Conversations with educators and those supporting education in S.E.Asia .
Episode 6
This recording was originally made early in 1980

This programme is a little different from the normal as it is a remix of an interview on British Forces Broadcasting Service (BFBS) with Les Clarke early in 1980 in Hong Kong.

Les was an English teacher at Island School, one of the ESF schools in Hong Kong and at weekends he was also a news broadcaster on Hong Kong television. He was also active in H.K.drama productions.

Les is now living somewhere in England and I've lost touch with him ... so if you know where he is then let him know that this recording is now online.

The music in the interview has been taken out for copyright reasons.

Episode 4
This recording was made on 5th January 2007

In this program Chris talks with Nick Brummitt, Founder of ISC Research .. an organisation, which on the front page of its website, www.iscresearch.com states ...
"Mapping the Status and Development of the International School World"

This is a unique interview as Nick offers an informed worldwide view of the growth of the whole international school community, not only from the extensive database that is available online but also as a result of his annual personal visits to schools and school professional organisations.

ISC Research does have the potential of saving suppliers to schools considerable time and money .... but also offers options to parents who may be looking for international schools.

In addition ISC Research offers Headteachers and School Business managers free access to the online database in order to help them with their own school strategic planning.

ISCResearch is at http://www.iscresearch.com
