    It was a great treat to be joined for another of our Tortoise Shack Live in #LockDown podcasts by filmmaker, director and Live Line content creator, Lenny Abrahamson. Caroline, Tony and Martin ask Lenny about the (unforeseen?) success of Normal People, the good and bad reactions to the sex scenes and the thought and care that went into the consent putting consent on screen.



    We also get an insight into Lenny's upcoming project, A Mans World - the Emile Griffith Story.



    Then our brilliant members, including some familiar voices ask some terrific questions. Enjoy.
