6. A talk by DIWC Writer in Residence Tim Mackintosh-Smith

Words and images are the two main ways we communicate. But how do they relate to each other? Tim found out the hard way when he turned his books into a TV series. If you’re a budding writer or film/TV director – or both – you’ll find plenty of food for thought in his experiences (which include negotiating Delhi traffic on an elephant and hunting rats in the Crimea!)
