Getting to know James...
What’s your favourite film?
Either Saving Private Ryan or Ghostbusters, depending on what mood I’m in.
What telly are you addicted to?
I love documentaries. Anything with David Attenborough or Louis Theroux.
Where’s the best place you’ve travelled to?
Travelling up the East coast of Australia in a camper van with a few friends was quite spectacular.
What would be your specialist subject on Mastermind?
I love the tv show The Office (the UK version, of course). I know most of the quotes, far more than I probably should.
What’s your favourite sport to watch or play?
I used to play hockey at university and not played since. I’m hoping to start up again soon.
What’s the best soundtrack to a long car journey?
Phil Collins. I love passed on to me from my Dad. I went to see him at Hyde Park earlier this year. He’s still got it.
What’s the best thing about Manchester?
The people. That sounds cliché, but moving back from London, it’s really noticeable.
Sunday brunch or Sunday roast?
Sunday roast. No other meal beats it.

tucked away in the edit suite or… not in the office and out on a shoot.’
