Hats to travel through time

Answering the call: Phil travels in time with branded hat.

Most P40B fans are content with seeing their favourite titfers hop happily around the world by fairly conventional means. But BBC sports journalist Phil (who blogs at http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/euro2008/phil-gordos/) believes that the stylish headgear should also travel in space and time. That's why he's made an arrangement with a 900-year-old Doctor to borrow a contraption known as a TARDIS, which theoretically allows him to promote 2008's most important birthday celebration at, say, The Battle of Waterloo or the signing of the Magna Carta. As any student of time travel will tell you, however, there's great potential for paradox or disruption of the space-time continuum. If a P40B titfer suddenly appears in a Constable landscape, we'll know that something's gone badly wrong. And under no circumstances must Phil go back and shoot his grandfather before his dad is born.

While travelling in the TARDIS, it may be worth visiting my birthdays in parallel universes, such as 1888, 1945 or 1972.
