In this episode Tim speaks to Tom Williams about writing the true life war story; Kajaki. How did he hear about the story? How did he research it? How did he translate that raw information into a tight and highly dramatic narrative?

Apols for audio quality via Skype.

We talk about our new book, out soon, that sums up everything in the podcast so far. How can you earn a living as a writer? This book, the UK Scriptwriters Survival Guide, isn't about how to write, its about how to be a writer!

This podcast we spend over an hour talking to script editor Andrew Ellard. We felt these extra length was worth the level of his insights into some of your favourite shows. Plus we couldn't shut him up. Here is how he describes himself -

"I'm a writer and script editor. I’ve worked on various shows including Red Dwarf, The IT Crowd and Miranda. I also offer (paid) rewrite notes for your script. You may know me from Twitter (@ellardent) having seen my opinion/review #tweetnotes."

We recorded this at the Royal Festival Hall, so you get free background music with this one.

Lastly, Merry Christmas and hope 2015 is a good one for your writing projects.
