|Old Broadcasting House this morning.|
You can listen to the broadcast here; my bit about Mary Magdalene begins at 21.45 into the programme.
I also did a recorded interview for the BBC's Good Morning Scotland programme to be broadcast tomorrow, Saturday. This interview involved sitting in an empty room looking at a red light and a microphone and hearing somebody at the other end of my earphones with whom I had a conversation. I take it on trust that something really happened.
The whole experience was eerie, both interviews. The BBC's Old Broadcasting House is comprised of the original Art Deco building to which has been added a modern glass and steel structure. Altogether the place is huge inside, a warren of rooms with heavy soundproof doors and corridors that confusingly go round and round corners as though designed to ensure you can never get out and that boiling oil can be dropped on your head while you are inside.
The Scottish interview was in a building round the corner and as you can see from the photograph there was nobody there. I might as well have been talking to a Martian. In fact what passed through my mind was Mary Magdalene finding herself in the empty tomb.
The BBC Scotland interview can be heard here at 1 hour 34 minutes and 40 seconds into the programme.
