“Hi Carlo, Hope that you and yours are well. Yes you have my full permission to put my interview on the website”
Peter Long (15th September 2021)
Peter Long is a gently spoken man who doesn’t wear his talents on his sleeve. I had no idea that he had had a career in comedy script writing and there are some famous names dropped into the conversation. Pantomime writing is an enormous task which I suspect most people take for granted but if you listen to Peter you get an inkling of what a mammoth task it is.
He also talks about National Service; working at Silver Cross and a tussle with prostate cancer as well as his views on Brexit, the Royal Family and global warming.
