Thanks to the wonders of modern technology (YouTube) and thanks also to Central News I can now share my TV appearances with you. Don't laugh. Central sent a car to pick up me and my children and as many canvases as I could carry, and take us to the Central News studio in Abingdon. Wow. Everyone was really lovely and James and Maddy were (for once) speechless in amazement at all the equipment and paraphanalia. What fun!! Alex who interviewed me was especially friendly and so professional!! How they manage it??- all that split second timing with looking at camera 3 with 10 seconds to go - is quite beyond me.
Later on the same day, a reporter (Ally) and cameraman arrived at my studio to carry on the story....including the story behind the story with my grandfather. Right up until the last minute, Maddy had insisted on wearing a viking helmet which is cleverly out of shot.
I wanted to share them with you...even if they do make me cringe in self-concious embarrassment.But a big thank you to everyone at Central for making myself and my kids so welcome and being such decent folk.
