Hello,

I had a call today from a journalist who does Stateline on the ABC (I think it was, it was hard to hear on the train).

Apparently this episode will be aired Friday, Sept 21. I haven't been interviewed yet but I'll keep you posted on how this is going. I think Bundygrrrl will be interviewed too.

Thanks for the support. Have been told it'll probably be the week after, so Sept 28. Smiley

Good luck. I hope that they are as professional and receptive as the stateline people here in SA.
Keep us informed on how it goes.

Yeah that was one of them.
This is possibly your best shot of finding out anything so perhaps speak to them of putting out an appeal to anyone who might know who your donor is. It might just be a one liner that if anyone thinks they know who your father is to give the station a call. If the oppurtunity is there take it. You may feel silly about doing it (I know I did), but nothing ventured nothing gained.

Had the interview tonight and I thought it went well but I have no idea how I will appear on TV and to the public. My parents were also interviewed and I think they did an awesome job as it is the first time they have gone public about this.

Damian, I did make the appeal, and so did my Dad so hopefully they show one or both of those.

Apparently Bundygrrrl and Leonie will be in the story too, so I think my bit and my parents bit will be quite short when shown, but we'll see.

Also, I was not allowed to mention this website or Dr Douglas-Smith (if I did it would have been edited out), but they are going to show the website on screen. So hopefully that gets shown and it's visible enough for people to notice it.

That's excellent.
Ask them to give you a copy. They sent me one.
I don't have ABC 2 so will unfortunately miss it. But after meeting you last year I'm sure you would have done a great job.

She said she isn't allowed to send us a copy anymore. Sad So we'll have to tape it.

Thats great Adam - I will be watching on Friday night. I will check around and find out if any of my friends have a DVD recorder and copy it for me. (I dont have one)
That is really great and sends out a good message to people with your Dad asking for the donor to come forward - it kind of doesnt make it seem like you are just a disgruntled dc person - sorry to put it like that - but that is how some people perceive it to be. (not my point of view) Anyway I really hope they put it on.
