Tommies News

Really going back in time now, but I'm still delighted to say TOMMIES shared the 2015 Audio Awards' "Outstanding Contribution to Diversity" Award with BBC Radio 1Xtra. This was 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 2016 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.

It says something for the impact of Peter Jackson's new film THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD that so many people have sat through the end credits. Some of them have got in touch to ask the quite reasonable question, why is my name there?

Another recent film I've been involved in has been November 2018's STANLEY's WAR, a Tim Curtis film for which I wrote the screenplay, and indeed appear in to an alarming degree.  This was another privelege to work on: I will keep you updated on its future as a DVD.

The Guardian website had nice things to say about HOMEFRONT and TOMMIES: I don't know how long the link will hold up, but you can read about both shows here.

What else? I've mentioned elsewhere that you can buy the whole 42 episode series of TOMMIES from Amazon but I don't think I've said that there's an extra feature in there, which is Jonquil Panting and I talking about the research process. We recorded it down at the National Archives: curse those pesky jets on finals for Heathrow.  It's currently on the BBC website but I don't know how long that'll last.

Older stories. Pix and sound from a BBC feature I made in November 2017 about D51 Deborah in Flesquieres:

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, doing my world-famous impression of a man at ease in a suit.

Also it was nice not to get the traditional thorough kicking off Feedback on Radio 4. In fact they were very positive about the show. Would that I could say that about many of my previous productions, oh boy.
