Mindfulness and Teens - Will They Ever Work Together?

Ruby Wax | Posted 17.07.2015 | UK Entertainment

Each generation thinks their parents have screwed up the world. The teen's job is to clean up his parent's mistakes and blame them for being selfish, greedy bastards who just think about themselves and are to blame for the world being a mess, the ice cap melting and the fact that there are no jobs or money because we've spent it all. (On these points they're right on all fronts).

Creativity and Age

I think there is this weird idea floating around that creativity is a young person's game, particularly certain genres of creativity (photography and music for sure). That somehow you are at your peak creatively in your twenties and thirties, and then it's downhill from then on. I think that's insane.

Why Auntie ‎Matters

‎The BBC has many fans and many adversaries. Those who'd like to see it change include other media outlets, led by Sky and the Mail, and right-wing politicians who believe that Auntie is stuffed with Guardian-reading granola eaters (although it is always worth noting that some on the left see her as fundamentally reactionary).

We Face a Big Choice About the Kind of BBC We Want in the Future

Tony Hall | Posted 14.07.2015 | UK
Tony Hall

The BBC does not belong to its staff. The BBC does not belong to the Government. The BBC belongs to the country. The public are our shareholders - they pay for us. So it is their voice that will matter most in this debate. And what the public wants is a continually better BBC. So that will be our test for any future proposals. Will audiences be even happier with what they get from us? Is the BBC still able to give them the best output in the world? Have we helped the creative industries grow? That, to me, is the real debate - and the only debate that really matters.

I Don't Find Writing a Woman as Comfortable as Writing a Man - I Actively Prefer It

Jonathan Freedland | Posted 06.07.2015 | UK Entertainment
Jonathan Freedland

I found it oddly comfortable to return to writing a heroine rather than a hero - my first female lead since I wrote The Chosen One, published under my pseudonym, Sam Bourne, in 2010. I instantly felt at ease, guided by that sense that I knew Madison - how she would think, how she would speak, even how she would try to get to sleep in the long, slow hours of the night.
