DV or Home Video Pix request by Corporate Media lackey (but it's Darius B. so that's kind of all right...)


Some of you might know me from Undercurrents training days/ICA talks/Genova/DSEI/Mayday... anyway, I am a BBC News Producer -- but an "OK one" -- apparently...

Today I am looking for any footage taken by people who were at the Leeds Festival last night. Apparently -- not unlike last year -- it kicked off towards the end of the evening, with a lot of riot police involvement, helicopters and (again) all the bogs being torched.

If anyone has interesting stuff and deosn't mind me maybe using it for today's BBC-1 News/News-24 then call me on 07785 790 560 and I'll liase with our peopel up in Leeds...

Obviously any material we aquire could be broadcast -- so don't give us pix you'd rather no-one saw.
