We often get requests from the media to help with an article or news report that they are working on. We will put here any requests that we get. Sometimes these requests have very tight time lines.
The media are requested to put their enquiry in writing to us. When they do this they are asked to include a contact name, contact telephone number. What the enquiry is about. If they are producing a programme or writing an article, we need to know what that is and what they require from us. We also need to know the cut off date, and that it is helpful to have as much notice as possible, so that we can help them.
If you see a request that you feel you want to get involved in, please contact them DIRECT, DO NOT contact BTG. It only takes up time which could be spent with the media person who has made the request.
Below are the latest request(s) we have received:-
