Skill, Stamina and Luck


A while ago, I did an interview with a BBC journalist making a programme about interactive fiction. Whenever this happens, the journalists will always assure you that they'll let you know when the programme will be broadcast, but around half the time they forget. So it is, that only yesterday did I discover that I made it into a BBC documentary on the history of interactive fiction, broadcast at the end of February (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b071h083).

It's actually not a bad piece of work, and included some early material about choose-your-own-adventure games of which I was unaware. OK, so it didn't include some of which I was aware, but still, it's always good to learn new material.

Needless to say, my own contribution (about 26 seconds in) was limited to 4-second sections of rants I gave during 90 minutes of conversation, but hey, at least I got airtime even if I do sound bitter and bonkers.
