Slightly disappointing, I wasn’t interviewed in the end but I did have some of my robot progeny filmed with me in the background.  A colleague, Andy, did the interview instead.

What it came down to was that they only needed one person and Andy is more senior (he has his PhD) so he is more appropriate to represent the university on TV.  Better to have ‘Dr P…’ than ‘Student Bill’.

Shame, I was looking forward to that, but it was the right decision.

On the plus side, I now have some smart new trousers!
