Jimmy McGovern in Conversation: Give the Devil the Best Tunes

09/10/2016, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

- £7

Part of our Associated Events Programme; with Borderlines Carlisle Book Festival

Jimmy McGovern’s television dramas – among them, Cracker, The Lakes, Hillsborough, Sunday, The Street, Accused, Reg – have won multiple BAFTAs and International Emmys. Crime novelist Isabelle Grey is one of many screenwriters with whom he has collaborated. She will be asking him about storytelling, character, dramatising true events and his love of classic Westerns.

Jimmy McGovern was born in postwar Liverpool. He left school at 16 and did lots of unskilled jobs until, in his twenties, he went back to education and trained to be a teacher. He started writing seriously in 1982 on Brookside and has been writing television drama and films ever since.

Isabelle Grey, a former journalist, has contributed numerous episodes to long-running TV series, including The Bill, Wycliffe, Midsomer Murders and, with Jimmy McGovern, Accused. Her crime novels, Good Girls Don’t Die and Shot Through The Heart, are set in Essex and feature DI Grace Fisher; the third in the series, The Special Girls, is out in April 2017.
