Sorry for slow uplod of blogs which my guest are here but our agenda for the 2 weeks in Manchester was intense and productive. Once word had got around most of my media friends wanted to meet Råfilm Collective members, so one friend called Karen Gabay from the BBC arranged for them to visit and took them on a tour of the building and they even got to sit on replica of Breakfast TV sofa.
Later in the week Talat went back to the BBC to have an interview about his latest documentary.
The following day was a big day for me as for the last 8 months I’d been working on West African textiles project with Creative Hands Foundation and Whitworth Art Gallery. I was asked to also film the event and so had my guest armed with some of my kit.
