The latest of my reports for Made in Birmingham TV aired Saturday evening. the first half of a discussion with local rock musician Joe Dempster, whose band The Bloodthirsters has since supplied the theme tune for the first of Chrissie Harper’s and my Club Vamporama minisodes.
Other recent contributions to Birmingham News Weekend Magazine have featured Vamos Theatre (whose performers wear full-face masks), the producer and director of Worcester-based crime thriller Artichoke, performance duo notnow Collective, Birmingham-based space artist David A Hardy, Birmingham CAMRA chair Sally Lavender and award-winning licensee Brendon Daly (whose pub has already served as an ad hoc studio on three occasions). The majority are now available to view on our YouTube channel.

I’ve become somewhat of a regular fixture on Made in Birmingham TV of late, and Saturday saw my fifth report in a row for Birmingham News Weekend Magazine. The first two focussed upon the recent Blue Orange Theatre production of Lady Chatterley’s Lover, the next two featured extracts from Adam Nevill’s appearance at the Birmingham Horror Group, and the latest concerned a local pub being honoured by Birmingham CAMRA. In due course, all five will be available via YouTube.

Had a rather busy Saturday. Even as I was driving into Birmingham for the latest gathering of the Birmingham Horror Group at the Gunmakers Arms, Lee Bannister was introducing Chrissie’s and my report from the Blue Orange Theatre for Made in Birmingham TV’s Birmingham News Weekend Magazine.
Shortly afterwards, I was on stage with author Adam Nevill, discussing his influences, his new novel Under a Watchful Eye (a terrific read, by the way) and the impending movie adaptation of The Ritual, which had only been announced two days earlier. The conversation was filmed for use on two separate Made in Birmingham TV shows, the general material for Lee and the film-related footage for his colleague Carl Jones’ daily cinema slot. In addition, the interview will be transcribed for a forthcoming issue of the magazine Fear.

The first of Chrissie’s and my reports from the Blue Orange Theatre on its latest production of Lady Chatterley’s Lover aired on Saturday, as part of Made in Birmingham TV’s Birmingham News Weekend Magazine. To my surprise, presenter Lee Bannister announced the second will be broadcast next weekend (I’d expected it to be held back until 18 February).
Above, you can see me in conversation with the play’s director, Tina Hofman; in the follow-up, I talk to actors Abi Castleton (Connie Chatterley) and Marcus Fernando (Oliver Mellors).

A couple of images from Sunday’s interviews at Leicester’s Grindhouse Planet Film Festival, featuring organiser Marc Hamill and award-winner Liam Banks. Meanwhile, Marc announced today that he’s already taking submissions for the 2017 event. Great to hear it was such a success.
Update: The interview with Marc aired on 10 December as part of both Birmingham News Weekend Magazine and The Birmingham Lowdown: Best Bits.
