In 2019, I took on a regular column for Stage, Screen and Radio, the quarterly magazine for media and entertainment union BECTU, and a constituent part of Prospect – the union for professionals. Previously, the column had been written – for no fewer than 100 issues – by Roger Darlington, whose columns (stretching right back to 2003) can be accessed at the relevant bit of Roger’s website.
At the point of publication, the columns are for members only and feature proper production values as well as a regular illustrative cartoon from the imagination (and pen) of Tony Kelly. Historically, however, the texts of the columns can be accessed via the links below.
Winter: Now in research stage
Autumn:Mobile licence fees: market still not realised? (now in print; available to BECTU members only)
Summer: Mobile phones and the FUD factor
Spring: Are we hanging up on landlines?
