RTS London is pleased to support these Festival events:
In Conversation with Julian Fellowes: Hear from the author and creator of Downton Abbey. This multi award-winning writer, producer, actor and author discusses his string of hit productions in theatre, film and television which also includes Oscar winning Gosford Park, Mary Poppins and Half a Sixpence.
The Agony and the Ecstasy of Phil Spector: Documentary screening and Q&A: Phil Spector changed the face of modern music, becoming the first music producer to be a star in his own right and creating some of the biggest hits of the 20th century. In 2007, he was put on trial, accused of murdering LA nightclub hostess Lana Clarkson. His conviction of murder in 2009 changed Spector’s fame to notoriety. This documentary uses footage from an exclusive interview filmed in March 2007, combined with clips from his first trial, to explore world-famous hits from a previously unseen perspective. The Q&A will be with Vikram Jayanti, the film’s director and chaired by Edward Hall, the Artistic Director of Hampstead Theatre.
Who Do You Think You Are? The hugely successful TV programme, Who Do You Think You Are? traces celebrities’ ancestry, discovering surprises from their families’ past along the way. First aired in 2004, the show regularly attracts over 6 million viewers and has investigated the family histories of over 100 celebrities including Stephen Fry, Jeremy Irons, Boris Johnson and Zoe Wanamaker. The producer and the director of the show will discuss the series with Celia Imrie talking about what it’s like to uncover your family history.
The Durrells: Based on Gerald Durrell’s popular autobiographical book trilogy (including My Family and Other Animals), The Durrells television series tells the story of the Durrell family adjusting to their new life in Corfu in the 1930s. The writer and producer of the show, alongside Callum Woodhouse, who plays Leslie Durrell, join this panel to discuss taking the story from page to screen.
