Heart of the Matter
David Aird produces and presents the weekly programme called ‘Heart of the Matter’ broadcast every Sunday morning between 8 and 10 am.
Before BDFM started broadcasting Colin McCall asked Ruth Aird and Harvey Stalker to be involved. They were keen to assist from day one and the programme has gone almost every Sunday morning since May 2007.
Those interviewed on the programme share what ‘the heart of the matter’ is for them. The music is selected to fit in with what is being discussed.
The team behind the programme assists in a variety of ways: interviewing; diary keeping; communicating with potential interviewees; writing articles, poetry and drama and work in the studio.
More recently one of the programmes was short listed for a Jerusalem Award (photos can be seen on their site for 2014), a national competition hosted at BAFTA in Piccadilly. Although the programme did not win its category, the team that attended thoroughly enjoyed themselves on a whirlwind trip down to London. There is always another year!
