Yesterday by a stroke of serendipity I pressed a button and a most appealing group of programmes appeared, ‘ The Adventure of English’. I have little specialist knowledge but the magic that words carry with them as if they were casting a spell, has been with me from that time long ago when I learnt to read. ( I was too shy to speak very much ). The person introducing the programmes is Melvyn Bragg, I’ve tuned in to many of his programmes and read some of his books, so in the media sense we are old friends, although I know more about him than he knows about me. To be blunt he knows nothing about me, I have never made a television programme or had a book published. Life is just so unfair!!!
I have been a teacher and a lecturer for a number of years. I am married with two sons. I'm interested drama, films, TV, books, society in general, poverty and riches and political systems.
