...another camera. And there have been a lot of them this week.
This morning after recording a piece on video about Higher Education for an educational website I was interviewed for a short film on the learning of Chinese language and culture.
The Hanban, which promotes Chinese language and culture abroad is a key partner for the Scottish Government in establishing Confucius Hubs and classrooms across the country. They provide resources and teachers and they are also good hosts for Scottish pupils.
The world's best Confucius Classroom, as they are known, is St Ninian's High in East Renfrewshire, and that is an official accolade they won in Beijing last year. Now each of the countries in the scheme is making a short film to contribute to a world wide project and the Scottish producers asked me to say a few words for our one.
I was interviewed by Kate Rankin, a sixth year pupil at Strathaven High who has been on a short study course in China. The production is being put together by Mark Pentleton of Radio Lingua.
They were both very helpful and they seemed to enjoy being in the Parliament's Garden Lobby,
Later on I met a group of post graduate PR students from Stirling University and then spoke to some pupils from Glasgow all of whom were very interested in education and the referendum.
