Looking for volunteers

NO MORE PLEASE! I’m feeling slightly overwhelmed by the number of you who’ve got in touch. It’s really appreciated and we definitely have enough now! Thanks.

Original post: Mark and I are running a World Service News presentation course on Thursday and we’re looking for people who’d be happy to be interviewed. It won’t be broadcast and should take about 10 minutes on the phone between 1500-1640GMT on Thursday. If you’d like to help out, please drop me a line. It’d really be appreciated.
