I was born on D-Day, the youngest child of a militant Welsh ex-coal miner and a Brixton-born merchant sea-woman and laundry worker. Afte leaving school at 15 I worked at many jobs in many places: long-distance lorry driver, clerk, labourer, community worker, film researcher, archaelogist and magazine editor among them. As a mature student I studied media design at Plymouth Art achool and, later, Early Modern History at the University of Wales. I am now doing historical research for another film and co-writing the script.
