Live from the BBC

Right, first off, I spent all day hunkered in my edit fox hole cutting the previous days filming (check it out at the expedition website) so it’s up to Tony to let you all know how it went at the BBC. This would be fine if it weren’t for the fact that he’s chowing down with the group over lunch whilst I’m sitting in the van outside a Mosque. Oh well, here’s how it went from what I heard from the kids.

First up a visit to Live East Magazine – a great enterprise right here in Whitechappel. By all accounts, a very inspirational morning working with youth journalists and designers.

Then on to the media equivalent of a bright red phone box – the BBC. The team still haven’t stopped raving about it so I’m guessing they enjoyed themselves. They interviewed the editor in charge of middle east content who gave a refreshingly honest account of the way media is portrayed in this country. I think this is what got the guys excited the most – finally someone who was prepared to put his neck on the line and give an honest answer. Good on him.

And to wrap it up on the most British of days – fish and chips! It’s a good job I’ve got a big cycling holiday after this cos I’m coming back a notch or two looser on the old belt…

Right now we’re in Leeds, finally out of London and en-route to the countryside : )
