Well done NanaSue I think you did an excellent job.....infact there is a whole thread dedicated to you over on gen :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

Thanks for the comments - I just happen to live in London so it is easy for them.

They gave me the pointers they wanted in the film - I just had to make some comments. I took several hours - several takes. :-D :-D

yes, well, my Lancashire accent could be a problem for some folk ........................

I've never lost it in 45 years, BUT I have lost my "ear" for other English accents!

You did very well in front of the camera and didn’t seem especially nervous.

I could understand you perfectly. Mind you, if someone with a strong Northern or Glaswegian accent does one that might be a different matter. ;-)

NanaSue, i would hope that your 'breaking the ice' will spur some more experienced members to contribute a video.

Especially those who help on the boards on a regular basis as I do think your phrasing rather implies that you are a regular helper, which might be a disappointment to anyone expecting a reply from you personally, as you don't seem to be posting very often?

Same here Sylvia. I was invited as a valued researcher!

I wouldn't want some of the oddballs recognising me!

Unfortunately, I had trouble understanding your accent. That's probably a pity!

I got an email, and did offer to do one of those videos ............. but they wouldn't travel over here. :-D
