam age. He later be­came a writer and pre­sen­ter for the BBC, Granada, ATV and Anglia.

Mathew Nor­man (p36) drifted into jour­nal­ism af­ter fail­ing the Law Society’s solic­i­tors’ fi­nal ex­am­i­na­tion by the widest mar­gin in his­tory. He’s the chief film critic of the Even­ing Stan­dard and a po­lit­i­cal colum­nist for the Independent. He’s of­ten writ­ten about the hypochon­dria he’s suf­fered from since he con­vinced him­self (though no one with a for­mal med­i­cal qual­i­fi­ca­tion), aged twenty, he was in the fi­nal stages of con­gen­i­tal heart fail­ure.
