'Keeping the Dream Alive' is a unique and intriguing memoir charting the life and times of how someone growing up on the wrong side of the tracks in a very poor working class environment in post-War Britain was able to journey to the glittering arena of Hollywood, providing an inspirational insight into how the one most likely to fail at school due to a special need battled and succeeded against all the odds to travel the world, founding and overseeing a prolific international independant television production company. But it is also a humorous journal and insight into the fertile imagination of a writer's mind and what life is like away from the red carpet and spotlight in the global world of motion pictures and television. 'Keeping The Dream Alive' reveals the unique story of how the cult series 'The Tribe' came into being. Along with a personal quest to exist and survive amidst the ups and downs and pressures of a long and successful career as a writer/producer, culminating in being appointed an Adjunct Professor and featuring in the New Years Honours List, recognised by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for services to television.

    I love this book! I've been watching The Tribe on tv regularly on ABC3 and it's a great read to see what went on into the making of one of the best programmes ever made!

    Kudos to the author for being so candid about working in the television and film industries and for revealing all the hard work and inspiration which resulted in making The Tribe.

    I take my hat off and recommend the book to all fellow lovers of the series, and to those interested in the mysteries and machinations of the tv industry
