Pigeon vs broadband trailer on the BBC
Audio of a trailer intereview I did with the BBC last night talking about the rerun of the South African broadband versus pigeon race but in the UK this Thursday.
Update 17.20 15th Sept
There is a fair bit of media interest in this event with live radio interviews for BC Humberside and BBC Lincolnshire for tomorrow’s breakfast shows, mid morning and drivetime on BBC Lincolnshire as well as extensive TV coverage on Look North. The BBC main news website is also covering the event.
Look out for the rory&tref hashtag on twitter during the day. Rory and Tref are the two pigeons that will be carrying the microSD cards (Rory Stewart is the MP for Penrith). Check out the Cumbrian Rural Broadband event he is organising here.
On a side note we will know the exact time of arrival of the pigeons back in the loft because they will be RF ID tagged. I am expecting a convincing avian victory.
