By Starling's World
What makes great stories and a great idea in television? What do you do when faced with an idea that has an element of the unknown, but might just work? David Glover is a documentary maker and former head of specialist factual at Channel 4, being responsible for documentaries and series including Gogglebox and The Man on the Bridge. He's also the founder of 72 Films with an impressive catalogue of documentaries to his name. He's made documentaries for everyone from the BBC to Netflix. Starling's World is a podcast about making it in the creative industries. Every two weeks, rising star Starling interviews a creative industry professional at the top of their game, from songwriters to film makers, producers, managers and agents, right up to major label execs. Creativity is a bitch: it creeps up on you in the bath, it’s not there when you plan for it and the path to success is as clear as trying to find your tent in a festival site. With no torch. Pop singer Starling has created a podcast interviewing top industry creatives including Bjork producer Damian Taylor, Former Head of Specialist Factual at C4 David Glover (he created Gogglebox), and many more. The aim? To help people aspiring to make it in the creative industries by learning from the experts: What makes them tick, how they got to the top of one of the world's toughest industries, their mistakes, triumphs, and the moments that made them who they are.
