At the Royal Aeronautical Society’s 30 June 2009 space tourism conference EADS Astrium’s deputy chief technical officer Hugues Laporte-Weywada and Virgin Galactic president Will Whitehorn answered the audiences questions after each giving presentations

Go here to download the audio of that Q&A. While I was not allowed to make a video or audio recording of the actual presentations, because audio recordings are supplied to conference attendees with the proceedings, I was told that the question and answer sessions were not included in the post-conference package
