My 5 minutes of Fame!

The BBC came to my Nursery today to film us for a feature about how children best learn to read......

The feature will be shown tomorrow morning on BBC 1 (Breakfast show) sometime between 8.30 and 9.15am BST

I tried to stay out of the filming, making my staff do it instead as I hate that kind of thing but the Producer insisted on interviewing me..... hopefully they will realise that they need to get rid of that bit when they edit it!

Thanks for the congrats etc - our kiddies really enjoyed watching the recording of the show at Nursery! We could not hear the commentary because they kept shouting out the names of their playmates (or screaming loudly because they recognised themselves) and the staff members featured.

However, 2.5 hours of filming was converted into 2 minutes on the show and it was a little bit disruptive as one of our parents, who is the Producer of the BBC Breakfast Programme, phoned to ask permission to film just a couple of hours before the film crew arrived!
We then had to phone around for parental permission for the children to be featured before we could go ahead with it.

My, and my staff's, interviews were actually over 10 minutes long each but were converted on the show to 20 seconds max - and the most relevant parts of our interviews were not shown because (we think) the children's author - Quentin Blake - who took part in the discussion afterwards had actually planned to say almost exactly what we had said Laughing out loud

It was an interesting experience - and a lot of people in our small community, even some who we have never spoken to before, have stopped us in the street, the school playground or in the local shops to comment on our 'performance' and to say how pleased they were to see thier local Nursery, and their friends children, on National TV.
