Trust Me screening and Q&A

RTS NW are delighted to announce our next fantastic event, a screening of Trust Me, the brand new drama thriller made by Red Production Company for BBC One. Plus an exclusive panel discussion about ‘women in television’. Are we doing enough to bring more women into the industry? Why are drama directors predominantly male? Is there a fundamental flaw in how we are hiring our crews?

Robert “Judge” Rinder was speaking about his career – from would-be actor to television presenter via the Bar and British Overseas Territories – with Granada Reports presenter Lucy Meacock at an RTS North West event at the Lowry in June. He has fronted the ITV daytime show Judge Rinder, in which he arbitrates over civil cases, since its launch in 2014.

Give me the child for his first seven years, and I will give you the man.” This nature-nurture Jesuit maxim has been the lodestone of the legendary documentary series Up since it began in 1964.

Originally intended by Granada as a one-off, Seven Up! looked at the lives of a group of seven-year-olds from a variety of social backgrounds and areas of the UK, breaking convention by interviewing just the children.
