So great to have you @NYTofGB VIP’s in the house& Dame Helen Mirren’s fantastic generosity!

We were delighted (and very lucky) to welcome @ZaweAshton to the @BFI & @RadioTimes #TVFest with @gaylene_g today to discuss her new book, particularly because she’s right in the middle of a production of #Betrayal at @HPinterTheatre!

Host @gaylene_g opens the session of Unforgotten by asking writer/creator Chris Lang “I hear there was a fantastic venue where you thought of the show?”
“Yes it was right here at the @BFI in the cafe upstairs” #TVfest with @TVSanjeev, Nicola Walker and exec producer Laura Mackie

If you like love stories @rafikimovie has it all. @rafikimovie is game changing cinema and
@wanuri is a game changing creative force. SUPPORT BOTH, you’ll be changed for the better. 💘
