It [Time travel] is an intriguing prospect worthy of an H G Wells novel: but, of course, it must be complete rubbish. – Daily Telegraph leader, Aug 9
The Daily Telegraph may dismiss the theory of time travel but the Daily Mirror, when I worked on it, was always prepared to keep an open mind on the subject.
I remember when a reader phoned to say he had invented a time machine that could take anyone back or forward in time.
News editor Dan Ferrari said that was wonderful, and that he would love to see it.
The inventor asked when he should come to the office to discuss his invention and Ferrari told him: ‘Come in and see me - yesterday.’
