(Hi Daniel, if you’re reading this, I really want you to know how much I admire you as an actor.)
And what I really really liked was that Danny Boyle – and Frank Cottrell Boyce as well – reminded the world of the two things which any wealthy and decent society ought to provide for its people – namely, free healthcare and books. So the NHS and Libraries then ;-)
And before I go, here’s news of another competition. And it’s truly great. The people at www.movellas.com and www.mykindabook.com have come up with a fantastic opportunity for young film-makers. All you have to do is read What’s Up With Jody Barton? – or the extract on either website – and make a short trailer for the book which doesn’t give the twist away! And me and the winner get to have a slap-up lunch together in London. And the winner also gets a load of books from Pan Macmillan. There are runner-up prizes too. So what the heck are you waiting for? Get your cameras out, please, I’m starving…
