I am a bit of an anglophile, particularly with regards to the British media. The BBC is unsurpassed in its tv and its radio, but the commercial networks aren't too far behind, particularly ITV (Independent TV). I once had a job interview with one of their subsidiaries, Granada TV in Manchester. I had placed a job want ad in 'The Economist'. More hopeful than confident, I traveled up from London to Manchester, for the interview, an audition of sorts. Needless to say, I didn't get to the next round.. But at least they reimbursed me for my rail journey from London.
Now let's see how Paul does for his one chance of glory, at his audition, in an amateur talent show, for all ages, in ITV's first 'Britain's Got Talent' tryouts in Cardiff, Wales. This is quite a heart warming little story...After hundreds of contestants, most of them... well, giving very amateur uneven performances, CLICK and WATCH Paul's 'unexpected' audition.
As a follow up, if you want to see how he progressed (*after having watched the above link) click twice, the clip below (6:12 Paul Potts).
