My Central African Experience

Working on Unreported World in a country like CAR is physically and emotionally draining. Painful even. At the end of it you come back to the UK with a load of footage and it's like arriving back from hospital with a new-born - that feeling I do know. You're filled with a mixture of fear and responsibility, knowing you have to do the story and the people justice.

Despite the empowering message of the song, the video for Hard Out Here has received a lot of criticism, particularly for it's supposedly racist undertones. However, I completely support Allen in what she is trying to achieve, and I wish that others - particularly women - would do the same.

Could Norway's Boring TV Be Your Next Audiovisual Addiction?

In 2009 the state broadcasting company NRK celebrated the centenary of one of the engineering wonders of the world, the East-West railway from Oslo to Bergen, in a characteristically Norwegian fashion. The famous journey was filmed and broadcasted not framed in grandeur or excitement, but in real time, slowly chugging, warts and all, over six hours, from beginning to end.

It is only a couple of days now to the next Aldeburgh Documentary Festival which I have been curating for the last few years... Someone wrote that we punch above our weight at this festival, and I have spent much of today trying to make sure we keep up the standard.

Dear Bobby...

How difficult it can be at times to spot your grief for mummy. While we quite rightly do not use it as an excuse for every minor indiscretion, it is at times so glaringly obvious that the very worst you can ever throw at me is undeniably a direct consequence of the turmoil you occasionally feel inside. Yet although I know and accept its origins, why do I always allow it to hit me so personally and so deeply?

T. Anthony Patterson

Thank you for your speech Mr. Umunna but unfortunately you do not speak for me. While there is some merit to your remarks, I, for one am, quite annoyed and not having any of it. While its understood that the media should portray an all-encompassing image of black people in hopes of dispelling negative perceptions, your call to action will simply not work.

How Adele Represents a Renaissance for the British Accent

Jacob Brookman

So if American accents historically sell better, why does Boy George's singing style sound so passé? One word: Adele. Oasis, Coldplay and the Arctic Monkeys may have paved the way, but in terms of commercial and critical success, Adele is a genuine game changer when it comes to British-sounding vocals.

Setting off on my third fundraising cycling trip for Norwood wasn't a hard choice. One year previously I had embarked into the unknown with a group of strangers to Sri Lanka and had come back a changed person. It was only natural that in my often hectic world full of responsibility I would want to immerse myself in another culture...

Last week I received a message inviting me to be a contestant on ITV1's premium douchefest Take Me Out. I've been invited to appear on a few TV shows. I'm not saying this to boast, because god knows what kind of person would think that being seen as an easy mark by a 12-year-old researcher for a jaw-clenching turn on something like Wife Swap...

I had no burning desire to see Escape Plan, the new action thriller starring Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. However, when it's your day off and it looks like the best thing on offer at your local multiplex, it may as well be worth a look. And it is.
