Terry in the Media

Postby Tonyblack » Tue Sep 02, 2008 9:34 am

Have you seen an article or an interview about Terry online?

Post a link to them here.

Terry was interviewed last night on BBC Radio 4's Front Row and it's available to 'listen again' HERE.

You need to click on the 'listen' link. The actual Terry bit starts at '05.30'.

Not sure how long it will be available for or if our members from outside the UK will be able to access it. :)

Usually a week. I know this because when the Beeb had the Night Watch on radio 4 I tried to listen to the first 2 episodes again, before tuning in for the third. When it wasn't there I learned this was their standard.
I'm not sure about outside of the UK though.

Nice to see he wears his hat even in the house :)

Thanks Dotsie - that was really interesting and I'm kind of glad to read something about Terry that didn't just focus on his illness - as he says in the interview: That's in the Public Domain. :D

Hi boohoo! :D

I think it's a site set up by fans rather than Terry's own page - but I may be wrong.

Interesting story here about Terry trying a new type of helmet designed to fight dementia. :)

Thanks Tony, that was really interesting. But does Sir Terry actually class himself as a sci fi writer? The bit at the end implies a quote.
