Leicester Square at Christmas. I adore the lights and the buzz about London in the run-up to Christmas, but I can't hang around for long. Home beckons.

I spent a few days in Bulgaria last weekend, attending the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.

After a fairly full-on weekend, I grabbed a couple of hours to have a wander around the vicinity. I didn't go far. There wasn't enough time.

Whilst these pictures will never be considered picture postcard, they do reflect the things that catch my eye: architecture, graffiti, degradation and the beauty in the everyday.

Sofia struck me as a sad city. Faded glory underpinned with a fierce sense of pride. Now what it needs is some cash.

Andrew Neil's introduction on this week's This Week is much-needed pick me up.

Expect a long list of scientific and cultural high achievers, and an unequivocal message of defiance to round the whole thing off.

Great scriptwriting and a suitably terrifying delivery.
