Spanning David’s first meeting with the Proclaimers to them presenting him with a special National Television Award.
Excerpt from the Graham Norton Show “Uncut” (April 2007)
Graham Norton: You were in a fantastic video, the Proclaimers video David Tennant: I was GN: …and of course the Proclaimers are going to be playing for us in a few moments. They’re here. The Proclaimers are in the building. Was it all filmed in one day? DT: No! I got a phone call… Matt Lucas phoned me up and said, “I’m gonna do this thing.” He knew I’m a big Proclaimers fan. He said, “Oh come along. Join in.” I said of course I will! I’ll get to meet the Proclaimers! But they’d been and gone when I turned up! They’d filmed their bit, and I’m just stuck with Johnny Ball and Rod, Jane, and Freddie up the back! And Dusty Bin. Not that there’s anything wrong with them, they’re lovely people (especially Dusty Bin), but I was devastated. So to find that tonight I might actually get to meet the Proclaimers… I’m a little bit over-excited. GN: I hate to break it to you, but we did tape them in the afternoon. They’re not here. DT: <long pause> I wouldn’t have a sense of humor about that. GN: They are here, they are here. Don’t worry.
