I am sorry I could not listen to Dini Betty interview personally in radio here in Taiwan.
A talk of a popular media man can make the public to understand what is radiation and nuclear energy and power plants. Dini Betty might be better than 100 scientists to do such jop. The ICRP, IAEA, etc could educate the public with truth of radiation and nuclear energy. Is the truth really told!? . All the RHS people should do more thing on that!

>She was also a remarkable pilot. She gave an after-dinner talk at the workshop. She mentioned a recurring problem in her "pink" Hughes 300 helicopter -- the engine was stalling in mid-air and she had to keep restarting it, while delivering the traffic reports to all the radio listeners. The helicopter maintainers thought she was a ditsy woman pilot, until one day they found the engine fault and repaired it. She's a Top Gun!
