    A couple of people mentioned this on another forum:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p006jj5d/Alfie_and_Charlie_at_Breakfast_26_02_2010/

    It supposedly starts
    Somebody else said:
    A paeditrician was on.

    Somebody talked about their troubles with severe ME.

    Be warned, there is supposedly some very annoying man in it.

    I haven't listened to it but sounds like some might be interested in it (particularly I suppose people from the area or know before from there who might have listened).

    Tom, thank you. I listened to the whole thing. Although it didn't cover everything, at least it wasn't just a three minute story with a 30-second soundbite. Thankfully, all on the panel showed compassion to take in information. And whoever the man was, he showed particular insight. I kept waiting for someone to use an example of another illness to show it isn't a matter of being lazy. Finally, someone used the flu. That stopped the doubter.

    I hope this show really helped you guys in that area. The point is, you can not convey the complexity and sometimes serious debility and biological cause of this illness without some time.

    And I hate to hear you are having what seems to be an outbreak. Maybe some attention will come to you now.

    Tina

    Thanks Tina.
    But just to be precise, I'm in (the Republic of) Ireland* which is not part of the UK. It's maybe a bit like Canada and the US (or New Zealand and Australia).

    * maybe sometimes known in north America as "Southern Ireland" because there is a place called Northern Ireland which is part of the UK. The Rep. of Ireland is of course much bigger than Northern Ireland and there's even a bit on the top of the island.
