See above clip of Steve Christian’s contribution to this morning’s Chris Evans Radio BBC2 breakfast programme. The interview, where Steve featured as the ‘mystery guest’ came about when Chris was inundated with supportive texts on yesterday’s show when he mentioned TT3D: Closer to the Edge in the course of the programme. Steve’s interview went out just after 8.30am this morning and it proved to be a huge boost, not only for the highly successful film, but also for the TT Races and the Island itself. The show has a weekly audience of over 8 million listeners and is currently the most popular radio show in the UK.
As with the recent Oscar nomination received by the Isle of Man co-financed and co-produced animated feature film Chico & Rita, Steve’s interview on the United Kingdom’s most listened to radio programme is a wonderful example of positive and far-reaching country branding that the Isle of Man can achieve through its film industry.
