Probably not much to learn for people on Proz, but interesting all the same and may raise some awareness of certain issues!
The programme lasts half an hour and you can listen online for the next few days here:

I posted this also, sorry. I'm not an interpreter and don't subscribe to this forum, so forgot to think that someone else might have beaten me to it.

About "Word to Mouth"-programme May 3, 2012

Interesting and about the essentials from the process of interpreting; it's far more complicated than mere words would imply and really as psyche attaced as the document tells it to be. None of the factors having their impact on the outcome of interpretation brought out in the programme shouldn't be ignored.

"Duh" myself May 4, 2012

Lesley, I didn't see your post! Maybe mine was being "moderated" when you posted?
I'm an occasional interpreter for the court in France, but didn't know all that much about the situation in the UK. Thanks Parrot for the link.
