But what a surprise there were photos in costume to be taken too! What fun!
There were the three of us: an undergraduate art student, a recently graduated chap and myself: representing the postgraduate students.
We were asked what was good about studying at Brookes and I told of the excellent support, the resources and the library databases which give access to so many journals for research. Also to supportive and knowledgeable tutors and excellent facilities. Finally I was asked what the 150th birthday meant to me- other than a free lunch- and I cam up with something inane such as a sense of tradition and history .... And THAT's the only bit they kept! They cut the good stuff about post graduate study at Brookes.
But I did get my few seconds of ''fame'' , live on TV and BBC1 no less! On the news in Oxford Today:
Here's the link to a video of the news on Youtube as it is too long and large to save into this post, it was rejected by Blogger.
WOW what a day that was... even if I sound and look, well shall we say not as I had hoped or imagined?
