Why don’t you just accept that you were in the wrong, tell her you accept that, and
that’ll be the end of it. I mean, you’re just so stubborn, aren’t you, you just can’t see that
you’re not always right. Come on, why not change the habits of a lifetime for once and
tell her that you shouldn’t have said what you said? It’s not that difficult you know, and
it’ll really do some good.

Man:
Has the flight from Zurich arrived yet?
Assistant:
Yes, about half an hour ago.
Man:
The one that stops here and then goes on to Hong Kong?
Assistant: Yes.
Man:
Oh dear, I’ve been waiting in the wrong place. Have all the passengers been
through yet?
Assistant:
I should think so.
Man:
Oh no, they’ve probably given up and gone. Is there any way you could put out a
message in case they’re still here?

Welcome to the programme. In this series we’ve looked at the latest goods on the
market in the world of food, and we’ve looked in depth at what to eat if you want to stay
fit and well. Today we look at how much the advertising of new products influences
what we eat, and how much attention people pay to advice about healthy eating. I can
promise you there are some surprising statistics coming up...
Part 2
You will hear a talk given to a class by a young woman, in which she talks about her
career so far as an actress and director. For questions 9-18, fill in the missing
information.
What made me want to be a performer? Perhaps it’s in the blood - I’m the great grand-
daughter of an opera singer. I set my sights on the stage at an early age. Ballet was my
first love but I grew too tall and so my ambition switched to acting. I took part in as
many school productions as I could and I ended up studying Theatre Studies at
university. Four years ago, I left university, having secured a place on an acting course
at a drama school in London.
The course was just for one year, a year which I had to finance myself. I hadn’t lived in
London before - I come from a small seaside town - so it was quite a culture shock.
Having to find the money was a strain - it was quite an expensive course - and I also had
great difficulty finding somewhere to live that I could afford in London. Eventually, I
managed to rent a flat with a couple of other students on the course. I found the first few
weeks of the course really stressful and tiring but a few weeks on, I really got into it. It
boosted my confidence and it was much more on the practical side - we only had to do
one theory thing.
When the course ended I was one of 565 students to graduate from a recognized drama
course that summer. I was fortunate enough to get a job straight away with a theatre
company outside London, working in Drama in Education. We went to lots of schools
and I really enjoyed it. After that I went back to London and it was really hard, because
