I need to raise between £50K – £100k in either investment or sponsorship revenue to make 10 x 25 minute episodes. Do you think you can help? And if so, what would you need […]

  • Sally Bercow on Big Brother…..does she, or any spouse, have a duty to their spouses job/role?

    By on August 28, 2011
    There is a thread on Mumsnet in the Feminism Section called ‘Sally Bercow on Big Brother…..does she, or any spouse, have a duty to their spouses job/role?’ The thread started by The Posie Parker raised the question: “She’s going in BB, her husband is a public, very public, servant does she make his position and role more difficult?” Are we […]

  • War Is A Risky Business

    By on April 27, 2011
    In three years, my direct contact with death, through war, now tolls at three. Dong: A young JTAC (Joint Terminal Air Controller – ie. Please drop that bomb here) I was introduced to by Hagar in the pub one night. We chatted a bit. I knew what a JTAC did because I had written about it in Immediate Response. He […]

  • Rest In Peace Tim Hetherington

    By on April 20, 2011
    Today, a star died. The world will be a slightly darker place without him. I am shocked and saddened by the news. My thoughts are with his loved ones and family. War is an ugly business and those in the business of war walk often in the Valley of Death. It was his time and I am honoured that I […]

  • Restrepo Pipped To The Gong By Inside Job

    By on February 28, 2011
    Alas Restrepo didn’t win the Oscar last night but they didn’t lose either. Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington have made a superb film documenting a harrowing deployment in Afghanistan. They brought a much greater awareness of the conflict to the world. Thank you to them for their sacrifice and commitment. But the war is not over for us, and as […]

  • Sebastian Junger Talking To Hollywood

    By on November 8, 2010
    Today, was definitely the highlight of my blogging life. In fact, maybe my literary life. I got to hang out for 40 minutes in my cupboard, with Sebastian Junger. It was brilliant. I am still buzzing. He’s such a top bloke. He wasn’t actually in my cupboard, I managed to hook him up on Skype, and we did a live […]

  • Three Milly Mums Restrepo Screening

    By on November 2, 2010
    14 days ago, Steph, Faith and I decided f*ck it we were going to become Dogwoof Film Ambassadors because we wanted to see if we could make a success of bringing the film Restrepo to the military and local community. We liked the idea of being involved in a franchise business that was about film. Steph had a media background […]

  • Me, Restrepo and Brendan O’Byrne

    By on November 1, 2010
    I am stuck on Planet Restrepo and I can’t get off. I didn’t sit on the side of that mountain and get pounded by gunman that wanted to shoot at Americans but I am somehow inextricably tied into this film and no matter how much I yell ‘stop the bus I want to get off’ I keep getting pulled back […]

  • I’m Trapped And I Am So Confused

    By on October 18, 2010
    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSNWeXGZMcU] [You have gotta a love a bit of Colonel Abrahams – although it did make a little bit of sick come up when I listened to it. I really hate 80’s music! Sorry – but seriously living through it once was enough. I don’t mind if you love it, and I’ll happily dance round your handbag with you should […]
