OT, but i'm going to be on the radio!

A local radio station is doing a peice about stillbirth and neonatal loss and i have been asked to be interviewed. I filled out a media interviewee form a few years back through SANDS (Stillbirth & Neo Natal Death Support charity) saying that i would be happy to share my story if they needed anyone. They're coming to interview me on Monday. I'm so nervous!!

Here's the blurb:

[FONT=Arial]Tune in to BBC Radio 4’s “File on 4” current affairs programme at 8pm on Tuesday 1 June, where the programme will be looking in depth at how the causes of stillbirths and neonatal deaths are currently investigated in the UK. [/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]“File on 4” will be asking why the UK has some of the highest rates of stillbirths and early neonatal deaths in Europe and why many of these deaths are not being properly investigated. [/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]Several Sands parents have kindly contributed to the programme as have key members of the Sands staff team, as well as many key obstetricians, researchers, perinatal pathologists and specialist law firms. [/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]The programme will contribute further to raising awareness of the issues surrounding baby loss and it is hoped generate further debate and ultimately action on how to reduce the consistently high stillbirth and neonatal death rates in the UK. [/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]The programme is repeated at 5pm on Sunday 6 June if you miss it on Tuesday or catch it online at BBC iPlayer www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006th08[/FONT]

Okay, there's a link here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p0080ylx/Adam_Tomlinson_01_06_2010/. I'm on after about 1:35:00. It takes an age to load though!

I don't know if you will be able to access it - being abroad - but my friend in Turkey listened so maybe... Smile
