A year ago, we told you about a surprising discovery made by Paulette Cooper when she was looking through Patty Moher's collection of Scientology materials during a gathering at Patty's house in Connecticut — Paulette stumbled on a pamphlet put out by the church in 1969 that featured an interview with a 7-year-old Neil Gaiman.

The interview was a transcript of a 1968 BBC radio show which featured the young Gaiman, who had been kicked out of a school because of his family's affiliation with Scientology. A year later, the church included the transcript in a political pamphlet because Scientology was under attack in Parliament, and the young Neil made such a fine example of a budding member of the organization.

At the time, we hoped someone at the BBC could track down the original audio of Neil's interview, and we asked again in June, when Neil's new book, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, was published.
