I am writing to you to check your availability the weekend of August 24-26th.
It would be fantastic if you might be available at some point that weekend (most likely the Sunday) to take part in this year’s MediaGuardian Edinburgh International TV Festival. We were hoping you will be free in principle for a high-profile session we intend to put on titled “The Power of Gossip.” This session which will involve panellists including the author of the websites/mailouts “holymoly” and Adam Bullmore of October Films – will entail discussing the power of blogs and the internet and will question whether TV will ever be able to produce gossip as successfully.
It would not be a problem to arrange your participation behind a screen of sorts if you wish to protect your identity.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
With best wishes
