Personal Quotes (4)

[on the closure of Television Centre in 2013] The Corporation claimed changes in technology had rendered many of TV Centre's functions obsolete. For instance, suspicious old men now largely meet children using the Internet.
Newspapers chiefly exist to spoon-feed the opinions of their readers back to them, much like an arse-to-mouth hosepipe.
TV can't get enough of Nigel Farage because he adds a bit of colour, which is ironic considering what he represents.
[on writing advice] Read 'On Writing' by Stephen King and 'On Film-Making' by Alexander Mackendrick. Just try to power through the first draft. it'll be shit, you can rewrite it later (you WILL rewrite it later). Try Scrivener. Once you know what the story line is, write the first draft standing up. You waste less time because it's slightly uncomfortable. Probably loads of other advice but that's off the top of me head.
