While reading her final news bulletin of the morning, Hilary Barry makes a brief joke to herself.
It makes her laugh. And laugh. And laugh. And laugh.
Into the next story she goes. Snigger. The laughter won't leave her mind.
It continues right through to the story on the death of Davy Jones, when Hilary realises some solemnity is required.
An excellent psychological study on how laughter can invade the brain and take control.
