A fabulous, not to be missed, BBC Radio Drama
Listen this morning and only for a week – the wonderfully evocative, visual radio drama – so good you can smell The Plague in the air.
Laugh out loud.
Soon to be a movie?
But nothing will beat the radio version (ditto ‘The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy)
10.45am BBC Radio 4
Then on iPlayer for a week
I used this character very successfully in France when developing my freelancing directing career.
‘J’ai la tete du Travail’ was the expression I used, ‘the head for the job’. I went on to work across the country for the French Ministry of Culture visiting every corner of the country, to work on a Saturday Night Variety Show, the haute couture and pret a porter fashion shows (video and vision mixing the live events) and agency work for international broadcasters.
I’ve forgotten a few, not least the ones that got me started here:
- As an ice-breaker (introducing ourselves by way of holiday snaps and pets … not to be recommened for setting the appropropriate tone).
- Reflection (and learning how to do this correctly).
- Stream of consciousness
- A Writer’s Journal
- As an e-portfolio
So I’ve missed out some important ones 🙁
WordPress now lets you know ‘where’ people are viewing you from. The Seychelles and Singapore are top of my hit list today. What have I said? Who are you? Why? Please provide guidance. Better still, invite me over I love to talk and can entertain 100+ for 90 minutes.
I’ve printed of the Assignment Guide ahead of putting TMA 1 togethe
Until now I’ve baulked at the cost of printer ink … indeed I ‘ve only had ink for the last week anyway.
It wasn’t just that, with no shelves up and stacks of files I have been finding that anything that does get printed off gets lost.
So it gets filed offline & backed up.
In the last 24 hours I have been telescoped back to 1982 and my many adventures at university. I had a video production ‘business’ called Last Stand Video. I have a dozen Betamax tapes from this period which I have been meaning to transfer for decades. I will now see if I can view & log them, then transfer (i.e digitise) the juiciest bits.
There’s a copy of production of Romeo & Juliet in which I played Mercutio. During this particular fight with Tibalt the nappy-pin holding up my pantaloons broke so I cutched them as well as my ‘wound’ as I died to hysterical laughter on the marble floor of Magdalen Chapel.
The Year My Voice Broke 1987
I remain fascinated by good ‘coming of age,’ teenage rom-com dramas.
