ROYAL COMMAND
It’s just over a month until Studio Space is in Previews and so today because it was a very nice day with proper winter sunshine, I took my camera and tripod to Alexandra Palace to take some shots. Located north of Wood Green and south of Muswell Hill in north London and perched on a hill, Alexandra Palace (or Ally Pally as it is known) has some spectacular views of London and you can see all the way to the City. Built in 1873, it has burnt down twice, apparently due to a gypsy curse, held German prisoners of war in the First World War and it was the first place in 1936 that the BBC made the first public television transmissions. So here are a few photos for you to enjoy…

A NEW FREQUENCY
So Happy New Year everyone. My first post of 2008 is the other radio interview I did last Friday for the BBC’s The World programme. I’m not that keen on listening to my own voice, so it still feels a little bit strange but hopefully I’ll get better at this radio lark. My friend Steve Colgan was kind enough to extract the file and turn it into something that can be played (http://stevecolgan.blogspot.com/)…

Next post will be a review of Sweeney Todd which I’m seeing on Friday, and I’ll be outlining feature rundown for this year’s TRIPWIRE Annual
