Wargaming on the BBC (again!)

I am pleased to report that wargaming was again mentioned on the BBC this morning.  In this case it was BBC Radio Sheffield where presenter Toby Foster interviewed Sheffield Wargames Society stalwart Mark Hides.  The link to the show is here - scroll forward to 02:17:10 to hear Mark.
During the piece - which lasted for about six minutes - Mark was able to successfully plug Sheffield Wargames Society.

I should add that Radio Sheffield originally rang me at 0845 and arranged to call me back between 0900-1000.  I immediately rang Mark - while I am the Society Chairman he is the Publicity Officer - and told him what was happening.  It was as well I did so because they then rang him for the interview!

As Jeff remarked, it's just good that we have media interest and once again the SWS 'A' Team, delivered.

What can I say?

We're the Starsky & Hutch of wargaming...

Starsky and Hutch? I'm not sure if that's a critique of my dress sense or my driving....
