Window On Your World UPDATE
Exciting news. I am told, by grown ups who know about these things (Gillian) that all the photos will be posted by Sunday. Personally, I think that's ambitious, but I pass the information on to you with hope and a song in my heart.
Last night's programme was full of interesting things. A listener complained to the BBC that I was rude to David Cameron. Apparently I tried to "trip him up with trivial questions and make things awkward for him. We should be treating guests with respect."
Two other people were upset I didn't correct a guest who "mistakenly referred to the Bishop Of Southwark as the Bishop Of Woolwich". The listeners were annoyed by this and think I should have corrected the error. In fact, the person who referred to the Bishop Of Southwark as the Bishop Of Woolwich was (according to our guest) the Bishop Of Southwark, when he was drunk. So if you're going to bash anyone...
One email we had to agree with was about our reference - in a news bulletin - to the "girls" affected by the murders in Ipswich. One listener wrote complaining that we should "please adhere to NUJ guidelines and refrain from referring to women who work as prostitutes as "girls". They are not children.". She's right of course. We shouldn't call them girls and we'll do our best not to.
We love hearing from our listeners - whatever the comments. And sometimes listeners come to our rescue. For example, the other day we heard from Helen, who emailed this:
"I gather you are having problems dealing with the avalanche of listeners' images.
I am very computer literate (not in the programming sense but can deal with uploading images to a website) and would be happy to volunteer to assist. I realise it may be impossible - for all kinds of byzantine reasons - for my offer to be accepted, but just in case I am being overly cynical, I could offer a day or a couple of half days, maybe more and could do this weekend, evenings or one day next week.
How's that for a reasonably concrete offer?"
We loved that offer so much - we've taken Helen up on it. She'll be here from tomorrow!
By the way - did you enjoy the Water Vole item last night? Tomorrow's blog will have a bit of background on it...featuring audio...
