Synopsis 

Shetland Series 4

Originally created from award-winning writer Ann Cleeves’ bestselling novels, gripping crime series Shetland returns to find DI Jimmy Perez (Douglas Henshall) facing murders from the past and present with unsettling similarities in this new single mystery. When Shetlander, Thomas Malone, has his conviction for the murder of teenager Lizzie Kilmuir overturned after 23 years behind bars, Perez must reopen the investigation. Many in the close-knit island community still believe Malone to be guilty, so when his return coincides with the murder of a local journalist, he’s very firmly in the frame. As both cases become increasingly complex, stretching to Norway and into the murky world of far right extremist groups, Perez is pushed to the limit both professionally and personally. He’s as determined as ever not to give up, but, as he closes in on the truth, the investigation will lead him closer to home that he could ever have imagined.

Shetland S1 – 4 

Originally created from the novels by award-winning writer Ann Cleeves (Vera) and set against a hauntingly beautiful landscape, Shetland follows DI Jimmy Perez (Douglas Henshall) and his team as they investigate complex crimes within a close-knit island community. In this isolated and sometimes inhospitable environment, the team must rely on a uniquely resourceful style of policing. Series one and two are based on bestselling books Red Bones, Raven Black, Dead Water and Blue Lightning. In the third and fourth series, both single original stories, Perez first tackles a conspiracy that takes him back to the Scottish mainland, in a case that will exact a terrible personal toll on both him and his team, and must then face murders from the past and present with unsettling similarities, in an investigation that will lead him closer to home than he could ever have imagined.

‘A Wild Ride’ with Aaron Sorkin – On The Side Of The Angels

‘A Wild Ride’ with Aaron Sorkin – On The Side Of The Angels

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Aaron Sorkin is an award winning writer of global repute – emerging onto the scene in 1992 with the stage version of A Few Good Men which was nominated for a Golden Globe. Since then he has written The American President (1995) and Malice (1993), as well as cooperating on Enemy of the State (1998), The Rock (1996) and Excess Baggage (1997). He was also invited by Steven Spielberg to “polish” the script of Schindler’s List (1993). Sorkin’s TV credits include the Golden Globe-nominated The West Wing (1999) and Sports Night(1998).

After making his recent debut as a Film Director with Molly’s Game, Sorkin can now be trusted to speak with conviction on all aspects of the Industry and Politics. When asked about Trump for instance, he doesn’t hold back, and describes the President as visibly psychotic and dangerous.

Sorkin read the Book, Molly’s Game which he described as ‘A wild ride’, but was ultimately convinced to become involved in its development after he met the Author, Molly Bloom who writes about her own experiences of going from near Olympic ski-ing champion to the misogynistic World of Hollywood where she succeeded to aspire to the heights of the Hollywood Elite.

It was not an easy ride for Molly, who was faced with huge barriers from her male counterparts and endless prejudice from the opposite sex. She was subjected to an FBI investigation for her underground Poker empire with celebrities, athletes, and the Russian mob.

Bloom ultimately broke all the boundaries and succeeded against the odds, in spite of the obstacles she endured.

Sorkin describes both Molly Bloom the author and Molly’s Game the Book as ‘inspirational’ and ‘full of integrity’. He describes how he felt compelled to be part of its journey onto the big screen as soon as he met Molly Bloom, and how he knew it was a story that had to be told.

Critics are already full of praise for Sorkin’s directorial debut, and are calling it a ‘masterpiece’ and an ‘iconic work of art’.

Molly is played in the film by Jessica Chastain, who Sorkin describes as a wonderfully outspoken Actor, whom he completely supports, and who he says is ‘on the side of the angels’.

Sorkin describes the film as uncannily timely, with the recent contentions that have rocked the Industry.

On the subject of the allegations coming out of Hollywood, Sorkin feels strongly that all of the victims need to be heard, but that the accused should be taken seriously too and describes it as a ‘biblical flood’ with the Dam that has recently burst.

He quotes Jane Fonda who says that men have to stand up for women in Hollywood and the rest of the World. Sorkin agrees, but says that in order to do that, men who care must be allowed into the fight, and that those men and women are ultimately on the same team.

