About the Author

I’m a London-based journalist, producer and occasional script reader who’s fanatical about all things arts. I studied English, Film and Television at university, but four years of Barthes, Thompson, Williams et al wasn’t enough to put me off. I’ve worked in broadcasting for nearly ten years, mostly in television and online news (though any views expressed here are mine and not those of my employer). I love losing myself in a good story -and having opinions.

 

 

ABOUT ARTICLE TEN

“Everyone has the right to freedom of expression. this right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers.”

Article 10 is the section of the European Convention on Human Rights which allows for freedom of expression. While much of this site is intended to be light-hearted in tone, and although my day (and night) job requires me to remain neutral on certain topics, it’s a fundamental principle and one which, sadly, is not recognised everywhere.
