I’ve known Alan Jones since the early 1990s, when I was first freelancing (including a monthly column for The Dark Side and regular appearances in SFX) and he was writing for a number of film magazines, including Shivers. I interviewed him in October 2016, at the aptly-titled London hostelry The Bleeding Heart Tavern. A clip from our conversation aired on the Halloween edition of Big Centre TV’s film programme The Big Picture (see here); sadly, this was the channel’s final day, before it was swallowed up by the inferior Made TV).

Rose of Eibon’s YouTube channel has been extensively updated recently, and now includes all five of my appearances on Big Centre TV’s The Big Picture: my debut on 22 July, in conversation with presenter Carl Jones; my and Chrissie Harper’s reports for the show, filmed at Birmingham’s Mockingbird Theatre (27 September), Blue Orange Theatre (18 October), Flatpack Film Festival (11 October) and, down at London’s Bleeding Heart Tavern, an extract from my lengthy chat with FrightFest organiser Alan Jones (31 October).
