Sample Text:

Interviewer:    Good afternoon! And you must be King Alfred

Alfred:             The Great! Please don’t forget that bit!

Interviewer:    The only one of our kings to have that title

Alfred:             And well deserved, may I add!

Interviewer:    To be sure!

(Aside) Though why he needs to keep reminding me …

Alfred:             So, as your memory did have that slight falter, shall I help you

Interviewer:    Remember how great you were?

Alfred:             Oh, that would be a little presumptuous. I’ll just settle for why I was Great!

Interviewer:    (Aside) Amazing how little some egos need in the way of encouragement!

Very well. Let’s hear it.

Alfred:             Maybe we should start with my scholarly skills.

Interviewer:    Yes, I have heard you were quite the student!

Alfred:             And I made sure everyone else benefitted from my knowledge – all that Latin in our books turned into something we could understand!

Interviewer:    So, wait a minute. Before we get totally stuck into what made you great

Alfred:             I can’t wait!
