Outside In Freebies

After this post about Outside In Makes It So Supplemental which contain no work form me, I discovered that ATB Publishing had given away several pdf freebies before and that one of them did feature my writing.

The first is Inside Outside In 2 which like the book that inspired it, is about Doctor Who since 2005. It features some work from Outside In 2 and some original writing as well: an introduction from Robert Smith?, an alternative take on Father's Day from Michael S. Collins, Death Is The Only Answer by Albert Einstein (as told to Kenyon Wallace), The Angels Take Manhattan by Jason A. Miller, The Night Of The Doctor by J.M. Frey, Prologue by me and The Doctor's Meditation by Robert Smith?

Th second is also Doctor Who related, This one was released a tribute to Jennifer Adams Kelley on the sad event of her death, Mise-En-Scene As A Narrative Force is her excellent piece on Logopolis, from the original Outside In.

And finally we have the Outside In Gains A Soul Sampler, which unsurprisingly samples Outside In Gains A Soul containing pieces on the Angel episodes Carpe Noctem by Trey Korte, Waiting In The Wings by Melissa Beattie, Unleashed by Roman Banias and You're Welcome by Jill Sherwin, alongside the Firefly instalment Objects In Space by David M. Barsky.

Again, if you enjoy these free slices of Outside In, please consider purchasing one of the books that spawned them. Again again, all money raised goes to Avert, a UK based AIDS charity.

Carleton In Lockdown Announced

So the first project that I am working on with PMH Productions is called Carleton In Lockdown and it concerns how the North Yorkshire village of Carleton-In-Craven has been affected by coronavirus and the lockdown in response to it.

Residents of the village were interviewed on their doorsteps about their experiences of lockdown. All interviews were conducted under strict social distancing guidelines and the film crew remained two metres away at all times.

The Craven Herald and Pioneer gave the documentary some coverage.

More details to follow...

Harry's Heroes On BBC Look North

I recently took a job working for PMH Productions and we are in the midst of filming a documentary, more on that subject later.

Footage from the documentary has been used this lunchtime on Look North, the local BBC News programme. It's part of a element of the show called Harry's Heroes, in which presenter Harry Gration praises public spirited individuals.

Vicky, who takes part in our documentary nominated her neighbours, the Churcher family as heroes. The Churchers have been playing a track every day at 12pm throughout lockdown. Dubbed the 'Tune at Noon', it got neighbours out of the houses for a dance to lift spirits. It lead to the 'Mix at Six' on a Friday, six songs at 6pm to start the weekend off.

You can see the footage in question here if you are in the UK until 1:45 tomorrow.

Carruthers Ten Years On: June 2010

June 2010 on the Carruthers blog. There was clearly nothing happening, so I created a number of posts using photos I'd taken in Bradford, including this one and this filth.

And these photos of Mike Everhard and Andy Cartwright.

The months are just flying by, aren't they?

I literally have no time to write a decent post today. I'm looking after a nearly sixteen month old. He's frustrated. I'm frustrated. He's just eaten the rubber off my pencil.
