BBC Education Radio. The series I produced varied from geography to nature conservation and science subjects. On location it was essential to be able to photograph as well as record. The pictures were needed for the Radiovision filmstrips, children's pamphlets, PR and other publications.

• I drilled myself to be able to do both - practising loading film while talking to an interviewer, setting up an interview with a picture in mind.

• A 24mm lens was invaluable because you could interview someone and without them knowing they would describe what was going on the foreground as well as the context. Children listening to the broadcasts and looking at the pamphlets - got the full picture.
