Hello and welcome to this special edition of the podcast from the London Film Festival, where Robert has managed to obtain press accreditation. This episode covers two ‘red carpet’ events that he attended as well as a couple of press and industry showings.

Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg? (Timestamp: 01m09s)
This was the first red carpet event Robert attended and was for a new children’s film. This section includes interviews with Danny Stack, Tim Clague, Hattie Gotobed, JJ Brown, Jonah Alexander, Loretta Walsh and James Grogan. The interview section ends with an interview with producer Jan Caston which was carried out by Donna from the Frankly, My Dear blog (www.franklymydearuk.co.uk), our thanks to Donna for allowing us to publish this interview. The interviews were carried out from a loud cinema foyer so the sound levels are variable.
Bone Tomahawk (Timestamp: 13m29s)
This was the second red carpet event Robert attended and was for a new western-horror film that sees Kurt Russell (above) return to the saddle. This section includes interviews with producers Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller, and director S Craig Zahler. The interviews were carried out from outside the Leicester Square Odeon cinema.
Valley of Love (Timestamp: 19m28s)
This is a French feature film starring Gérard Depardieu and Isabelle Huppert as a divorced couple who meet up after many years following the death of their son some six months earlier.
Sherpa (Timestamp: 21m12s)
This is a documentary film about the 2014 Everest climbing season and the tragedy that beset it. Originally intended to look at tensions that have been building between the Sherpas and the westerners in recent years, and also to follow one particular Sherpa as he attempts his 22nd ascent to the summit (which would be a world record), the documentary changes tack following a massive ice fall that kills sixteen Sherpas and leaves many injured.
