The Beatles, Bowie, Elton John, Frank Sinatra, the Queen... the list of luminaries once snapped by self-taught photographer Terry O'Neill is mind-blowing. In conversation with Newsnight's Stephen Smith, the 78-year-old told the stories behind some of his most iconic photographs and gave us a glimpse of what life was like at the apex of popular culture in the 60s and 70s.

2 | A chat with some men who seriously know watches

Esquire's watch columnist Robin Swithinbank joined an esteemed panel of horologists - Danny Pizzigoni, Andrew Hildreth, Philip van Dedem and Alex Stonely - as they shared their thoughts on how audience members could begin to build an impressive collection of their own.

"You should get the right advice and try to hit the ground running. John Mayer told us his first twelve watches were a mistake. Which is fine for a multi-millionaire, not for the rest of us," pointed out Pizzigoni.

Stonely felt that "the modern pre-owned market is the lowest risk investment to start your collection," while on the subject of buying a watch that will retain its value, Hildreth said "if you want safety, go with Patek."

The one thing the whole panel agreed with? Keep up to date with watch sections like Esquire's. Thanks, guys.

The Champagne and chat flowed freely during a passionate and in-depth hour with the Sky Sports team, where Simon Thomas, David Gower, Will Greenwood and Alan Smith selected their favourite sporting moments of the past 25 years.

Highlights included The 2012 European Ryder Cup victory, Liverpool's miraculous Champions League comeback in Istanbul, along with the Ashes and Sergio Agueroooooooooo's last-gasp winner against QPR couple with Martin Tyler's elated reaction, both of which are among the most iconic moments in Premier League history.

Will Greenwood described Aguero's goal as his favourite ever sporting moment. Even more than the legendary 2003 Rugby World Cup victory…
