The journalist, Zahid Hossain Khan, also represented Prothom Alo Newspaper, which was where the confusion had come from. Anyway, I wasn't dressed for a TV interview but there was no time to go back and change now.
After the interviews, we had the look at the editing suites, studios and then went to upstairs to meet their MD, Simon Dring, who is a British media man now living in Australia but coming and working in Dhaka for months at a time. It was all really interesting and they definitely made me feel special.
By 9 pm we were on our way back to Gulshan to meet friends having had a really interesting time. My interview was shown a week later on 1 March 2014 but unfortunately they had cut my comments about the Spoon-billed Sandpipers, which was a real shame.
