After one lengthy, in-person interview, dozens of phone calls and countless emails – to’ing and fro’ing – finally the BBC World Service programme featuring my work promoting Polis in Harrogate went live this morning.
I still haven’t plucked up the courage to listen to it!
As I said to the wonderful, fact-checking journalist today when she called, her finicky and details-demanding approach restored some of my faith in journalism. Always professional and friendly, the BBC journalist ensured that the full facts were known. No stone left unturned. No nasty surprises for the BBC post-release.
I’m indebted to the BBC for helping to spread this good news story of tech playing a positive role in our democracy. Taiwan and Harrogate in the same show – I bet nobody saw that one coming
