I was interviewed by Eddie Mair for Radio Four's iPM the other day. The piece was about Norwich Mustard, but my 1964 Fordson tractor also got a mention.

Portland Place is certainly more impressive than Radio Norfolk's base in Norwich, bustling with activity and with far larger studios. But then this is the home of the BBC. Reassuringly, I noticed on the big screen in reception that my friend Gavin Ramjaun was on air.

Eddie Mair is of course an expert at putting his interviewees at ease. We joked about beards, haircuts and he took more than a passing interest in my tractor. Joining us from Norwich was Colman's pensioner Chris Lynch, who is proving an invaluable ally as I strive to put Norwich Mustard on the map.

The interview went well, and when broadcast contained some extracts from news broadcasts about the closure of Colman's Norwich factory.

Here's a link to the BBC podcast of the interview
