Dr Simone Knox interviewed for BBC Radio Berkshire about diversity and the creative industries

Dr Simone Knox was interviewed by Bridgitte Tetteh for BBC Radio Berkshire about diversity and the creative industries. The interview drew on her research on the lived experience of screen culture and especially the work of actors, on which she has previously blogged for Flow. Simone spoke about the challenges faced by anyone, but especially those of a minority identity and/or non-privileged background, wishing to pursue a career in film, television and/or theatre. She further offered some reflections on the current high-profile debates about on- and off-screen diversity, led by Lenny Henry, Equity and the Act for Change project. The interview was broadcast on 5 July 2015, and is available until shortly after the end of July here.
