Jimmy McGovern, James Schamus, Alexi Kaye Campbell

Jimmy McGovern is a writer well-known for bringing controversial stories to our televisions with dramas like Hillsborough and Accused. He has now written Reg, a feature-length film for BBC One, which tells the true story of Reg Keys, who decided to run against Tony Blair in the 2005 election as a protest against the Iraq War. He explains why he decided to bring the tale to our screens. James Schamus has been behind some of the most successful independent films of the last 15 years including Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Brokeback Mountain, Lost in Translation, Atonement and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, as a producer, screenwriter and former head of Focus Features. Now he makes his directorial debut with Indignation, based on Philip Roth's novel. While in London for the Sundance Film Festival, he came into Front Row to talk about his first directing role and the future of independent film-making. Playwright Alexi Kaye Campbell, author of the 2008 multi-award winner The Pride, has set his latest play Sunset at the Villa Thalia on the Greek island of Skiathos in the turbulent 1960s and 70s. He explains how it evokes the idyllic charms of island life while exploring how foreign influence has shaped the country's destiny, and why he had to live in Greece to write it.