He urges us women to listen and trust in our male allies, after all we need to recruit soldiers – and why be gender specific when we have warriors already waiting in the wings.

Petrova and the Swan – An Inspiring new book for children

Petrova and the Swan – An Inspiring new book for children

Reading Time: 2 minutes
Written and beautifully illustrated by my mother, Roslyn Bertram, this is the story of my discovery of ballet.

Roslyn Bertram

I came across this enchanting hand typed manuscript that my Mother had put together. It was after she passed away, while looking through pages of her books and diaries, that I found it. The folder was complete and the sketches still together.

 

I had always remembered this work, as it stuck out in my mind more than any of her other projects. I’d often mention it to her and she always replied with: –

“Oh it’s not that good really. It was just fun at the time.”

Now I am able to share this book as an example of my mother’s unseen talent, coupled with the story of my own childhood and I hope that not only will you love it, but also you will find within its pages a new inspiration for your own dreams.

I have done my very best to keep the contents as she wrote it and only hope that through my edit I have simply clarified and enhanced her vision.

See and Read the original Harry Potter pitch by JK Rowling

See and Read the original Harry Potter pitch by JK Rowling

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Unbelievably Harry Potter has been around for 20 years, yes the first novel by JK Rowling – The Philosopher’s Stone appeared two decades ago.

And even more unbelievable is that it was sent to twelve publishers before being picked up by the publisher Bloomsbury.

Now JK Rowling is one of the world’s most famous writers of our time, very influential and worth a handsome sum too.

JK Rowling’s original pitch has gone on display at London’s British Library to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Potter entitled: Harry Potter a History of Magic

The pitch starts off with Harry living with the Dursleys and very similar to the final version in the book.

So the moral to this story is Never Give Up because how ever many rejections you have someone will buy into your project or fund your idea. Just keep going.

Here is the start of JK’s pitch, just to whet your appetites:

“Harry Potter lives with his aunt, uncle and cousin because his parents died in a car-crash — or so he has been told. The Dursleys don’t like Harry asking questions; in fact, they don’t seem to like anything about him, especially the very odd things that keep happening around him (which Harry himself can’t explain).

“The Dursleys’ greatest fear is that Harry will discover the truth about himself, so when letters start arriving for him near his eleventh birthday, he isn’t allowed to read them. However, the Dursleys aren’t dealing with an ordinary postman, and at midnight on Harry’s birthday the gigantic Rubeus Hagrid breaks down the door to make sure Harry gets to read his post at last. Ignoring the horrified Dursleys, Hagrid informs Harry that he is a wizard, and the letter he gives Harry explains that he is expected at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in a month’s time.

“To the Dursleys’ fury, Hagrid also reveals the truth about Harry’s past. Harry did not receive the scar on his forehead in a car-crash; it is really the mark of the great dark sorcerer Voldemort, who killed Harry’s mother and father but mysteriously couldn’t kill him, even though he was a baby at the time. Harry is famous among the witches and wizards who live in secret all over the country because Harry’s miraculous survival marked Voldemort’s downfall.

“So Harry, who has never had friends or family worth the name, sets off for a new life in the wizarding world. He takes a trip to London with Hagrid to buy his Hogwarts equipment (robes, wand, cauldron, beginners’ draft and potion kit) and shortly afterwards, sets off for Hogwarts from Kings Cross Station (platform nine and three quarters) to follow in his parents’ footsteps.

“Harry makes friends with Ronald Weasley (sixth in his family to go to Hogwarts and tired of having to use second-hand spellbooks) and Hermione Granger (cleverest girl in the year and the only person in the class to know all the uses of dragon’s blood). Together, they have their first lessons in magic — astronomy up on the tallest tower at two in the morning, herbology out in the greenhouses where the…”

If you want to read more then you need to visit the exhibition.

You can also see original drafts and drawings by J.K. Rowling and illustrator Jim Kay, both on display for the first time.

Harry Potter: A History of Magic runs from Friday 20th October to Wednesday 28th February. Tickets cost £16 adults, £8 students.
