David Renwick In Conversation

David Renwick, creator of One Foot In The Grave and Jonathan Creek, joins us for a look back at his impressive writing history in an event chaired by TV writer and researcher Dick Fiddy. This includes his early work with writing partner Andrew Marshall on topical news show Weekending, with Renwick revealing how they bonded through a shared love of Absurdist comedy. As well as offering insights into his writing process, the symbiosis of comedy and tragedy is examined in this fascinating event, which formed part of the David Renwick: The Comic Philosopher Season at BFI Southbank.
