BBC North in partnership with BBC Writersroom are delighted to host a Q&A with the Emmy and BAFTA award-winning Liverpool screenwriter, Jimmy McGovern.
Jimmy started out on Brookside and his vast body of seminal, multi-award-winning work for TV since includes Cracker, The Lakes, Hillsborough, Dockers, Sunday, Gunpowder, Treason and Plot, The Street, Moving On, Accused and Common.
Jimmy will be talking about his life and career in television drama and film, from his exploration of faith and sexuality in the controversial Priest to his interrogation of the perversities of the British legal system in the recent BBC Drama, Common. He’ll be sharing his journey as a writer and his passion for socially and emotionally powerful stories, giving insights in to his writing process and how he creates and develops characters.
This is a unique opportunity to put your questions to Jimmy, who will be in conversation with Henry Swindell (Development Producer, BBC Writersroom).
