An Interview with Brandy White
Interviewer: His beard is insured for a six-figure sum and the plates on his red Mercedes read
SANTA. Today we meet Brady White, Father Christmas to Hollywood’s rich and famous.
How did you become Santa to the stars?
Brady White: About 20 years ago, I was an out-of-work actor and nine months behind with
the rent, so I took a seasonal job as Santa at a shopping mall in Beverly Hills. The Los
Angeles Times voted me the best Santa Claus in Southern California and word spread from
Interviewer: Who was the first celebrity you met?
Brady White: Imelda Marcos asked me to hand out gifts at her Christmas party. Most of
them were gold bracelets, earrings, rings and necklaces, but there was also a miniature Ferrari
car for children.
Interviewer: Who’s your favourite celebrity?
Brady White: Kirstie Alley invites me to her home for her kids. She’s one of the best mums
I know – a real down-to-earth sort. And Sylvester Stallone and his wife, Jennifer Flavin, have
three young daughters who I see each year – they’re very nice, regular, unspoiled children.
Interviewer: Which party will you never forget?
Brady White: It was the songwriter Burt Bacharach’s party. As always, my job was to go
into the house ho-ho-ho-ing and give presents to the guests, but afterwards Burt invited me to
stay to dinner. I took off my coat and was in the kitchen dressed in my white T-shirt and red
braces when Elizabeth Taylor came in and sat beside me. She said: “You’re the best Santa
I’ve ever met, because you remind me of what I thought Santa looked like when I was a little
Interviewer: And the most extravagant party?
Brady White: I’ve been to many such parties in Hollywood where there is truckloads of
snow in the garden, champagne and mountains of caviar. But two years ago, I did a party for
a major film producer. Not only did he have the winter wonderland in the garden but he even
had a reindeer which had been sent from Lapland.
Interviewer: What do you do on Christmas Day?
Brady White: I’m always at The Beverly Hills Hotel. I have my Christmas lunch there.
Interviewer: What do you do when Christmas is over?
Brady White: It never is! I work all year round as Santa. After I’ve been down all those
chimneys, I do a lot of modelling for catalogues and TV commercials.
Interviewer: Are you recognised when you’re not dressed in your red suit?
Brady White: Yes, I can be wearing regular clothes and a truck driver or a policeman will
say, “Yo, Santa, I want a motorcycle.”
Interviewer: Thanks for coming and don’t forget to come down my chimney next Christmas.

Plastic carrier bags
Sally:Are you one of those people who couldn't live without plastic carrier bags? If so, do you ever think about the effect they might be having on the environment? I went along to environmentalist John Croft to find out what's happening on the plastic carrier bag scene at the moment. John, I think you might just have some good news for us. Is that not the case?
John: It most certainly is, Sally. It seems that the end of the mostpotentially wasteful product of the 20th century may come sooner than
expected.World production of plastic bags is at the highest level ever, but an additive developed in Britain is said to be reducing their lifespan from decades to a predetermined shorter time.
S: So how exactly is all this going to come about?
J:Well, it's a quiet revolution at the moment — it's certainly not something you hear customers discussing in the checkout queues! But four of the five big supermarket chains, which together hand out up to 10 billion plastic bags each year, have conducted trials and have now partly or wholly switched to using degradable bags. In addition, they offer replacement bags for customers who recycle those they were given previously.
S:And is producing these degradable bags a relatively simple process? J: Not exactly. But it works like this.They use an additive known as D2W.The bags become brittle when exposed to air and then decompose into water and carbon dioxide.This means that flexible plastic can self-destruct in just two months. So, as you can imagine, the news has been welcomed by some local authorities, and waste and food industries, which are under pressure from the government to reduce plastic packaging and litter. Britain alone throws out almost a million tonnes of plastic waste a year, much of which ends up on landfill sites after being used for only a few days.
S: So does this mean that we can look forward to this happening with other types of packaging, too?
J:Absolutely. Materials with the shortest lives -such as bread bags, stretch film, and direct mailing — are all moving this way.
S: But not everyone is happy with what's happening, are they, John?
J:That's true. Some people argue that this is a technology being developed so that we do not have to change our behaviour.They say it's not a long-term solution to managing waste properly. They also argue that degradable plastic won't decompose properly in waste tips, and this could lead to an increase in greenhouse gasses, which in turn contribute to global warming.
S:And what's your view?
J: I have great hopes for the biodegradable bags and I think they might go a long way to solving the present problems.
S:Thanks for that.John
1. According to John Croft, during the last century the plastic bag
Was one of the most dangerous inventions
Became more widespread than most other product
Reached its peak of production
Took years to perfect when it was invented
2. John implies that recent research by supermarket chains has
Largely go unnoticed
Led to the increase in the number of shopping bags
Been discussed a lot by customers.
Resulted in customer providing their own shopping bags
3. A new process being tested at the moment
involves a substance which makes the plastic in bags softer
ensures that tough plastic breaks up quickly.
Means that the lifespan of plastic bags is much shorter.
Consist of a simple method of disposing of flexible plastic
4. Much of the plastic waste produced in Britain
is produced by the food industry.
is thrown away in the form of litter.
has a life of about two months.
finds its way to landfill sites.
5. Critics of the new technology insist that
it will not encourage people to manage waste effectively
it will result in a huge rise in plastic waste.
There aren’t enough waste tips to deal with the problem.
Greenhouse gasses may decrease but global warming will not.
