On Tuesday lunchtime our staff choir was filmed by the BBC to appear as a news item for local station BBC Radio Solent today, which they've also decided to show on the local television news. I heard that our performance would be on at 7:35am so I turned the radio on at 7am, only to hear my own voicesmiley - yikes This was broadcast at 7am as part of the News in the Julian Clegg show – I'm on at 33:40, with the main bit broadcast at 1:06:30:
'A choir has existed for over 5 years' was apparently the 3rd biggest local news story following Saints' smiley - football defeat and 'Warsash Woman gets stuck up tree', on a slow news day where nothing much has happened except for Theresa May scraping through another vote of no confidence with under 20 votes to spare…
Apparently while I was listening to the radio, at 7am the BBC's South Today programme also broadcast us on the telly as a 'coming up on tonight's show' bit.
