The book, Creative Documentary: Theory and Practice, which I co-authored with Wilma de Jong and Jerry Rothwell has finally been published by Pearson Education through their imprint, Longman. This is a very comprehensive and thought-provoking book about the practice of making documentary films and I hope that anyone interested in making documentaries, or simply interested in the making of documentaries, will find it useful. It’s available now through good bookshops like Amazon.
