"Deborah Bull on Radio Four's 'Front Row'"
 
  
There was an excellent interview with Deborah Bull in Monday's 'Woman's Hour'. In conclusion Jenni Murray said that Deborah would be reading diary extracts in next week's 'Front Row' I think giving a commentary on rehearsals for 'Giselle'. It wasn't very explicit and I'm not sure if she will be on every night or even when it starts. I rang the Beeb just now for clarification but they were vague themselves and had to resort to reading next week's Radio Times (which made no mention of DB on Front Row). I have e-mailed requesting further information and will post further when I hear.

   I heard half of the trailer for the Woman's Hour thing and assumed that it must have been DB (swapped her tutu for a seat on the Arts Council or some such line was used) - was she talking about her Arts Council work?

I have a friend who's a Radio 3 producer - I could ask her to ferret a bit on the subject if your email bears no fruit?

   Sorry, we've all missed Deborah on Front Row- it was Mon-Weds this week! (but, the upside of this is my friend at R4 was the one who found this out so it WAs worth emailing her! She even emailed Bruce with the reply!)

   Anneleise - I don't understand. What information did they e-mail to Bruce?

Frankly, I'm furious with the Beeb for not giving us adequate information about this programme.

I think there was some email mix-up and I got the reply that was really ment for Anneleise ...much of content appeared to be private so I forwarded asap.

It would be nice to say I had a special BBC pack.. regretably not!

Maybe not, but you do know a not-so-little bird who happens to work for BBC Radio. If you talk nicely to Jenny, she might let you have my address/number! Can't promise actually to be able to find out anything useful, however - sometimes the Beeb can be unbelievably clam-like over the most unlikely things.

   I'm afraid I don't have any details about Deborah's series on Front Row, but if you missed her interview on Woman's Hour (in which she talked about her dancing career and her new role as spokesperson for the arts) it will be repeated on the Saturday edition of the programme at 4pm on Radio 4. You can also listen to it until the end of the weekend by visiting the Woman's Hour website - www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/womanshour.

   Gaby - Thank you for this information. Can you give me some link into Deborah Bull's unnanounced contributions to 'Front Row' this week? I would be grateful.

I am deeply unimpressed by the BBC's reluctance to pass information about upcoming programmes to obviously interested groups such as ballet.co. Why should one have to 'know' some producer to winkle out such information? I e-mailed 'Front Row' yesterday to ask for details about the Front Row items to put on this board and have so far not received a response.

Not good enough.

   I have checked with Front Row and Deborah's 'behind the scenes' series has not been broadcast yet. It should be on, as originally suggested by Woman's Hour, next week (ie week beginning 12th Feb). Front Row is broadcast week nights at 7.15pm, and at the moment Deborah's contribution is scheduled in for Tues, Thurs and Fri. However, as always with live programming, this can change at the last moment.

I'm glad you enjoyed Deborah's interview on Woman's Hour and I hope you manage to catch her on Front Row.

Gaby Hornsby
Producer, Woman's Hour

   What a relief! My little bird in the BBC said that according to Front Row's production notes Deborah should have been on Mon, Tues and Weds of this week - and this week is the first time in ages when I haven't heard Front Row at all! Next week I shall listen carefully!

   Gaby

Many thanks for this response - glad I can still hear Deborah Bull on Front Row next week.

It seems a shame that FR and other arts programmes both on BBC and ITV either cannot - or are unwilling to - give prior information to relative arts websites about upcoming programmes. Why can't these arts programmes e-mail their press releases to the arts websites?

Possibly I'm naive and there's some obvious explanation to this mystery.

   Remembering a conversation with my Radio 3 friend before they invited Matthew Bourne onto their show, I suspect that press releases would often be a waste of time! Front Row in particular is live and topical and although obviously programmes are planned in advance things will change at the last minute! EG at this time of year there will be more than usual obituaries/ tributes which come up rather unexpectedly... Another example: guests who are only in this country for a short while will presumably stick pretty rigidly to an engagement at the start of their tour, but apart from that I bet the production team spend quite a lot of time tearing their hair out because of cancellations! But maybe I'm being naive too?
