The request for the interview was made to the Bob Marley Foundation, and was part of a series of requests to artists for a show on radio channel BBC3.

The BBC requested the interview by e-mail with a standard text. This e-mail was sent to hundreds of receivers. According to the BBC the Bob Marley Foundation had a pretty good laugh, but the channel apologized nevertheless.
