BONUS: Sally Wainwright in conversation with Russell T Davies

Olly Mann introduces one of The Media Podcast's favourite sessions from this year's Edinburgh International Television Festival: Sally Wainwright, writer (and often director) of Happy Valley, is quizzed by friend and fellow writer Russell T. Davies (Queer As Folk, Doctor Who) on her career.

From working on Coronation Street to creating At Home With The Braithwaites, to recent successes Last Tango In Halifax and Happy Valley, Sally discusses her craft, making the leap from writing to directing and shares the best advice she's ever been given.

A PPM production. Shared with the kind permission of the Edinburgh International Television Festival. Thanks to our sponsors, Media Masters ( and to all our voluntary subscribers.
