Tuesday 29th September
There was an air of hope and expectation over the conference on the day that Gordon Brown would make the big speech.
I would be a make or break one.
My job for the day was an easy and quick one.
The programme required reaction to the speech from conference delegates.
I waited outside the conference hall with lots of delegates and others that had been unable to go in to hear the man in person.
We watched on screens as Sarah Brown introduced her husband and he did his stuff.
Watching from just outside the hall.
It appeared to be a reasonable performance to me.
During the obligatory standing ovation Gloria and Caroline the producer met me and we got ready to ask the audience.
Well surprise surprise everyone we spoke to said they thought that it was really good and he had done what was needed to ally the troops for the election fight ahead.
All I now needed to do was feed the tape back to GMTV in London.
Once the material got there the decision was made not to run the interviews because the Sun no longer supporting the Labour party was now the big story.
