Hi April

I saw your video on Youtube of Remembrance Day in Vancouver and I was wondering if you’d mind us using it for Your World News, which is a BBC World short programme that goes out tomorrow. I’m putting together a small package on Remembrance Day and was wondering if you’d mind. We’d credit your name.

Also just to double check, you did take them yourself?

And lastly, if Remembrance has a special meaning to you, please email me a phone number and I’ll try and talk to you if you’re happy for me to.

Thanks a lot,


Silvia Costeloe

Many thanks to Silvia Costeloe and Anna Adams of BBC News! 🙂
