Radio, TV and Print Media Interviews
Someone recently asked me how many times I’d been interviewed by the BBC and other radio & TV stations, and I had to confess to not having counted. I do know my first radio interview was in the mid-80s and that I was interviewed whilst stood in a call box in Berlin in November 1989 just hours after the Berlin Wall came down (it wasn’t my fault, honestly). The total number of interviews since the 80s must run into hundreds on local and national stations, plus the BBC World Services.
I’ve also been interviewed on stations based in the USA, Canada and Europe plus I’ve been on TV in at least 22 countries.
Here’s a list of some of the more memorable interviews …
