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.

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).

Paid another visit to Birmingham’s Blue Orange Theatre on Tuesday, to film an interview with Tina Hofman, director of the Theatre’s production of Lady Chatterley’s Lover, plus cast members Abi Castleton (Connie Chatterley) and Marcus Fernando (Oliver Mellors). As usual, Chrissie Harper shot the raw footage and will be handling the final edit.
The week-long in-house run began Thursday night, then it’s off on a month’s UK tour. Looking forward to catching a performance early next week.
