Hello there,

My name is Martin Conroy. I am an associate producer for European MarketWrap – on the pan-European channel CNBC. MarketWrap is a three hour live show that is broadcast all over Europe and Asia. The show is aimed at retail investors. Providing advice as well as up to the minute data about their investments.

Every week we have a special section highlighting a particular issue or event that we feel is pertinent to the viewers. It is with this in mind that I approach your organisation. On Thursday 19th July 2001 (20:30 CET) we will be doing a special on the Anti-capitalism movement. We have approached a great many people opposed to Capitalism including Naomi Klein who has expressed interest in appearing on the panel discussion. It is my request that the WTO be represented in the talks. So could whomever is the spokesperson for the organisation in matters such as these please contact me.

Thank you for your assistance.

Hi there Martin,

We had some mail problems last week–or rather, our upstream provider did, which amounts to the same thing–so I don’t know if you got my last message. In any case: did you have a chance to send the tape of the MarketWrap broadcast?

And again, I enjoyed very much being on the show, and found particularly trenchant what Vernon Ellis had to say. What a perceptive fellow!

Cheers,
Granwyth

Hello there Granwyth,

Sorry for the delay and silence. I have been on holiday. I left the tape with my collegues, but I can’t seem to get any sense whether it was sent or not. I have requested that another dub be made. I will personally make sure that this one is sent. Please send me the address you want the tape to go to again and I will send it off.

So sorry for the delay (my tans good though)
Martin
