In the course of making cinema programmes for TV and Radio, we’ve carried out some detailed, lengthy interviews with leading figures from the film world – such as Simon Fisher Turner, Stephen Frears, Gary Oldman, Tim Roth and Tilda Swinton. However, only a fraction of any given interview ends up being used for TV. This seems like a scandalous waste of vital film-related information. So, we thought it would make sense, and fascinating reading, to offer up full versions of our key interviews as transcriptions to use as reference material. We hope you like what you find. And if you make use of the interviews for reference purposes, it would be appreciated if you could credit 400Blows Productions, and our website www.400blows.co.uk.
