The other day I headed over to the Radio New Zealand building where I met with Simon Morton, host of the Saturday technology programme This Way Up. Simon had asked me to talk with him about How to search the internet (8Mb, MP3 file) for today’s broadcast. [Note: the file will only be available online until mid-May 2007.]
How to… search the internet
With a profusion of data online, how to ensure you get relevant, up-to-date and accurate information. (duration: 17′13″).
My spot was broadcast today and is available for the moment at the link above.
Simon and I prepped by chatting about the topics we’d cover, and once he’d installed an empty compact flash card into his recorder we were underway. I’m astonished that in fact he edited out almost nothing from our conversation.
A couple of times there was extraneous noise — a cellphone buzz — so we repeated a couple of sentences, but beyond that I’m not sure he trimmed out anything.
This isn’t the first time I’ve spoken on National Radio, but it’s definitely the longest spot, and was jolly good fun. I’m amazed at how English I still sound (after 45 years in this country), and how much I sound like my sister.
