ITV's Jeff Pope: 'Crime was my entree into drama'

2 September 2012 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The executive producer of Mrs Biggs reveals the inspiration behind TV drama hits such as Mo and Appropriate Adult

Jeff Pope, the writer of Mrs Biggs, the Ronnie Biggs drama that starts on ITV on Wednesday, is clear about what gets him up in the morning. "My thrill comes from a true story. That is my drug."

As the head of ITV factual drama, Pope has overseen a string of outstanding shows: most recently Appropriate Adult, about Fred West and his manipulative relationship with the prison visitor Janet Leach, which won Bafta and Royal Television Society acting awards this year for Dominic West, Emily Watson and Monica Dolan.

He was also the executive producer of Mo, a docudrama about Mo Mowlam from 1997 to her early death from cancer in 2005, which was made for Channel 4 in 2010 after ITV turned it down. Yet although he's among television's most respected and successful writer/producers, »

Opening Film - The Seasoning House (World Premiere)

Special make-up prosthetics and splatter genius Paul Hyett makes his directorial debut with a harrowing exploration into tense claustrophobia, hard-hitting action and rollercoaster suspense. In a Balkan brothel, where girls kidnapped by soldiers in war-torn zones are prostituted to the military and civilians alike, Angel (Robin Day) is the deaf mute orphan enslaved to care for the inmates. But unbeknownst to her captors, she moves between the walls and crawlspaces of the seasoning house planning her escape. Psychological horror in the nerve-shredding Alfred Hitchcock and Roman Polanski style but with an ultra-modern twist.

89 mins Director: Paul Hyett UK 2012

Bafta TV special/Julie Walters: Queen of the screen

19 May 2012 4:09 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

She's won more Baftas than any other actress. Here, Julie Walters tells Euan Ferguson about her hippy years, life in the country and why it's never been a better time to be a woman on TV

Other multiple Bafta- and Emmy-winning actresses might have flung toys from the pram, or at least raised a manicured eyebrow. The restaurant at the photo studio had courteously but undeniably told her they'd run out of basically everything she might have wanted. Julie Walters smiled and forgave, and smiled again, and pretended to enjoy choosing the remaining dreadful rabbit-food option. Then, out of the waiter's sight, laughed like a drain when I suggested she'd have had better luck choosing from the other (blank) side of the menu; then turned down my offer of a cup of coffee instead because, "No, I'd talk you to death if I had a cup of coffee."

New Trailer and Clip for Pixar’s Brave

24 April 2012 7:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The full trailer for Pixar's Brave has gone online along with a new clip.  The past trailers have tried to blend the comic and dramatic sides of the film, and done so with varying levels of success.  The latest trailer puts up a clear wall between the two, showing off the amusing antics of the protagonist Princess Merida's family (I love her father's impression of his daughter) and then making a jarring, abrupt cut to the dramatic, mystical side of the adventure where Merida makes a wish to change her fate of being married off to another clan and losing her freedom.  The first half of the trailer made laugh, and the second half gave me chills (I love the use of Julie Fowlis' "Tha Mo Ghaol Air Aird A’ Chuain"), but I'm still looking for the connective tissue that will bring the two tones together.

‘Brave’ Goes Gaelic In Promising First TV Spot

27 February 2012 9:14 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

I haven’t been too hot on the next from Pixar (or the last, for that matter), but things are starting to look up. Following the release of a scene last week, we’ve got the first TV spot for Brave. Airing during the Academy Awards (why don’t more studios debut footage there?), it features new footage feature a locale you see above and a snowy mountain, which hints at more adventure than we thought. Perhaps most enticing is the choice of music here, Julie Fowlis‘ gaelic song Tha Mo Ghaol Air Aird A’ Chuain. It is perfectly fitting here and you can see the spot below along with a live performance of the song.

Synopsis:

Brave is set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, where Merida is the princess of a kingdom ruled by King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). An unruly daughter and an accomplished archer, »
