    This sounds positive...20 second sound bites though ...very tricky to get it all in that short time ...think a list of normal activities that are restricted might work eg showering , talking to friends etc? Or possibly the symptoms other than “tiredness”

    The deadline for videos is Friday 1st June. Sorry it is so tight. It couldn’t be helped.

    Robyn explains:

    “I am a researcher on a Sky One programme called What’s Up TV. We are an arts and culture magazine show with a reach of 100,000 households, and we have a young demographic of 16-25.
