SolarSPELL featured on BBC World Service Program Click

BBC World Service_0BBC-click-220x220

A short while ago, I was interviewed about the SPELL project on the BBC World Service Program Click. It was a fantastic opportunity to talk about what our solar digital libraries are, how they work, what the content is, and why having great content is so important. It was perfect timing to raise awareness of the project in advance of our deployments in Vanuatu and Micronesia in the coming weeks.

Above is a YouTube video with the interview and a slideshow of relevant photos.

If you’d prefer to listen to the full length podcast, here is a link to the Click website with the episode, and the SPELL interview starts at about 21:50.

Many thanks to Gareth Mitchell for a lovely interview, and to Colin Grant for finding out about the project and making the interview possible.
