Libby actually knows a bit about ringing too, as I gave her a handling
lesson at Canterbury Cathedral many years ago and got to know her and Paul
(Heiney) quite well when I worked for the National Trust.

I assume those of us overseas can listen to this broadcast on line ...was it
the programme 'Mid Week'?

Absolutely agree - well done Philip Earis.


Having worked with Brian Blessed and knowing how tough live radio is,
Philip did a good job and made ringing seem intelligent, accessible and
fun. And even better - young.

I thought Philip did really well to get a word in edge ways with the 
larger-than-life Brian Blessed dominating proceedings, and having 
been branded early in the programme as a "geek" by presenter Libby

Most of what Philip said seemed eminently sensible and intelligible 
to the lay person - including his parting shot that ringing is fun 
and safe (in response to the inevitable "do you get hauled up to the 
ceiling?" question.
