Just had a camera crew come up to me at work and film me for a French TV programme about the Royal family. I had to act and everything. Was horrible. Wish i wasn't wearing socks and sandals too! :oops: (they're comfy round the office - ok? )

Luckily they spent more energy focusing on my monitor than me. Probably a better thing for them too.

they were doing a documentary on the queen and a bit about an exhibition that we are hosting in France and they just appeared and i had to have the director come over to me and talk about pictures and i had to pretend to work on them on the screen. It was horrible. I was rubbish. And I mumbled, so i suppose they'll be voice overing my bit.

Sandals and socks though - what will the style concious french think of that!? Ha ha.

That's cool, maybe you'll be like David Prowse in Star Wars and get dubbed by James Earl Jones.
