  Media compilation

This trip has been instructive in many ways. One of the things we got a good insight in, is media. It’s been most interesting to see how news spreads through different news channels.

We got interviewed by over 20 newspapers and magazines, 7 radio programmes and 3 times on television news. There was also a programme about the car and we participated in TV-show where environmental friendly cars competed. One of the television recordings was sold to other countries. On of the countries was Island, and that’s why we got the question: “If it is possible to power the producer on dried fish?”.

Interview in Värmland

I’ll never forget the last day when we were in a hurry to Furudal. I was interviewed on telephone by a radio program. A local newspaper came in the middle of the interview.

When we were done, we left for Furudal. The telephone started to ring and three different persons from the Swedish News Agency called me. One of them wanted pictures of the car, one wanted to record television and the last one wanted the story. While I were sending pictures with the computer and talking to the news agency on the telephone, my mother called on the other telephone and said that they talked about us on the radio.

When the telephone interview with the news agency was done, all hell broke loose. Everybody called at the same time; television, radio and newspapers. We managed to schedule both a radio interview and television recording on the way to Furudal and when we arrived two newspaper magazines was waiting for us.

It was quite tough to handle three newspapers, two radio interviews, a television interview and the news agency in one day, but it was really fun!
