But he does uncover – without really exploring, it has to be said – the debate lying beneath Kevin Spacey’s much-praised Edinburgh lecture in favour of TV executives letting the creatives off the leash and embracing online.

One of four Jamon Jamon venues in London - the others are in Camden Town, Belsize Park and Islington - this tapas bar offers a range of traditional Spanish dishes alongside an all-Spanish wine list and a selection of cocktails including, of course, sangria. There are six Spanish beers, too. The food menu ranges from cheese and charcuterie boards to grilled sardines with olive oil and parsley, serrano ham croquettes, grilled Iberico pork loin with tomato bread, and a variety of paellas - including one cooked with black squid ink. Desserts are authentic too, with tarta de Santiagos alongside traditional Spanish crepes served with strawberries or lemon and sugar. Keep an eye our for special events and menus, too.
Venue says: “Special offers! Monday to Friday 30% off all food (noon-5pm). Monday to Friday 2-for-1 on sangría (5-9 pm).”
