Congratulations to Andy Mulligan - TRASH - the film based on his bestselling novel - has been nominated today for a BAFTA in the Best Foreign Film category. Although the book is obviously written in English, the amazing child actors discovered in the Rio favelas by Stephen Daldry speak Portuguese, hence the sub-titling of the film and the Foreign Film category.

We're dancing round the office! Just heard this morning that the film of Andy Mulligan's 2010 TRASH, directed by Stephen Daldry, has just won top prize at the 9th Rome Film Festival that closed this weekend.

Evenings drawing in...and that means that Autumnwatch's presenter is off getting very cold and wet in preparation for the new series which starts at the end of the month. (He's currently in Estonia checking out migrating Bewick swans.) Martin's hilarious memoirs of his years behind (rather than in front of) the camera making wildlife programmes are being published in the Spring by Constable. We've just seen the cover (brilliant) and the in house lawyers are just giving it the OK....
