9 St Nicholas Place is a very colourful and flexible space for broadcasting. Here, on 23rd March 2007, is former BBC Director-General Mark Thompson live on the air and discussing community radio with students from De Montfort University and volunteers from community radio stations in Leicestershire.

It was the first -and last - time I held a microphone in front of a DG!
