Wow, fabulous! Thanks John. What on Earth is 'Cotswold TV'? I've told my American friends several times that we don't have local TV in the UK because it's so small geographically (not counting the regional BBC and ITV transmissions which 90% of the time broadcast the same programmes). The closest we get is S4C. Yet this video of Mary-Jess is on the Gloucester channel of Cotswold TV. Is it an internet channel I wonder, or a cable network. I haven't a clue about anything to do with cable. All my TV comes over the air and down the aerial via Freeview and there's still too many programmes I'd like to see in a 24hr day. However, if there's any more Mary-Jess on then I'll be trying to find this network lol!
I found out a bit more about the event. It was a county-wide talent contest, the finals of which were held in Gloucester on 17th December 2011. Mary-Jess (as a professional singer) was not eligible to compete, but was invited to perform as a guest artist. She is after all a prime example of Gloucestershire's talent.
I discovered the video when the link was posted on Mary-Jess's facebook wall by (I think) one of the contestants in the competition. There are videos of some of the other finalists on the same website. Mary-Jess replied that she didn't even know it had been filmed.
As to what is Cotswold TV, your guess is as good as mine, Nigel. I had assumed it was an internet channel but I don't actually know. Please let us know if you find any more of Mary-Jess there.
On a more hopeful note, Mary-Jess has promised more details "in the next few days" about her forthcoming performances in London on 29th January and 9th February. I will post updates in the relevant threads as soon as I hear anything.
