Inside Out, North East

Talking to Linda Barker, I appear for about, ooo, 10 seconds, and then again a bit later in the programme! A lot of the information from my PhD also makes its way into the words coming from Linda Barker’s mouth… and there’s a few ways that things have been interpreted that I might take issue with, but that’s the way TV programmes get made! The t-shirt is from Barter Books.

BBC: Inside Out: Tonight

I will probably be one of the last to see it, as I will have to wait for iPlayer, but you can watch on Sky if you have it! Filming was undertaken at the Imperial War Museum about a month ago… it was quite a rush to get there in time, but a novel and enjoyable experience being interviewed by Linda Barker (Changing Rooms fame)

Once Linda had finished interviewing Richard Slocombe (who I must contact!), Curator at the Imperial War Museum, we disappeared into the new “Ministry of Food” exhibition, which would open two days later. We found a set of posters which the Museum had indicated would not cause copyright issues, and took around an hour to pull some footage together. The entire segment is expected to be 9 minutes, so I look forward to my 30 seconds of fame… no I don’t know which bits they’ve used either!

8th March: BBC Inside Out

The other week I was filmed for ‘Inside Out North East’, and this will be shown (in the North East) on Monday evening, but will then be available on iPlayer afterwards.  I have had a few questions as to why I am on in the North East when I am based in the South. The 21st century poster story starts in a bookshop in Alnwick… Barter Books

Inside Out: The BBC

Today I’ve been talking to the team from ‘Inside Out, North East‘ re: a programme they are making about the Keep Calm and Carry On phenomenon. Every time someone contacts me about the story, I find it fascinating that it continues to roll on (even as we’re officially exiting the recession, I believe!), and I’m looking forward to a trip to the Imperial War Museum for some filming.
