First of all, it's worth noting that this was my third attempt at getting C to come and talk to me in front of the webcam. In the end I told him that I gave up and would get his sister to do her interview first, and that seemed to prompt him to get on and give it a go!

Thank you very much C, do you have any questions for me? Umm no. Thank you for doing this interview.
Do pop back in the next week or so to see the interview with Bug. She's a very different character, as you'll see very clearly from her answers and her confidence in front of the camera. For a start it will take me about three times as long to type up the transcript of her interview because she talks a lot more than C!
