New Hot Radio Show

I’ve got a show on Hot Radio 102.8FM (The FM part is the most important bit!)

Some of you may already be aware of this but as last week’s show was the first I got carried away with other things and completely forgot to promote it – so chances are you haven’t heard any of it yet.

You can catch me Thursday evenings between 10pm and midnight, for a lot of people that might be in the taxi on your to a night out, or a cheeky listen before hitting the pillow.

The show runs quite differently to my Nerve Radio show, I’ve cleaned up my act when it comes to gay related puns – they don’t even have my surname in the jingles!

My regular features include chain reaction and cover to cover, I’d tell you what they are but I wouldn’t it be great if you listened in and you found out for yourself!

So you can tune in on 102.8 FM in the Poole, Bournemouth and the surrounding areas or you can listen online at hot1028.co.uk

Elaine’s Story – The Care Division

In a side project to our course studies, a group of journo’s and I agreed to create this video for the Care Division and Dot Community.

It is a video showing what Elaine’s life is like now she is out of institutional care and living within the Poole and Bournemouth community. It was the first time any of us had worked with someone with learning disabilities and made for an interesting and important learning experience.

Also we were pleased to be treated like a production company in our efforts, so as well as being paid for this production we also understood we needed to follow a client’s brief.

Although we all helped each other, our roles were roughly:

Director: Charlotte Gay

Editor: Alice Simons-Denville

Camera: Ben Tyrer

Sound: James Hibberd

For more information on Elaine’s life, I’ve written a small online feature about people with learning disabilities living in the community here.

Charlie Baker interview March 2012

As someone who is relatively new to the stand up scene Charlie Baker has a remarkably familiar face. You have probably seen him playing a cameo role in Doctor Who or IT Crowd, but this all singing; all tap dancing funny man is has more than enough tricks up his sleeve to keep you entertained when he performs at the Plough Arts Centre this April.

This recording includes some questions about his Bournemouth date to for its broadcast on Nerve Radio.

The feature below is published today in the North Devon Journal before his date at the Plough Arts Centre.

A trance encounter – The Rock

I wrote this feature after working on the documentary The Truth Behind Hypnotherapy. This gives a more detailed personal account of the hypnosis process than the documentary.

The Truth Behind Hypnotherapy.

I was approached by BA TV students to help present this documentary, aiming to uncovering the mysteries surrounding the treatment.

It was a strange experience and I have written more about it in an upcoming feature for The Rock. However, in the meantime, enjoy the documentary.
