    Well, not quite.

    But I was on the BBC this morning, on the BBC Surrey Breakfast Show. The podcast is here: 22/11/2016, Breakfast on BBC Surrey - BBC Surrey (I don't know if it will work outside the UK). To save you listening to all three hours(!) fast-forward to 2:40 and take it from there for about 9 minutes. I was invited in to talk about my book, but it turned into a more general chat about travel photography. Good fun though, and I'm a broadcaster now ;)

    Bill, this may be silly but your voice does sound like my mental image of a personage from sunny Frimely. :biggrin:

    I thought he sounded a bit like Michael Caine at the beginning, but then that impression began to fade. I love all the different British accents. I imagine if one knows the isle well that one can tell where someone lives just from the sound of their voice.

    You could do this regularly, and do it well. Great radio voice, easy to understand, not rushing. Well done, Bill.

    Just to divert a moment, my favourite David Attenborough clip is of a bird of paradise mimicking an slr camera and motor drive. :biggrin:

    Listening to this makes me think off the Photo lounge podcasts, I’ve downloaded them and I love listening to it whenever I go long driving.

    Those podcasts were good stuff. We need a Transatlantic version
