When Dany Mitzman and I went to the Outer Hebrides in August to record our report for BBC Woman’s Hour, to accompany my book published by Frances Lincoln, we also made this report for Deutsche Welle Radio, featuring aspects of the business side to Harris Tweed. I was there in the background making sure that everything that I thought was important about the industry was covered in the report. I of course was the tour guide and helped Dany decide on who would be the key interviewees for the program.

The Harris Tweed comeback

Today on my travels around The Outer Hebrides, (for BBC Woman’s Hour), I was invited as a guest on the Drive Time radio program at Isles FM.  Armed with my Harris Tweed book I went to visit the team at the radio station to have my first EVER live radio interview.

I remember the casual chats that Richard Bacon holds during his radio shows and imagined it would be just like them, so at ease I sat at the corner of the desk opposite the presenter ready for my 5 minutes of fame.
