Panorama and Me
On Monday the 4th July at 8:30pm, Panorama will be running a program hosted by Tom Heap called Why I Hate Junk Mail? Why am I blogging about it, well I will be on that program. The program is about the amount of junk mail we receive though the letterbox and the cost of disposing it, which is met by the tax payer.
It all started about two months ago when I was contacted by Panorama
asking if I would like to take part in their show. At first I thought it was a wind up as what would Panorama want me with. They explained that they had been reading my blog and liked the articles I wrote on waste, recycling and the costs.
I agreed (still numb from the shock) to take part. A few weeks later a team of four, including Tom Heap turned up in Porthleven to start filming. I thought they would ask for my thoughts and that would be it and all over in a blink of the eye. Little did I know, but they stayed with me for half a day filming me and Tom. Now I don’t know how much will end up on the cutting room floor, but the producer did say I get a good airing.
Firstly, it was a great honour to take part, as I have grown up watching Panorama and have always liked it. Secondly, I was really proud that my blog which started out rather tongue in cheek now gets read by many people not just locally, but nationally.
I have only just been allowed to talk about it, because I agreed to keep it embargoed till nearer the time.
