If you are a CM who is considering giving up because of the EYFS, then BBC News would very much like to talk to you.

If you are interested, please email me on arthur dot adams53 at tiscali dot co dot uk and I can then mail you a name and number to contact.

Hi Arfa - not me - as I'm not giving up

Would they be prepared to discuss someone who thinks it will make life difficult & isn't ideal?

Arfa Tue 26-Aug-08 12:53:12

Possibly. You could speak to the BBC person and see what they think.

Please email me.

KatyMac Tue 26-Aug-08 12:56:06

KatyMac Tue 26-Aug-08 15:57:17

Well I was semi famous on Woman's Hour.....will I be very famous on Breakfast Time?

MrsFluffleHasAWuffle Tue 26-Aug-08 16:03:13

When will this be aired?

KatyMac Tue 26-Aug-08 16:05:03


MrsFluffleHasAWuffle Tue 26-Aug-08 16:07:47

Mamazon Tue 26-Aug-08 16:08:53

i thought the title said they wanted to tal abut EYES.
i had to come in and find out what a CM was meant to know that an optician wouldn't

Booh Tue 26-Aug-08 16:11:24

I was on our local BBc radio station talking about it last week!

Arfa Tue 26-Aug-08 16:20:43

This might be a silly question, but were you for or against, Booh?

nannynick Tue 26-Aug-08 18:52:34

Air time is due to be 07:30, BBC1.
If setting your PVR/video recorder, I would suggest recording 07:00-08:00, to make sure you catch it.

KatyMac Tue 26-Aug-08 21:58:56

& Radio 5 at either (or both) 6:35 & 8:20

nannynick Tue 26-Aug-08 22:44:00

06:35 hmm, I'll just be getting up then.

MrsFluffleHasAWuffle Wed 27-Aug-08 12:45:51

Lovely to put a face to the name Katy you were very very good

AbbaFan Wed 27-Aug-08 12:54:05

I missed it sad

Will it be on-line anywhere to catch up with?

MrsFluffleHasAWuffle Wed 27-Aug-08 13:04:21 I would imagine?

Arfa Wed 27-Aug-08 13:07:53

You might see something on News 24, but you can't see BBC Breakfast again. However, you can hear Katymac on Radio 5 Breakfast via the BBC iPlayer.

You don't have to listen to the whole programme because she is on at 33 minutes into the programme and in a slightly longer piece with someone from Ofsted at 2 hours 19 minutes.

KatyMac Wed 27-Aug-08 15:23:48

Did I do OK?

southeastastra Wed 27-Aug-08 15:25:21

yes! you made me laugh! well done, been on radio4 now this grin

KatyMac Wed 27-Aug-08 15:39:10

Whih bit made you laugh (was I funny ha-ha or funny peculiar?)

KatyMac Wed 27-Aug-08 15:54:37

DH forgot to tape me

Arfa Wed 27-Aug-08 16:25:40

KatyMac: we've recorded it onto DVD so we can send you a copy once we've got our breath back.

PS Didn't anyone see Pat, my wife, in her recorded bit that was shown at 6am and 7am?

Also, the responses to the BBC News web page about the Ofsted report are ALL negative. As the BBC has to show balance, that must mean that all responses they received from CMs and parents alike must have been against the overly bureaucratic paperwork bit of the EYFS.

southeastastra Wed 27-Aug-08 17:39:06

no not funny peculiar! was the bit when you were saying about if a child took their first steps etc
