    Hello Listeners!

    I hope you’ve enjoyed listening to the second series of the Docs & More podcast, where you’ve been able to hear from award-winning and Oscar nominated directors!!

Growing up in Mongolia she grew up with a love of storytelling and started working for Mongolian television once she had completed her education. She’s worked on entertainment, drama and live tv shows. Deciding to learn more about documentary film making, she moved to the UK, and following her Masters, she completed her film,  The Nomadic Doctor.  The film was shortlisted for the Best Student Academy Award – better known as the Oscars and won a gold medal, as well as winning a whole host of other awards!!

    Docs & More: Joel Bakan

    This week I’m joined by one of the co-directors of the incredible documentary, The New Corporation – the Unfortunately Necessary Sequel.  Described by Forbes magazine as the ‘must see documentary of the year’,  the film charts how our democracies are in danger, thanks to the rise of corporations. Connecting stories from around the world the film examines economic inequality, racial injustice, climate change and much more. One half of this impressive directing duo is the award-winning director Jennifer Abbott, and the other is a professor of law at the University of British Columbia, a writer and also film maker, Joel Bakan.

    Docs & More: Erika Cohn

    This week my guest is a Peabody and Emmy Award-winning director and producer, Erika Cohn. Her latest documentary film, The Belly of the Beast, uncovers a pattern of illegal sterilisations taking place in a woman’s prison in the USA. It exposes the thinking of the doctors who carried out these procedures, who literally believe they can play God and decide on the future fate of women which will affect the rest of their lives and violates their human rights.

    Docs & More: Mia Donovan

    This week I’m joined by a film maker, Mia Donovan, from Montreal in Canada.  Her latest documentary film, Dope is Death, explores how the Black Panthers and the Young Lords became active in their communities helping people come of drugs  without any side effects – using acupuncture.  This was 1973. And this project was seen as a threat by the US government.

    Docs & More: Diana Neille and Richard Poplak

    Joining me this week on the Docs & More podcast, are two film makers, chronicling an extra-ordinary story. Diana Neille and Richard Poplak’s debut documentary, Influence,  charts the world of advertising and PR, Bell Pottinger and the late Sir Timothy Bell. He’s probably best known as Margaret Thatcher’s, the former British Prime Minister, favourite spin doctor who relied on him to bring in results. The film looks at the man and the firm and what they did and how it all fell apart.
