RAF on YouTube and Your Ideas

Post categories:

Chris Vallance | 11:23 UK time, Saturday, 4 August 2007

Just recorded an interview with the RAF's own Afghanistan based YouTube correspondent SAC Paul Goodfellow about his video diary. There's more background on what he's doing here.

That interview will air on the next segment, but we're still in the market for a few other stories. Tuesday will be our inaugural podcast episode. Any ideas, comments, twitter direct message, or email podsandblogs@bbc.co.uk are your best options.

In the meantime here's one of "Goody's" videos..

Paul is quite open about one of the aims of his videos, which the RAF encourage and support, being to attract recruits but equally he says he's not told what to say and he hopes to present an authentic picture of life on the base. The US military has had a love-hate relationship with blogging, and indeed with YouTube. I think it's fair to say the UK military is more cautious in what it allows service personnel to post, which makes Paul's video channel a particularly interesting development. We'll talk about the bigger issues with a senior figure from the RAF on Monday.
