Tester 4.5: beards and bottle banks

Leila and Russell This week's tester episode. Offcuts, out-takes and leftovers to tease and entice.

Our special guest next week is the internet's Russell Davies. Russell organises London's most Interesting conference every year (2007, 2008, 2009), writes a column in Wired UK and is part of the Really Interesting Group. His interview is brilliant and there's loads of great stuff to come next week; today's offcuts give just a sense of where our conversation goes. Did you know he was in a band? Tune in next week to hear all about it. We'll also be talking to Karen Slavick about her excellent Sleep Talkin Man blog. Essentially, she writes down her husbands obscene and bizarre sleep ramblings which is every bit as funny as it sounds.

Included in this tester are some bits of both interviews we won't get around to using in the full episode next Thursday, plus the remnants of the South African snack testing with Robert Brook and Dave Green. That's the end of the South African snacks now. It's nearly Christmas after all, so the next two or three episodes will become decidedly more festive. You'll also notice that we've finally got a theme tune; In Computers by Robyn Wilder and her band Bambino Special. Hope you like it as much as we do. I can't stop humming it. As well as this tester episode, you've hopefully already seen the video outtakes Leila edited from this week's recording session (you finally get to see how adorably shambolic the whole process really is).

    Can’t believe the South African snack testing has come to an end so soon.

    Gosh, yes. It feels like only the fifth of November since their first appearance.
