Watch tThe National on CBC tonight for my interview about the mystery of Jerome! [Sep. 1st, 2006|07:13 pm]
Acadiens de partout.


[Current Location |Wolfvillw NS]

Hard to believe it, but the interview the CBC did with me is supposed to be on The National tonight! :-) It would be sometime between 10-11:00 pm, unless something major happens in the world in the next few hours and it gets bumped to Monday night.

It's an interview with Tom Murphy from the CBC about the mystery of Jerome and the project I am working on with Caroline-Isabelle Caron under the umbrella of University of Victoria's "Great Unsolved Mysteries In Canadian History"!!!!! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I hope it turned out ok. I can't wait to see it. They filmed my interview next to the cemetary where Jerome is buried. There should be 2 others from Clare as well (Denis Comeau and Jocelyne Comeau) as well as interesting shots of the area and of 3 houses where Jerome lived. Plus scenes of the beach at Sandy Cove where he was found in 1863 and of 'Jerome's Rock'!

Got to go buy a blank VCR tape! I'm tired though. This morning, I was interviewed by the Courrier newspaper and if all goes well, it is going to be a 2-part article in the next two issues. I'm very, very pleased with the way the press has latched onto Jerome's story and I only hope that this will lead to more people coming forward with information about him and of course about Cy a Mateur!

Une p'tite geurlaise de Meteghan Centre su' The National, tchisqu'arait cru?!. And Jerome on The National. Who woulda thunk it!

Haha, I forgot to describe myself. Well, I was the one referred to as a folklorist or researcher on the Jerome project, I am not sure now how it was worded (they edited so much of what I had said). The host referred to me by name - Lise Robichaud, and I'm the one in the cream-colored blazer that he interviewed walking along the cemetary. Later, I'm the one who talked about how every Sunday, Jerome was visited by people who wanted to catch a glimpse of the mystery man. Glad you were interested in it!

Re: Hi!

Ah, yes, I remember you! Great interview =)
What is your job exactly? It sounds really interesting. You do research on Acadian history?

I almost missed it. I just happened to tune into the news just as the report came up. They said that some people were disillusioned by the 'truth' about Jerome, but I thought it was really interesting, and sad in a way.

Yeah, I'm Lise Robichaud, the researcher he interviews by the cemetary. I'm the one who said it was like telling an 8 year old that Santa Claus doesn't exist and also later how people came to the house to visit Jerome every Sunday to catch a glimpse of the mystery man. Jerome had a hard life, but the truth is just as interesting as the legend.
