    Thai TV show needs foreign interviewees

    Hello everyone! This is my first post here (sorry if I missed the section for newbies to post, I'll get that later if need be). I am producing a show about tourism for UBC and I would like to interview foreigners who live in or have a second home in Thailand.

    I am especially looking to interview foreigners in Thai, for those of you who speak Thai, but some interviews will also be conducted in English. The interview will cover things like what it's like for you living here, why you came to Thailand, what you've been doing, how you spend free time, your favorite Thai food, etc. It will also be a chance for your business, if you have one, to get some free promotion, and you'll get to see yourself on TV too!

    If anyone has any interest please PM or e-mail me with this information:
    name, age, gender, nationality
    province you live in
    your occupation
    level of fluency in Thai language
    your e-mail address/contact info
    and any additional info you'd like to share (not required)

    Thanks a ton to all those of you who respond or pass this info along to someone you think may be interested! My team and I look forward to meeting you!

    Perhaps it would have been nice to include some info about yourself as well...

    like your name & nationality for starters...

    might make people a little more trusting before they divulge all that personal info that you require...

    Real nice... okay, so don't include your name in your response, I didn't even ask for your surname... or anything that seems all too personal... you can call me "John with the UBC show". And because there are no spammers that harvest publicly posted e-mail addresses, mine is... And it's a UBC show... so I'm paying a million bucks with a side of fries to anyone who wants to promote their own business for free on my show. Nice warm reception I got here... please, if anyone is interested, do respond. If not, no need to be mean, just don't reply. Thanks.

    We're nice to newbies in the Newbies forum.

    Actually this is a forum where you will be asked questions if folks feel the need. You're welcome to post here and I wish you success. But with your initial post and the evasive response to some germane questions?

    You've got some long-time residents here; newbies are folks with less than 5 years. If you're serious this place would be great resource. You might want to give more of yourself before expecting people to raise their own hands and volunteer any personal information; publicly or in private.

    If not? Welcome to the board; enjoy.

    I think the interviews are a great idea, "Deutsche Welle" did something similar, 15 minutes slots of German expats living in Asian countries.
    I don't mean to sound negative, but I'm also hesitant, I mean, anyone could just post a request as a hoax.

    Anyway, welcome, ThaiTours!

    I appreciate the support Stroller, I'm obviously hoping that it is a great idea too, and I understand your hesitance. I might just be here trying to get farangs to buy jewelry and video cameras, I know, I know. But I think anyone who contacts me, within a couple e-mail exchanges or phone calls, will clearly see that I am really doing a new Thai satellite TV show, out of my own somewhat shallow pocket until it's on air and I can get a little bit of commercial sponsorship, and would genuinely appreciate anyone who could offer a little help in exchange for some free promotion or just to have fun.

    Unfortunately I can't offer an abundance of details without first talking to someone because the way the interview is conducted and filmed will depend entirely on whatever conversations we have prior to that. I could talk about the interview in general terms, but that could take forever and could leave me answering countless questions when I'd rather be engaged in a 2-way conversation.


    In fact, even if people would just reply with such and such a bar or website or bar's website is a good place to find expats in such and such province, that might just be really helpful to me. Know a guesthouse where the owner is well connected to the expat community? Think he/she might want some free advertisement on a travel show?


    Thanks again to anyone who would like to help.

    Thanks dirtydog, but no thanks. Your sarcasm is neither poignant nor funny, and I much prefer my own. I see you're also accusing me of not doing stuff I suggested you don't do either. Umm, guilty as charged? Well to be fair, only half guilty on the first of those two counts. I actually did include my name in my response. But I'll give you that half a point for effort because I know what you meant to say even though it didn't come out that way. Are all the farangs living here really so angry that harassment should be more forthcoming than offers of reciprocal help? Since no-one has responded, this time I'll just thank the silent ambivilant majority for not
    hindering me in anyway, and although I no longer expect to find any interviewees here, I certainly hope you all watch and enjoy the show!

    wouldn't that be a 2 way conversation, ie they are asking questions and you are answering them, maybe I am wrong and thats why I haven't attained the great heights of being an English Language Teacher.

    Also you being a tv person and all that you must have a website, now if you got a website you could set up an email like, dirtyfokingsexpats@ubc.com and then trash it once you have the people to tell you how downright perverted they are and how they come to thailand for cheap perverse sex, I should add that memock does not come to Thailand for dirty perverse sex, he is a christian, so he might be a good one to interview, all the rest of the posters are probably just sexpats unfortuneately so all you will get out of them is there favourite places for cheap dirty perverse sex, that aint the stuff for a nice family programe about visiting thailand

    You forgot drug-tourists like mad_dog.
    Actually, I think that would be a great angle: sex-starved British council estate addict teaches English to 14-year old Thai girls.

    Looks like ThaiTours is making friends an influencing people. Yep, think I wanna help him out and offer up my experiences living here, maybe even do some of his work for him (help him) and find him some interesting people to interview (expose?).

    I've seen alot of folks come on this board and get some real help, then soe folks just don't have people skills.

    Or even a page where folks could fill in a form? show a little legitimacy.

    Yeah but I'm not in Thailand at the moment sorry

    Thai tours - ignore the sarcasm that has been thrown your way - however I don't blame them at all really.

    I get contacted about 4 times a year from various production companies from around the world wanting to do documentarys. (not about me of course but about the area I live and I am a bit of a first contact for this area), they genearlly always send an email and tell me who they are, their company, website, email address, phone number etc etc. That way I can feel confident they are the real thing and don't mind spending some time with them giving them the infomation that they need.

    Good luck with the project. I would have loved to be involved as I am a media whore but for the first time in 5 years have come to NZ for holidays instead.
    News is what someone, somewhere is trying to suppress - everything else is just advertising.

    And yet, despite being told numerous times to the contrary, he still insists that cunnilingus is Thai dialect

    Aren't you a stuckup little bitch ?

    are you British ?

    PS: Have you tried ThaiVisa.com ? it's a successful Thai expat sites where the elite of Thai expats like to hang around. Give them a try.

    This is almost identical to the line used by some pommy sleaze TV channel 3-4 years ago running some sting operation to extend their funding and improve their ratings...and then you wonder why people here slag you off..

    Can you ask them to not employ a monkey to schedule the programmes when you're next there, Klongy?

    Also, the monkey who blanks out the adverts (only to be replaced for an advert from Concordian School) during the footy is always falling asleep on the job. Maybe they can put something in his bananas to perk him up a bit?

    "ambivilant" - that's a new English word for me. I keep humbly learning, but my English/German dictionary doesn't list it.
    What does it mean?

    ^^MM: think you missed the point old chap
    Find translations Search all dictionaries Sorry, no dictionaries indexed in the selected category contain the word ambivilant.
    guess he meant 'ambivalent'
