I just did an interview with Winifred Robinson for the BBC Radio 4 program You and Yours about electric vehicles. They have already run a trail for tomorrows episode apparently stating 'electric cars, they're just not ready yet are they' or something along those lines. I've had to rely on Twitter for the quote so it may be mildly inaccurate.
After my rather strange experience last week I wanted to be ready. I was interviewed by a charming reporter called Andrew Bomford for a report on the BBC's flagship news show 'PM.' I was included in the program, albeit very briefly.
However Mr Bomford also wrote a piece for the BBC news website about the topic, he informed me he had included quotes from me in the piece, then sent another e-mail shortly after saying all the quotes had been removed.
I had been expunged, I was a non being.
Who knows the reason, maybe it was just a trim of the piece because it was too long and my stuff was boring.... maybe not.
So now I've done another interview for You and Yours and I wanted to remember to record it myself, as Tony Benn always did when he was interviewed. Of course, in the panic of setting up a Skype call, I forgot. Doh!
Anyway, the show goes out tomorrow morning on Radio 4 at 12 midday.
