Fame at last!!
My name in Radio Times! Wow!
This programme was recorded last October when the BBC Natural History Unit producer Andrew Dawes came over to record an item on Islay's geese, particularly the White-fronted, for the series 'Saving Species'. He interviewed James How (RSPB), Craig Archibald (Craigens Farm), Morven Laurie (SNH) and myself. The programme was broadcast in early November and is still available on BBC iPlayer at:
On the same day, Michael Scott, the presenter, a friend who lives in the north of Scotland, and myself recorded this episode for the series "Living World".
The good news is that the programme will be broadcast on Radio 4 this Sunday, 1st May. The bad news is that although the time is given as 6.35, that's 6.35 am! However, it will be on BBC iPlayer for a period thereafter for those who can't wake up in time. We started at RSPB Gruinart overlooking the flats, and then moved up to Ardnave and looked at the birds both on the loch and in the dunes, where some Choughs were very obliging.
I may post a reminder on Saturday! Or I might even phone a few friends at 6.30 am Sunday, though that might make them ex-friends :-))
