How To Be Bohemian
Friday, 5 June 2015
I spent the last few months making a three-part documentary series for BBC Four about Bohemians – who they are, what society loves and hates about them, what it learns from them… It’s a quirky series in that we’re talking and arguing about what the subject matter is and means, as much as we’re documenting it. There are some terrific guests (Grayson Perry, Maggi Hambling, Stephen Fry and John Cooper Clarke, among others) and I do think it’s a very good fun watch, full of interesting ideas, and I’m very pleased with it. I’ll also be amused to see myself getting increasingly large over the series, under increasingly baggy clothes, since I was three months pregnant when we started filming and eight months when we finished.
How To Be Bohemian starts this Monday night (June 8th) on BBC Four at 9pm, and continues on Mondays for the next two weeks after that. Hope you enjoy it if you watch.
