The Iron Man

I recently got the opportunity to film the Graeae Theatre Company.   With a reputation for innovation I’d always wanted to see one of their productions.  They’re currently touring ‘The Iron Man,’ as part of the ‘Without Walls’ summer festival programme. http://www.withoutwalls.uk.com/ Set up as a platform for deaf and disabled

My Favourite Things – Part I

  The wonderful Moseley Bog has recently received Heritage funding to improve access for all.  At first I was a little concerned that the new walkways had elevated us above nature. Effectively stopping us having to really engage with it and preventing us getting our boots dirty. Well worn ‘desire

‘Stargazing’ Left Me in The Dark

Stargazing Live, BBC 1. That icon of Astronomy, Sir Patrick Moore, has dominated our screens for over half a century with ‘The Sky at Night’.  It’s been a long time coming, but the BBC eventually discovered a new star, in the shape of Professor Brian Cox. A Physicist, with looks,

Is TV guilty of dishing up nutrient-low, unsatisfying portions ?

As the New Year starts, and we turn to thoughts of diets, the realization dawns that there is only so much junk we can take.  We need some sustenance! I’ve been avidly keeping my eye on 2011 TV schedule and as yet nothing they’ve dished up has tempted me. Not
