> I was interviewed in late October by Dini Petty (see the write-up on her
> pasted below). A remarkable woman!
> The interviews will be broadcast on CFRB (dial 1010,
> this Saturday, Nov 13, on The Dini Petty Show, 7 to 8 PM, EST.
> We talked for 10 minutes on radiation health effects and for 10 minutes on
> nuclear power.
> P.S. I met Dini two years ago at a workshop in Ottawa, sponsored by the
> Federal Provincial Territorial Radiation Protection Committee, to discuss
> what the dose limits should be for pregnant workers. Dini Petty was the
> facilitator. I brought several papers on the beneficial health effects of
> low doses of radiation (50 copies of each). The committee ran off more
> copies and distributed them to all of the participants. People were
> vigorously about where, in the range from 1 to 10 mSv, the annual limit
> should be, and I kept pointing out that the HPS and the ANS have issued
> position papers stating that there are no observable adverse effects below
> dose of 100 mSv. Dini could not understand what the fuss was all about.
> She said that she was going to interview me some day.

> thousand hours as pilot-in-command of a "pink" Hughes 300 helicopter,
> wearing her pink jumpsuit.
> At City TV, Dini set precedents as the award-winning anchor of Toronto’s
> City-TV and hosted an innovative talk show that set Canadian broadcast
> records for size of its viewing audience.
> In 1980 Dini created television history when the camera followed her
> thorough the pregnancy and birth of her son Nicholas. This award-winning
> documentary helped to demystify and break down the stigma of pregnancy and
> Dini won many awards for her documentary work at City TV as writer and
> on Citypulse News at 6:00, where Dini co-anchored and reported. During her
> 25 year television career, Dini has been honoured with other awards
> including six Can Pro Awards for television excellence for either her talk
> show or documentary work, four Gemini awards for her interviewing skills
> The NATPE International Iris Award - an American award for best
> International Program for her interview with Red Skelton.
> In 1992 the Royal General Bulb Growers Assoc. of the Netherlands
> Dini for her two decades of public service and had a triumph tulip named
> after her.
> She has also written a children’s book – an epic poem entitled The Queen,
