I'm delighted to say TOMMIES shared the 2015 Audio Awards' "Outstanding Contribution to Diversity" Award with BBC Radio 1Xtra. This is a wonderful to win and the Tommies cast, crew and productions teams deserve it. Congratulations!
As you can see, the actual award is a slate from the roof of the old Broadcasting House.
And the bunch below are the ones lucky enough to be there on the night to get the award, (l to r) Caleb Knightley, sound design, director Nandita Ghose, actor Danny Rahim who plays Ahmadullah, and me.
And I couldn't be more proud than to have had the opportunity to donate my WW1 shell recordings for use in this new film on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website. I've felt over the years I owe them a huge debt for the work they do, and to be able to contribute my little bit is a rare privilege.
We've just transmitted the spring 1918 series of TOMMIES set in France, Flanders and Italy. Episodes are written by Avin Shah, Nick Warburton, and freshly joined Neil Brand (and myself). Joining us for this next series is Pat Cumper. We'll be in France for the build-up to Amiens, Transcaspia and with the Doughboys near Verdun.
Revisting my old days as a radio reporter I went over on the Eurostar to work with Nord Tourisme on the new Flesquieres Museum holding D51 Deborah.
Here's the report I did for PM on Radio 4, presenter Rebecca Jones. Don't look for any particular synergy between picture and words, I was quickly shooting on my phone and thought you might prefer to see it unedited rather than wait for me to tweak it.
