Listening text A True Story
It is Thursday and Greg has just come home from a radio interview on the “Today” programme. He is talking to his wife, Susan. Part 1 S: Hello. I heard you _o_n_t_h_e_r_a_d_i_o_ and it
all seemed to go very well. G: Yes, it did as soon as we got started.
But I had __a__b_a_d_t_im__e___ before they phoned me.
S: Why? I thought you’d fixed it all up yesterday?
G: Yes, I did. You remember I told you that they didn’t want to phone me at home because _th_e__s_o_u_n_d_e_f_fe_c_t_s were better at the BBC radio station here in Reading.
S: Yes, I remember.
G: Well, I arrived at the building before 6 am. They were going to ring me at 6:15 to check it all was well.

was nobody waiting for me to let me into the building. It had many windows but they were all dark. They _r_e_m__in_d__ed__m__e_o_f_ large, tired eyes. S: Oh, dear!
Part 2 G: The building was so tall and old. S: Did you feel frightened? G: No. But I did get worried. I
wondered if I’d got the right day or the right time and place. S: Did you ring the bell?
G: Yes, I did. It sounded very loud and echoed through the empty rooms. I felt _e_v_e_n_w__o_r_se_. I was sure I must’ve got things wrong.
S: But you hadn’t. I heard you on the radio.
G: Luckily just at that moment a man __a_p_p_e_a_r_ed__ and opened the studio for me.
As soon as I entered the room the telephone rang. It was the interview from the “Today” programme. S: So all’s well that ends well? G: Yes, thank goodness. Never was I so relieved to see anyone. I really thought I was going to miss the programme. But once I was on the air everything was fine.

Searching for the truth
As a news reporter, one has to make sure that the story is true. Otherwise, the writer will be accused of guilty. As a reader, one also has to find out whether the story is true. So no matter what you are, you have to find out the truth. How can we find the truth?

Answer the questions. 1. Where does the best information come
those who were there at the time.
2. What are primary sources? the writings of the people who lived there.
3. What are secondary sources? the writings of people at a much later date who write about the same events.

Remember dates are very important. Tick the correct boxes. Then think which of them will have fewer facts and more opinions. Give a reason.
