Aoife goes to Salzburg with BBC1
2nd Oct 08
Last week I was asked to present a piece for BBC Breakfast which involved taking a trip to Salzburg to stay in the original Von Trapp family home, which has been turned into a hotel. What a thrill!! It’s a huge 14 bed manor full of pictures of the original Von Trapp family. The house includes a chapel and you can even get married there if you wish - something that the hard core Sound of Music fans will love! I learned that there were a few differences between the Hollywood film and the true story. For example, maria was a tutor not a novice nun and they didn’t escape over the mountains to Switzerland, they simply got a train!
The piece for BBC Breakfast will be shown the week of 6th of October.
