"20:20 Vision" programme on East London News

What follows is a sound-only recording of Charlotte Monro from Action4Whipps, Anna Moore from the Green at Barts Health campaign and host Jenny Fisher of East London News speaking on the "20:20 Vision" programme 10pm yesterday evening, Tuesday 17th November

The public event was streamed live on the VodTalk Youtube Channel where it will no doubt be posted eventually as a full video, but for now we can bring you the sound track. With only three participants it isn't strictly necessary to have the video content in order to know who's talking, but as soon as it becomes available we will give you that also. If anybody happens to know of a link where the full version is available please let me know by emailing David Gardiner

Charlotte Monro & Anna Moor on East London News (Sound only) Tuesday 17th November 2020

How wonderful is the Internet? I have just been sent the link! So here is the full version, with video. I'll leave the "sound only" version in position since it's sometimes nice to be able to listen without distraction while you do other things. The first 4 minutes 45 seconds of the video recording is just technobabble so you can push the slider on the player across to that point without missing anything.
