“Must be the genius that is David Bowie with Life on Mars.  Kim in my flat in my first year at Manchester was mad on Bowie, I mean seriously nuts about him; posters, occasional crying, constant references.  I learnt everything I needed to know about him from her and all his tracks, every single one, is brilliant.” Sophie Aldred

“The 80s was full of brilliant films … I loved the Indiana Jones trilogy ..and another particular favourite was WORKING GIRL .. and WITNESS .. and yes, they do all have a common theme…”  Clare Eden

“Do The Right Thing” David Annen

“My problem is I have such a butterfly mind that I can’t remember anything I’ve seen long term. This is quite fun as I can see a movie many times and simply not remember the ending!  I remember the experience of the movie, who I was with, what I felt like etc. rather than the story or the characters. So with that in mind it’s Bladerunner, When Harry met Sally, Blue Velvet, Stand by Me, Raging Bull (Simon took me to that one as he loooooved Robert de Niro), Desperately Seeking Susan, One From the Heart, Paris, Texas, My Beautiful Launderette, Sid and Nancy…. Maybe a more girly list than Trev and Simon… “Sophie Aldred
