For those who missed it, we'd like to point out The Observer editor's surname is Roger Alton, not Altman. Huge apologies.
But it turns out our error contained a grain of intuition. While we were getting mixed up, a spokeswoman for Observer-owner Guardian Media Group, Julie Taylor, tells us a camera crew was shooting a scene for a new film at its Farringdon offices.
Could the director be Robert Altman of Gosford Park and MASH fame? Sadly not, but it was someone with a famous 'A' name. One Woody Allen.
Expect the yet-untitled film, starring Charles Dance as a newspaper editor, to hit the screens next year. Let's hope the script is typo-free.
