So the Harvey Goldsmith / Saxon doc aired (no pun intended...no, really) tonight on Channel 4. I was a little bit anxious but luckily they didn't show the footage of me 'meeting' Mr Goldsmith, so I'll recreate the moment for you here. He entered a room, said "Hi, you must be Amanda? I'm Harvey Goldmith". I said, "How do you do?" and resumed my conversation with the man from the book of records. Ten minutes later, Le Harv approaches me again, "Hi, you must be Amanda? I'm Harvey Goldmith". I said, "How do you do?" but this time, I also pull a perplexed face as I ponder, "Is this man drunk?". Three days later, and having been calling Harvey 'Mr Goldfish' wherever I went , I experienced a dawn of realisation as I twigged that someone from his production company must have said, "Oh Mr Goldsmith, the mic wasn't working properly when you introduced yourself to that air guitar nutter - can you do it again?" Doh indeed.
Anyway, the promo for our very own baby is ready to roll now. So if you a high faluting commissioning editor whose appetite has been whetted then drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
p.s documentary website coming soon!
