What did you make of the London 2012 opening ceremony?
After witnessing the debacle that was the handover to Britain during the closing ceremony of Beijing 2008, I think everyone was a little nervous.
But I thought it was superb, with the right balance between references that only Brits would acknowledge, to the sounds and images immediately recognisable to viewers around the world.
And in the latter camp, of course, there was Paul McCartney.
There was disagreement among those I was watching with as to whether he can still sing (I think he’s still got it), but there can be no disagreement as to the man’s enduring popularity around the globe.
And when it comes to collectibles, values for Sir Paul are soaring. His signed photos grew in value by 16.67% between 2010 and 2011, according to the PFC40 Autograph Index.
They are now worth an average £1,750.
