BBC 4 Interview today - broadcast Monday 24th May 2010

Hi all,



Today I was interviewed in Santiago by Katie Derham from the BBC travel program "Traveller's Tree". She and a producer are spending the whole day today interviewing pilgrims and anything related to the camino and the pilgrimage. They have a packed program that goes from early morning to late night tonight. The end result will be a program that will be broadcast some time in the near future on BBC 4 radio.

They were very curious about the community that we have built up here on this website, so I did talk a bit about what we are doing here... and then of course the they did find some pilgrims to talk to as well. Looking forward to listening to it once it is done.

Greetings fro Santiago,
Ivar

Re: BBC 4 Interview today

This forum is going from strength to strength, thanks mainly to the dedicated support from persons such as you and the wise, kind, and non-judgmental replies to questions from those in need of information from Sil, kiwinomad, rebekah, and others too many to mention.

It would be nice to see the interview on youtube or similar streaming facilities when the interview is finally broadcast for those overseas like us who are not able to access the BBC4 broadcast. Perhaps you could get the DVD of the programme? TVONE in NZ sent us their DVD as we were participants in their programme so it is likely BBC4 could do the same.

Re: BBC 4 Interview today

Thank you for your kind words. This interview was for Radio, BBC4, they told me that they would send me the mp3 file of the interview, but I am not sure if they would let me publish it. If they do I will put it up.

Greetings from a rainy Santiago,
Ivar

BBC radio programmes are generally available on their iplayer for a week after transmission - should be available worldwide. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio/bbc_radio_four

Thank you Peter, I tried the website and am able to hear broadcast from the BBC stations. I will keep an eye open for the interview.
This is one of the strength of this forum, there is always someone savvy to point us in the right direction.

Re: BBC 4 Interview today

Re BBC radio 4 interview.

I am just reinforcing what others are saying re access to the BBC website. We are in Brisbane and I regularly go on line to listen to BBC radio 4 programs. I have found I can access lots of the interviews, which are available for months in some cases.
The other avenue is digital radio of course.
We will be on the VDLP at the time of this broadcast so hope an internet connection be available for that week wherever we are!.Cathy A.

Re: BBC 4 Interview today - broadcast Monday 24th May

Well done, Ivar! You provided a great insight into the Camino and into our community. I also enjoyed the whole program with the comparisons and information about other traditional pilgrimages.

Best,

Re: BBC 4 Interview today - broadcast Monday 24th May

I just listened to it... the really cut it down (I guess this is what happens)....and they confused this forum with the work I do at Xacobeo..but ohh well, I guess it is easy to get confused with all the pilgrim related things I am working on these days :)

Been on BBC radio, check!

Saludos,
Ivar

Re: BBC 4 Interview today - broadcast Monday 24th May

Thank you Ivar for your input in the BBC4 program. We enjoyed the excellent, both in clarity and spontaneous sound and words of joy from pilgrims, archived version of the broadcast as the live version was broadcast in the early winter hours of our New Zealand time. We are proud that you were selected for the interview and they managed to capture the essence of pilgrimage which was tastefully presented with your help.

Fully recommended listening for those who have done the Camino as well as those intending to do a pilgrimage. this broadcast will be available for some time in the BBC4 archives.

A very good little programme and giving the Camino and your work some welcome publicity. Well done! Looking forward to getting back on the 'Way' with friends in mid June, from Burgos.

Re: BBC 4 Interview today - broadcast Monday 24th May

Nice summary of camino and Santiago. Lovely to listen to and especially interesting to hear your voice Ivar, after seeing your image so many times. Sounded all very professional. Great stuff. CaroleH

Am listening this very instant as I write. Love it.
