The Wonderful World of Thinking For Yourself!

What ho, my lovelies. I seem to be starting off my blog posts these days as if I am the Mr. Stephen Fry.

And why not? For, now that I am a star of the small screen, why shouldn’t I aim to be like the ubiquitous Mr. Fry (my lack of certain talents notwithstanding)?

Last Sunday José Barbosa,, myself and camera operator Michael, spent over three hours shooting three minutes of a critical thinking toolkit for the “Media 7” science special. José, who I think wants to be a milliner, bade me wear my Victorian suit and doff a fez for the proceedings.

This is the result (let’s hope TVNZ don’t decide to pull it).
